    I got a 80 gig model the fan does going some, but I heard louder fans before in pcs. I did get the 2 year extended warranty just in case something happens to it.

    I would place it in a media closet away from anyone who could hear it. The media closet has it's own set of climate controls, which I keep it at a constant 68 degrees and a humidity around 20%.

    I'd read a lot of favorable reports on the (discontinued) LG BH200 SuperBlu Blu-ray/HD DVD player from folks who found it at Best Buy. I checked online and it was sold out. I then checked for in store availability, and the store nearest me was reported to have them in stock. I went over there today, and they had one in the box and a display. Unable to cut a deal on price, so paid $399 for it. If the price should go down in the next 30 days, they'll refund the difference. Certainly a better deal than buying a $299 Blu-ray only player. It'll clean up the Home Theater installation in the family room.

    Samsung no longer lists the BD-P1000 on its web site. In searching on pricegrabber.com, I find only one dealer selling it, and that was a refurbished unit for $479. You might want to check avsforum.com for reviews and comments about this player. Go to the blu-ray and HD DVD areas, dual format players.

    If you can find an LG BH200 at $399 or less, it's a good buy, based on reviews I've seen. We watched our first Blu-ray disc on it last night - "Surf's Up", and the picture quality was stunning on our 55 inch Sony LCD RPTV.

    Sony's well-reviewed BDP-S350 is down to $299 at a bunch of places, and as of today it is now BD Live 2.0.

    Don't forget that signing up for the Sony CC gets you $150 off your first Sony purchase. Many over at avs are grabbing the 350 for $150 or less total with this deal.

    Yep, it's been the #1 selling BD title ever since about 3 days after Iron Man was released - I'm guessing it will shatter the BD sales record that Iron Man set too!
