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.
Conclusion: Nicely designed as a small package and delivering some top-notch Blu-ray images, this mid-range 2D deck is nevertheless bettered by similarly priced models from the likes of Sony, which add Lovefilm and BBC iPlayer goodness. If you're after a solid and dependable Blu-ray player there’s few better than this Panasonic, but if your digital ambitions stretch beyond playing-back the odd DivX file or photo collection we suggest you look elsewhere.
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
