    Looks like the MSRP is $299, so it's pretty cheap.

    JVC typically makes some very good CE products... If I was still in the market for a BD-Live player I'd have my eye on this one.
    Toshiba 55" 55HT1U LCD (1080p@24fps) w/Tivo HD, Harmony 880
    HDM Players: Toshiba HD-A30, Samsung BD-P2500 (wow! reon!)
    Onkyo TX-605SR, F Polk Monitor 50s bi-amped, C CS1, Yamaha sur & sub
    X-Box 360, Wii, DreamCast, DS
    HDM Count - Hopless

    Thinking about getting a stand alone player for the living room. As I use the ps3 in the game room. I will look into this.

    I would not be surprised to see it cheaper then that when released.

    They do? That's not been my experience. Their digital receivers were famous for overheating. The Vizio for $100 less looks like the better deal, at least Vizio's TV's have been reliable if not the best picture quality. Their blu-ray player should be reliable too.

    silly question,but is there a BD player that doesn't support AVCHD (home made) discs?

    Yeah, I could see it selling for around $229 on amazon brand new.

    i've had 2 JVC receivers and never had a single problem with them, their projectors and DLP TVs were widly accepted as being top notch. Even their value oriented LCD's provide a very good value for the dollar.

    If memory serves they've had players out in Japan for quiet sometime. This is just the first one they have released in the US.

    As for JVC products, they usually have good reviews. I agree their receivers are hot but considering they are the size of a dvd player that makes sense.

    In regards to this player and all the other new vendors in the Blu arena, I would sit back and let someone else do the testing and reevaluate my thoughts on how well these new players are working say six months from now. While I'm sure the players will be fine my concern is how long it will take these new vendors to get a firmware update out as soon as another disc comes along that is poorly authored or for some reason that is incompatible and refusing to play.

    I concur, my Zero 10 Reference Speakers are still going strong. I think I'll take a look at the player when it arrives. I've always had a soft spot for JVC.

    The JVC MP3/CD player head unit I had for 2 years (until I got a new car) served me well...it even had a USB port (that recognized flash drives at least as large at 16GB) with undocumented support for Ogg Vorbis.
