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

Oh, and Spago is 2 block from my office but even that is a tough $300 bill. A lobster cobb salad and an ice tea won't set you back a Blu-ray player.

I am not sure which one I like better - the player or the salad. I guess it depends if Wolfie is in the kitchen (which unlike most celeb chefs - he is!!!)

I agree. Also, your dollar goes much further here in TX than CA.

Most Americans don't live in Beverly Hills either.

I don't see how anyone could get say a $300 bill at Chilis without buying a lot of alcohol.

For $300 most "wives," will want that unit returned if they but it, and it immediately doesn't play a movie.

Well, I still own my BDP-1200 and since it's last firmware update when Pirates came out, it has played everything perfectly. I think the firmware update thing has really settled down a lot and any player should be functional with the current firmware.

FWIW We have heard of players being screwy and dying from the HD DVD camp as well.

All my Blu-ray players work all the time, so I am losing belief in the argument of unreliability.

OMG Jerry, I can't believe you said this?

You expect people to be 'early adopters' after what just happened with HD-DVD? Why should I support (by early purchase) a emerging standard, I hope those consumers coming from HD-DVD only 'BUY-IN' to Bluray when the thing works as advertised! It is not about the $300, it is about Sony and their partners bringing Bluray to market before it was ready.

If something is poorly designed or implimented adopting it early is not going to save it, all you get is a device that doesn't work as advertised and in this case a resulting law suit!

Please don't suggest that we run out and buy these so Sony can keep things going...

Jerry,

I'm afraid you missed my point. Regardless of whether I had paid $30, $300, or $3,000 for a new BR player, my wife would have me lugging the thing back to the store to exchange it for a player that works.

And for the time being, that player seems to be a SD DVD player...
