Chinese Blu-Ray player (GoWell G875)

http://www.gowellent.net/product%20w...ries/G875.html
It’s from China so that should give an indication that it’ll be cheep but look at the features it includes.


I wish the PS3 had that many video playback capabilities.

Anyone here baffled by these features. It just seems too good to be true and if it gets released in the US for around 400 dollars or less it would have a big impact on the format war. Come to think about it, Blu-Ray player manufactures would be competing more against the G875 than Toshibaís HD DVD players.

Of course, this might be a generic, not brand name limited chipset that could be used by a multitude of generic brand names all with different configurations. (heck, this could even be branded as a Westinghouse Blu-ray player.)

unless a budget HD-DVD player comes out, Blu-ray is taking the lead in the wars.

Blu-ray already has the lead with HD DVD trailing.

The price point for Xmas of this year has to be $199 IMO. HD DVD will be there but Blu-ray could make some waves if it's coming in at $299

Exactly, conventional introductory pricing is to cover expenses, attract manufacturers and provide an very, very big profit for companies, but it is predatory to the consumer, almost fantasy like pricing. HD DVD is coming shortly with cheaper pricing (which undercuts PS3) so BD has to match, and the traditional Chinese route is the route to go, and the price where an lot more of the public will buy, I think beneath $200 is ultimately where most sales could be made.

I can't read the Chinese text: what can this do that a PS3 can't?

The latest Chinese looks like a page not found 404 error.

Judging by the model name, that Blu-Ray player should be the successor of this but I do find it strange that they had to delete the specifications of the Blu-Ray version.

The good news is that I do have the specifications but Iím not sure when this player will ever see the light of day. It just looks like someone wrote a list of all of the features that they would like to see in a high definition player. Hopefully it comes to the US if it exists.

What's needed for me to embrace Blu-Ray are more reliable and cheaper authoring options.

- You can author Blu-Ray to inexpensive red laser media, but playback is hit or miss (mostly miss) with most if not all Blu-Ray players not supported except Playstation3.

- You can assure player compatibility by using Blu-Ray burners and Blu-Ray media, but this is expensive if you are only trying to distribute 5 minute videos. Burners are $499-999 and media $20-25 at retail.

- Blu-Ray authoring software is generally more expensive as well.
