Samsung BD-P1000 price drops??

This forum addresses questions on Blu-Ray

On Crutchfield's site, they have dropped the price of the Samsung BD-P1000 to $599, calling it a 'price break' of $200.  1080p on HDMI only.  720p & 1080i via component.  Upconverting to 1080p on HDMI only.

Sony best follow suit if they want to stay in this marketing game.  And it didn't take long for Samsung to drop the price of the Blu-Ray from $999 to $599.

Here's the Crutchfield Linky 

We will see how this marketing war between two different formats and several different manufacturers shakes out in the long run.

Hopefully SONY learned their lesson from Betamax.

Sony certainly needs to drop the price to stay competitive in the market.  The price drop had better be with a new machine and not on the BDPS1 though.

Thanks for the link Jim. Not an original thought, but I do believe that the winner of the format war will be the one who can drop the price enough to make their player affordable to the masses. Looks like Samsung just to a step in the right direction.
It will be interesting to see if Sony follows suit.

Joe- Sony and their dealers have a pretty good track record of lowering their prices the year after the initial Flagship model is released. For example the street price on the DA7100ES got down to about 1/4 of what the DA9000ES debuted at the year before.

Keen observation Maxx and your right Sony dealers do lower their pricing a year or so after the Flagship model is released. Samsung has won the battle but I am still hoping that Sony will win the format war, this time.
