Has anyone brought one or know about the Pioneer BDP150 Blu-ray player? Is it any good?

Does it play well all the formats it says it does on connected external hardrives/usb sticks?

Or would be better getting a panasonic BDT220 player?

Yep, bought 3 or 4 of them, all are working perfectly well and I expect they will do for some time to come.
Cheers

Thanks HiDefinition.

I actually bought one on labour day as Smith City had them with a 40% discount.

$180 for a BDP150 - that's a great price!
