Default Help, cheapest Blu Ray Player?

Hey,

Im considering buying a Blu Ray player. Was wondering what is the cheapest/ best deal out there? Thanks! Oh, and I'm not interested in the PS3.

Unfortunately, the 40GB PS3 is the cheapest blu-ray player. I certainly feel for you though, since if I could find a cheaper standalone Blu-ray player that will be certified to be Profile 2.0 compatible, I would sell my 40GB PS3 in a heartbeat.

you can find plenty of discontinued 1.0 models for decent prices.
like the Samsung 1200 or the discontinued Sony ones.
I'm not saying you want these players, but I'd probably look for the 1200 myself. It has the Reon chip for great upscaling of "regular" dvds and will play most bd titles. It's a crap shoot honestly.
Do you feel lucky!

I would agree. If you can find the Panny 10a at a good price don't hesitate. Great user experience and excellent customer support. Oh, and did I mention great picture quality.
