Nothin is "free". . . remember that.

How much of a profit do they make off each unit if they can give stuff away for "free".

I usually tell people, "It's not free, it's INCLUDED."

I think that part of the reason for them "including" this Blu-Ray player with the receivers, which vary from $1,200 to $5,500, is because the player is "outdated" in that it's only Profile 1.1 compatible.

It's currently going for ~$300 on eBay so if someone was looking to buy one of those five receivers anyway they could, in theory, either put the player up on eBay or it could possibly fetch a bit more on Craigslist and use the money towards another player or component of their in-home theater.
