The Blu-ray players Walmart sells aren't the best on the market: often they're second-tier models from makers like Magnavox and don't tend tend to have the interactive features of Profile 2.0 models. But a cheap Blu-ray player is a cheap Blu-ray player.

Walmart's latest deal is an in-store $98 price tag on the Magnavox NB530MGX, cut back from a previous price of $168. It's only Profile 1.1 so I mentioned above you won't have access to the BD Live interactive disc features. But I'm guessing people will flock to a sub-$100 player anyways.
