So, which is the best Blu-Ray player to buy at Wal-Mart? I know better capabilities will be coming in the next year or so, but which ones do the best job of upconverting, and which will be able to take advantage of the capabilities in Disney's forthcoming Internet-interactive Blu-Ray of Sleeping Beauty? I'm ready to pop $200 ($298 - $100) on a Blu-Ray player, but if it's best to wait 6 months to get much more for the money, I can wait. Does one also get a coupon for some free Blu-Ray discs?
What profile, etc. (1.1, 2.0?), should one look for? (My TV is DVI, not HDMI, but I have a converter cord).
We may get a new/bigger TV this fall/January, esp. with the new built-in cable box standards that arrive this fall or so, plus HDMI/3D-capable viewing and better contrast than our 5-year-old Sony GW II, so I don't want to spring on a Blu-Ray player that I'll want to replace in 6 months. Maybe a new Mits Laser, if the picture and price are acceptable.
