Default Samsung's Wall-mounted Blu-ray Player

http://www.wired.com/reviews/produc...pr_0610_blueray

"Its glossy black finish and polished Darth Vader design make Samsung's newest Blu-ray box, the BD-P4600, stand out from every other player on the market. Well, it actually doesn't stand anywhere at all — it comes with the metal brackets to mount it on a wall or plant it on a desktop pedestal. And like Lord Vader, this model packs some serious force with its built-in streaming for Pandora music and Netflix movies."

I've always been surprised that there are not more options in wall mountable DVD/Blu-ray players.  With the growth in wall-mounted TV's, a wall-mounted player seems to be a logical option.  Unfortunately, all the wall-mounted players I've seen tended to be rather specialized products and were priced accordingly.  I don't care about a wall-mounted player so much for the living room since I have lots of other components that are not wall mountable anyway.  But I've got a 32" LCD wall-mounted in the bedroom and having to make space on a nearby dresser to put a DVD player takes away from some of the elegance of a wall-mounted TV.

Wall-mounting makes sense only if you can hide all the wires - and most people can't.

Another solution (though one I don't particularly care for) is to buy a TV with the DVD player integrated. Or one with Blu-ray if anyone makes such a thing.

Still have to hide the power wire, though.

Wall-mounting the TV allows it to be at a MUCH more viewable height for a bedroom, even if you can't hide the wires (of course it looks a lot better if you can).

I meant wall mounting the DVD player - the subject of the post.
