Released October, 2008
The Pros:7.1 analog outputs do not require an expensive receiver for users to enjoy full surround. Profile 2.0 capable. Good option for those with older high quality receivers.
The Cons:Better to get the cheaper BD35 if you have a receiver. Better to spend the extra money on a receiver upgrade. Bluray is still too expensive.
