Yes, I saw the 'cheaper' prices... but as also mentioned when Joe-Consumer see's a $29.99 DVD player at Walmart there is no way you could convince him (or his wife) to spend 10-20 times that much for a BD player.
No way, uh-uh!
come on those are hi end players,denon,marantz!they have always been hi end.
always cost an arm&a leg you omitted lower end players like sony,sharp etc. to make your point.29.99!,yeh in a year the player will be ready for the trash,you get what you pay for.
