Summary: Great DVD Player! I bought this to go along with a new 47 inch HDTV and have been thrilled with it thus far. It was quick and easy to set up and not only does it give a stunning viewing experience with Blu-Ray discs, it also does a great job of up-converting standard DVDs as well. The slim design makes it great to store without taking up a ton of room in your media cabinet or TV stand which is a definite plus.
Summary: I upgraded from BD30. First bought the Sony S550, but did not like. Returned it and bought the BD55K instead. Picture is sharper than Sony, sound in TrueHD and HD-MA is fuller than Sony, sub out did not require 10bd boost. The remote and menu selections could be a little faster (maybe with future firmware), but not a big complaint. Wished the remote had a "quick replay" (ten seconds) button.
Summary: More of a question than a review.
After reading all of the favorable reviews, I'm considering buying either the DMP-BD35K or DMP-BD55K. But I'm unsure on how to hook either of them up to my other media. I have a Pan. SC-HT820 Home Theater (w/the following connections on the back of the receiver....DVD - Y, PB PR & S-video - DVD/VHS - Video Out, L Line Out & R Line Out - EXT - Video In, L Video Line In & R Video Line In. No Audio In or Out Connections. I also have a Pan.
Summary: I live in Brazil and am on my way to NYC in a week and want to pick up a Blu-Ray. I am pretty much decided on either the 35k or 55k, for US100.00 it is worth it to get the 55k?
Also, here in Brazil we have a different region DVD (I think we are region 4 and the USA is region 1) but the same Blu-Ray region (Americas, I believe it is region A). Can anyone tell me if I will be able to play local DVDs on this Blu-Ray player? Or will I have to "unblock" the player?
Summary: I bought the Blu Ray Disc player, primarily on the review found in SOUND & VISION magazine. I was particulary concerned that the unit would have very good up-conversion. I am very satisfied with the Panasonic DMP-BD55K
1080P Blu-Ray Player. I do not have the unit connected to Broad ban. I don't want to spend the additional monthly cost of up grading my connection to the internet. At this point in time, I regard all the additional tricks it can perform as UNINTERESTING.
