I am new to Blu-Ray players and am trying to decide between the Panasonic DMP-BD85K vs Sony BDP-S370. I can get the Panasonic for $125 directly from Panasonic or the Sony for $100 from multiple stores.
So, it looks like the Panasonic gives me the wi-fi connectivity built-in and the Sony does not. Are there any other differences? My wife thinks that Sony has a better reputation for quality. Currently, we do not stream any movies and have not used any on-line video resources, although our teenage boys might like that feature. If the MSRP is any indication, the Panasonic lists for $250 and Sony for $180 with only $25 difference in price on sale, the Panny sounds like a better deal.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
PS: I am leaning towards a Panasonic 50" G25 for a TV, but may have to put that off for a short while since my 15+ year old 32" Curtis Mathes tube TV is still working. I just bought a Epson 8350 projector and the wife does not understand why we would need to replace a working TV.
