Costco’s Big Blu-ray Push

Costco has ramped up their in-store Blu-ray promotion, with large stacks of Blu-ray players right when you come in the door. They have also added a huge new Blu-ray endcap in the DVD section of the store. The endcap includes a large display dedicated to Planet Earth on Blu-ray.

Costco carries the Sony BDP-BX1 ($279.99), Samsung BD-P1500 (on sale $229.99), and the Philips BDP7200 ($249.99).

Have you seen the same displays at your local Costco?

    Why would anyone purchase blu ray at 2-3x the cost? I am purchasing normal dvds with my cheap $59 upconvert DVD player and it is very very close to blu ray on my 65in 1080p.

    Sure blu ray is better, but not 2-3x better.

    Save your money or spend it on something else!!!
