Panasonic DMP-BDT100 Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Player Review

Friday, July 1, 2011

Panasonic DMP-BDT100 Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc PlayerPanasonic DMP-BDT100 3D Blu-ray is currently one of the cheapest Blu-ray 3D, but this does not mean sacrificing performance for cost savings. The player offers a robust set of options for streaming (Netflix, Amazon VOD, YouTube, Pandora, etc.) and very good upconverted DVD and Blu-ray extraordinary, for the same price as many standard 2D Blu-ray. UPDATE: Vudu is now available on BDT100 via a firmware update recently and the server.

It is a great player for the price Panasonic Bluray 3D. Like its sister BDT300  and BDT350 players ,you can choose the setting for the card, which works perfectly with my Mitsubishi WD60-737. I use it to stream Netflix movies. My first 3D experence, I have to say I was very impressed watching the movie Monster House Develop X102 glasses.

I waited to buy the Blu-ray 3D because it was half the price of BDT350. I was a little concerned if it was so good? I must say that this player is great. I saw the movie on the Panasonic has sent me to buy the 50-inch VT25 3D television. Now it's time to choose the film a little more! I a technician, but 3D is great that the film sent. I'm glad I went with Panasonic seem to have an advantage in 3D! I wanted to buy 3D glasses for the most part I only waited for the off-BDT100. Why spend money on a player when you can fit the whole family with 3D glasses! I made the right decision!

The player lacks some features compared to the top of the range DMP-BDT350: no dual HDMI output (only required if you use this with an old receiver is not compatible with the 3D), multi-channel analog outputs (not for use receivers with HDMI) is not integrated network and Wi-Fi (can be added via the wireless LAN adapter Panasonic). It also provides a user interface has a modern graphical user interface clumsy on the basis of what is seen by the current LG and Samsung Blu-ray, although it is higher than that of the user menu on the Pioneer players. However, the DMP-BDT100 provides all the basics and several advanced features, such as a strong high-definition video and audio performance. The player has passed all tests and films upconvert detection frequency of "Britney Spears and Munsil" and "HQV benchmark" DVD and Blu-ray also offers a brilliant and wide-format color prints 24p 4:04: 04 (24 options Output images / second) for both DVD and Blu-ray. If the disks are mainly money like watching movies, then there is little to fault in BDT100.

We have noticed a peculiarity with Netflix streaming BDT100. SD streaming content from Netflix, we saw something called "cue" (chroma upsampling error or "chroma bug"). This is something that can occur when a compressed video source has its color information upconverted to restore details lost in the process of color compression. BDT100 this upconversion is imperfect, which can lead to visible color bands or jagged edges on the borders between colors. The problem is obvious that the content definition Netflix streaming standard. Netflix HD DVD, Blu-ray Disc does not have this problem. And, frankly, that formed the eye could not even notice.

It becomes more evident when we move towards larger screens (eg, front projection systems), but some content can be viewed on screen size SD Netflix as the most common 42-inch and above. When asked if the problem is a deal-breaker for you or not, depends on how the standard-definition Netflix streaming to be done, and if the chroma bug is something that bothers you. But it would be negligent not to mention it. According to our contacts at Panasonic are aware of the problem and are working to find a solution.

If Netflix SD content is not part of your media plan, then we give an unqualified recommendation BDT100. But if you're watching a lot of standard definition content streamed from Netflix, then you may want to look elsewhere or wait to see if Panasonic can offer a solution to this problem BDT100.
