As we expected, in time for the holiday season, prices for technology and gadgets are plummeting. For all those who held out to see prices for Blu-Ray players to drop, the time is now. Memorex has just announced the MVBD-2510 Blu-Ray Disc player to hit retail shelves for only $269.50. The player is available immediately and should be available at various retail outlets.
The MVBD-2510 is a full-featured player that offers 1080p resolution at 24 and 60 frames per second as well as compatibility with pretty much all recorded optical media, such as DVD, DVD-R, DVD+R, CD, CD-R, video discs, etc.
The player also offers Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD decoding and bit stream output, as well as Master audio bit stream output. It supports both 5.1 and 7.1 audio signals through HDMI.
When Blu-Ray players were first introduced into the market they hovered around $1000. It is great to see prices for the hardware to come down so dramatically in such a short period of time, making this high definition format more affordable for everyone. After all, always keep in mind that Blu-Ray does not devalue your DVD collection. You can play back DVD on any Blu-Ray player and will get tremendous looking results. But in addition you can now add high definition titles as you go forward that will simply blow your mind.
