Black Friday Rumor: $149 Samsung BDP-1500 Blu-ray Player
The folks at Gizmodo have been tipped off by a source close to Ultimate Electronics that Samsung's BDP-1500 Blu-ray player will be selling for $149 come Black Friday, November 28. Even though Ultimate Electronics is a Midwestern chain, it seems likely that the deal will be Samsung-imposed meaning the Blu-ray player will be $149 elsewhere as well.
This makes sense. In September, the BDP-1500 was selling for $149 with the purchase of a Samsung LN40A550 LCD TV. And right now it's selling for $180 when purchased with Samsung's HT-AS720ST 5.1 channel home theater system, plus a free copy of The Ultimate Matrix Collection. Now if only Blu-ray prices stayed in this range maybe we'd see a little more mainstream consumption.
