Get Viera Connected with Panasonic's midrange Blu-ray deck, with 3D, DLNA and Wi-Fi as standard

Superb feature list ; Stunning pictures ; Intuitive, attractive operating system

Converted 3D still unconvincing ; Straight-laced design ; Skype requires expensive camera ; Some menus a little sluggish

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 review

 

Best Blu-ray player £100-£175, Awards 2012. A top-notch performer with great features

Brilliant detail ; impressive upscaling ; great sound ; lots of online content

Clunky remote ; some motion blur

Best Blu-ray player £100-£175, Awards 2012. The Panasonic’s ability to convey the fine detail impresses, along with its strong sonic performance.

The Panasonic DMP-BDTT220 packs a lot of features into its compact casing

Excellent HD image quality ; Refined user interface ; Streaming file support

Lightweight construction ; No album art support for MP3s ; Convoluted network mapping

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 review

 

The DMP-BDT220 occupies a potentially awkward position in Panasonic's 2012 Blu-ray player range. Is it merely a plain-Jane, utility-spec version of the brilliant DMP-BDT320? Or is it actually a nailed-on bargain that can deliver almost everything the...

Basic but effective specs, Superb picture and decent sound, Variety of streaming services

Joyless styling, Doesn't match its pricier brothers

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 review

 

Panasonic's new sliver of Blu-ray does it all for less than £200

Excellent picture ; Great user interface ; Good IPTV features ; Comprehensive file playback

Messy network streaming ; No Super Audio CD

The days when a Blu-ray player merely spun discs and made tentative contact with the internet via BD Live, are long gone.

The Panasonic DMP-BDT220 might be an entry-level Blu-ray player, but that doesn't mean it isn't packed with features. As well as VIERA Connect services and integrated Wi-Fi and DLNA support, the incredibly comprehensive picture and audio settings menu...

A fairly inexpensive player with extensive options for picture tweaking

Panasonic DMP-BDT220

 

The Panasonic DMP-BDT220 is a fast, full-featured Blu-ray player with a pleasantly low price.

Fast. Great video processing. Built-in Wi-Fi. Supports 3D.

Clunky remote. Menu system needs manual tweaking.

Performance and Conclusions The BDT220 is pretty speedy, averaging 24.8 seconds to load a non-BD-Live disc ( Ralph Bakshi's Wizards ), and 22.3 seconds for a BD-Live disc ( The Sound of Music 45th Anniversary Edition ).

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 review

 

If I had to recommend just one Blu-ray player for 2012, it would be Panasonic's DMP-BDT220 (about $130 street price). It's in the sweet spot of Panasonic's Blu-ray lineup, with built-in Wi-Fi and an excellent set of streaming-media services, including...

The Panasonic DMP-BDT220 has built-in Wi-Fi, 3D compatibility, and the Viera Connect suite of streaming-media services, which includes Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant, Pandora, and Vudu. The user interface for the streaming-media apps is...

Viera Connect doesn't support any subscription music services (like MOG, Rdio, or Spotify) nor does it have Flixster for UltraViolet support. The DMP-BDT220 also doesn't play back DivX or Xvid files.

The Panasonic DMP-BDT220 is the best Blu-ray value of 2012, with built-in Wi-Fi, tons of streaming-media apps, 3D compatibility, and a simple user interface.

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-ray 3D PlayerReview

 

Who needs a big budget? This insanely affordable 3D-capable player packs a nice little punch.

When we review products, we try to be as objective as possible. In other words, we like to call out the good and the bad. However, I found myself really stretching to come up with "Turns Offs" for the DMP-BDT220. Is it the greatest Blu-ray 3D player...

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-ray 3D Player

 

It will be interesting to see where the Blu-ray player market goes in the next few years. We reached a point of diminishing returns on the newer lines of players. The Bluray spec hasn't changed since the adoption of 3D, so there's nothing new to add,...
