... and then they'll recommend Monster cables for the hookup.

Ghreat Ghalloping Ghu, what some folks will pay just to say they've got the "best" (insert gadget here) on the market. I personally would rather gold-plate a PS3 and get more functionality for a lower price.

What a waste of money ><

Other than the rich people of course.
The rich people. Their not going to sell masses of this thing, of course, its a limited batch or even job production device.

To be frank, I don't see how it can produce a better image to anyone without telescopic eyes than a Playstation 3 or other off the shelf Blu-Ray player.

Maybe if you plan to use it to show special screenings of Blu-Ray discs and plan to project the image onto a huge screen...

And I should use that instead of a PS3 as my Blu-Ray Player because....?

At least a PS3 has some sort of use!

Until they released The Dark Crystal on DVD, I shall remain suspicious of its circular nature.

I've done the math in my head, and I'm pretty sure that for $135k you could quite literally BUILD YOUR OWN THEATRE. Spring an extra fifty grand and you could probably hook that baby up with IMAX.

Hrm. Build my own theatre, or buy a gimped Blu-Ray player whose sole claim to fame is that it'll never skip? And it doesn't even come with its own TV? That's a toughie.

Can you even tell the difference between that and a regular Blu-ray player?Hell, my family still watches regular DVDs.

I assume this is gonna be bought only by rich people especially in the middle of this recession.

I'm betting the price probably has more to do with the fact that it's "special" than actual performance. They're trying to make a status symbol or something here...

Maybe it's for movie theatres or something... but the resolution of Bluray is pretty low for that.
