Man, poor Toshiba. The company's already sucked up its pride and started putting Blu-ray drives
in its laptops
, but here's its first stab at a proper standalone player, the BDX2000
, on Best Buy shelves a bit early for $199 -- or $50 less than its announced price. Sure, that makes sense given the falling prices of Blu-ray decks as the holidays approach, but even at that price it's not super competitive with the slew of other decks out there that can do Netflix streaming. We'll see if Tosh's next efforts are a little more interesting than this
, or if this is just more heartbreak than its worth.
