go with Sony, after all, they problaly have sold the most BR-player mechanism. I see they are at Fry's for about $130.
Oh, by-the-way, BR disc media can be had for about $10. Not that it matter.
I just want a good Blu ray player for my new HDTV GP1U 1080p 1920x1080, that can be connected to the PC internally.
I dont like a lot the Blu ray burner because each disc cost around $22.. its a lot of money for only just one.
So I saw this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827129015 , but i dont now anything about blu ray. I know that nmy video card its a BFG 8800 GT HDCP ready, and my procesor Intel E6850 3.0GHZ with Corsair XMS2 4GB 800MHZ :).
