I personally welcome the fact that Toshiba is joining the BD crowd, the more the better for the consumer.

One.

I'm sure Toshiba will make a bangin Blu-ray player.

Back off man, I'm a scientist.

I'm pleased to hear this news. I've got two Tosh HD-DVD players and love them. I won't be buying one of their Blu-ray machines any time soon though because I already have 3 Blu-ray players. I sincerely doubt that they'll be bringing out a combo player.

It appears the Toshiba Blu-ray player has made it to market sooner than some of us thought.

Toshiba's BDX2000 Blu-ray Player Hits Best Buy

At long last Toshiba has a Blu-ray player on store shelves, at $50 cheaper than announced.

Toshiba's BDX2000 isn't an especially unique Blu-ray player, but the circumstances around its creation and release certainly were. Toshiba of course was the driving force behind HD-DVD, and a long time Blu-ray holdout. After the end of the format war, Toshiba made a lot of statements that downplayed the importance of Blu-ray, but as time went on, the Blu-ray market became too strong to ignore.

With blu-ray shelf space for ever increasing at B&M and disc availability online pretty much everywhere, I'm not surprised that they want their peice of the player market.

And with sales like this title, who can blame them.

The Paramount Home Entertainment release hit stores Oct. 20 and within a week had become the top-selling home entertainment release of the year, with first-week sales of 7.5 million units, according to Home Media Magazine market research.

The sequel also became the biggest-selling Blu-ray Disc release of 2009, with first-week sales of 1.2 million units.

Transformers also takes the cake for day-one sales, having moved 2 million discs its first day in stores, 500,000 of them on the high-definition Blu-ray Disc format.

It's just to pair with their Regzas. The price and features just scream laziness.

To be fair, most BD players these days have similar featuresets and price points. That's why I still /hug my phat PS3, it's a unique snowflake in a world of identical plastic slim set-top players.

I do believe the P.C. term is "big-boned."

Hi folks,

Toshiba has been selling laptops with Blu-ray drives for quite some time (about 8 months that in the pc world, an eternity) in thier Tecra and Satellite Pro line.

Thier BR players are nothing fancy, I don't think they even have online access.

Do NOT let the magic smoke out because it is impossible to put the magic smoke back in!!!!
