Panasonic BD-60 Blu-ray Player


Panasonic has a long tradition of producing well regarded, competitively priced disc players. Many of their DVD players were among the best at producing a 480p image, and at a very reasonable cost. Panasonic was at it again with Blu-ray, being one of...

The Panasonic BD-60 is a well designed, good performing Blu-ray player that is trying to stand out in the crowded field of entry level Blu-ray players. With a compact design, good video and audio performance, added Internet content, and a well designed...

Panasonic DMP-BD60


Panasonic's DMP-BD60 ($299.95 list), the successor to the company's previous entry-level player, the DMP-BD35, adds YouTube streaming, Picasa Web Album access, and some other multimedia features. But otherwise, its price, performance, styling, and even...

1080p24 DVD upconversion. Google-based online multimedia features. Quick-start feature improves start-up time. Very energy efficient

1080p24 DVD upconversion feature needs to be manually activated. Optional memory required for BD-Live support. Quick-start feature increases standby power consumption

The Panasonic DMP-BD60 adds YouTube and Picasa Web Albums to its list of online multimedia abilities, but it's otherwise a clone of its predecessor.

Panasonic DMP-BD60K Blu-Ray Review


Excellent image quality ; Sleek, attractive design

Unhelpful on-screen displays

The Panasonic DMP-BD60K costs a little more than other players, but its superb image quality and intelligent design justify its price.

Panasonic DMP-BD60K


From our perspective, the Panasonic DMP-BD35 was a landmark for the Blu-ray format, as it was the first standalone player we could wholeheartedly recommend, earning the Editors' Choice award. The Panasonic DMP-BD60 is the successor to the DMP-BD35 and...

Excellent image quality with Blu-ray movies; Profile 2.0-compliant; onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio Essential; access to YouTube and Picasa; Amazon On Demand streaming coming in May.

Competitors offer more next-generation features like built-in Wi-Fi, Netflix streaming, and onboard memory; operational speed slow compared with newest players.

The Panasonic DMP-BD60 offers excellent image quality and reliable Blu-ray playback, but it doesn't have as many features as the competition.

Panasonic DMP-BD60K


The DMP-BD60K is an excellent Blu-ray player available at a very reasonable price. And while it doesn't have all of the features offered by some of the competition, the build quality and performance is better than most. If you're ready to take the...

Review: Panasonic DMP-BD60K Blu-ray player


On all counts, the Panasonic DMP-BD60K is a well-made Blu-ray player, and it ranks among the best such devices you can buy today.

Excellent image quality ; Sleek, attractive design

Unhelpful on-screen displays

Panasonic made the DMP-BD60K compact, sleek, and attractive, so it will fit wherever you want to put it. The player's Power and Eject buttons are large and sensibly positioned

Panasonic DMP-BD60K Blu-ray Player Preview


Panasonic's DMP-BD60K Blu-ray player features a solid lineup of features at a fairly reasonable price. It's not going to blow anyone away, but at an MSRP of $199, it doesn't need to. The BD60K does most of what we've come to expect from a low to mid...

Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-ray Player


It seems like just yesterday that I reviewed the DMP-BD35 and DMP-BD55 players (HT, December 2008). But Panasonic spared little time getting its replacements out into the market. This was almost a blink, and you'll miss the window for the DMP-BD35 and...

As I mentioned, the player offers internal decoding to PCM and native bitstream output for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. The internal decoding to PCM is convenient for Bonus View titles since the picture-in-picture audio needs to be mixed with...

Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-ray Player Reviewed


Panasonic has announced two new Profile 2.0 Blu-ray players: the DMP-BD80 and DMP-BD60. The BD60 may be the lower-priced of the two, but it still offers Panasonic's VIERA Cast Web service, which includes Amazon video-on-demand, YouTube, and Picasa....

The DMP-BD60 supports 1080p/24 playback of Blu-ray discs ; The player has internal Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding and can pass these formats in bitstream form over HDMI ; It supports BD-Live Web content and can play picture-in-picture...

The DMP-BD60 lacks 7.1-channel analog audio outputs, so it's not the best choice for someone who owns an older, non-HDMI A/V receiver ; The player lacks internal memory, and Panasonic does not supply an SD card for storage of downloadable BD-Live...

The DMP-BD60 is a well-endowed Profile 2.0 Blu-ray player offered at a competitive price. It has most of the Blu-ray features you need, such as BD-Live Web functionality and onboard high-resolution audio decoding, and adds Panasonic's Viera Cast...
