The DMP-BDT210 is a good value for someone who wants a
3D Blu-ray player with integrated WiFi. It has plenty of additional
features, too--such as Skype capability, DLNA media streaming, the Touch
Free Sensor, and a thorough assortment of streaming VOD options. The
lack of dual HDMI outputs means that this player is best mated with a
3D-capable A/V receiver, if you want to enjoy the high-resolution audio
tracks on some Blu-ray discs.Additional Resources
