I've owned this blu-ray player since it was introduced and I've been getting more and more unhappy with it. Most recently , on November 18th '08, I went to play a First Look Pictures blu-ray movie and the disc wasn't recognized. I wrote Panasonic about...

Great picture

Firmware updates not keeping up with new blu-rays

After hours and hours of research I finally found a Blu-Ray player that fit my needs. The built in decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD High Resolution is probably the main reason for the purchase. I have a Denon AVR-3805 and I love the receiver and I...

Excellent Image and Sound Quality

Remote Control, Load Times

Panasonic DMP-BD10A


I think this is a great player, sound comes through very well, picture is awesome. I think that remote is the biggest drawback, but you get used to it quickly. I am not bothered by having to get up and open the dvd player before changing the dvd, I...

Remote and lack of automatic opening

Awesome BD player


Cost about a grand when we got it in 2006.

Got the player christmas 2006 and its worked great ever since. Connected to a sony 30"" (CRT) 1080i hdtv via HMDI and the picture is amazing. Looks great, stays cool. Its got lots of outputs... whatever you need pretty much. We use hdmi and an optical...

Rather slow with menus and stuff, but i guess this is a common problem for bd players. Also, the hinged mirror on the front of the box can get a bit annoying (although it does look cool)

Panasonic's DMP-BD10A is their second generation Blu-ray player, and stands as an impressive and highly functional product. The unit has gone a long w...

Great Blu-ray and DVD playback, responsive interface

Design may irritate some users, slightly expensive

It's not the cheapest on the market, but the Panasonic DMP-BD10A should satisfy anyone looking for high quality high definition playback.

Panasonic DMP-BD10A review


When we tested Panasonic's original Blu-ray player, the DMP-BDP10, we were blown away by its hi-def picture and PCM sound quality. This version is physically identical to its predecessor but has been upgraded

Excellent icture and sound ; Good menu screen

Slow to load discs ; Exensive

Stuff magazine


Panasonic's original Blu-ray player is back. But are some small tweaks and a big price drop enough to make it the must-have hi-def disc spinner?

The price drop makes the BD10A alluring, but it still can't compete with rivals from Pioneer and Sony

Excellent picture and sound, Good menu screen

Slow to load discs, Expensive

Stunning images and improved audio can't quite persuade us to part with so much money to join the HD revolution
