The Panasonic BD30 is an excellent choice provided you have an AVR with HDMI 1.3 that will decode the advanced audio formats and you don't care about BD Live (profile 2.0). Plus, someone on another forum (a Best Buy employee) said that the BD30 price is dropping to $399 beginning July 13 (probably to compete with the newly released Sony 350). The BD30 is a no brainer at that price IMO.
