LG BH100 in stock at BestBuy.com
LG's hybrid Blu-ray/HD DVD player shows up online

Although it was previously thought that LG would have trouble selling its hybrid BH100 Blu-ray/HD DVD player to the public, at least with the HD DVD logo onboard, it appears all is well in hybrid-land again. BestBuy.com is showing the LG BH100 in stock with purchases shipping from its warehouse within one business day.

The initial ruckus kicked up over the BH100 was over its inability to playback iHD interactive content on HD DVD discs. According to Crave, the only concession handed down to LG from the DVD Forum was that the official HD DVD logo could not appear anywhere on the product.

However, the lack of iHD is the least of the BH100's problems. The $1,199 price tag is sure to give many consumers an upset stomach. Consumers could grab a $499 20GB PlayStation 3 and a $599 Toshiba HD-A20 for 1080p Blu-ray and HD DVD movie viewing. For those that can get by with 1080i HD DVD playback, the $399 Toshiba HD-A1 could also serve as a cheaper alternative.
