I recently (yesterday) purchased a PS3 Infamous Bundle for 215$ after tax and I was going to use it mainly for blu ray since I have a 360. Since I would rarely game on it, I am thinking about returning it and getting a dedicated blu ray player. Since it's the holiday's there are many good deals.
I am getting mixed reviews online between these 2 (other ideas are welcome as well 50-100$ preferably)
The panasonic gets great reviews from review sites, but they only test for a small time. The sony has better user reviews on most websites but only by a little (bestbuy, amazon, newegg, walmart etc.)
