My blu ray player just died which is a bummer but at least it happened just before Black Friday, :)\n\nThe Sony UBP X800 gets great reviews. Is there any other player I should be considering? Budget is up to $500 but I'd rather pay the $270 or so that the UBP X800 costs.\n\nAlso I have a fair number of older black and white DVDs. I like old black and white movies. Are these going to look crummy on a high end blu ray player? They look so-so on my existing blu ray player but I'm not exactly sure why.
