Its superb image quality, excellent design, and wide feature set make the DMP-BD55K a tempting Blu-ray choice.

On all counts, the Panasonic DMP-BD60K is a well-made Blu-ray player, and it ranks among the best such devices you can buy today.

If you’re in the market for a new HDTV, these three models from Samsung and Sony all have fantastic picture quality.
