    I would agree with Kingfats on this, though as to why the older model is more expensive????
    Well its the same with the Panasonics.
    You can find BD50 as a more expensive player than the BD55 which replaced it.
    I am only guessing here but i think the original models would have been bought in at a set cost and were then very quickly upgraded 50 to 55 and 500 to 550 so any old stock were left on the shelves and had probably cost the supplier more money to buy in , in the first instance. They are just trying to recover their outlays. Like i say only my thoughts but it does seem strange the older, out of date models still appear to cost more.:confused:
