Sony Blu-ray Player Price Below $30017 Dec, 2007 By: Chris Tribbey
Blu-ray Disc set-top players are selling for a lower price than the PlayStation 3 for the second time in as many weeks.
Following the sale of Samsung's BD-P1400 for under $300, Sony's BDP-S300 can now be found at Circuit City, Best Buy and Amazon.com for less than $300, a full $100 less than the PlayStation 3, which had been the cheapest Blu-ray player for the format.
The BDP-S300 delivers up to 1080p picture, handles Dolby Digital Plus and DTS sound, and is compatible with Sony's Bravia Theater Sync system, allowing for universal remote control. The player is not profile 1.1 compliant, meaning it will not play certain special features expected on some upcoming Blu-ray discs.
