Panasonic DMP-BD35


Panasonic's DMP-BD35 ($299.95 list), the company's third-generation Blu-ray player, serves up sublime video for high-def-hungry HDTVs while consuming significantly less electricity than its predecessors. The BD35 also includes some features that...

1080p24 DVD upconversion. Energy-efficient. Can automatically update firmware

1080p24 DVD upconversion feature needs to be manually activated. Sluggish menu navigation. BD-Live support requires optional memory card

The energy-efficient Panasonic DMP-BD35 Blu-ray player delivers an admirable picture but handles discs slowly.

Panasonic DMP-BD35


Editors' note (March 30, 2009) : The rating of this player has been changed since its initial publication to reflect changes in the marketplace.

Excellent image quality on Blu-ray Discs; Profile 2.0 compliant; onboard decoding for all high-resolution soundtrack formats, plus bit-stream output.

PlayStation 3 offers much more functionality and faster navigation, although it costs more.

The Panasonic DMP-BD35 represents the best value in standalone Blu-ray players, with excellent image quality, a comprehensive feature set, and a price that's significantly lower than the PS3.

Panasonic DMP-BD35K


Panasonic has done a great job with the DMP-BD35K, and it's easily a best-in-class Blu-ray player. And it's available at a price that won't break the bank. It does an outstanding job of delivering a true HD experience, even with your existing DVDs. ...

Panasonic DMP-BD35 and DMP-BD55 Blu-ray Players

One of the other cool features this player provides is playback of photos, video, and music from the SD card slot. Panasonic includes an SD card with some demo material already on it, and I was surprised at how easy it was to use this function. When I...

Panasonic DMP-BD35 Blu-ray Player Reviewed


At CEDIA 2008, Panasonic showed off two new Blu-ray players, the DMP-BD35 ($300) and the step-up DMP-BD55 ($400). Both players are Profile 2.0, which means they support BonusView/picture-in-picture content and BD-Live Web functionality, and both sport...

Panasonic DMP-BD 35


The Panasonic DMP-BD 35 is a Blu-ray player with an SD-card reader and BD-Live support. Roaming the market since August 2008, the device currently sells from 200 GBP.

Great 24p movie picture ; BD-Live support ; Outstanding DVD playback ; SD-card reader for photos and videos ; Decodes digital, 7.1-channel, HD audio

No analog multichannel output ; Film mode for DVDs must always be set manually

At the time of the DMP-BD 35's introduction (summer 2008), no other player offered so many functions. The first device to top this was actually Panasonic's successor-model, the BD 60, which can, for example, also access YouTube videos. Still, for just...

Panasonic DMP-BD35


The Panasonic DMP-BD35 Blu-ray disc player is a new standard for players. It has plenty of features, has outstanding image quality and is a great alternative for those who want profile 2.0 but don't want a PlayStation 3.

Consumer review by:

No firmware upgrade since April 2010. Waste of money


Waste of money.

It is impossible to identify any pros

Worthless if product firmware upgrades are not available

Consumer review by:

Not as fancy as it may seem. Latest firmware installed.


I dislike this product based on the fact I paid extra money for the BD live features to later find out my player doesn't have enough onboard memory to enjoy some of the bd live features. I must now upgrade to a larger unit, and hope it does what the...

Slim, plays everything I've thrown at it

I paid a lot for this player since it had BD Live, and seemed fully loaded with everything I'd want at the time it was out. I've tried some of the BD live features on blu-rays and get told I can't use them because my player has insufficient memory

Product Specifications

The high-quality image and sound technologies found in the BD35 is incorporated in the UniPhier chip. UniPhier is a Panasonic-created system LSI developed by applying 45-nanometer processing to a consumer product - a world's first. This single-chip integration technology also contributes greatly to the BD35's world's slimmest height of 49mm. The BD35 features BD-Live compatibility which enables users to connect to the Internet to download images, subtitles and other data, and take part in interactive activities and multi-player games linked to bonus cinema content found on Blu-ray discs. Simply insert the SD card into the DMP-BD35 and it plays AVCHD-format video images or JPEG stills in full 1920 x 1080 resolution on your flat panel HDTV. The DMP-BD35 can also play slide shows, complete with background music.
