Summary: Usually get a good picture on DVD and BLU-RAY movies but once in awhile will get a glitch or breakup of the pixels which can be annoying. Tried updating the firmware but still get the glitch. If your a perfectionist then look for another player.
Summary: This deck was highly recommended when reviewed by Consumer Reports. I have no real complaints, except that I missed the streaming of services such as Netflix. That option was included in the next version, so that is lacking. It does not play 3D Bluray.
Summary: The Audio is much better than my old Helos DVD conected to my Yamaha V2400 AVR, however I am disapointed with Componet Cable play back. This unit Will Not upconvert 480P to 720P. By reading Panasonics description of product - I thought it would.
Summary: This unit worked great for about 12 months but now it makes a really horrible noise when loading a Blue Ray disc and after about 2 minutes says the disc is "unreadable". It will play regular DVDs still though. Bizarre...
Summary: Video quality is fine for both BD and DVDs, although VRS Anchor Bay based players are capable of better quality images. Its sound is also good for a BD player, actually BD80 is far better than BD45/60/65/75, good enough to use BD80 as a CD spinner.
BD80 Unit fails to recognize disks after 18 months

Summary: Was entirely happy with this unit until this morning when it no longer recognizes any kind of disk. Have had it for 18 months, so it is out of warranty! Was not used much! One expects better from such a higher end unit. Tried a cleaning disk to no avail.
Enjoy blu ray without upgrading all your equipment

Summary: I bought this blu ray disc player solely for the reason that it had 7.1 analog inputs. This blu ray player allows those of us who have spent thousands of dollars building a quality home theater to keep our old equipment instead starting all over again in order to enjoy the benefits of blu ray.
Summary: I bought this unit after hearing about it at a high end stereo store. This is the perfect dvd player if you have a stereo receiver that does not have an HDMI input. It accepts analog inputs. It seems hard to really get into the fine tuning for the analog but if you can do it it's great.
Summary: After a bad first experience with a BD player from Shamsung I spent the extra few bucks for this Panasonic and i'm glad I did. Player perfroms flawlessly,not one lock-up or HDCP hand-shake problem after months of use.
