Looking at getting a dedicated 3D Blu Ray player instead of using my old Fat PS3.

Got Best Buy reward points and a gift card, so this is what I see they have currently, based on what I have read it seems like Sony and Panasonic are the best main-stream units.

Which of these is the best?
Sony BDPS5200 is on sale for $103
Panasonic DMP-BDT360 is $130
Panasonic DMP-BDT330 is on closeout for $130(down from $190)

I don't need 4K upscaling. I don't need dual hdmi outputs. I will be sending signal into my Yamaha RX-V673 which can decode all HD signals. Is there any reason to look at the Sony 6200 or the Panasonic 460?

Thanks

BD & 3D - tie
streaming - Sony although I hear some issues with Netflix
DVD upconversion - Panasonic
DLNA - Sony

Moving up to Sony 6200 gets you excellent DVD upconversion (or so I hear).

But if you only care about BD and 3D performance then get the one that catches your fancy. They're pretty much same.
