LG Blu-Ray HDDVD Ships
LG today announced that the BH100 is at last reaching US stores. Although word surfaced that it had already shipped in advance and was available as early as mid-January, the movie player should now be widely available throughout the US.
LG's device, known also as the Super Multi Blue, is the first drive of its kind to play both Blu-Ray and HD DVD movies, including at their native 1080p resolutions when using HDMI output. Its processor will also upscale DVDs to 1080i. The BH100 maintains its originally announced $1,200 list price.
