Just seen the above blu ray player on amazon and currys for £99. Would it be worth upgrading my Panasonic BD-55 for it?
LG 50PZ950T | Panasonic DMP-BDT320 | Marantz SR-6006 | Mission M35i Floorstanders | B&W HTM2 Centre | Mission 77DS Rears | B&W DS6 THX Rears | Paradigm PS-1000 Sub | PS3 Slim 320GB |
I would say so:)

A bit of a snip at £99 I'd say

Depends on the reason for upgrade. Don't expect a massive jump in picture & sound. You'll struggle to notice an improvement. It will however be much faster to load, & probably quieter.

I think if I can sell mine for a reasonable price, I will get it just to get rid of the hassle of switching between the PS3 and my panny for 3D and 2D
Sounds like a good idea to me. You'd be getting lossless audio with 3D Blu-rays, too.
I'd only add that you'd get the same performance, minus wireless connectivity, with the 120, which is even cheaper.

A year on & i'm still happy with mine & i paid the full whack at the time,so for £99 it's a no brainer , superb player that is slient & looks the biz.
the pq & audio are spot on
