I have an unusual situation involving my purchase of a Blu-Ray player. My collection is all standard DVD's, and I currently rent DVD's from Net-Flix. As such, I'm using a standard DVD player/recorder. Occasionally, friends will offer to loan me their rented Blu-Ray DVD's to watch, which I obviously can't do without a Blu-Ray player. I'd purchase one, but, I need a Blu-Ray with component (green/blue/red) outputs, as I am continuing to use a standard definition CRT television and have no plans to up upgrade to HD. All new Blu-Ray players output solely through HDMI and composite. I want to continue to watch my standard DVD's through the higher quality video afforded by the component inputs on my TV, and I really don't want to have two players - one Blu-Ray and one standard DVD - to watch movies.

From what I've been told, I need to purchase a used Blu-Ray player from around 2010 or earlier, in order to get the necessary component outputs. Does anyone have any recommendation on good makes/models I should keep an eye out for? Also, any suggestions where to find like-new older Blu-Ray players other than on Craig's List?

Google HDFury, you may not need to limit yourself to older players.

There are several dedicated threads for your situation.

Another option is to search the Help Me Choose thread with component.

Good luck.

I have been very satisfied with my Sony players:
BDP-S350 - has fully functional component video outputs
BDP-S550 - has fully functional component video outputs + multi channel analog audio outputs
BDP-S1000ES - probably the best player of these 3, has fully functional component video outputs + multi channel analog audio outputs
All 3 of these remain free of cinavia also, so far.
I see these on EBay advertised as in very good condition occasionally for attractive prices ($100 range & less).

A long-time audio/video addict!
