I am an "xbox guy" but cannot see paying $200 for a good BR player when I can get a nice refurb PS3 for a little more.
Refurbs are ok definitely. 180 Day warranty isn't bad as it only has a 360 day warranty anyways. Most electronics die pretty quickly. A refurbed one will likely show problems earlier as you can assume that they had an issue and if it wasn't fixed correctly it would probably die within 180 days.
The good news is that refurbs are an excellent deal and usually repaired by hand. I bet it'll last you a while (as in years obviously). If it gets passed that 180 day mark and dies it's probably just bad luck.
I have a refrubed HD TV and it's lasted without problems for years. My refurbed Dell developed a problem within 2 weeks and then lasted years.
Good call. Although they may be lowering PS3 prices in the near future.
The show is a great baseball game and PS3 exclusive. It's hard though
