Panasonic DMP-BD10 Blu-ray player


Panasonic flies the Blu-ray flag with impressive results. You're gonna need deep pockets though!

Panasonic also provides an RGB-capable Scart output plus component, S-video and composite outputs. On the audio front, there are 7.1-channel analogue audio outputs, which reveals that the DMP-BD10 is fitted with a Dolby Digital Plus decoder (alongside...

Panasonic DMP-BD10A review


We liked Panasonic's original Blu-Ray player, the DMP-BD10, but found it hard to love. While it showed hints of the format's remarkable visual and aural talents, its DVD playback was disappointing and the wallet-pounding £1200 price tag was way too...

Panasonic DMP-BD10A review


Panasonic's updated Blu-ray player still costs a packet

Excellent picture and sound ; Good menu screen

Slow to load discs ; Expensive

Stunning images and improved audio can't quite persuade us to part with so much money to join the HD revolution

Panasonic DMP-BD10 Blu-ray Disc Player


The launch of the Blu-ray high definition disc format didn't exactly live up to its hype. The first Blu-ray player on the market didn't perform as well as everyone had hoped for and the initial waves of poorly produced Blu-ray movies certainly didn't...

Panasonic DMP-BD10


At last all the talking is done, and the first next-generation, high definition DVD players are actually here. Both Samsung's BD-P1000 and this player use Blu-ray technology, giving the format a handy 'first out of the traps' advantage over rival HD DVD

Ease of use, Picture is outstanding, Sound is second to none

It costs £1,200

Very expensive but very, very good

The Panasonic DMP-BD10 is delivered exceptional image quality but had some functionality issues and carries an high price tag.

Panasonic DMP-BD10 review



Excellent picture quality on Blu-ray and DVD; DVD upconversion to 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p; HDMI output; DVD-Audio support; sleek design.

Very expensive; terrible remote; annoying front flip-down panel on unit; relatively slow load times; no HDMI 1.3.

The Panasonic DMP-BD10 is a very competent first-generation Blu-ray player, but its high price and the comparably affordable PlayStation 3 make it hard to recommend.

Panasonic DMP-BD10


Forward-looking cinephiles with deep pockets might go for DMP-BD10 Blu-ray player. For the rest of us, we recommend waiting a while or picking up a PS3.

Blu-ray discs look and sound amazing ; 7.1-channel audio ; Solid construction and sleek look

Very expensive, even compared with competing players ; Long load and eject times ; Shoddy remote control ; 1080p TV and 7.1-channel set-up required in order to make the most of the player

All up, the DMP-BD10 shows off the capabilities of Blu-ray well, but as with Samsung's pioneering player, we'd only recommend it to new-tech junkies who have the corresponding high-def equipment.

Product Specifications

A BD-Video disc can hold huge amounts of video and audio data. To unleash its full quality potential, you need a disc player that provides 62.2 million pixel-per-second video processing plus audio processing that's 1,000 times higher than typical CD players. The Panasonic DMP-BD10 goes far beyond those specifications. With 15 billion pixel-per second processing and 192kHz/24bit audio for each of eight channels, this Blu-ray Disc Player provides a level of image and sound quality that is truly amazing. At Panasonic, easy operation is important too. The DMP-BD10 comes equipped with HDAVI Control, a function that links operation of an HDAVI Control compatible TV and receiver, so you can control both at the same time with a single button. With the DMP-BD10, Panasonic invites you to discover an entirely new dimension of entertainment one with HD-quality images and sounds that surpass anything you've ever experienced. HD monitor required.
