Default LOST season 3 to hit Blu-Ray 12/11

http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/news...s_December/668

Sigh. I sure hope that Samsung dual-format player comes out before then, rocks, and isn't too expensive...

Out of interest are you still Anti Blu-Ray?Are the quality of films coming out on blu-ray forcing you to get a player?

I'm anti-Sony. But there are too many releases (Rescue Me season 3, LOST season 3, LotR:EE [if the rumors are to be believed]) that I can't hold back anymore.

But I'll be damned if I'm going to buy one of the existing gimped POS BD players on the market now. I'm going to wait until BD-J is "finalized" in October so I'll at least know for the next few months, new releases will work on whatever combo player I buy until BD-J is finalized again.

Why not just get a PS3? It is the cheapest blu-ray player, and with firmware upgrades you don't have to worry about anything.

It's a joke that the PS3 is the cheapest BD player when $200 Toshiba HD-A2's outperform Sony's flagship BDP-S1.

Correct me if I'm wrong...


But I believe Superklye's TV supports 720p and not 1080p. As far as I know, PS3 does not support 720p when watching Blu-Ray. It only supports 480i/p and 1080i/p. 1080i is a significant downgrade from 720p imo and I would not like to use that as my player.

If it wasn't for this issue with the PS3, I would have already bought one.

Where can you find an HD-A2 for $200?

That 720p issue was fixed with the last FW update.
