That's a great deal, but Black Friday is just around the corner.

Because I posted about this player just a couple weeks ago, I won't repeat the details here. However, you should read CNET's recently updated review, which mentions the firmware update that corrects a couple of the BDP-S300's trouble spots. (Hey, wonder if they learned about that from my post? The timing's about right.)
Anyway, I was happy to see so many comments about this player, Blu-ray technology in general, and the price point you need to see before pulling the trigger. Feel free to keep the conversation going! Personally, I think player manufacturers need to stop overcharging for these units and drop them to $99. Otherwise, Blu-ray may not live to see the inevitable transition to Internet distribution of movies.
