NEC's booth at CeBIT 2005 was big enough to show all NEC products
Apart from the projectors, laptops, and LCD-TVs, we were focused at the optical storage drives, NEC demonstrated working HD DVD drives with High Definition content!
You should expect NEC HD DVD-ROM drive around September of 2005 with a retail price of....$500! This drive can read CD, DVD and of course HD DVD media. At the end of 2005, users can expect a PC HD DVD-R burner, at similar price range of $500. Hopefully by middle of 2006, the PC drives will have much lower retail prices so more users can afford to buy them.
