Re: Looking For Blu Ray player purchase advice
At this time I would suggest to you to hold off for a couple of months. Panasonic and Pioneer will be coming out with new units at the shows in March and should be on the street as little as a month later. These units should have 1.3, connection, and possibly DTS master decoding, and of course a lower price.
I too have been looking and went out and looked at all the ones that SteveMTNO mentioned. I was almost excited about the Panasonic DMP-BD30 or 30AK until closer inspection; it does not decode many of the higher level codecs. The Samsung BD-P2400 would have been sweet but it got shelved.
My opinion...just wait just a little longer, who knows maybe by then Paramount will join Warner Bros.
