Panasonic DMP-BD45

 

The Panasonic DMP-BD45 is one of four new blu-ray players unveiled by Panasonic recently. The DMP-BD45 is the entry level model and comes equipped with a basic feature list at an attractive price.

Although the Panasonic DMP-BD45 is positioned as a basic entry level player, its video and audio performance is not something to be scoffed at. Although it did not break new grounds in performance, it sure did as an eco-friendly player. Furthermore,...

The Panasonic DMP-BD45 is a bare-bones Blu-ray player aimed at quality-conscious consumers who don't care about bells and whistles. As the entry-level...

Excellent 1080p video playback, attractive design

Profile 1.1, limited features and connectivity, fiddly remote control

The Panasonic DMP-BD45 is a basic Blu-ray player that concentrates on doing one thing well: playing Blu-ray movies. If you want to access BD-Live content and other online features, you will need to look elsewhere.

A Profile 1.1 Blu-ray player that offers great picture prowess

Picture quality ; Ease of use

No BD Live support ; Discs are incredibly slow to load

Although this is a budget version of the higher-end Panasonic Blu-ray players, it still packs the latest picture processing tech

Picture quality; Ease of use

No BD Live support; Discs are incredibly slow to load

The picture also boasts mesmerising depth, thanks largely to the punchiness and solidity of blacks. Colours neither feel washed out nor garish, testament to the deck's precise colour processing. A routine run-through of test patterns on the Silicon...

The Panasonic DMP-BD45 brings the company's Blu-ray players into the realm of affordability.

Very slim, Excellent picture quality, Crisp hi-def pictures

No Ethernet terminal, Slow to load discs, Lack of BD Live functionality

Panasonic DMP-BD45 review

 

We like the Panasonic DMP-BD45, but, despite its good performance, its lack of Profile 2.0 support is inexcusable and the price is far too high

Attractive styling ; Good remote control ; Excellent picture quality

Too expensive by far ; Lacks extra features

Conclusion As much as we like the Panasonic DMP-BD45, there's not much that would make us recommend it. Even if you buy it for £150, we think that's still £50 too expensive. Without support for Profile 2.0 and Internet features like YouTube access,...

Complete waste of money: Bought 2 of these for bedroom. Player #1 died after 1 month- will now only read standard dvds (even after firmware update). Player #2 did the same thing after 2 months. On both players, the blu-ray laser died & we were...

Good picture, Fast load-time, Compact design

Sub-par audio, Blu-ray laser dies after a few months, Bad tech support from Panasonic
