Amazon has Samsung's combo HD DVD Blu-ray player on sale for $499.98 with free shipping.

These things have really come down in price. They were nearly $800 a few months ago.

They are having problems playing SOME disks so I'd check AVS and places to see if they have them all working before you plunk down 500 bucks for one.
The LG second gen players supposedly has some issues with features and things but I think playing any disk that's in it isn't one of them.
Now the problems with 1.0/1.1/2.0 versions is still probably a issue as well if that's important to anyone wanting one.
I would have loved to go a multistandard box but I guess for now I got a good enough deal on my 2 machines.
