Panasonic DMP-BDT220

 

The Panasonic DMP-BDT220 is a fast, full-featured Blu-ray player with a pleasantly low price.

Fast. Great video processing. Built-in Wi-Fi. Supports 3D

Clunky remote. Menu system needs manual tweaking

The BDT220 is pretty speedy, averaging 24.8 seconds to load a non-BD-Live disc (Ralph Bakshi's Wizards), and 22.3 seconds for a BD-Live disc (The Sound of Music 45th Anniversary Edition).

The Panasonic DMP-BDT220 has built-in Wi-Fi, 3D compatibility, and the Viera Connect suite of streaming-media services, which includes Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant, Pandora, and Vudu. The user interface for the streaming-media apps is...

Viera Connect doesn't support any subscription music services (like MOG, Rdio, or Spotify) nor does it have Flixster for UltraViolet support. The DMP-BDT220 also doesn't play back DivX or Xvid files.

The Panasonic DMP-BDT220 is the best Blu-ray value of 2012, with built-in Wi-Fi, tons of streaming-media apps, 3D compatibility, and a simple user interface.

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-ray 3D PlayerReview

 

Who needs a big budget? This insanely affordable 3D-capable player packs a nice little punch.

When we review products, we try to be as objective as possible. In other words, we like to call out the good and the bad. However, I found myself really stretching to come up with "Turns Offs" for the DMP-BDT220. Is it the greatest Blu-ray 3D player...

It will be interesting to see where the Blu-ray player market goes in the next few years. We reached a point of diminishing returns on the newer lines of players. The Bluray spec hasn't changed since the adoption of 3D, so there's nothing new to add,...

Blu-ray players are all the rage now for home entertainment systems and the Panasonic DMP-BDT220 hopes to get in on the action. It has a great suite of streaming media services, built-in Wi-Fi and an awesome, easy-to-use user interface. With little...

3D technologies in TVs already made the splash back in 2010 and consumers are slowly adopting as the number of 3D-enabled content increases. While 3D-enabled HDTVs offer plenty of features on their own like 2D to 3D conversion and support for viewing...

The Panasonic DMP-BDT220 is a significant upgrade over the previous model but it might not be a worthy upgrade if you just need a simple Blu-ray player for enjoying 3D content. But if you haven’t purchased a 3D Blu-ray player yet, this new system...

Consumer review by:

"Due to problems with Netflix I had to give a low score."

 

Good player except for netflix.

Plays BlueRay well

Ongoing problems with netflix.

Consumer review by:

"No issues in a year"

 

I purchased this Blu Ray due to reviews last year at this time. It has run solid for the past year. To harp on the simplicity of the menu system, my then 4 year old, now 5 year old, can get to Netflix streaming and operate a disk without asking for any...

Very easy to use.

Netflix menu interface is slow and tedious.

Consumer review by:

"Firmware needs major improvements!"

 

I bought this player because of cnet's review, and now i wish i hadn't.

ID looks great!

Streaming services all have issues and lack flexibility in control interface
