    Upon hearing rumors that Toshiba put a 2.5 GHz Pentium 4 CPU and a gig of PC2700 DDR RAM in their new $500 high definition set-top DVD player, I was intrigued. When I heard that they also put in a standard desktop HD-DVD reader, I had to buy one and see if these wild accusations were true. So I called around and found that just about the last one available in Phoenix was to be had at a Best Buy on the edge of town. $560 later it was mine, and on its way to the surgery table for close inspection.

    wow nice vid, def enjoyed watching it. really wished you had shown some of the actual player in use tho, the guts werent all that complex, although i did cringe when u picked up the whole mobo by the cpu's heatsink fan haha. still ashame the drive itself wasnt playable in current os's but no big shock there. look forward to updates

    The actual drive is a format that fits into a PC case. The rest seems to be just a PC.

    I think I would prefer to have just the drive unit to install in my own PC.

    And it would be even better as a burner or Blu-ray burner instead of just a player.
