The player has an RRP of $329, which is a pretty decent price for a Profile 2.0 player with an SDHC card slot and DivX HD and AVCHD playback support. There’s no inbuilt storage though, so you’ll need to factor in the cost of an SD card to use any BD-Live functions.
The thing I like most about the announcement that the BDX2000 is on sale in Australia though? This line from the press release:
This product does not play HD DVD discs. Blu-ray discs with high-definition content required for HD viewing.
Oh, HD DVD. We’ll always remember you…
