LG’s “Super Blu” BH200 HD DVD / Blu-ray combo player now available

12 12 2007

After a slight delay and a false alarm, LG has finally announced that its “Super Blu” BH200 HD DVD / Blu-ray combo player is now available at retailers nationwide, for the not so low price of $999. In addition to playing both HD formats, the player also has the somewhat notable distinction of being the first player to support Blu-ray profile 1.1, although you’ll still have to wait a while to take advantage of that particular feature. Otherwise, you’ll get full 1080p support (including upscaling of DVDs), HDMI 1.3, component and composite video outputs, digital optical and analog audio outputs, and a LAN port, not to mention a USB port on the front for impromptu slide shows or music playback. Now, if only they’d work on getting the cost down to something less than the combined cost of an HD DVD and Blu-ray player, we’d be all set.
