Panasonic DMP-BD35 - Blu-ray disc player

The Good Excellent image quality on Blu-ray Discs; Profile 2.0 compliant; onboard decoding for all high-resolution soundtrack formats, plus bit-stream output.

The Bad PlayStation 3 offers much more functionality and faster navigation, although it costs more.

The Bottom Line The Panasonic DMP-BD35 represents the best value in standalone Blu-ray players, with excellent image quality, a comprehensive feature set, and a price that's significantly lower than the PS3.
