Re: Blu-ray player wanted or ideas...

I moved this to the Blu-ray player forum where I believe you will get more recommendations.

Have you considered the Panasonic DMP-BDT210 Integrated-Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player for $139?

It seems to have pretty good ratings.

I do not recommend Samsung. I purchased one that will not play the Starwars box set in Bluray. Look elsewhere.

I'll second this!
The Costco version (BDP-BX58 ) can be found slightly cheaper usually - if you have a Costco membership. I have it and the previous model (S570) and really like both.

Any particular features you are looking for?

I was looking into Oppo - but decided that I didn't NEED the extra features enough to justify 5x the price.

Re: Blu-ray player wanted or ideas...

If you are wanting to spend more for a premium unit, I don't think there is any better option than the OPPO. If not I think the Panasonic DMP-BDT210 is one of the best all around. Right now I think the best value player is the Sony BDP-S580. I have had both and do not hesitate to recommend either.
