Get a refurbished Blu-ray player for $79.99

The Magnavox RNB500MG9 may be a no-frills model, but it's still a Blu-ray player for 80 bucks shipped. To quote Comic-Book Guy: Best. Deal. Ever!

For the first time ever, you can score a Blu-ray player for just $80. Magnavox

It wasn't that long ago that we finally saw Blu-ray players dip below the magic $100 mark. Now, Newegg is offering a refurbished Magnavox NB500MG9 Blu-ray player for $79.99 shipped.

That's a new low, big time, so this will absolutely, positively sell out quickly. If you're interested, chop-chop. (Make that click-click.)

The RNB500MG9 features 1080p output and upconversion and Blu-ray Profile 1.1. However, that's about it in the specs department. If you insist on BD-Live and other frilly features, keep walking.

Though I've covered this model before, I still haven't found any substantial reviews. If you already own an RNB500MG9, hit the comments and let us know what you think of it!

Newegg doesn't specify the warranty (whats up, 'Egg?), but I'm fairly confident it's a refurb-standard 90-day guarantee. (I'm checking with the vendor and will post an update in the comments when I find out.)

If you do miss out on Newegg's deal, Sears has the same model for $99.99 shipped (plus sales tax).
