Sony’s BDP-S300 can now be found at Circuit City, Best Buy and Amazon.com for less than $300, which is a $100 cheaper than the PlayStation 3, which until now has been the cheapest Blu-ray
player out there.
The BDP-S300 handles up to 1080p
picture, handles Dolby Digital Plus and DTS sound, and is compatible with Sony’s Bravia Theater Sync system, allowing for universal remote control.
Now here comes the kicker, the player is not profile 1.1 compliant, meaning it will not play certain special features expected on some upcoming Blu-ray discs.
