Sylvania Blu-ray Player NB530SLX - $42.49 - K-Mart B&M YMMV

My K-Mart had these previously on clearance for about $75 but now have lowered them to $42.49. Reviews on Amazon don't sound to bad, probably a good choice if you need a second player for a bed room or something. Looks like the firmware has to be burned to a CD to update.

This is a great player. No BD-Live, but it can do everything else. I bought mine in mid-2009, have never updated the firmware once, and have been able to play literally every Blu-ray I've put in, without a single problem. Even "Avatar," which a lot of people couldn't even play WITH a firmware update, played on this baby. Highly recommended.

There have also been some sightings of the Sony BDP-S360 on clearance for just $60 at K-Mart. Alas, none of my local stores had any left in stock.

I convinced one of my friends, who claimed he'd never go Blu, to get the Sylvania today since it was so friggin cheap. Last one they had...

I'm waiting til it's super-cheap to make the switch. Alas, all the K-Marts in these parts have closed up shop.

My dad picked me up a Sony one today. I assume it was the BDP-S360 because it was $60 + tax. I just wanted an extra for the bedroom so I hope this is a good one. I read the reviews at AMAZON and 201 people gave it 3-5 stars versus 36 that gave it 1 or 2 stars. I just figured this one was better than a Sylvania which they didn't have at my store.

$5 off $50 coupon:

I believe this coupon link is always active, you just need to change the starting date in the link. Next week's is active already:

I picked up the only Sylvania one at the K-Mart here in Muskegon. $42.49 + tax out the door!

Interestingly, the player was sitting on top of a Toshiba HD-A3 player that scanned at $149.99 on the price scanner!

Thanks OP! Snagged a Sony BDP-630 for $58.71 out the door w/ the coupon. Now I can retire the Samsung BD-P1000 in the bedroom. Man, is that thing slow!

I ventured out to my KMart today but they were selling the Sylvania for 170 bucks. No other blu ray players.

Just curious, did you take the box up to the register and have them scan it?

I did not. I ended up getting one for $97 from walmart.com.

Too bad. It probably would have scanned at $42.49. You should go back to K-Mart and check. You can return a Wal*Mart online order to a B&M store for a refund to save on the return shipping charge. You might end up pocketing $55.

I couldn't find the Sylvania player, but I did find the Sony player, but when I scanned it, it rang up 179.99

You sure that wasn't the new 370 model, that's exactly what that costs.

Quite possibly. But that was the only one I saw, so if that's the case, they didn't have either of the clearanced players in stock.

My semi-local K-Mart only had the BDP-370. No Sylvania either.
