that is a great deal. i was thinking of taking advantage of this package at circuit city where it was $249.99 before tax, but was leaning away from it... this might just make me lean in the other direction.

how is this player compared to others on the market?

Early Samsung Blu-ray players were, but reviews for the 1500 have been fairly solid. It's no Sony S350 or PS3, but it does the job from what I can tell.

Not a huge difference, but it's currently showing up for $226.86 for me (typical Amazon price changes I suppose).

It's been going up and down in the $220s for two days. Also, there are times it has been unavailable. If you want it, get it while you can.

F@#%ing Circuit City. I literally placed the order for this from CC less than an hour before reading this, and when I tried to call CC to cancel the order, they told me I couldn't cancel it until the item is about to ship. Now I have to call CC back on Wednesday just to cancel the order through them (or wait until I receive shipment and return it to a CC store).

Sometimes there are Circuitcity.com 10% off coupons floating around online. You should do a search and see if you can find a code. This player has gotten good reviews from most websites. It's definitely worth $250.

I'm working on the wife, but she's just not caving. And I even have a $25 Amazon gift certificate.

Does anyone know how good the upconversion is on this unit? My wife told me to go ahead and get a $250 Sony unit they had at the Sony store a couple of weeks ago, but I decided to wait until Xmas. This deal with Matrix is enough to make me go though. The problem is my main standard DVD player is crapping out and I also wanted to buy a good upconverter (maybe the Toshiba, don't want to spend Oppo money).

If this is a good upconverter (and the sale is still on Friday, when I get paid) I'll go for it.

I guess I should have waited, but I got mine the next day (free shipping) so I guess I can't complain too much.

There is no way in hell I'm going to wait in any lines this year. I wish i knew if it would be offered online at that price anywhere.

Plus, the Matrix is a tempting addition.

Josh will you let me know what you think of this when you get it. If it's still on when I get paid on friday I might have to convince the girlfriend.

Had to jump on this. I already have two Blu-ray Disc players, but I could always just sell the player to a friend of mine, and keep The Matrix on BD

My thinking is that Amazon will need to compete, so I'm holding off until the holidays for a lower-priced player online. I don't want the Matrix box set.
