After losing the format war against Sony (remember, the HD DVD vs. Blu-Ray thing), Toshiba has released its new XD-E500. The good things is that it uses Toshiba’s new eXtended Detail Enhancement technology (EDE) – which basically upconverts to fill the void between those upconverting players and Blu-Ray; and it costs US$150.

However, it does not play Blu-Ray; and Toshiba did not try to compare the new player with a Blu-Ray player, but compared it with a unnamed $70 upscaler.
