There's a chance you may be able to get a super BD player for 299.99 if PS3 lowers their price and I know you don't want a game machine but if they did drop the price it would be pretty quickly that other SAP would catch up . Also with third tier brands shipping next quarter, that will drive prices down as well. I truly think again by Oct/Nov Samsung or Panasonic will have a player available at the $300.00 mark.
