Memorex Readies $270 MVBD-2510 Blu-ray Player

Here it is people, the first Blu-ray player to be announced with an MSRP under $300. It might not be quite as high-class as Goldmund’s Eidos 20 BD and it might not be quite as versatile as LG’s BG-3000 with integrated Netflix streaming, but those of you looking for some Blu-ray love on the cheap this is definitely right up your alley. Specs:

  • Progressive scan Blu-ray Disc player 1080p capability for higher definition video content
  • Full HD 1080p, DVD up-conversion up to 1080p (480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p), 24p, 60p video frame rate
  • Multi-channel audio content (supports more advanced Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD)
  • BD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R DL, CD-ROM, CD, CD-R/-RW
  • 16:9 / 4:3 picture select
  • On-screen graphical user interface
  • Slow motion function (2x – 4x – 8x)
  • RW/FF play function (2x – 4x – 8x – 16x)
  • VFD display

In a nutshell, Memorex’s upcoming offering is a pretty capable player at a pretty affordable price. Nothing more, nothing less. This unit should go a long way in making Blu-ray accessible to a much wider variety of consumer. It could also do us all a favor as competitive brands are forced to respond to the lower price range. The MVBD-2510 will be available in November just in time for the gift-giving season and will carry a recommended price tag of $269.99.
