Being a Funai it should be under $59.00. Very poor quality equipment.

Boy did I know you were gonna have a comment.

First everyone said "another 1.0, ughhh". Now all its gonna be is "another profile 1.1, ughhh". If I understand it, 2.0 is not a standard, 1.1 is. Rightfully so. If they can make a player cheaper without the ram and internet connection they should. Im sure some will have 2.0 but they'll cost more. Some of you guys bitch regardless, which is why its so fun to read your posts. You missed the larger point, everyone here is bitching about price since HDDVD is dying. Well, here is what appears to be a great player for a great price.

Profile 1.0:

64 KB of built in persistent memory required
no additional persistent memory capability required
no outlining support for text based subtitles required
no SD PiP decoding required
no secondary audio decoding required
no internet capability required

Bonus View:

64 KB of built in persistent memory required
256 MB of persistent memory capability required
outlining support for text based subtitles required
SD PiP decoding required
secondary audio decoding required
no internet capability required

BD-Live:

64 KB of built in persistent memory required
1 GB of persistent memory capability required
outlining support for text based subtitles required
SD PiP decoding required
secondary audio decoding required
internet capability required


If 2.0(internet connection) is that important to you, good for you. You are in the minority. :river

I like the fact that they left internet and extra ram as optional. Allows for cheaper 1.1 player and more costly 2.0 players.

Someone stated that Funai is big at walmart? Is this a potential plus for getting more exposure at walmart?
