Panasonic DMP-BD85: Mediocre Images, Annoying Menus

 

Features aren't everything. The Panasonic DMP-BD85 does all that a modern Blu-ray player should do. It plays Blu-ray discs and DVDs, and streams video over the Internet from Netflix, YouTube, and other popular sources. Stick a flash drive into it, and...

Two USB ports ; Excellent Internet video options ; Access to geeky information

Unspectacular image quality ; Ugly and difficult on-screen display

The DMP-BD85 offers only middle-of-the-road image quality and an ugly, confusing menu system, which together make this Blu-ray player a poor value.

Panasonic DMP-BD85K review: Panasonic DMP-BD85K

 

Panasonic DMP-BD85K

Excellent Blu-ray image quality; Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, and YouTube streaming; Wi-Fi capable with included USB dongle; 7.1 analog outputs; plays music, videos, and pictures off a connected USB drive or SD card.

Competing models don't need a dongle for Wi-Fi; sluggish, despite superfast "quick start" mode; selection of streaming sources is on the small side; user interface is outdated and Wi-Fi difficult to setup; not DLNA compliant; no 3D Blu-ray support; no...

Panasonic's DMP-BD85K has great image quality and its 7.1 analog outputs are a nice plus, but it's slow and less featured than competing models.

Panasonic DMP-BD85

 

While Panasonic has considerably improved its Blu-Ray players, the Panasonic DMP-BD85 still has some shortfalls, such as the smaller, less-ergonomic remote and lack of DNLA compatibility. Overall, this device exemplifies advances in Blu-Ray technology,...

Review: Panasonic DMP-BD85 Blu-ray player

 

The DMP-BD85 offers only middle-of-the-road image quality and an ugly, confusing menu system, which together make this Blu-ray player a poor value.

The images that the DMP-BD85 sent to our test HDTV weren't horrible; in fact, they were slightly better than those of our reference player, a Sony PlayStation 3. Ranking slightly better than one of the first Blu-ray players released, however, hardly...

Panasonic DMP-BD85 Blu-ray PlayerReview

 

Panasonic has advanced the audio and video performance of its flagship non-3D Blu-ray player, but where are the improvements to the user interface?

Although I spent a lot of time describing the operational idiosyncrasies of the player, these are relatively easy to get used to over time. Casual users will not need to access the set-up menus often (if at all) and so will most likely never notice...

Panasonic DMP-BD85

 

The Panasonic DMP-BD85 is one of the top players in Panasonic's 2010 blu-ray player lineup. It gets many improvements in speed and features compared with last year's model by including a USB Wi-Fi adapter and adding Netflix and Pandora to its VieraCast...

The DMP-BD85 demonstrates why Panasonic is one of the top brands in blu-ray. It is a superb all round blu-ray player. Video quality is excellent. Panasonic has also for the first time distinguished itself from the rest of the crowd by delivering a...

Panasonic DMP-BD85 Blu-ray player

 

A high-end Panasonic Blu-ray player with Wi-Fi connectivity and 7.1 analog audio

Superb Blu-ray performance, attractive design, lots of connectivity options for audiophiles, Wi-Fi enabled

Sluggish interface, slow BD load times, Wi-Fi setup could be more beginner-friendly

The Panasonic DMP-BD85 is a feature-packed Blu-ray player that boasts great playback performance. Unfortunately, it is slightly let down by its load times and sluggish interface.

Panasonic DMP-BD85 Blu-ray Player

 

The DMP-BD85 reminds us why Panasonic is one of the best names in the Blu-ray business.

Fiddly operating system, Slow disc loading, Needs a USB dongle for Wi-Fi

Panasonic DMP-BD85 review

 

The BD85 takes Panasonic back to the top tier of the Blu-ray wedding cake

It may be on the premium side of budget, but the BD85 is well worth the extra cash
