I spent $169 and sold KK and the remote for $30 then I rented and watched about 300 movies thru netflix. Still a much better deal than the LD player I paid $800 and $40-60 per movie. Actually I still own the player and 20 movies which I invested appx $1500 and they are worth about $30 now
I now have a ps3 and I still don't see why people think BR is superior. They both output the same image quality and BR has a worse menu system imho.
