After doing quite a bit of research to find the best Blu-ray DVDplayer we found that our best bet was to go with the Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-ray Disc Player. Not only was it priced fairly it had over 4.2 stars out of 5 and 368 reviews.
The price runs about $168.00 to $199.95. You can also watch for sales to get the best price. I’ve seen them as low as 125.00. Although the Samsung BD-P3600 and the LG BD300 are said to load more quickly, the Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-ray Disc Player still received better reviews and higher ratings.
I have a lot of great things to say about Panasonic itself. I’ve owned a lot of Panasonic electronics, such as TV’s, Stereo equipment, and VCR’s and I must say that Panasonic has outdone itself again.
Another customer said the Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-ray Disc Player was easy to use and had an easy to use interface on the remote. I would definitely agree with that as well. As of this date, May, 7th, 2010 there have been 368 customer reviews and a whopping 215 gave it 5 stars. Also 113 gave it four stars. It seems like many of the complaints had to do with the compatibility issues with other systems, such as input and output devices. However this didn’t affect me. For more customer reviews click here.
It is very clear what the specifications are, when you read the item description at http://www.amazon.com, and you can also call with any questions. So if there were any issues they should have known or have been able to find out before they purchased the product. In my opinion, giving the Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-ray Disc Player 5 stars is not overstated.
As far as the picture quality goes the DMP-BD60 received 4.8 out of 5 stars. The remote got 4.3 stars, the sound quality earned 4.6 stars and the response time was at 3.9 stars. Picture quality, sound and remote control use are very important attributes, so you can see that the reviews were very good on those.
