Re: Philips Set to Ship 4K UHD Blu-ray Player in June

If Oppo stays true to form, they will have a $500 version as well as more expensive models (like Darbee, etc). I can't imagine they will change their business model that has been working so well all this time.

And I don't blame Sony for waiting another year. They have been a bit more conservative ever since the Betamax failure. I wouldn't put it past Sony to be working on a better format behind the scenes either...knowing it would crush 4K & using the time for R&D. You never know!

But, back to the thread...
I just can't get my head around that little box. I like the "equipment rack look." And that thing just isn't as purty as a full size player sitting in one! I can't imagine buying one for that reason. Oppo will be the way I go.

Samsung says it can't make enough of its player (granted it's probably a small production line).
All of the data point to a shrinking market...but I can't imagine physical media collapsing. Hopefully Samsung will pave the way to a healthy Blu-ray future.

It almost looks like an Apple Airport station. I can see where you're coming from...but you have to keep in mind, the streaming generation is staring at incredibly small add-ons to get their fix. Perhaps the folks at Philips decided the small form factor would play into that market?

Well if the Oppo comes in at $500 that would be great!. Obviously their bluray players have been far more expensive than the Panasonics and Samsungs. I would have expected a price bump personally but I hope $500 is where it lands.

I'd guess their lowest 4K model player will exceed $500. In fact if we were betting on it I'd go all in.

Nice, thanks Todd. I've got a feeling I might be sneaking this one past the finance committee.

A craft that we're all very adept at ;-)

Oppo is fairly tight lipped... And understandably so...But Perhaps they'll have some info they'd like to share.

Good to know that Sony is not in the UHD 4K players market. They are the ones who come up with high pricing and see that market stays high and firm. Sony always keep the pricing high.
