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,...

Panasonic DMP-BD45 Blu-ray player

 

Panasonic DMP-BD45 review: a Profile 1.1 Blu-ray player with SD card slot

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.

Panasonic DMP-BD45 review

 

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

A valiant attempt to deliver a Panasonic player for the masses, but we're not sure leaving out BD Live was the way to do it

Panasonic DMP-BD45 Blu-ray Player

 

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

 

While this Panasonic does much right, there's no denying that spending a tiny bit more will get you more bang for your hard-earned buck

Fine build and looks ; rich colours ; good detail and edge definition

Picture lacks subtlety of the best ; sounds insubstantial

Spend a little bit more and you can get a much more talented machine

Panasonic DMP-BD45 review

 

If ever there were a player designed for people who've heard about Blu-ray and like the idea of high-definition movies, but don't know much about the format, the Panasonic DMP-BD45 is it. This Profile 1.1 model offers virtually no special features,...

Attractive styling; good remote control; excellent picture quality.

Too expensive by far; lacks extra features.

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

Consumer review by: Nick's name (tigerdirect.com)

It works.

 

I bought it as an entry-level Blu-Ray player. The load time is quick, just as it says; the tray closes, and within a few seconds the film is playing. I got it for $87 during the holidays, so I figured it was a pretty good deal on a decent player. It...

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
