portable blu-ray player

Being somewhat old school (refuse to carry laptop through airports, don't ask) I am looking for recommendations for a portable blu-ray player. Any thought?

This is pretty much the only one worth your time -

Amazon Amazon

I've had it for years and it's been absolutely great. Provided the screen isn't at the maximum brightness and volume isn't jacked all the way up I regularly get at least 5 hours on a single charge.

Wow. $300 for that one. Doesn't seem like any of the big companies make a portable blue ray player anymore, if they did at all.

OP, I loved your work with the Partridge Family, by the way.

But... why? Or... get a tablet, and take advantage of digital copies that come with physical releases. That's what i've been doing for flights and travelling

Re: portable blu-ray player

I have a blu ray drive in my 17 inch laptop. I bought it brand new during BF about 6 or 7 years ago for around $500. Might be worth trying to find a used one on the cheap side. That way you would have a laptop and could watch blu rays.
