$100? Heh no. Give it few months at most, maybe but more likely when it's closer to holiday. I kinda doubt it'll drop as low as $100 though.

I miss HD-DVD's prices when they still had a chance.

you might see $199 blu-ray player in the holiday season. it's been mentioned somewhere...(trying to find it) but you might want to hold off sony players since they tend to keep price high.

keep checking. don't drop your hopes like few people here.

Think of all the beer I can buy with $400!! Choices: slightly better looking movies, or enough beer that I can't tell the difference.

the best way as mentioned would be a htpc, but if by all of the features you mean dts-hd, don't expect anything out of a htpc other than DD. they just recently found cheaper means of making the blue read lasers, i know that chinese companies are attempting to pick them up, so you may see 1.0 possibly 1.1 profile players for ~100 by the end of the summer. you won't see any brand name 1.1 players drop even close to that low for a while, unfortunately the expensive process beat the cheaper format, and now the consumer is forced to deal with the prices as attempts are made to cheapen the process to make these players (not even mentioning the price of the media).
