Venturer SHD7000 player on sale at Wal-Mart

Chinese HD DVD player with a US$200 price


The
rumors of a cheap Chinese-built HD DVD player with a sub US$100 price tag have not yet come to pass, but the Venturer SHD7000 player is finally starting to show up in select Wal-Mart locations with a price tag of US$198.

When the original rumors of a low-cost Chinese-built HD DVD player for the 2007 holiday season started to circulate, no one would have thought that Toshiba would be the first to break the US$100 price barrier with a select blowout of its HD-A2 model. The Venturer was thought to be the first player to arrive at a below US$200 price point, which it has, but some were hoping in light of Toshiba’s aggressive pricing that the SHD7000 would be priced even lower.

The SHD7000 is pretty much a mirror image of the feature set that has been found in Toshiba’s low-end models with 1080i resolution, a 10/100 Ethernet port and a HDMI connector. The Ethernet port and HDMI connector are requirements of the HD DVD standard.

While no one can be sure, some are suggesting that the price on the SHD7000 could drop lower into the US$149 range in aggressive sales by Wal-Mart during the holiday season.
