I've settled on an LG 55 3D TV. Now comes the question. What is the best performing 3d Blu Ray player? Obviously I plan to stream content, watch 3D and 2D movies. Using the iPad as a remote would be nice, but not a deal breaker.

Please cast your vote for a model you own and like, so I can put one in the Cart! Thanks!

the PS3 is a good one ... within it's limits. I used my PS3 as a blu ray player until I bought the Panasonic 3D wifi blu ray player, it does everything the PS3 does and more .... such as converting 2D blu ray and DVD movies to 3D. obviously they can't have the depth of an original 3D movie, but it does add depth to a flat 2D movie. I'm referring to the DMP-BDT210 Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Player ....
Panasonic DMP-BDT210 Integrated-Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player

Top rated in a Cnet review too: http://reviews.cnet.com/blu-ray-dvd-players/?filter=1000036_3808726_

Another model DMP-BDT310 adds a second HDMI out to drive a sound system if needed .... another $40- $50 bucks.

Any recommendations for people that don't give a hoot about PS3 and have no interest in buying a PS3?

CDs, Super Audio CDs, DVDs, Blu-Rays, PS1 games, PS2 games (depending on the model or I believe they recently added a few downloadable from PSN, they also remastered many of the best/popular ones anyway), PS3 games, has Netflix (probably other streaming services also), etc. all playable.

The majority of PS3's do not support SACD.

Point confirmed.. looks like it's similarly compatible as PS2 support. I based that comment on my old 60GB fatty. Just checked one of my 160GB boxes and I'm not seeing a Super Audio CD logo. I personally never had any SACDs anyway, so good point, but I'm sure that went unused by probably 99% of users anyway, I just threw it out there for anyone part of the 1% with SACDs.

I have a Panasonic BDP310 because I wanted the 2 HDMI outputs. I like it. I also have a Sony S380 and another Panasonic BDP65. I like the quality of the Pany310 best with some nice features like the touch sensor on top of cabinet. You can't see much difference in picture quality but I notice a bit nicer sharpness and color on my 9 ft screen with the Pany310. All have the True HD sound so I see no difference in that. As for the load speed, the Pany310 works fast enough for me.

If money is no object, absolutely the Oppo BDP-93. Best picture and digital sound quality on the market and phenomenal build quality, reliability & customer service. Also, it is a nearly universal disc player playing Blu-ray, DVD (with one of the best scaling chips on the market- the Marvell QDeo), CD, SACD, DVD-audio, streaming video from Netflix, Blockbuster & Vudu, & DLNA support for streaming most common media files from PCs on your home network. If money is REALLY no object, then the Oppo BDP-95 adds analog audio quality that is among the best on the market to the already fantastic 93.

ps3 by far, processing power and RAM of a gaming system plays a big role, plus current $200 pricepoint can't be beat

These 2 are the best in my opinion. Both have excellent reviews, and both stream NEXTFLIX well with no problems at all. These both also have 2d-3d conversion, BUILT IN WI-FI, and are 2011 models with component video and hdmi outputs. These are the Samsung BD-D6700 and Sony BDP-S780. Both of these are very expensive tho, even still, but so worth the money. The Samsung has dual HDMI outs on it. Me and my mom bought 1 each of the Samsung models at Christmas on sale (Amazon), and the Sony BDP-S780's (we bought 3) are on their way to me from Amazon right now. We actually sold 4 of our older 2009 model blu-ray players just to purchase these. Of course, we still had to put up a huge difference in price. A third option would be the Sony BDP-S590. It does all the same things as these 2 does, but does not have component video. THESE 2 PLAYERS DO EVERYTHING THE PS3 DOES AND ARE WAY CHEAPER THAN A PS3 OR AN OPPO TOO.

OPPO 93 / OPPO 95......hands down for the money. The 93 is a steal at 499.00.

Amazing player. Go read the reviews/awards on the net. Nothing at its price range can touch it. Expect to pay alot more for a player with the same quality. It's that amazing.

PS3, winner by default. 3-D movie+ 3-D gaming experience + all the apps your looking for vudu, amazon video, Netflix, heck you can get MLB if thats what your into. Hands down best bang for your buck

This post asked about the best blu-ray player on the market? Not the best multi-media device with a blu-ray player.

Ps3 is a great blu-ray player. Oppo is better at playing just blu-rays. With the the leading dvd upscalling on the market.

Look at the post for the OPPO-93 that has 21,328 replies. 2,470,070 views.

OPPO needs no hype from me. It's that good.
