Originally priced at $600, the Sony BDP-S300 was the first true entry-level Blu-ray Disc player when it was announced two years ago. Now, Sony is selling this model, refurbished, for $150 on its site. This may not be a good deal for everyone: The BDP-S300 lacks support for such current Blu-ray niceties as BonusView (Profile 1.1)--for picture-in-picture content, among other features--and BD-Live, which delivers bonus content via the Internet. But it does have 1080p output over HDMI, along with Dolby TrueHD decoding, and it’s priced lower than new models today that offer BonusView.
