I think this idea is doomed to failure: instead of using standard 12cm DVDs, this new Player from CyberHome Entertainment only plays back 8cm 'mini DVDs.' While the price is right—just a skotch over $100—I don't see the least bit of reason to buy something that won't play full size discs when full size players can play mini DVDs just fine. On the other hand, I like the idea of entertainment companies selling individual episodes of shows on smaller discs for a lower cost. I like buying shows in per-season bundles, but I could see tossing out $4 here and there for some content on the road.
