You'd be a fool to get anything but a PS3 if you want a Blu Ray Player.

I would just run away like crazy from any Samsung player right now.
My Sammy 1200 is working fine since the last firmware update !

I would think a seller would be forced to drop that low, for reasons mentioned in my initial post. If they don't drop that low, I'd just get the $299 PS3.
But Sony doesn't want standalones to be a good value. This is the reverse trojan horse, now that Blu-Ray has won. People now ready to buy a BD player will go for the PS3 because the standalones are the same price. This greatly increases their installed base vs. MSFT and Nintendo. And just as the PS3 helped Sony win the format war, BD returns the favor and helps Sony win the console war.
This is why MSFT should have cared a bit more than they did about HD DVD.
