Ok I was serious thinking about buying a blueray player for christmas , but deceided not to buy after reading the reviews here and else where it seems wether you spend 1500.00 or 150.00 on your blue ray player it seems every other new BlueRay title released you need to go though a rather bothersome firmware upgrade to make your new movie play if at all?. Is the blueray format so half baked that you can not count simple viewing experance, ie every new disk is a adventure? I'm not tech phobic over the years Ive built 10 different pc's myself, installed wireless networks , hell I even hack my HD tivo with a 1tb harddrive (133 hrs of hd recording) . Is blueray the second coming of laser disk? At this point with blueray players of any price point it seems to be a total unrealible and transitory format. If you buy one is it better to get one with rj45 network jack to make the firmware updates easier? Is there any brand of blue ray player (trying to stay under 250.00 usd) that works with all disks for basic viewing? Honestly I'm confused I'd really like to get a blueray to use the full potential of my hdtv but right now Blueray seems more of a bother than its worth.Does anyone have recommendation a blueray player that provides a user friend experance or at the current stage of blueray delevopement no such player exisits?Im not trying to flame here , I really would like to upgrade to blueray, Im tring to get some input and ideas , because I cant afford to buy the next tech dead end like laser disk.
