Panasonic's Second Generation Blu-ray Player is Slightly More Affordable

Clocking in at a solid $599, Panasonic's DMP-BD10A is their second venture into Blu-ray territory. The newest model has 7.1 surround, Dolby True HD and dts-HD, EZ-Sync Panasonic integration with other Panasonic components, and upconverts regular DVDs to 1080p via HDMI.

We're not sure shelling out $599 for a standalone player is wise seeing as you can get a PS3 for the same price, but there's got to be more features on Panasonic's DMP-BD10A than a PlayStation. Right? Right? At least this comes with five free movies.
