I think I’m going to finally buy a Blu-Ray player - blame Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli’s unwillingness to stream, although I also hope the upscaling that Blu-Ray players do can make my older DVDs a bit more watchable.
So: are Blu-Ray players simply commodity items now, and it doesn’t really matter what I buy? Or are there particular brands I should seek out or avoid? Does the upscaling of DVDs actually make much of a difference?
For example, I see on Carrefour’s website that there’s a Sony BDP-S1500 for $2990, and … oh … that may be the only Blu-Ray player on their website.
