In our previous poll we asked our readers: "If you were to buy a hi-def player which would be your pick?" Results were pretty much balanced. HD DVD stood out as the high-definition player of choice with 28.2 percent of the votes, versus Blu-ray's 20.1 percent, probably because of the former's lower priced hardware. 19.7 percent favored hybrid players capable of playing both formats, while the same number of people said they don't need HD. Interestingly, only 12.3 percent said they will wait until either dominates.
