Wal-mart: Magnavox Blu-ray Player, NB500MG1F $78

Saw this in store today, looks like it's available online too:

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...ct_id=11319406

I'm guessing these are what's left over from Black Friday so YMMV.

It's been around for a week or so. They have stacks and stacks of them at the Walmarts around here.

Huge YMMV, they are being seen all over from $58 to $128, sadly the only one near me is $128.

Question is, are they worth it or are those bottom end players for the most part?

These are bottom end. They're not even 2.0.

2.0 = BD-Live features.

I don't utilize BD-live too often but it's nice to know I have it if I need it.

I personally wouldn't buy this player. It's bottom-end.

I wouldn't use it mainly cause I don't have a credit card. But with it being bottom end regardless of BD-Live, ill still skip it. Glad I didn't buy it at that price for black friday.

Re: Wal-mart: Magnavox Blu-ray Player, NB500MG1F $78

Considering the shitloads of Blu-ray players I've seen piled up in Wal-Mart and Best Buy, it wouldn't surprise me if there are some very good deals to be had on them in the near future.

My regular Wal-Mart has a pallet of the Magnavox players on the floor in the middle of the electronics section at $128.

And both Best Buys I've been in have walls of the Sony BDP-360s stacked up around the store. I'd guess there are between 100 and 150 players at each BB store.
