The price could be considered on the high-end but of course as of this moment no other manufacturer has announced a similar hybrid player. Features-wise you get the works with full HD resolution (1920x1080p), Interactive function (based on BD-J only, more on this later), HDMI out, and multiple A/V format support.
As a side note, just a day after the unveiling of the BH100, some controversy has raised on its HD DVD support part. Reportedly, LG does not offer support for HDi, which is HD DVDís version for an interactive menu system. The DVD Forum could require this for HD DVD certification, and as such LG could potentially be unable to promote its player dual playback functionality without DVD Forumís blessing.
