"A closer look at price trends of other Blu-ray players (without BonusView and BD-Live features), reveals that the BD-P1400 is not a fluke."
I might pick up one of the 1.0 players pretty soon, be a great player for the bedroom. And maybe get one for my Mom, that way I can play my Blu-Rays over there during the Holidays. Dont need any fancy features in the bedroom, and my Mom would never use any of it
I almost never use any of the extra features, so my profile 1.0 player is just fine for me. I just hope that in the future all BD movies will be backward compatible with profile 1.0 players.
You might want to consider the PS3's very soft PQ before you make your final decission.As a person with a family of five, I really can't get myself to buy a Blu-ray player for 300 to 500 bucks. So the lowering of prices isn't getting me to jump yet. When I do jump, it is going to be for a PS3 since you get a gaming machine and player in one. But even when you get a player the prices are still too high to actually buy a movie. Yes the prices have shown a downward trend and they need to if they want to capture the mass market appeal. Times are very bad right now for the middle class with gas so high and the economy going down the tubes. Blu-ray prices will go down further.
