Panasonic DMP-BD85: Mediocre Images, Annoying Menus

 

Features aren't everything. The Panasonic DMP-BD85 does all that a modern Blu-ray player should do. It plays Blu-ray discs and DVDs, and streams video over the Internet from Netflix, YouTube, and other popular sources. Stick a flash drive into it, and...

Two USB ports ; Excellent Internet video options ; Access to geeky information

Unspectacular image quality ; Ugly and difficult on-screen display

The DMP-BD85 offers only middle-of-the-road image quality and an ugly, confusing menu system, which together make this Blu-ray player a poor value.

Panasonic DMP-BD85K

 

Panasonic's DMP-BD85K has great image quality and its 7.1 analog outputs are a nice plus, but it's slow and less featured than competing models.

Excellent Blu-ray image quality; Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, and YouTube streaming; Wi-Fi capable with included USB dongle; 7.1 analog outputs; plays music, videos, and pictures off a connected USB drive or SD card.

Competing models don't need a dongle for Wi-Fi; sluggish, despite superfast "quick start" mode; selection of streaming sources is on the small side; user interface is outdated and Wi-Fi difficult to setup; not DLNA compliant; no 3D Blu-ray support; no...

Review: Panasonic DMP-BD85 Blu-ray player

 

The DMP-BD85 offers only middle-of-the-road image quality and an ugly, confusing menu system, which together make this Blu-ray player a poor value.

The images that the DMP-BD85 sent to our test HDTV weren't horrible; in fact, they were slightly better than those of our reference player, a Sony PlayStation 3. Ranking slightly better than one of the first Blu-ray players released, however, hardly...

Panasonic DMP-BD85 Blu-ray PlayerReview

 

Panasonic has advanced the audio and video performance of its flagship non-3D Blu-ray player, but where are the improvements to the user interface?

Although I spent a lot of time describing the operational idiosyncrasies of the player, these are relatively easy to get used to over time. Casual users will not need to access the set-up menus often (if at all) and so will most likely never notice...

The Panasonic DMP-BD85K made it into the top three of our Blu-ray player reviews for a reason. It is a high-quality, feature-packed and user-friendly Blu-ray DVD player at a reasonable price. This player is compatible with most file formats and helps...

A high-end Panasonic Blu-ray player with Wi-Fi connectivity and 7.1 analog audio

 

The Panasonic DMP-BD85 is a feature-packed Blu-ray player that boasts great playback performance. Unfortunately, it is slightly let down by its load times and sluggish interface.

Superb Blu-ray performance, attractive design, lots of connectivity options for audiophiles, Wi-Fi enabled

Sluggish interface, slow BD load times, Wi-Fi setup could be more beginner-friendly
