240w ago - Reports indicate that the Samsung BP-1500 Blu-ray player, which usually sells for $400, will go on sale on Black Friday for just $149.
To quote: You might want to hold off on buying a Blu-ray player for a few weeks, because thankfully, finally, seriously, and almost too-latedly, Blu-ray players will soon drop into truly affordable territory.
A source close to Ultimate Electronics has told us to expect the Samsung BD-P1500 -- usually about $400 -- for $149 on this particularly welcome and poignant Black Friday.
Ultimate Electronics is a primarily Midwestern chain, but look to be offering this deal in cooperation with Samsung -- in other words, it's probably not the only place you'll see stupidly cheap Blu-ray players come November 28th.
