    I am in the market for my first Blu Ray player. I finally upgraded by TV, my old tv was component but now that I can finally use HDMI I am looking for a Blu Ray 3D for $200 and under. I would love to get the oppo but it is out of my budget. After going through lots of posts and reading reviews it sounds like one of the panasonic players fit into my budget. The DMP-BDT220 or BDT320 look good on spec but does anyone have any advice on these players or any player that would fit into my budget? If it matters the Blu ray will plug into a Denon AVR3312 and sent to a vizio 65" LED.

    I LOVE my Pan. 220. It's a great player, DVD upscaler and Netflix streamer in 1080p. Which Pan. model you buy depends on the features you need.

    I have the Panasonic DMP-BDT110 and it has been a great player. I highly recommend the Panasonic 3D players.

    I am currently installing the Panny BDT-320 at a client's home, and it's a nice little unit (it's really slim, thanks to its slot loading drive). It's been selling in the $150 range, and is 3D capable plus Netflix, Amazon, and other streaming apps. The only thing I'm not completely sold on is the new remote style. Basically, they've moved most of the buttons on-screen, and you use the touchpad on the remote to navigate.

    I'll report later how well the player works with a universal remote like the Harmony 900 and/or if it is fully compatible with the older Panny BD remotes.

    I bet it supports all the IR codes from previous models, try using the codes from the 310. I have been using a old discrete power off code from several years ago with my newer Panasonic players. I second everyones opinion here. For your price range you can't go wrong with a Panasonic player. I have a 300 and 310.

    Adam, I'm taking the remote from my BD60 with me today. I noticed when I replaced my COX cable remote with a newer one over the weekend that there was only one remote code for Panasonic BD players, so any older codes should work.

    To clarify, I'm installing several BDT-320's....... they are not that difficult to install.
