Sony BDP-S300 MSRP $499.
Panasonic DMP-BD10A MSRP $599 w/ five bluray movies.
These are going to be released in the next 2 weeks so the street price will be a little less.
So what is 'cheap' to you?
I just looked at the Oppo players & their $150 (upscale to 1080i) or $229 (upscale to 1080p). Everyone that has a Oppo loves them, I have never seen one so I can't say.
I have a 1080p sharp lcd. I was thinking PS3 for the bluray player. However $600 is expensive and I am not much of a gamer. In addition I do not buy too many dvds. I rent dvds them from time to time. What is everyones opinion on the cheaper upscale dvd players to 1080p?
