Building on last year's popular top of the line Blu-ray player, Panasonic adds VIERA Cast for online content access. Is it enough to slay the stiff stand-alone competition?

Combining the excellent video and audio performance of its predecessor, the DMP-BD55, with the convenience of online content access and a USB port, the DMP-BD80 is sure to be another hot seller for Panasonic.

Panasonic DMP-BD 80

 

The Panasonic DMP-BD 80 is a Blu-ray player released in February 2009. Though it carries a recommended retail price of 392 GBP, the device now sells for around 250 GBP online.

Superb 24p movie picture ; Excellent DVD playback ; Great multimedia functions ; Accesses YouTube videos online ; Low power-consumption ; Decodes all HD audio formats

Disc drive is too loud ; DVD "Film" mode must be activated manually each time

A real do-it-all! The DMP-BD 80 impresses with an almost perfect Blu-ray picture, as well as with modern multimedia and networking extras. Older receivers benefit from internally decoded HD audio, either as PCM or from the analog outputs, in...

Good multimedia playback, access to YouTube, superb 1080p video quality and upscaling

Start-up times could be a little faster, offers little to distinguish itself from the DMP-BD60

The Panasonic DMP-BD80 is a top brass Blu-ray player with a respectable brace of bells and whistles. If you specifically require 7.1ch audio and DivX playback, it's pretty hard to beat. Otherwise, plump for its cheaper stable mate, the DMP-BD60.

The Panasonic DMP-BD80 is a high-end Blu-ray player packed with oodles of features. Some of the standouts include inbuilt Picasa/YouTube browsing, an SD card slot for easy media file access, 7.1ch surround sound, an optical digital audio output and...

In conclusion, there is a lot to like about the Panasonic DMP-BD80. While it doesn't lift itself head-and-shoulders above the DMP-BD60, the extras that are on offer make for a better overall product.

Panasonic's DMP-BD80 looks good on paper, but can it hold its own against the Blu-ray big hitters?

A worthy contender, but the BD80 is edged out against the very best in its class
