Panasonic DMP-B15K

 

The Panasonic DMP-BD15K is the first portable Blu-ray player, and at first it's easy to write it off as useless since much of Blu-ray's visual superiority doesn't translate on its 8.9-inch screen. But that's missing the point. If you're a home theater...

Lets you watch your Blu-ray collection on-the-go; HDMI output for use as a standalone player; full access to YouTube and Picasa if connected via Ethernet; comes with cigarette lighter adapter and headrest mount for car use

Very expensive, with Blu-ray-equipped laptops available at similar prices; bulky design; short 2.5 hour battery life; small screen limits the capability to see the full detail of Blu-ray; can't output a standard 1080p signal; less reliable playback...

The Panasonic DMP-B15 is the world's first portable Blu-ray player that can function as a standalone player, too, but ultimately it has too many caveats and costs too much.

Product Specifications

The DMP-B15 stands upright like a photo stand for use, and folds compactly for carrying. The 8.9 inch wide SVGA screen lets you view movies with much higher image quality than standard definition portable DVD players. With the DMP-B15, your enjoyment of Blu-ray Disc movies or various types of SD Memory Card content extends from the living room to your bedroom. You can play AVCHD and MPEG 2 images recorded with a camcorder, and DivX content that you've downloaded from the internet, by using SD Memory Cards, DVDs, or CDs. Simply mount the included Headrest Mounting Bracket to the back of the seat to turn the entire back seat into a theater. This is just the kind of entertainment you need for long drives. The DMP-B15 provides 1080/24p output. It reproduces movie images from a Blu-ray Disc in their original 24p form, with no need for conversion. You see movies in the same format used in movie theaters. By connecting to an HD Audio compatible 7.1-channel AV receiver with an HDMI cable, you can listen to Blu-ray Disc 7.1-channel surround sound. VIERA CAST and BD-Live compatibility let you access the internet with a LAN connection and enjoy contents like YouTube as well as BD-Live materials.
