"Finally, a Blu-Ray player worth the coin"4.0 starson by coastaldoc
Pros: Rock solid, made in Japan
Cons: Expensive, few extras
Summary: After wading into the HD waters with a HD-DVD player which lasted all of two days, and other first generation Blu-Ray players which required firmware upgrades just to play a movie all the way through...here is a rock solid performed without too much hype. It's made in Japan, which based on my previous experience with Panasonic products (a first generation plasma tv and a first generation DVD player) almost ensures worry free operation. Downside compared to a PS3 is obvious, no gaming or hard drive capabilities. Upside, it does what it does well.
