Are you saying the HD-DVD tech isn't as good and shouldn't be a top-notch divice becaus it's external?(or what Sony fanboys call "JUST A ADD-ON)sadd and pathetic opinion if i ever read one. #1 you're about as bright as the Sun durring a eclipse also. I guess you work/hate with; what you got. Leave it alone.
