Panasonic DMP-BD65 review


The budget Panasonic DMP-BD65 Blu-ray player is still a worthy machine, but its close rivals have caught it up

Rich, colourful images ; deep blacks ; good detail and definition ; spacious, dynamic sound

Doesn’t display subtleties as well as some rivals ; sonic detail and timing can be bettered

The ’BD65 is a dependable, very capable entry-level machine that can’t quite muster class-leading performance

Panasonic DMP-BD65 review


We're used to Blu-ray players costing a mite less than this, so the BD65 has its work cut out – can it stave off the competition?

Panasonic jumps back into the leading pack at this price level – the BD65 is a great all-round Blu-ray player

Panasonic DMP-BD65 Blu-ray player


Given the almost inevitable death of the disc in favour of downloading and streaming, the big brands are busy fitting their Blu-ray players with digital diversions - and Panasonic is no different. With full marks for picture quality this super-slim,...

Quick loading, pictures, sound, easy to use

Basic BD Live, no DLNA networking, lacks analogue audio outputs

With full marks for picture quality this super-slim, super-fast Blu-ray player is left looking only reasonable value for money. Its treatment of digital media and the novel Viera Cast portal are exemplary, but a lack of both file support and broadband...

Panasonic DMP-BD65 Blu-ray player review


Pitch perfect pictures make this a Blu-ray player to savour

Picture ; Sound ; Easy to use

Lacks built-in storage ; No Wi-Fi ; No DivX HD playback

Panasonic was one of the first brands to build Blu-ray players, and it shows; this mid-range deck is one of the best around, and great value despite its above average price.

Panasonic DMP-BD65 review


The Panasonic DMP-BD65 is a refresh of last year's Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-ray player. Panasonic has added support for SDXC memory cards to its new model, along with access to new online content such as weather and Bloomberg financial news (more sites...

All in all, there is a lot to like about the Panasonic DMP-BD65. Those who require 7.1-channel audio will be especially well serviced by this excellent Blu-ray player.

Panasonic DMP-BD65 Blu-ray player review: An excellent Blu-ray player with 7.1ch audio

Attractive lightweight design, excellent Full HD video performance, SDXC memory card support

Limited USB file support, unwieldy remote control

The Panasonic DMP-BD65 Blu-ray player is an impressive performer that packs in plenty of functionality for a reasonable asking price.

Panasonic DMP-BD65P: Media Streaming at a Reasonable Price


The Panasonic DMP-BD65P's $150 price (as of December 6, 2010) makes it downright tempting, especially for a Blu-ray player that also streams video via the Internet. But a clumsy remote control and poorly designed on-screen menus make it difficult to...

Very low price ; Strong Internet-streaming options ; Multimedia via USB and SD ; Buttons on player are well placed

Disappointing image quality ; Ugly, poorly organized on-screen menus ; Difficult-to-use remote control

The Panasonic DMP-BD65P has a low price, given its selection of Internet-streaming options--but it suffers from uninspiring image quality.

Even without an integrated wireless adapter, this Blu-Ray player is still one of the best values for the price. Performance is typically flawless, with users reporting start-up times under 30 seconds. The VIERA Cast could improve in its selection of...
