Excerpt: The entry-level range for Blu-ray players, which would be under the10 grand mark, wasn’t even around three years ago. Today, thanks to the reduction of Blu-ray components across the globe, manufacturers can safely lower their price and offer a buyer a range in this entry-level segment.
A basic Blu-ray player with no superfluous 3D or Web features

Summary: As a simple, offline-only non-3D Blu-ray player, Panasonic's DMP-BD75 does well. Its networked features are limited to DLNA playback -- there's no access to any Web features like ABC iView -- but if all you want is a player to watch Blu-ray movies with (and that's all you need, really), the DMP-BD75 is quick to start up and play movies.
Excerpt: Unsurprisingly, 3D will continue to dominate the home cinema agenda in 2011, with a flood of 3D-capable TVs and Blu-ray products hitting the market as the year unfolds. Indeed, Panasonic’s new range of Blu-ray decks includes no fewer than four 3D-ready models. But it’s worth remembering that not everyone has the desire or the budget to embrace the 3D revolution, which is why Panasonic also provides a couple of non-3D models, including the DMP-BD75.
Excerpt: Once again, the early adopters have benefited us all. Proof, if any were needed, is here, in the shape of Panasonic ’s new DMP-BD75 Blu-ray player. True, it’s not compatible with 3D content, and it has only a minimum of connectivity. But in other respects it’s well on the pace: as well as being compatible with the majority of video and audio discs, it’s able to play via USB 2.0 and can join to your DLNA network and play music, videos and still pictures saved on a server.
Pros: Great build and spec for the cash, capable of engrossing pictures and emotive audio
Cons: Sound can lack dynamism and images can be bettered

Excerpt: Always a purveyor of high-end rather than budget Blu-ray decks, it's no surprise that the majority of Panasonic’s 2011 output is 3D-ready. 3D support is handled by Panasonic’s DMP-BDT310, DMP-BDT210 and DMP-BDT110 decks, and while this DMP-BD75 model is resolutely 2D, don’t make the mistake of calling it entry-level.
Pros: Crisp 2D high-def, 35mm height, DLNA, DivX & DivX HD support
Cons: Limited digital file support via DLNA & USB, lacks optical audio, no WiFi option, no online content
Excerpt: 3D zal de home cinema agenda van 2011 blijven domineren, met een vloedgolf aan nieuwe 3D TV’s en 3D Blu-ray producten van alle grote elektronica fabrikanten. Panasonic’s nieuwste Blu-ray serie bestaat bijvoorbeeld uit niet minder dan drie nieuwe 3D Blu-ray spelers. Maar het is belangrijk niet te vergeten dat niet iedereen de 3D revolutie omarmt en om deze reden brengt Panasonic ook een nieuwe standaard Blu-ray speler, de DMP-BD75.
