While the majority of the Blu-ray players priced at $99 or less were older profile 1.1 less full-featured models, those in the know tell us that this trend will not last for long: expect to see the lower-end profile 2.0 players continue to hover at the $99 mark long after the holidays.

no need for bluray players.. HD media players like WD and Asus O!Play can any format thrown at them like mkv, divx7 etc. You have usb ports, Esata ports HDMI1.3 connectivity, lan ports etc. so you can stream directly from your pc. And Asus O!play only costs 99$.

where does one get all this HD media from? Netflix and that type of distribution is only available in the USA. I think a Bluray player is still very much relevant.
