Panasonic DMP-BDT500 Blu-ray 3D Player


Spectacular video performance at a budget price point, but not the best choice for true audiophiles.

High-resolution audio chops; Reference-quality 2D and 3D Blu-ray playback; Streaming-video paradise

No support for SACD, DVD-Audio, or DSD formats

Panasonic goes all high-end with this luxury Blu-ray deck.

Picture, sound and build quality ; Excellent feature list ; Intuitive operating system

No DVD-Audio or SACD playback ; Touchpad remote can be frustrating

Panasonic DMP-BDT500 review


Panasonic's flagship player delivers a truly captivating performance

Excellent picture ; strong sound ; smooth motion handling ; great with 3D and upscaling

The remote control’s touch pad can be a bit awkward to use

Panasonic has done it again – this player delivers a truly captivating performance

Panasonic DMP-BDT500 Blu-ray player review


A Blu-ray player with a touch of old-school panache. If only it came with a retro remote...

Sublime video quality; superior audio over HDMI; excellent analogue audio performance; good file support from USB

Infuriating touchpad controller; unnecessary multi-user modes; complicated networking mapping requirement

Panasonic DMP-BDT500 review


Flagship Blu-ray kit used to cost a fortune: five years ago, Panasonic's top-spec DMP-BD10 cost a formidable £1300. 2012's premium Panny is a teensy bit more affordable, yet its £275 tag is still steep when a perfectly acceptable Blu-ray player can now...

Fantastic picture in both 2D and 3D, Commanding sound

It's far from sleek, Unwieldy, frustrating remote control

When putting together a home cinema system, it's all too easy to overlook the Blu-ray player. After all, isn't picture quality mostly dictated by your TV and sound quality by your amplifier? Contrary to popular belief, a high-quality Blu-ray player can...

Few will appreciate its multitude of audio-enhancing features, but this is still a fantastic Blu-ray player

Panasonic DMP-BDT500


Current Theater:

Sleek, modern styling; Sturdy Construction; Built-in Wi-Fi; Analog/Digital connections; Fast load time

Touchpad can be annoying after a while; Wi-Fi connection slower than my 40GB PS3

Panasonic DMP-BDT500


I have had 6 panasonic players. All of which have functioned very well. The design and output of this unit is exceptional. I have not had as much time to play with this unit as much as I would like but each time adds more joy and ease of use. The use...

Ease of use. The remote has a touchpad which is very sensitive and unique. The 3-d is exceptional along with all others as expected. Has both wifi and ethernet. Very compatible with my Mitsu 82" DLP

Compared to other Panasonic players it takes a little amount of time to get used to the functioning of the player. A minor drawback
