Blu-ray Players are for Everyone….

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

The September 2009 issue of Sound and Vision Magazine compared three Blu-ray players, all under $300. The great thing about them, they come with quite a few features that most people wouldn’t expect from a less-expensive Blu-ray player.

Blu-ray Live has expanded over the past few months bringing users more streaming and gaming opportunities. According to Sound and Vision, Blu-ray players have become media-streaming dynamos. Now they stream Netflix, CinemaNow, YouTube, and Pandora. Blu-ray, according to the magazine has really become an entertainment hub.

The three Blu-rays that were featured—the LG BD370, Panasonic DMP-BD60, and Samsung BD-P1600—all boast the features that any Blu-ray owner would look for at any price point.

Each player had advantages. Tim Steward, in the internet sales department, believes that a lot of people look for the quickest load time in a Blu-ray machine. That’s why he prefers the LG model.

Blu-rays are the first step into the future, according to Tim, they play the highest resolution movies and are moving away from actual discs altogether. He pointed out that by doing a direct download from Netflix we will one day not need discs at all.
