Waiting to see how the whole 3D thing pans out, but don’t want to wait any longer for Blu-ray?
You might want to invest in a budget Blu-ray player to hold you over. And you don’t have to skip great features like Internet streaming.
Circuit City has the Samsung BD-P1590 Blu-ray player for just $89.99. Add another item(s) for $10.01 or more (like an HDMI cable or universal remote) and you get free shipping.
The BD-P1590 also offers Netflix, Blockbuster, and YouTube streaming, as well as Pandora. It can be upgraded to a wireless connection, but that requires a Samsung USB WiFi dongle that might cost as much as the player.
Deals subject to change and may be limited as items sell out.
