Panasonic DMP-BD55K - Great BluRay player

David Thatcher, Amazon
10 February 2010
  • Summary: I got this right after Christmas 2009 from Warehouse Deals, Inc. Very fast shipping. Player is super. I got it because it has the analog speaker outputs I needed for my older stereo receiver. It also has a really good picture.

This Blu-ray Disc player meets all expectations

L. Northington "Jaw 2th", Amazon
13 April 2009
  • Summary: When I first read the many early glowing reviews of the Panasonic BD55 Blu ray disc player I was a bit suspicious. So I read reviews of multiple players from other manufacturers. None of them seemed to match the impression made by this particular Panasonic device. So I decided to aquire my own machine...even after the company had made the decision to discontinue this model and replace it with a similiar model with different numbers behind the Panasonic name.

A brief opinion - revised October 2012

DaveM, Amazon
6 April 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this deck from Amazon at $325.00 new, along with the Onkyo 706 receiver. The deck performs without any issues right out of the box. Startup and disk loading times are reasonable...a bit longer than a normal DVD player, but much faster than my original Toshiba HD-A1 HD DVD player. I downloaded a firmware update and burned it to disk, then installed it without problems. The on-screen menus are intuitive and well laid-out.

Very good, only a few complaints

Ant Farmer, Amazon
24 March 2009
  • Summary: In general I'm quite pleased with the quality of this unit and the video playback quality. I don't regret buying this player, but there are a few areas where things could be improved: 1) Does not play SACD disks and lacks the 6 channel analog out on players that read SACD disks. So I have to keep my old pioneer DVD player hooked into the system to play my half dozen SACD disks. Makes my setup a bit more cluttered than I'd like.

Fantastic Blu-ray Disk Player

Henry P, Amazon
26 February 2009
  • Summary: I am very pleased with this purchase. Since my home theater receiver is four years old I had to connect the player directly to the television and the receiver. I set it up in mimutes and it connected to my home theater system via the fiber optic audio cable connection and to the television via the hdmi cable. Sounds and looks great.

This vendor is price gauging under Amazon's name.

  • Summary: The list price for the DMP-BD55k is $399.95. Amazon should disassociate itself from this vendor. Unbelievable.

Gotta Be Kidding!

Paul V. Olson "Paul", Amazon
19 February 2009
  • Summary: YES, this is a really fine blu-ray player. But $900.00??? Gotta be kidding. I paid $399 towards the end of last year. Don't pay this ridiculous amount. Panny's new models are coming soon.

One of the Few Divx certified Blueray Players

Mike Rios "Computer , Video and Digtal", Amazon
14 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this unit to replace my older Phillips DVD player in my media room, and the one reason was it's ability to play Divx encoded discs, one of the few Bluray players that do. Since I now have a 42" Vizio, I needed a Blueray player to play DVD ( upconverted ) and my starting collection of Blueray discs. Upconverted DVDs look like you are watching in ciinema mode, they look good, kinda of a warm grainy look to them, but you never mistake it for Blueray.

average playback not compatible with samsung tv

E. aaron, Amazon
5 February 2009
  • Summary: This product flashed or went blank screen when playing on my samsung A650. Samsung sent me a different hdmi cable but it didnt fix the problem, but I thought they knew something so I tried 3 other cables and finally one seems to work. Some kind of tolerance thing? who knows... Anyway, the picture was zero difference than the BD35k. The only upgrade is the audio. If you are not an "audiophile", then dont bother with the extra $$ for this item.
