Low Cost Blu-ray Players Being Outsold By Higher Priced Models?
In what may be a microcausm of the whole country, our local Wal-Mart(s) are having no trouble selling Panasonic’s DMP-BD30K ($488) as fast as they can get them. Meanwhile, the Sony BDP-S300 ($388) and the Magnavox NB500MG9 ($298) seem to be gathering dust on the shelf.
One local Wal-Mart sold five Panasonic players in a little over a weeks time. During that same time we counted one Magnavox, and zero Sony players sold.
Are people that want a cheap player opting for the Sony PS3 instead? While the more enthusiast type buyers are picking up the DMP-BD30K?
Whats the situation at your local Wal-Mart Store(s)?
