Panasonic DMP-BD 80


Superb 24p movie picture., Excellent DVD playback., Great multimedia functions., Accesses YouTube videos online., Low power-consumption., Decodes all HD audio formats.

Disc drive is too loud., DVD "Film" mode must be activated manually each time.

Multimedia Like in the player's DMP-BD 60 predecessor, the "Viera Cast" function is one of the BD 80's top highlights. Via this internet service, the Panasonic provides access to YouTube videos, Picasa photo albums, news tickers, and sports results -...

Like its entry-level sibling (the DMP-BD60), the step-up DMP-BD80 is a Profile 2.0 player that includes the VIERA Cast Web service, with Amazon VOD and YouTube. This model adds Divx playback and multichannel analog audio outputs....

The player lacks internal memory, and Panasonic does not supply an SD card for storage of downloadable BD-Live content ; The player does not support wireless connectivity to your home network

The DMP-BD80 is a full-featured Profile 2.0 Blu-ray player that adds Viera Cast to view streamed movie/TV content. This model is competitively priced with other players that offer some type of streaming VOD function, but it lacks the wireless network...

Building on last year's popular top of the line Blu-ray player, Panasonic adds VIERA Cast for online content access. Is it enough to slay the stiff stand-alone competition?

Combining the excellent video and audio performance of its predecessor, the DMP-BD55, with the convenience of online content access and a USB port, the DMP-BD80 is sure to be another hot seller for Panasonic.

Panasonic DMP-BD80 Blu-ray player


A high-end Blu-ray player with DivX playback and 7.1 analog audio output

Good multimedia playback, access to YouTube, superb 1080p video quality and upscaling

Start-up times could be a little faster, offers little to distinguish itself from the DMP-BD60

The Panasonic DMP-BD80 is a top brass Blu-ray player with a respectable brace of bells and whistles. If you specifically require 7.1ch audio and DivX playback, it's pretty hard to beat. Otherwise, plump for its cheaper stable mate, the DMP-BD60.

Panasonic's top-of-the-range Blu-ray player adds YouTube 'net streaming to its already impressive arsenal

Superb, detailed pictures ; YouTube connectivity is a lot of fun ; Multimedia playback

Sluggish loading times ; Uninspired design

A fantastic Blu-ray deck that sets the standard for all other manufacturers to follow. Perfect pictures and packed full of features

Panasonic DMP-BD80 review


The Panasonic DMP-BD80 is a high-end Blu-ray player packed with oodles of features. Some of the standouts include inbuilt Picasa/YouTube browsing, an SD card slot for easy media file access, 7.1ch surround sound, an optical digital audio output and...

In conclusion, there is a lot to like about the Panasonic DMP-BD80. While it doesn't lift itself head-and-shoulders above the DMP-BD60, the extras that are on offer make for a better overall product.

Panasonic's DMP-BD80 looks good on paper, but can it hold its own against the Blu-ray big hitters?

A worthy contender, but the BD80 is edged out against the very best in its class

Panasonic DMP-BD80 review


Still a good player, but newer rivals have overtaken it

Comprehensive spec including multichannel analogue outputs ; colourful, detailed pictures ; clean and crisp sound quality

Lacks extra detail and dynamism sonically ; black level detail bettered elsewhere

The world of home cinema waits for no manufacturer – this Panasonic remains a fine prospect but has been knocked off the very top
