Summary: If you've been shopping for a Blu-ray player with the best movie-quality picture, online content, USB, wireless lan, BD/DVD/CD playback, SD card slot, look no further. NOTE: The DMP BD65P is the ONLY model in the Panasonic Networking Blu-ray Disc Player lineup with COMPONENT VIDEO OUTPUTS, for a...
Summary: I was at first alittle skeptical of purchasing a refurbish item, although I have in the past. And since I did not want to spend alot of money at the time, I took my chance and bought this Panasonic Blu-ray dvd player; knowing Panasonic's reputation, so far, I'm satisfied with the quality and...
Summary: We purchased the DMP-BD65 Blu-Ray Player back in August of 2010. So I have had several months to use it and experience its offerings. It is a great entry-level player. The DVD upconversion and the price are what sold me. DVDs look great and the player is affordable.
Summary: The WiFi is not that big of issue for me. We will probably never even use it. I am one of those people who like to have an actual disc in my hand and like to go to the store and look for one to rent or buy.
Pros: Price! Great picture! Plays every cd/dvd you can imagine.
Summary: For the money this is a solid performer. I use the multi-channel audio and it works well.
Pros: Not a single problem with this player. Bought this after horrible experience with a Samsung Bluray player. I have seen about 3 firmware updates come since I installed it over the net. Each one flashes properly and it works afterwords. I have not encountered a disc that has an issue yet. I have an...
Cons: Firmware updates can take quite a bit of time.
Summary: Haven't updated the firmware yet due to no connection in the livingroom and wanting to watch movies right away. The picture is great to my Toshiba via components at 1080i. Sound it great thru my RCA via optical (DTS5.1). No hangups yet and have been watching for 7 hours straight.
Pros: My first "player" (cassette) was a Panasonic and it lasted for 30 years until I just threw it away. Nothing was wrong with it. I just got tired of my childhood toy. Including this one, there are four Panasonics in this house. Two DVD's, one VHS, and this new blueray. All work perfectly.
Summary: Knew wi-fi was an added cost and I like hardwired anyway, other option is the 85. The firmware glitch should not have happened but the quick resolution was appreciated. Also will not update firmware until confirmed safe.
Pros: Picture quality, price, ease of use
Cons: None on the player however when the 1.27 firmware was auto updated to 1.43 on 11/21/10 it "broke" Netflxx and stayed broke until the new 1.51 firmware fix released 11/24/10.
Summary: I bought this about 6 months ago. When I was researching what Blu-Ray player to buy I started getting the feeling that I was going to end up having a lot of problems since it seemed that no matter what model I looked at there were always a lot of reviews saying that people had nothing but problems.
