LG will stop production of its HD DVD/Blu-ray combo player this fall. LG follows Samsung's (Which also produced a Combo player) decision to only produce Blu-ray players.
"Surely, it is a very tough decision for us to halt the production of the combos, however, we will stop manufacturing the Super Blu series from the second half of this year," said a spokesman from LG Electronics.
The last combi players to be produced from LG and Samsung will be:
LG BH200 Super Blu Blu-Ray HD DVD Combo Player ($587)
Samsung BD-UP5000 1080p HD-DVD Blu-Ray Disc Combo Player ($490)
