I'm finally building my home theater, linked in my signature....I thought I was being driven insane by the many decisions projector, receiver, risers, screen, size, etc....
Somehow I was VERY naive about blu ray players at least at first review of the stickies here, they seem to be from 2007 or earlier. Certainly things have changed a lot since those stickies were put up....personally I put this decision off while the HD-DVD/Blu-Ray battle raged and now I need to make a purchase.
I'll probably have a Panasonic AE4000 projector on a 130" acoustically transparent screen.
Today I read I may be able to score a Blu-Ray player for $50
