Default Couldn't resist the price

Just picked up a brand new Panasonic BD-30 player for $350 out the door. Thought this was a steal from what I been reading and the new BD-50 I'm Sure is going to be high $400 range or more so jumped on this, should have it next week. Will be intersting to compare to my Toshiba A3

Please let me (and the rest of the HD DVD fans contemplating blu ray) know how things compare. I've been extremely happy with my A2, A3 & A35. No complaints.

The Panasonic is probably the best of the BR stand-alones.

Load time is pretty quick, faster than the Sharp HP20U player, and a bit faster than the A3 with 1.3 firmware.

I can never get 'my bookmarks' working on BR. Doesn't seem to be the player, but the fact that BR doesn't offer that feature. A lot of the discs, however, will resume when turning the player back on.

You got a good deal at $350
