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.

Performance and Conclusions 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 ).

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 review

 

If I had to recommend just one Blu-ray player for 2012, it would be Panasonic's DMP-BDT220 (about $130 street price). It's in the sweet spot of Panasonic's Blu-ray lineup, with built-in Wi-Fi and an excellent set of streaming-media services, including...

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.

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,...

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-ray 3D Player

 

For this review, Panasonic sent me the DMP-BDT220 Blu-ray 3D player. This is the follow-up to the DMP-BDT210 I reviewed last year (Home Theater, August 2011), which received our Top Pick recommendation. The two really aren't that different. You still...

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...

Panasonic DMP-BDT220

 

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...

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 review

 

Panasonic's new sliver of Blu-ray does it all for less than £200

Excellent picture ; Great user interface ; Good IPTV features ; Comprehensive file playback

Messy network streaming ; No Super Audio CD

The days when a Blu-ray player merely spun discs and made tentative contact with the internet via BD Live, are long gone.
