Dreading this day this unit breaks down

Judi Fryer "Judi, Entertainment-glutton", Amazon

  • Summary: I am the co-moderator of the Billy Bob Thornton on-line fan group. As such, I have nearly every early film Billy Bob appears in for even a minute or two. When I wanted to purchase a Blu-ray player in 2010 I purchased this unit for $139.99 in April of 2010 and consider it one of the best $140.00 I have ever spent for technology. The draw was having a new Blu-ray player and a new VHS player.

Loving it

Boxodreams "boxodreams@aol.com", Amazon

  • Summary: I think there is probably a reason these players are going for $1,400-plus as I write this -- they are hard to find and they are fantastic. Let no one tell you the VCR quality is not good. It is very good. Fuzzy old tapes I thought dead turned out to have quite a bit of mileage left on them when run through a player that cared. I have boxes of old VHS tapes that I made myself off TV and it is great to see them holding on in such fine form.

DMP70V Panasonic Warranty useless. Don't trust !!!!

J.T., Amazon
15 September 2010
  • Summary: Purchased from Amazon, Apr 2010 Opened to install, Aug. VHS ok. DVD, oK. Blue lazer failed to function. Panasonic told me to send it to Texas under Warranty. Texas returned a DMP60 without a VHS. I contacted PanasonicThey said they would send a RMA for replacement. Later, i received a call from Panasonic. I was told that the DMP60 was a later model and even though it did not contain a VHS, Panasonic felt they have no further obligation. He told me to go buy a VHS.

Another winner from Panasonic!

Moodies forever, Amazon
2 April 2010
  • Summary: Bought this on a whim. I have lots of old self recorded series on VHS, such as the Original Star Trek that were broadcast by the Sci-Fi channel in the late 90,s. The upconvert on these is really impressive. On the other hand it did nothing for purchased VHS movies, and actually made some unwatchable. I am guessing that the tape's original copy protection and HDMI do not like each other.

Panasonic Blu-Ray / VHS player

T "T", Amazon
31 March 2010
  • Summary: This player combines the best of both worlds. It's a blu-ray player so you get the best picture possible. It will also play my old collection of VHS tapes with a better picture than any VHS player I've ever owned.

quality control and features slipping?

bigoil, Amazon
26 March 2010
  • Summary: I like panasonic products, and still have two of their older top of the line VCR and DVD changers that I still use and were able to use in this comparison. So by feature set: Blu ray - blu ray disks loaded and displayed at least as fast as on my PS3. I hooked the BD70 up to a 32 in samsung TOC monitor which I use for video work.

Fantastic to this Non-Techy!

Beth B, Amazon
22 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought this unit during one of the special day deals and it was a fantastic deal. I'm so happy with this dvd/vhs Blu-Ray player. I'm absolutely NOT technically gifted, but I was able to easily hook it up and get it working very quickly. I also bought an HDMI cable to hook it up to my LCD TV (around $3 here on Amazon) and I am thrilled with my new "home movie theatre quality". The sound and the picture are absolutely amazing! Worth every penny and more.

Another All-in-one Solution

M. Newman "Superville", Amazon
19 March 2010
  • Summary: Everything seems to be combining in the techno world. Cell phones are like digital Swiss Army knives, replacing watches, home phones, and even computers. Now we have a Blu-Ray, DVD, VHS, and Internet Media all-in-one solution. Sure you might not watch VHS tapes anymore but you probably still own a few. Instead of having a bunch of different players piling up, all you need is one. It's about the same size as a regular DVD player, maybe slightly wider.

VHS/Blu-ray good for husband and Grandpa

Mother Jaybird, Amazon
6 February 2010
  • Summary: To those who couldn't understand why this product would be attractive: My 80-yr old father had a VHS library that he enjoyed tremendously. When our last VHS player in the house died, we found that VHS players are relatively scarce, but found the Panasonic DMP-BD70V player. We have been very happy with it and my husband is happy to be upgrading to Blu-ray. My father died four weeks ago - we still have his VHS "Appaloosa" and "Dogs of War" on the counter.
