Re: $269 Blu-Ray player from Memorex
These are all the same Funai player are they not?
It's branded "Sylvania," "Magnavox," and "Memorex," but it's the same player. This is the best price point of a cheap Chinese player: $258 (Magnavox at Sam's Club).
We will not be seeing sub $200 players by Christmas. The cost of a BD player is right around that. So we won't see one priced there yet. Maybe next summer.
Of course some of these Chinese units could be discounted to that price for the holiday shopping season. I'd be more inclined to believe in a $220 price point though.
