Pros: Blu-Ray, DVDs, CDs, 3D Blu-Ray

Cons: Wired Wifi, Internet interface

I purchased my Panasonic DMP-BDT110 3D Blu-Ray Disc Player at Best Buy in June 2011 for $65.00. It was displayed on a shelf that had never been connected to a display. The newer models had come out the next year. It is great with my LG D2342P Passive 3D Monitor. (To be honest, I wished I had a Benq 519W or MW1070 3D Projector. I love big screen movies on a big screen!) The 3D features on the player are great for my monitor. The 2D-3D Conversion settings are fun to play with but lose their appeal upgrading DVDs and 2D Blu-Rays to pseudo 3D quickly. (I found using DVDs enhanced for 16:9 TVs to be better for the 2D-3D Conversion. Normal DVD and Blu-Ray discs work very well on the player. Video quality is superb for Blu-Ray. Upgrading DVDs to near 24p video quality is very close with a few picture modifications. The internet apps I haven't use. I have a laptop so I don't need an internet app on my Blu-Ray Player. I haven't upgraded the players software since I first bought it from Best Buy. All the 3D Blu-Rays I play on it work great Avatar, Titanic, Ghosts of the Abyss, Despicable Me and MegaMind are the 3D Blu-Rays I own. For Now!!! Stay tuned to my Youtube Channel Paul Tweed for my video review I hope to upload soon.

Pros: Trim profile, 2D-3D, Great remote, Easy setup, Has Wi-Fi Ready Smart features, Plays most standard A.V. formats, DNLA, USB, Intuitive to use GUI

Cons: Non-integrated Wi-Fi, No <<, >>, or chapter skip buttons on front panel

With it's ultra trim profile the DMP-BDT110 easily fits in any standard rack and even on short depth shelves. The remote control, like most by Panasonic is easy to read with great shortcut buttons, (e.g. Viera Cast, Netflix, and Home), which make the remote easy to use. For those with more than one Panasonic DVD player/recorder in their stack the remote can be programmed to a second set of IR codes to enable independent remote control for each unit. For the non-videophile consumer, the BDT110 is a well designed, nicely put together, low priced 3D, Smart (Ethernet or Wi-Fi w/adapter) player which is hard to beat in it's price range. Other similar BD-Players by Panasonic's major competitors feel cheap by comparison.

For it's price range it has a terrific 192kHz/24bit Audio D/A Converter. There are both front and rear USB 2.0 ports and an SD card slot. The BDT110 can play all standard and many other video formats. It can decode 1080/24p Playback and supports Deep Color, x.v.Color™, Dolby® Digital Plus/ Dolby® TrueHD (5.1ch) as well as DTS™-HD Master Audio Essential/ DTS™-HD High Resolution Audio. It goes without saying that there is an HDMI digital audio/video output along with a component video output. The player also one digital audio Toslink (fiber optic) output and an analog 2 channel output. There is a LAN ethernet input while a separate communication port allows for either a Wi-Fi adapter or SKYPE camera. The BDT110 also supports BD-Live, but does anyone really use this feature?

Pros: My DMP-BDT110 is connected via HDMI directly to my 65" DLP. The video and audio output look and sound marvelous and meet my more needy, audiophile expectations. The device is quiet and responsive. This ultra-trim player with its hidden disc drawer feels well made and looks great on the shelf. The GUI is intuitive and easy to navigate. There are plenty of menu driven video and audio controls for those of us who wish to tweak the settings to our unique desires. The firmware is upgradable and currently supports all the latest standard audio and video codecs. In terms of performance there really isn't anything i can complain about considering the consumer space which this unit occupies. In my opinion the DMP-BDT110 easily dominates the under $400 BD player arena in design and performance.

Cons: The Wi-Fi is not integrated and requires an expensive adapter. I'm lucky enough to have an ethernet port behind my rack. For movie discs created on a PC one might find that while the BDT110 is perhaps a bit faster in loading than some of its close competitors, the delay between inserting a DVD to loading, booting and playing a homemade movie is still longer than I would prefer. The trim, minimalist look with it's fold down front door is indeed beautiful, but the lack of a rewind and fast forward button on the front of the player is at times annoying. While this is a nit, there are also no chapter skip (fwd or back) buttons on the face. These features may only be accomplished by using the well adorned remote. I still like full controls on the face of my AV devices. I also find myself hitting the top mounted, open/close button by accident which is an annoying inconvenience. One last minor nit - the player is not deep enough to put most other rack components on its top surface. However this last nit can also be thought of as a benefit for those with simple systems who prefer a minimalist, clean look to our entertainment systems.

None of the units detractors which I have listed above have in any way diminished my highly positive view of the DMP-BDT110's ability to perform an above average job in both video and audio reproduction. For the mid CE market it is my belief that Panasonic has yet again created another top notch player to join the long list of excellent Panasonic DVD players and recorders.

Pros: Fast, great picture quality, affordable

Cons: Sub-par remote

The blu-ray video and sound are excellent. Not one single complaint. Fast load times, especially with quick start. Passes all codecs to my onkyo receiver, no problem.

  • ~$150 range Full HD 3D blu-ray player with updatable firmware and a robust internet suite for streaming (semi-future proof)

  • Boots up fast (about .5 second when the stand-by mode is on) and load fast (always less than 30 seconds for any Blu-ray I've thrown at it)

  • Small form factor actually can fit right under your TV when on a stand

  • Avatar Blu-Ray rebate (Paid for the player by selling it on Amazon)

  • There are no frills: no "touchless sensor", no wi-fi built in (you'll want to use ethernet for a faster connection anyway), its design doesn't make a fashion statement


Cons:

  • Remote control could be better
