Just a heads up for people considering buying their first Blu-ray player. In the near future, internet bandwidth is going to explode. Google has announced to an extent that it is playing with the ISP business and will be offering 1 Gbps. I’d say the absolute fastest you can get currently is about 25 Mbps, with an average consumer speed of about 10-15 Mbps. That’s at LEAST a 400% increase in data transfer. What does this mean? Streaming. Physical media is already on its way to the grave with this development, and Blu-ray producers are making last ditch efforts at selling their impending-waste-of-money. So, if you don’t think you’ll be into the whole streaming concept coupled with our rapidly growing hard drive space, I’d still say wait on buying Blu-ray discs and players. Why? Because when the crap hits the fan, these products won’t be worth much, and the price should drop even further in my opinion. If you believe in BitTorents, youtube, megavideo, or netflix, you may see the truth in what I’m saying. Besides, there are a lot of iffy things about Blu-ray anyway. If you don’t have a 1080p tv, you won’t notice the difference between a dvd. Even if you do have 1080p, there are plenty of debates about the quality. Just food for thought.
