5.0 out of 5 stars It is the best one for the money 3 July 2010
By A. Stevens TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
This is the 2010 model, an improved version of the earlier BD60, which in itself was a benchmark leader. Coupled with a Panasonic home theatre and full HD plasma, this blu-ray absolutely excels. This was purchased to replace a Sony BDP360, which was to be fair, also pretty good.
Some reviewers have complained of slow start up times. Well, there is a solution. Connect to the web using ethernet cable and allow the unit to perform a firmware upgrade (if it is needed). You can also make use of the webcast functions whilst you are connected. So start up time is now quick, even with the "Quick Start" disabled.
Colour, sound and picture quality top notch. Set up can be fully auto or if you feel clever, there is an amazing set up menu if you prefer to do it manually. Check out some of the reviews from professional film buffs, you'll find that there are currently two hot contenders for the top spot for this kind of money........this model and one from LG.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great blu ray from Panasonic 11 Aug 2010
Once again Panasonic have produced another great blu ray player. The quality of the blu ray picture is 1st class and the quality of upscaled dvd is pretty good too. Faster loading times of blu ray discs than other machines I've owned, but still not perfect, but then again there is a large amount of data on a blu ray disc. The mechanism is very quiet too when playing a disc.
Extra features include wireless networking, but has to be fitted with Panasonic's own wireless dongle at 80 a shot, stick to the ethernet connection for your fixes of bd live material and the viera cast facility. An sd card slot which will play your camcorder footage, stills and other material you may put on your card and a usb socket next to the sd card slot neatly hidden under a flap on the front of the machine.
On the rear of the machine are a single hdmi socket for connection to your tv or av amp, essential to view hd content on your tv, an ethernet port, and a digital audio output to carry your sound to your surround sound amp.
Region 2 dvd playback and region B blu ray playback out of the box but the machine can be hacked to play dvds from all regions(using a learning remote and codes published on the web) but not multi region blu ray playback.
To summarise, great picture and sound, good connections and extra features such as sd card playback and usb socket, wireless capability, quality brand and a price that I haven't seen lower. See [...] for further information.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing - underwhelmed by Blu Ray 12 Jun 2010
I bought this player on the recommendation of a few friends of mine who work in Richer Sounds. They said they thought it was the best player in the shop (picture wise), and start up wise it was very quick.

It came with a quick start sticker on it saying 0.5 secs - I'm not sure this is true, but so far when I've used it I've put the disc in first, switched on the TV and by the time the TV is on the right channel the Blu Ray menu is up and the film is waiting to play.

The dvd upscaling is a little dissapointing - to be honest I felt they looked better on my old DVD player, but Blu Rays do look good. Not as incredible as I'd hoped, but pretty good. Can I see a marked improvement over DVD? Yes but not a huge difference. Also sometimes it looks a little pixelated and digital for my tastes, but that might be the new 50'' TV I have too, which has yet to be broken in properly.

That makes it kind of hard for me to give a decent, honest review I suppose as I can't compare picture quality to what I had before, as my whole set-ups new. But all in all, I don't have any major grumbles about this player - I just was expecting Blu Ray to be a bit more stunning. Is it worth the extra money for Blu Ray disks? I don't know - They aint cheap and I'm not sure what I've seen convinces me they're worth the extra money when DVDs are so cheap nowdays.

I'd do some more research before buying this player, there might be something better out there. LG for instance are meant to be excellent, and I should have perhaps gone for one of them wich was my second choice and my friends joint 1st recommendation - but this player's OK.

4.0 out of 5 stars What no BBC iPlayer? 22 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase
I've been really disappointed to find out that BBC iPlayer isn't included in the BD Live package, in fact almost nothing is. There's YouTube but other than that it's just a picture viewer.
The only reason for having the network card appears to be for Firmware updates.

If I'd known there was no BBC iPlayer (and no way of adding it) I'd have bought the cheaper version without internet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent player 3 Aug 2010
By A. I. Mackenzie VINE VOICE
I've paired this with a Panasonic TX-L32S20B 32-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p 100Hz LCD TV with Freeview HD, and so far the picture is really excellent. The player can start up the TV from standby, and gives a really good picture.

One of the first films we watched was Avatar (DVD + Blu-ray) [2009], which was outstanding. Clear picture and good sound. The upscaling from DVD is good, but if you look closely you can see some things pixellate.

The player has a good remote with the controls laid out well and is easy to use, you need to use an HDMI cable to get the best out of this and it's probably worth noting that there's no SCART socket on this player - which means I couldn't have connected this to my old TV.

The BD live functionality looks a bit gimmicky to me, the firmware updates are handy and it's worth thinking how you'll network the player (wireless dongle is expensive - you might be better with home plugs). You go for the BD45 if you don't think networking is a priority.

Overall excellent player, easy to set up particularly with a Panasonic TV and really get the most out of a Full HD TV.
