From my research, both units seem to be essentially equal in quality/features, with each being a little better in different areas but balancing out to around the same overall grade. The only advantage I could think of for getting the Panny is to have the different internet suite/access, but it seems they have both similar functionality there, and if anything the LG might be better.
Any opinions for deciding between these 2 devices?
I'd like to hear recommendations at well of these to players. Which one loads a Blue-ray disc faster
, as well as which one performs better with 3D? And I'm aware that the display performance of the TV comes into play with 3D.
I've been reading the forum area of the LG model not playing DVDs properly, which LG's been trying to fix with various firmware updates. I've also read issues with the Panny model having an issue or two as well, needing firmware updates.
So, which of these two players do people recommend? I can buy the LG for about $150 and the Panny for about $175. Although the price difference doesn't matter to me. It is the performance and peace of mind that does matter.
