Default Daewoo / Daytek Blu-ray Player $199 to $299

Daewoo / Daytek Blu-ray Player

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=841

"After much searching, I finally located Daewoo at CES today. Their BD Live Blu-ray player is still in the prototype stage and the company is in planning and research mode for an eventual Canadian release under the Daytek brand name. Daewoo hopes to enter the market in the $199 to $299 (Canadian dollars) price point sometime this year. There is still the possibility that the player could come to the US market, but the rapidly falling prices on BD players from major CE companies might price Daewoo out of the BD race in the states."

A player from a failed car manufacturer, I'd buy one for $49, not a penny more.

Didn't even bother to do 5 seconds of research, huh?

They're not the same company. Daewoo Motors is owned by GM.

I bought a region-free Daewoo DVD player for my parents 4 or 5 years ago and it works just fine.

I wonder if their fridges are any good (Future Shop has them cheap).

I dont know why the article thinks prices in the US will compete with a $199 2.0 player (unless it wont come out til 2009)

As it stands I cant imagine any 2.0 players reaching $199 this year (old 1.1 models clearanced out at $199 i can see though)

A lot of people believed Blu-ray players wouldn't go for less than $500 in 2007, too. We already have one sub-$300 MSRP (which means $50 off or more at retail) player coming out in Q208, with the added advantage that it's made by Wal-mart's and Target's biggest supplier of players.

HD DVD players selling for $100-$200 were outsold by Blu-ray players going for 2x-4x that price during the holidays, and that was without Warner/New Line/HBO dropping HD DVD. I can only imagine what it will be like in June with $250-$300 Blu-ray players hitting Wal-mart (and others) and no new Warner titles. Conveniently enough, June is the timeframe for the theatrical release of "The Dark Knight" and an all-but-official Blu-ray release of "Batman Begins"
