Panasonic DP-UB820 Ultra HD Blu-ray Player Review

 

Panasonic's UHD Blu-ray player offers reference-level video performance and also sets a new bar for HDR playback with both HDR flat-panel TVs and projectors. This is a superior player in every way and although with not quite the build quality of the...

Reference-level video performance; In-player tone mapping for HDR and conversion to SDR; Multichannel analog output

Image enhancement options can be overwhelming; Setup not always intuitive; No 4K/HDR streaming support

Panasonic DP-UB820 4K Blu-ray player Review

 

The DP-UB820 4K Blu-ray player represents the middle-ground in Panasonic's 2019 Blu-ray range, sitting between the range-topping DP-UB9000 and budget DP-UB420, offering Dolby Vision Blu-ray support without the premium price tag.

Multi-HDR format support Superb image performance for the price Integrated streaming apps

Unexciting CD playback Average build quality

When it comes to value for money, the Panasonic DP-UB820 4K player is a difficult proposition to beat. If you already own, or have plans to invest in, a Dolby Vision or HDR10+ compatible TV, the UB820 warrants the price premium over the cheaper DP-UB420.

Panasonic DP-UB820EB review

 

Panasonic's 4K player delivers on many levels

Vibrant, immersive HDR picture ; Punchy, believable colour balance ; Powerful and weighty sound

Could be dynamically subtler ; No SACD or DVD-A support

This 4K Blu-ray player promises plenty on paper and backs that up with a hugely entertaining picture and sound

Panasonic DP-UB820 4K Blu-ray Player Review

 

The Panasonic UB820 includes most of the features found on the flagship UB9000, but at a considerably lower price. Is this 4K disc player the bargain...

Superb disc playback ; Dolby Vision/HDR10+ support ; HDR optimisation ; Decent build quality ; Great price

No SACD or DVD-Audio playback ; Netflix app always outputs in HDR/DV ; Issues with Atmos from Netflix and Amazon

The is an excellent 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player that is nicely designed and well put-together. It has a fairly minimalist appearance, with a drop-down flap across the front, a simple display, a USB port and two buttons. However, there's a good selection...

Great picture and sound

 

I sold my Oppo UDP-203 and bought this Panasonic 820. To be honest I think the picture is slightly better from the Panasonic, and the sound is the same. I love the fact I can stream 4k video and use the browser. I would definitely recommend the Panasonic.

Great Blu-ray Player

 

Top rate 4K player, great picture and great sound. Remote is very user friendly and doesn't have to be pointed directly at the player for it to work, unlike my previous one. Upgrades ordinary Blu-ray Discs and dvds to a quality picture. Have not used...
