If you are like me, and are either a college student, or just don’t have a ton of cash, you may also be like me and be without a Blu-ray player and an HD TV. Well, this may be changing very soon.
According to Home Media Magazine, online consumer electronics retailers are getting ready for the summer by kicking off a few pre summer sales in hopes of cleaning a bit of space.
Currently, Sears.com is selling a refurbished Blu-ray player, the Magnavox NB500, for a cheap and totally awesome price of $49.99. This is the same player that Walmart is currently selling for a pricey $78.
Other affordable Blu-ray players are currently selling at Woot.com for $59.99, Sears (the Element Electronics EDBCO11 BD) for $55.77, and Best Buy where four separate Blu-ray players are currently priced at anywhere from $74.99 to $89.99.
Personally, I just got the Studio Canal Blu-ray of Akira Kurosawa’s Ran in the mail the other day, and while I do not have a Blu-ray player, I am seriously contemplating picking one up. These are amazing prices, and perfectly suitable for what I would plan on doing with one. Now, if HD TVs could fall a little bit, this would be an absolute gold mine for any cinephile.
