Just curious if anyone has tried the Magnavox NB500MG9 BluRay player for $278? Seems to have pretty good reviews.

hmmm... off to read some quick reviews.

I want to buy a bluray player soon, perhaps this week.

I have enough best western reward points to get almost $200 worth of gift certs from best buy or walmart too.

Read through a thread over at AVS and I am pretty sure I will get this player.

Downside is no ethernet/profile 2.0... I really don't see myself using that feature anyway. I would like an ethernet for potential firmware upgrades though.

It bitstreams all of the HD audio formats for my denon3808 to decode via hdmi, so that is great. If you don't have an hdmi receiver that decodes these formats then your out of luck, because the player won't do it.

I just have to decide between this and the PS3... I don't need all the streaming/networking features of the PS3 because my xbox 360, xbox media center, and denon 3808 handle that just fine. I am not sure if there are enough good games on the PS3 that justify the extra cash.

There is very little on PS3 that's not on xbox 360, although I'm very happy with the PS3 I still get a little irked every time I use it because of the blutooth.

I don't really care about universal remotes at this point, and I bought the PS3 remote, so I'm good. Also, I hate to admit it, but it seems like there's going to be enough exclusive software on the PS3 that I'll actually start buying some more.

As much as people complain about the denon 3808 remote I really like it... and want to program it to control the bluray player. I see no need to drop a couple of hundred doullars on another universal remote.

I have it set to turn on the tv, the receiver, the cabel box, and then open the cable guide all with the press of a button.

Also, how much did the ps3 remote set you back?

which titles are upcomming ps3 exclusives? go on, try and convince me to get a ps3

I am still waiting for a sub $200 Blu-Ray player with analog audio outs... That will probably never happen, so by the time I feel the need to spend several hundred dollars on a new receiver to decode HD audio via HDMI, disc based movies will be gone and everyone will be downloading movies from online sources (legally)...

The PS3 remote is around $20.00, the main elusive games that I know of would be Final Fantasy XIII, Resident Evil 5, and Gran Turismo, I'm sure there are others but Sony has been very slow at getting new titles for the console.

final fantasy XIII is comming to xbox360 now. (simultaneous release in N America w/ PS3)

Gran turismo would be great, but Forza motorsport on xbox 360 kinda makes up for it.
