But it's one of the best on the market in terms of capability and upgradeability

apperantly he is unaware of what a 'reference' player refers to in the world of home theatre...or at least what the significance is...

glance through a HT mag some time...anytime you see a component being used as a reference device by a credible studio, whether its a TV, speakers, a reciever, or player of some sort...correlate that with the price and abilities of said devices...chances are they are the best on the market...

So the cheap chinese plants can't pop them out like crazy that's why you don't see low price blu-ray players at Wal Mart. Well, the blu-ray consortium is doing deals and we should start to see some soon (I heard Xmas 2008).

I have a Samsung BDP-1400 and it is the suxx0rs. The PS3 is way better.
THen again, I liked HD-DVD fromat the most on my 360, so what the hell do I know.
