Looking for a cheap entry into Blu-ray? Now's your chance.

Written by Ced Kurtz on .

Samsung's BD-P1500 isn't their top-of-the-line Blu-ray player, but a lot of folks seem to love it.  A recent firmware upgrade makes it BD-Live compatible, too.  It's been hovering around $300 for a long time, but you can now pick one up for a song (and the entire Matrix movie collection along with it if you act fast).  If I had a spare $215 lying around, it would be on its way to me now.

Then again, word on the street is that it'll be $100 cheaper on Black Friday.  That's pretty much the price difference of the Matrix collection on Blu-ray, so the choice is yours.
