Samsung BD-P2500

Unveiled first at Samsung's line show a couple of months ago, news of the BD-P2500 Blu-ray player was embargoed until the launch at CEDIA, but the 2550, an identical player intended exclusively for Best Buy, let the cat out of the bag well before that. The 2500 is fully compatible with BD-Live, including 1GB of onboard memory—none of this memory-stick nonsense. Also, HQV processing is back—huzzah! It should be available in October for $500.
