Panasonic DMP-BD30K review: Panasonic DMP-BD30K

 

Panasonic DMP-BD30K

Excellent picture quality on Blu-ray discs; 1080p output at 24 frames per second; DVD upconversion up to 1080p; HDMI 1.3b output; can output Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio in bitstream format; first Blu-ray Profile 1.1 player; SD card slot can...

No built-in decoding for high-resolution audio formats; no Ethernet jack for firmware upgrades or future interactive content.

The Panasonic DMP-BD30 offers excellent video quality and is Blu-ray Profile 1.1 compliant, but those who want high-resolution audio will need a cutting-edge AV receiver.

Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu-ray Disc Player

 

BonusView Blu-ray player responds speedily, but that doesn't make up for disappointing image and sound.

Fast response time ; SD Card slot for AVCHD playback

Image and audio quality mediocre

Sadly, extras like these don't make up for this model's relatively lackluster image and sound quality

One characteristic you're unlikely to see associated with the first generation of Blu-ray disc (BD) players is speed. Some players that I've tested have taken more than 2 minutes to load a relatively recent Blu-ray movie release, and that was after I...

Speediest disc load time of standalone BD players we've tested. Fast and easy multimedia browsing. Bitstream audio output with lossless audio formats. Custom picture controls.

Lacks network connection.

The Panasonic DMP-BD30 loads discs faster than other standalone BD players while delivering impressive picture quality.

Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu-ray Player - Full Review

 

Without a doubt, the BD30 is a definite step in the right direction for Blu-ray players. It offers state of the art playback performance from Blu-ray software and piece of mind with its support of the upcoming 1.1 profile. But this player isn’t for...

Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu-ray Player

Like most HD players on the market, the Panasonic DMP-BD30 delivers poor standard DVD playback that is not indicative of its price point. While I was more than happy with its Blu-ray playback capabilities, I would still suggest looking elsewhere for...

Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu-ray Player Reviewed

 

The $499.95 Panasonic DMP-BD30 was one of the first Profile 1.1 players to hit the market in late 2007. The Profile 1.1 designation means it contains the secondary audio and video decoders needed for picture-in-picture playback. However, it does not......

Panasonic DMP-BD30K Blu-ray Disc Player

 

After living with Panasonic's latest Blu-ray Disc player for a few weeks, we've only grown more attached to it. This is one solid high definition player, for a very affordable price.

Our first impressions of the DMP-BD30 haven't changed much over time - the player gets it right where it matters - in the reproduction of high quality color-rich 1080p images, and in its ability to pass next generation lossless audio surround...

Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu-ray Player

 

Now that the Blu-ray format has been available for a year and a half, we're starting to see lots of second- and third-generation players with enhanced functionality and reduced prices. Among them is the DMP-BD30, Panasonic's second-gen model with many...

The DMP-BD30 represents a significant improvement over Panasonic’s previous Blu-ray player, and it’s less expensive to boot. I’m bummed that it doesn’t play DVD-Audio, and I don’t care much for the menu system, but otherwise, it’s a superb Blu-ray...

Panasonic DMP-BD30 Profile 1.1 Blu-ray Player

 

The DMP-BD30, however, not only carries a significantly lower price tag ($499), but is a completely new design as well. In one important way it takes us closer to the ideal feature set that should have been designed into Blu-ray players in the first...
