Re: Sony Ships New BDP-S300 Blu-ray Player
Boy Oh Boy, Gentlemen, some of you know my position, some of you do not. This whole Blu - Ray vs. HD DVD is just crazy. I have not moved either, and will not for a while. At a time when technology is at its height, custom home installations are booming like never before. Even Best Buy, Costco and the like type consumers are into Home Theater and HDTV. If there ever was a time, when the high end industry, retailer, specialty store could benefit with their knowledge and expertise to sway those customers, it is now.
But, instead, what do we have. A format war to consumers who just want to go home, hit the power button, and push play. Then, you want them to change their video libraries and choose once again. Sony vs. Matshu****a, Beta vs. VHS, 8mm vs. VHS type C. In my humble opinion, the best thing to do is, get a "universal dvd player". They will play just about any disc you can find. Have a great feature set, and as the Oppo 970 proved, are now available at quite reasonable prices.
Wait it out.
