  • Why use Larger desktop computers with 1980 x 1080P screens (22" thru 27") as a substitute to your HDTV paired with a BD player?

Carousels are too expensive to make and service. Using Sony as a example they went the cheap route on their entire lineup of Blu-ray players, and abandoned that market.
Good post and great points, except for the last one. Some people don't have a HDTV, so watching BD on a PC is a good alternative.
