What's the point? You can't even buy discs for it.

How do you record to it? There isn't a Blu-ray rom or anything, seems like a waste of 4 grand for the player and disc.

As far as I know they aren't even released yet, so thats probably a display or demo unit that some employee found it and is trying to make some cash.

I htink Blu-Ray and Hi Def are just a waste of money. They make it seem like all other TVs are useless. I use a $15 black and white TV to play x-box

Let's just say by the time people can actualy afford a Blu-ray player or a HD-DVD player everything will cost a hell of a lot less. Just remember back whe the first DVD burner for PCs came out, they were in the $500 range, now you can get one for $50.

Also look at normal DVD players. When I got mine it was $200, now I can go pick up a really nice, small one for under $50.

Yes, probably so. Even if, no CD is worth 400 dollars.

Think of it this way, if you pay for one of these and the disks, will you get your money's worth? I think I know everyone's answer...
