Default Re: Best STAND-ALONE Blu-ray player on the market

Buying a standalone BD player now is bad idea because:

A) They are very expensive
B) Even though they are expensive, they usually don't include decoders for lossless TrueHD & lossless DTS-HDMA which are on numerous Blu-Ray releases
C) None of them support the full BD-J & BD-Live interactivity spec yet, meaning you will be shut out from many of the features of future BD discs.

Wait about 6-8 months and you should start to see some more attractive BD standalones. Or, wait a few months and you will be able to pick up the Samsung BD-UP5000 dual format HD DVD/Blu-Ray player.
