Panasonic DMP-BDT230

 

In 2012, the Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-ray player won an Editor's Choice Award, and now with a couple of cosmetic changes and a few more features like Miracast , the BDT230 appears in its place.

The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 offers excellent Blu-ray and DVD image quality. Its selection of streaming services is good and it's a relatively inexpensive player.

Advertising is built in to several of the menus, including undefeatable video ads in the app marketplace. The menu system can be a little perplexing at first and it's easy to hit the Netflix button on the remote by accident. The YouTube app lags.

The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 is a mostly solid Blu-ray player, except it serves up obnoxious ads in its onscreen interface.
