The $400. price point for a full-featured next gen Blu-ray player is increasingly crowded with competition from the major manufacturers. Sony is rumored to be bringing out a PS3 80 GB model at that price point and its next gen standalone deck player, the Sony BDP-S350, is now available also at that price point.
These big companies have the advantage of mass production and can buy internals - chips, drives, etc. - at quantity prices.
More competitive pressure on OPPO Digital. I'm glad I'm not involved in its decision-making.
