Summary: Great DVD Player! I bought this to go along with a new 47 inch HDTV and have been thrilled with it thus far. It was quick and easy to set up and not only does it give a stunning viewing experience with Blu-Ray discs, it also does a great job of up-converting standard DVDs as well. The slim design makes it great to store without taking up a ton of room in your media cabinet or TV stand which is a definite plus.
Summary: I upgraded from BD30. First bought the Sony S550, but did not like. Returned it and bought the BD55K instead. Picture is sharper than Sony, sound in TrueHD and HD-MA is fuller than Sony, sub out did not require 10bd boost. The remote and menu selections could be a little faster (maybe with future firmware), but not a big complaint. Wished the remote had a "quick replay" (ten seconds) button.
Summary: More of a question than a review.
After reading all of the favorable reviews, I'm considering buying either the DMP-BD35K or DMP-BD55K. But I'm unsure on how to hook either of them up to my other media. I have a Pan. SC-HT820 Home Theater (w/the following connections on the back of the receiver....DVD - Y, PB PR & S-video - DVD/VHS - Video Out, L Line Out & R Line Out - EXT - Video In, L Video Line In & R Video Line In. No Audio In or Out Connections. I also have a Pan.
