Thumbs down Re: Samsung Sued Over Blu-ray Players That Won't Play All Discs

My turn to weigh in: I am appalled.

I was admittedly excited and relieved to see the purported end to the format war. I had no stake in the game (other than investment of an HD-DVD-less Xbox 360), but instead chose to avoid investing in a technology that might disappear in a matter of months. I awaited the results of the unecessary format wars from the sidelines.

However, upon this weeks news annointing BR as the format winner, I decided to start shopping for a new player. Yet, now I stumble upon this news that players are unreliable! Looks like I shall remain firmly planted on the sidelines for the forseeable future until this 'grand new technology' sorts out the bugs.

I no way do I consider myself technology averse either. But if I convinced my wife to invest in a new BR disc player only to find out that it wasn't going to play every disc we put in it, she would laugh me out of the house with my re-boxed new player and return receipt in hand right back to the store from which it came...
