If best value is the criteria, because of what it does and at what price and how well, I agree.

For Blu-ray movie playback reliability and quality and ease of use, I vote for the Panasonic DMP-BD10A so if someone is only interested in Blu-ray movie playback and must have a player right now, I vote for the Panasonic DMP-BD10A. The Samsung BD-P1400 would be a very close second but I have read of more problems with it than with the Panasonic player. The BD-P1400 offers more with the advanced audio codecs so if all issues are fixed, it would be my recommendation.

Since the PS3 60GB is a great game console and SACD player for those with HDMI 1.1 or above processing, it still reigns as best overall Blu-ray player value to me for all that it does in addition to Blu-ray.

Unless someone wants a PS3, I still recommend waiting to buy Blu-ray because even better players are coming soon. For those like myself that must have something now, any one of the three I mentioned are very good in my opinion.

I'd agree, simply because it should be upgradable to profile 1.1 and/or 2.0.

PS3 because you can use it as a media server client, plus you can load Ubuntu onto it and use it as HTPC. this still needs some work but it is getting there, Sony just needs to allow some better access to the hardware. soon you will be getting video downloads , and better online options with the home roll out .

plus it plays games, for those who care :D
