Summary: Purchased this model because it offered SACD playback capability. 3D capability not of interest, not tested. Pleased with (2D) playback of blu-ray disks and std DVDs on a 720p, 50-inch Pioneer plasma monitor. Also pleased with playback of SACDs.
Summary: I bought this because I wanted more than just a Blu ray player. I wanted something that would both stream films etc from my computer as well as play them from a hard drive AND play blu rays in very high quality.
