The panasonic 215 is on sale for $129.99 ($40 off), and the sony bx58 is on sale for just $99.99 ($30 off).

Both are 3D and have wifi.

Both are available in-store.

The 215 is the same as the 210, right? FYI. Amazon has the 210 for $127 with free shipping and no tax.

Yes, the only difference is the 215 includes an hdmi cable.

The other difference is costco has a 90 day return policy for a little bit of extra peace of mind.

Costco's website says it's sold out. I might stop by our local warehouse and see if they have it in stock.

They had dozens of both in stock in-store when I checked. You could always call too, to save a trip.

Sony's basic BR player: BX 18 (no 3d or wi-fi) is on sale again at costco for $69.99. Great no-frills player.

Just a reminder that Costco charges sales tax on the pre-rebate price. I was just over there and yes, the BDT-215 is on sale now at $129, but since I don't need the cable, I think I'll just go the Amazon route on the 210.

Costco's rebate ends on 3/04, I believe. You can def. get it at that price until then, although there may be another promotion, unless it sells out.

I bought from costco a samsung BD-em57C. only bad reviews I read is people having issues doing netflix streamind and using other apps. personally I dont care about software compatibility, I want a good blu ray player to output good video and audio and do what it was created to do originally. I care more about hardware than software, even though manufactures these days focus more on software now. but I just got through watching a blu ray on my player and looks pretty nice. was Jurassic park. not sure if it was the player or the movie but in any of the indoor scenes where it was dark like the computer lab you can see the resolution move more vs the outside scenery.

I know costco and Samsclub only carry that model but what model is that supposed to be equivelant to that other retailers carry so I can look up more reviews ?

SONY 32XBR6
SAMSUNG 46C6500

BD 40
HD DVD 28
