Default Samsung's BD-P1400 Blu-ray player sinks below $300

I wonder what this is going to do for consumers now. Not sure how good this player is, but found this interesting.

Ouch, so they're trying to clear out an obsolete profile 1.0 Blu-ray player. This is not even worth $50.

That is what I thought. That is shady business, kind of like stores trying to sell Enhanced TVs as HD tvs.

Yeah but Blu-ray owners don't care about extras.

Maybe they should include a warning in the box before people realize the inevitable?

They would NEVER do that. If they did they should have been doing that from the very beginning, which I believe they SHOULD have.

I'm not surprised really, they've got to do something with these outdated players.

Ah, but people will buy this up because little did they know about the profiling of BD players and then they'll wonder why they can't play some of the new movies out there. Glad I have the power of the internet to know the truth of unfinished specs. REAL genius.

Yeah, maybe they should lower the price and give away 12 movies with it. Oh wait, Toshiba's doing that already with the obsolete A2. Never mind.

I own the A2 and nothing about it is obsolete. Unlike every standalone profile 1.0 BD player that will NEVER play PIP/IME and NEVER have web interactivity. Heck, even my HD-A1 does all that and it still does it all.

We shall see who has a lot of screaming owners next month when the first BD movies come out and they cannot see them.

.
I guess PIP/IME and web interactivity as really important to HD DVD owners. And I imagine the reason for that is because most of the movies on your side are pretty crappy so the fun with PIP/IME and connecting to the net are better than the movie.

Not sure why you guys get so moist over that stuff. I've only watched the extras on one disc in my entire life, and as far as interactivity with the web, I have an Apple for that.
