Ok, so the price drop may seem minimal, but it looks like this is gonna make Samsung's BDP-1000 the most "affordable" standalone Blu-ray player on the market. You see as a result of the $100 price drop, stores like Best Buy and Circuit City are gonna follow suit, which means online retailers like Amazon will be selling the BDP-1000 for even cheaper (try $569). True, you're better off with a PS3, but if you must have a Blu-ray player, it's nice to see at least one manufacturer lowering their price. Hopefully they won't be the last.
