2007 winner: The first combination HD DVD-Blu-ray player, the LG BH100, took the grand prize at the height of the war between the two video playback formats. Unfortunately for those who bought this one at $1,200 -- HD DVD was soon declared the loser so a combo player lost its usefulness except for those who liked to watch old movies.
2006 winner: The Creative Vision Zen:M music player was slated to be an iPod killer with a brighter screen, better battery life, a voice recorder and an FM tuner, the $330, and 30GB storage. And look at those colors.
2005 winner: Samsung's 67-inch DLP HDTV won because it was the biggest DLP set at the show. It could handle 1080p and was considered to be thin and light, and twice as sharp as previous models. And it was relatively inexpensive.
