OMG!! What A Life Saver and Blessing For All 2010 Samsung DLP 3D Ready TV Owners!

Summary: For anyone out there who has a 2010 Samsung DLP 3D Ready TV, this 3D Blu-ray Disc Player is a god-send for real. I have searched high and low for a way to watch 3D movies on this tv (which is almost impossible without the proper equipment) because the design was not originally slated to work with the current display output for the modern 3D blu-ray players. You see most of you newer 3D blu-ray Disc Player outputs to side by side and top/bottom formats only.
Summary: This model DMP-BDT300 always seems to be out of stock at most major retailers and also priced high. Panasonic is coming out with 3 news dvd models in Spring 2011. I will wait for those. you can google all 3 and see they have more advanced features. Panasonic DMP-BDT110, 210 & 310. I see the BDT310 has built in WiFi.
Summary: I used an Oppo 981HD and a 983H for DVD upscaling. I bought the BDT300 for BD playback, and to have 3D support for future compatibility. I am mainly after image quality. The setup is HDMI 1.4 connection to Panasonic plasma TV and projector. Audio is going separately through coaxial digital outputs to AV processor, then to power amps. Image quality through BD is very good, contrasty, sharp, fluid and also film-like in the same time.
Summary: I bought this player to replace my Samsung BD-C6900 3D blu-ray player. While the Samsung blu-ray player was very fast and sleak, it was plagued with all kinds of firmware and hdmi handshake problems. My entertainment system is up to date for all the latest in 3D trends and HDMI 1.4. I own a Samsung UN55C700 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz 3D LED TV and a 3D capable Onkyo AV Receiver - both of which take HDMI 1.4.
Summary: If anyone has a legacy Samsung like me (I have the HL61A750) or other, I highly recommend this player for 3D viewing. I bought it new from an Amazon user for $280 and could not be more satisfied with my purchase. This is one of the few blu-ray players that will play 3D in checkerboard format (required for legacy 3D-ready HD TVs) and it does so with breathtaking quality. It is highly recommended by me for that use.
Summary: I am very pleased with this purchase and so far it has performed as I expected. I purchased this particular product because of its two HDMI outputs so I would not have to replace my present A/V receiver. The hook up and set up was easy and I must say the delivery from the dealer was very timely in fact it arrived before I expected it. So far it has played all of my discs of various types flawlessly. I certainly would recommend this product.
Summary: While I want this player, the new Oppo 93 is going to make this thing obsolete at the 400 dollar price point BB wants as an authorized dealer. At 350, it starts to look more reasonable, but would be easiest to consider at 300. 6th Ave sells it for 299 on their site, but that's without any warranty. Hopefully this drops in the next week or I'll hold off for the newest Oppo in one month's time. Better hurry, Panny!
