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,...

It works.

Great for the price!

 

The bottom line is: if you don't expect to much then you won't be dissapointed. You cannot expect this player to have all the features of the higher priced models. If you just want a simple player to play blu-rays and dvds then you won't be dissapointed.

This plays Blu-rays as expected

None for the price

Perfect for the price

 

Super quick shipping. Came with OEM packaging only, no outerbox for protection. Just UPS label slapped on the side.

Easy set up and use. Not complicated in any way. No extras to disctract you or break down

None

Very pleased

 

I am very pleased with this player. I bought it to replace a Sony that was driving me crazy. This one installed in seconds using the same setup as the old one and it is fast. You push the button to eject a disc and out it comes, no waiting around, you...
