Nonsense! No third party manufacturer would afford those parts, assembly and marketing costs. It would be financial suicide if they were wrong; they simply aren't big enough. And with Memorex about to offer BD players (2009) in drug stores like Walgreen's, Rite Aid, Eckart, and CVS - the lid will be off the coffin in no time!
