All those eagerly awaiting the Sherwood's
lower end Blu-ray offering
, the BDP-5003, must readjust their October launch expectations by one month. Unfortunately, at $299, a pretty standard Bonus View equipped player doesn't really scream "value" to us -- unless compared to similar high price marques like the Integra DBS-6.9
, but with a LG BD300
for only $50 more and the Panasonic DMP-BD35
at the same price, it's hard to justify. The 5.1-analog packing big brother BDP-6003
failed to impress at CEDIA, but if 1080p24, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA output via HDMI have you interested, punch the read link (warning: PDF) and let us know if we missed anything.
