Panasonic DMP-BD605 Blu-ray Player Lands at Costco
Panasonic has released it’s DMP-BD605 Blu-ray as a Costco exclusive model. The player is priced at $279.99, and as far as we can tell is the same exact player as the Panny DMP-BD60 (but with a free HDMI cable included in the box). We have a feeling this is to reduce the amount of returns from people that hook up their new Blu-ray player with the red-white-yellow composite A/V cables.
Panasonic’s choice to make a Costco (and maybe Sam’s Club) exclusive model number is no surprise, as it keeps price matching retailers like Best Buy happy. Sony did the same thing with their Costco exclusive model BDP-BX1 Blu-ray player last year.
We have just hooked up the DMP-BD605, so look for a unboxing/mini-review as soon as we can get it done.
