Default Amazon Blues -> Need more titles, better hardware(wifi), customer service(firmware)

Bottom line

We love Blu-ray, but we need more titles, more value in these titles as well as the hardware itself, and the whole experience needs to be simple and easy. Is that really too much to ask? Perhaps. Blu-ray is sophisticated soft/hardware that exists in a world where technology grows so fast that it will continuously be updated. But look at Apple; the easiest, most intuitive products around, but still evolving. Firmware is never going away, but it's up to the engineers and retailers and movie studios to make it seem invisible.

Next up in our Blu-Con 2010 coverage, we'll hear to what James Cameron has to say about Blu-ray and 3D. Until then, dear readers, hit up the forum link below to tell us what you think would make Blu-ray discs, players, and the whole high-definition experience more enjoyable, user friendly, and would help you collect more films and television series.
Current perceived pitfalls of BD right now at amazon.

Pricing is another big factor. For every 10 percent that a Blu-ray disc is priced higher than its day-and-date DVD sibling, the Blu-ray's sales will drop by 4 percent. This means with a $10 premium price over the DVD, the Blu-ray will get 50 percent of the volume mix. With a $5 premium, the Blu-ray will take 75 percent of the mix. And with a 0 percent premium, the Blu-ray will take 95 percent.
