Value Added: Best Buy to release bargain HDTV/Blu-Ray combo unit soon

September 23, 2009 by  

ns-lbd32x_blu-ray_lcdAre we shocked that Best Buy/Insignia will offer a 1080p LCD with Blu-ray player built-in for as low as $599 soon?

Not really, as we’ve been expecting units from overseas to hit the value market here in the US for quite some time.

Marked “coming soon” on their site/stores, when it hits, players like Sharp will be forced to respond, as it will easily fall $200-300 cheaper than a comparable unit from them.  Specs are spotty at the moment, but we aren’t necessarily expecting a state of the art kind of unit stats wise for this price point, but solid and decent more than likely.

Wal-Mart, its your turn now. It’ll be interesting to see how they respond to this “challenge” of sorts.
