Panasonic DMP-BDT230 Blu-ray Player


I'm unfortunately very disappointed in the Panasonic DMP-BDT230. Even if it had perfect playback and incredible streaming content, I'd still be hard pressed to recommend it based on the innovation of advertising that they have built in. Other vendors...

Panasonic DMP-BDT230


The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 Blu-ray player packs great performance and tons of features into an affordable package.

Lots of features. Fast performance. Inexpensive

Sluggish, uninspiring menu system

Panasonic's DMP-BDT230 Blu-ray player packs a lot of compelling features into an inexpensive package. It's quick, full of useful features (including built-in Miracast support), and handles video processing with ease, all with a $129.99 (direct) price...

Panasonic DMP-BDT230 review


Awesome 2D, 3D and upscaling – and a Netflix shortcut – in a quirky yet speedy user interface

Excellent 2D & 3D images ; Great value price ; Rich colours ; SD Card slot ; Netflix shortcut button

Uses 2012 smart TV GUI ; No Lovefilm app ; Lacks MyHomeScreen ; No virtual remote apps

In the world of Blu-ray players you get what you pay for, and if you're after the very best in Full HD detail, Panasonic is definitely the brand to head for. In terms of picture quality from all sources, there are no better choices than the DMP-BDT230.

Panasonic DMP-BDT230


The Panasonic might not be the smartest player around, but it is one of the best-performing: great picture and accomplished sound

Excellent Blu-ray and DVD picture ; Solid, powerful sound ; Rich, natural colours

Lacks catch-up TV content

Panasonic DMP-BDT230


Effecive, faithful playback, Decent smart features, The price is right

Can be a bit noisy, Netflix app a bit slow

The prismatic styling of the BDT230 somewhat sets it apart, looks wise, from the competition but it is still, at heart, just another black box. Connectivity options should be sufficient for most with a single HDMI, digital audio out plus USB and Wi-Fi...

Same problem but with DMP-BDT330GN


Yes, it is prone to freezing. as recently as yesterday with a brand new DVD. Yes I need to unplug it. I do that anyway as it gets very hot when off, but left with the power cord in. I bought it as Choice recommended the model. Hmmm. Does generate a...

Consumer review by: Reviewer351 (



In this day & age, why cant major appliance manufacturers bring out something reliable drawing on decades of experience on what works and what doesnt. Well it seems that everything you buy these days whether it be a $2000 TV or $130 Bluray player, it...

It plays Blu-rays fine when it works properly

It freezes & needs power cord removed & plugged back in when not working properly.

Good at playing disks, bad at doing other things


It's a competent Blu-Ray player. If that's all you want it to do. But I wanted more. I bought it for its Miracast feature. Miracast allows you to wirelessly transmit the screen of your smartphone to your big television. Not many smartphones can do...

Inexpensive, has both SD card and USB slots, competent Blu-Ray player

Displays advertisements in menus. Miracast doesn't work with Google Nexus 5 phone.
