Toshiba's BDX2000 To Be Company's First-Ever Blu-ray Player

Toshiba told us it was coming, and now the world can finally mark it down: the company famous for supporting HD DVD while everyone else sided with Blu-ray has finally decided to product its very own BD deck. Some might view this as the real death of HD DVD, as for the longest time, Toshiba would have nothing to do with the rival format that eventually killed the "red" format that it so dearly loved.

The BDX2000 will be forever known as Toshiba's first-ever Blu-ray Disc player, and it'll provide 1080p video output, Profile 2.0 (BD-Live) support, a smoked mirrored front panel, REGZA-LINK support, an SD card slot for loading up multimedia locally and AVCHD playback. The full list of highlights are below, and if you're interested, you can get in line for one starting this November for $249.99.
