The price of Blu-ray Disc players continues to fall in the UK, with a number of models from leading consumer electronics manufacturers and BDA members now available on the market at around the ¬£100 mark.
For example, the Phillips BDP3000 is currently available from Amazon for less than ¬£100, while The Sun’s gadget columnist Jonathan Weinberg has written an article on the low price of the Sony BDP-S360, which is retailing for around ¬£110. Both players are fully featured, with support for DVD upscaling, 7.1 sound and BD-Live content.
Considering price of players has previously been cited as one reason why some have yet to upgrade to BD, the arrival of these players on the market will surely tempt more consumers to make the jump from DVD. As Weinberg points out, at these prices, BD players are an absolute steal.
