Blu-ray players for $150

The prices of entry-level, off-brand Blu-ray disc players are expected to fall to the equivalent of about $150 during 2009, according to a Tuesday DigiTimes report. Lite-On IT, Taiwan's largest maker of half-height optical disc drives, will enter the market of standalone Blu-ray players with its own entry and price it at about $150, says local Chinese daily, the Economic Daily News.

The daily paper turns to research numbers that say about five million Blu-ray disc players were sold worldwide in 2008, and the number is expected to more than double for 2009, rising to 11 million units. During this past holiday season, many Blu-ray palyers were priced at or near the $200 mark, with as many as four Blu-ray movies included as part of a bonus bundle.
