If you mean you wish they'd include a BD player, I'd say no. At this point, as players are still being perfected, I'd rather keep it separate so I can replace it on its own. What happens when another problem disc is released? Will it have firmware that can be updated?

The projector itself is not adequate for today's (HD) standards, with limited resolution and no HDMI or DVI input. Plus, I don't think I'd even be able to use it since it would be difficult to ceiling mount. You'd have R2-D2 hanging upside down, and I'm not sure the disc mechanism would work well in that orientation. I'd only want it if I had a high enough shelf in the back of the room to set on.

It is nice looking, and I could see the appeal as a collector's item/toy for the wealthy to pull out once in a while, but as a serious projector it's really lacking if you want HD.

I got one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Acti...0031671&sr=8-2

The R2D2 projector would be very cool, but I'm assuming it's pretty expensive.
