The Panasonic DMP-BDT220 is an affordably priced Blu-ray player stuffed with all the right features. Not only does it work with most of the major streaming video services, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon, but it's also Skype-compatible, allowing you to video chat directly from your TV (with the addition of an optional webcam, of course). You can also play back your own videos, either via the unit's USB port, its SD card slots, or over your home network. And, yes, it's 3D-compatible.

...the operating system is fantastic, using a super-intuitive onscreen layout and a remote that’s ironically easier to use than the BDT320’s new touchpad zapper. It’s also a talented picture purveyor with 2D and 3D discs, all of which maintains Panasonic's position as a formidable force.

While the DBP-BDT220 has a seductively low price, it's by no means a budget proposition. Panasonic has produced a high-performance Blu-ray player that doesn't disgrace itself when partnered with equipment from higher up the food chain.
