think of it. one can easily get a dvd for around 150 $ so why does a person go for a 2000 $ dvd player. the 2000 $ dvd player wont have that much of a picture difference that i am sure. so what else is there in this expensive peice of hardware. plus. what is the difference between a original dvd and a pirate dvd which is sold for around 1.5 $. very cheap indeed.
