Panasonic DMP-BD30 review

 

Panasonic's budget Blu-ray player delivers the latest hi-def spec for a reasonable price. Is it a better buy than the PS3?

A highly capable performer and the best-value Blu-ray player so far

Panasonic DMP-BD30 review

 

The first Profile 1.1 Blu-ray player in the UK

Excellent video performance ; Great HD audio support ; Slimline design ; Profile 1.1

Low-level fan noise ; Dolby Digital 5.1 when the PIP secondary Audio mode is engaged

The first Blu-ray player worth splashing your card-earned cash on. You won't be disappointed.

Panasonic DMP-BD30 review

 

Panasonic's DMP-BD30 was one of the first Blu-ray Disc players to support BonusView, the Blu-ray specification for watching picture-in-picture content.

Sadly, the plethora of extras can't make up for the Panasonic DMP-BD30's relatively lacklustre image and sound quality.

Panasonic DMP-BD30K review

 

Editors' note, June 9, 2008: The rating of this player has been changed since its initial publication to reflect changes in the marketplace.

Excellent picture quality on Blu-ray discs; 1080p output at 24 frames per second; DVD upconversion up to 1080p; HDMI 1.3b output; can output Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio in bitstream format; first Blu-ray Profile 1.1 player; SD card slot can...

No built-in decoding for high-resolution audio formats; no Ethernet jack for firmware upgrades or future interactive content.

The Panasonic DMP-BD30 offers excellent video quality and is Blu-ray Profile 1.1 compliant, but those who want high-resolution audio will need a cutting-edge AV receiver.

Panasonic DMP-BD30

 

The DMP-BD30 is slim and sleek, and conceals a nice surprise under a flap on the fascia - an SD card slot that lets you play AVCHD video and JPEG photo files. The unit also supports MP3 and DivX stored on CD and DVD, plus it even plays recordable...

Supports picture-in-picture, superb hi-def pictures, lots of features

No hi-res audio decoding, some audio mixing issues

Panasonic's DMP-BD30 entry-level Blu-ray player offers fantastic video quality, but isn't able to decode high-resolution audio without a dedicated AV receiver.

Great picture quality, DVD up-conversion to 1080p

No Ethernet, no built-in high-quality audio decoding

Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu-ray Disc Player

 

BonusView Blu-ray player responds speedily, but that doesn't make up for disappointing image and sound.

Fast response time ; SD Card slot for AVCHD playback

Image and audio quality mediocre

Sadly, extras like these don't make up for this model's relatively lackluster image and sound quality
