Blu-ray Disc Player Prices Coming Down

For nearly 2 years, Blu-ray disc players have hovered in the $350-500+ range.  With Blu-ray having emerged as the de-facto standard for high-definition disc playback, Sony and it’s licensees didn’t seem to be in any rush to start lowering prices and compressing margins.   As a result, adoption of standalone Blu-ray players has been relatively limited — with fewer than 4 million having been sold in the U.S. by the end of last year.


We’ve seen some budget Blu-ray players in the $300 range, but today we saw Amazon drop the price on the highly-rated Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu-ray player to under $250 after a special discount.  This player was rated by ConsumerSearch as the #1 choice for a standalone DVD player.  We’re looking forward  to similar discounts from other manufacturers and retailers.
