Samsung's DB-UP5000 HD DVD / Blu-ray player: $799, shipping mid-to-late December
Good news. This time, we won't be burdening you with more talk of delays to Samsung's DB-UP5000 dual format player. On the contrary, a Samsung spokesperson told Dealerscope that the much anticipated HD DVD and Blu-ray player is on target for a "mid-to-late December" launch. Better yet, the price is down from $999 to a more reasonable $799. That is, until you consider the combined cost of a $
499 $399 PS3 and sub-$200 HD DVD player.
