Panasonic DMP-BDT500 review

 

Panasonic's flagship player delivers a truly captivating performance

Excellent picture ; strong sound ; smooth motion handling ; great with 3D and upscaling

The remote control’s touch pad can be a bit awkward to use

Panasonic has done it again – this player delivers a truly captivating performance

Panasonic DMP-BDT500 Blu-ray player review

 

A Blu-ray player with a touch of old-school panache. If only it came with a retro remote...

Sublime video quality; superior audio over HDMI; excellent analogue audio performance; good file support from USB

Infuriating touchpad controller; unnecessary multi-user modes; complicated networking mapping requirement

Panasonic DMP-BDT500 review

 

Flagship Blu-ray kit used to cost a fortune: five years ago, Panasonic's top-spec DMP-BD10 cost a formidable £1300. 2012's premium Panny is a teensy bit more affordable, yet its £275 tag is still steep when a perfectly acceptable Blu-ray player can now...

Fantastic picture in both 2D and 3D, Commanding sound

It's far from sleek, Unwieldy, frustrating remote control

Few will appreciate its multitude of audio-enhancing features, but this is still a fantastic Blu-ray player

Panasonic DMP-BDT500 Blu-ray 3D Player

 

Spectacular video performance at a budget price point, but not the best choice for true audiophiles.

High-resolution audio chops; Reference-quality 2D and 3D Blu-ray playback; Streaming-video paradise

No support for SACD, DVD-Audio, or DSD formats
