Pioneer Blu Ray Player for $145 - Good Deal?

Postby BFDopey » Wed Oct 21, 2009 9:24 am

I was thinking of biting the bullet and getting a Blu-Ray player for Christmas this year. I haven't done my research on them yet (been busy), and don't know if this deal I just heard about is a good one. Could someone please advise???

Buy.com has a Pioneer Blu-Ray Player w/1GB USB and HDMI (BDP-121) on sale now for $145 and free shipping. I'm not sure how long it will last. Should I jump on this deal, or wait for something better?

Thanks for your help!! :?:

PS3

I would get a PS3. I know it costs more, but has many more features. Not only can you play movies, but it has a hard drive for storage of video and pictures. You can also use it to play games and browse the internet.

If you are determined to get bluray only at the absolute lowest price, I would wait until you see some ads. Somebody will have a better deal than that.

THats not a bad deal. I believe that player is BD-live ready, it does not have internal storage. I saw a similar player at Wal Mart the other day for a similar price. This isnt a bad deal by any means, but not an exceptional deal. Its much cheaper than in years past but its not the best deal on a Blue Ray that we will see this year I believe.

That is an okay deal... If you wait and try hard enough you can find something with more features and quality for about the same price.

OK - It sounds like I can wait and not worry about this deal. Thanks so much!
