3D Blu-Ray Players
What good is a 3D TV if you can’t rent your favorite movies in 3D? Enter Blu-Ray Players, which are amazingly cheap to purchase, with basic models running from about $125 (on sale, often for Christmas) to $300. This is a significant price drop – of about 26% since April of this year.
Some of the more popular models include:
Panasonic’s basic model of 3D Blu-Ray Player is the DMP-BT100. It currently retails for about $225 and offers full HD 3D, true to cinema sound and picture, and is also wifi ready. Panasonic also offers two more models with a few extra features and better parts: the DMP-BT 300 and the DMP-BT350.
Samsung’s basic model of 3D Blu-Ray Player is the BD-C5900. It currently retails for about $229 and offers crystal clear sound, true 3D in high definition, 2 channel audio output, 1 HDMI output, and theater quality picture. Samsung also offers two more sophisticated models: the BD-C6900, which retails for $349, and the BD-C7900, which retails for $399.
LG offers a 3D Blu-Ray Player knowns as the BX580, which currently retails for $349 and offers wifi connectivity and surround sound up to 7.1 channels.
If price is an issue for you, my recommendation is to wait until just before Christmas – or possibly even until just after Christmas – to purchase a 3D Blu-Ray Player. Prices have been declining quickly in the last few months, and this trend seems to be accelerating.
