Toshiba’s ass-kicking RD-A1 HD DVD recorder with a 1TB hard drive went on sale this morning, after a delay of a few weeks natch, for the wallet-kicking sum of ¥398,000, or about US$3,400.

For a pretty clear idea of what prices like that to to the public’s lust for cutting-edge technology, check out Impress Watch’s gallery of launch day after the jump.
