Panasonic DMP-BD70V VHS/Blu-ray Player Review

24 July 2009
  • Conclusion: If you've still got a sizable collection of VHS tapes and want the simplicity of a single component to play back CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes and Blu-ray Discs, then the DMP-BD70V is pretty much your only choice, and it does do justice to the various media in the quality of its playback. However, you may get better quality VHS playback using a dedicated high quality VCR connected to your TV via s-video, assuming your TV includes a high performance upconversion processor.
  • Pros: Versatile, integrated playback of CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, VHS tapes and select electronic media from USB drives and SD cards, Excellent performance on Blu-ray Discs and DVDs, YouTube and other online content on your TV with no PC required
  • Cons: Lacks native S-VHS support, Lacks Divx media playback, Some tracking issues on older store bought and home-made tapes (this was better on our second review sample), Random BD playback freeze (fixed with firmware 2.2)
