Electronics Made Easy
2 November 2010
Summary: While Panasonic has considerably improved its Blu-Ray players, the Panasonic DMP-BD85 still has some shortfalls, such as the smaller, less-ergonomic remote and lack of DNLA compatibility.
Pros: Advanced- PHL Reference Chroma Processor, Jitter Purifier, and Tube Sound Simulator, Streamlined- includes improved VIERA Link and VIERA Cast features, Versatile- compatible with USB 2.0 and SD multimedia card devices, Connected- features integrated wireless and Ethernet
Cons: Improvable- poorer remote ergonomics than competing players
Conclusion: Although I spent a lot of time describing the operational idiosyncrasies of the player, these are relatively easy to get used to over time. Casual users will not need to access the set-up menus often (if at all) and so will most likely never notice many of these issues.

Excerpt: Panasonic is één van de grotere merken in de Blu-ray wereld. Jaar na jaar worden de spelers van Panasonic met veel enthousiasme begroet en de reden hiervoor is vooral innovatie. Panasonic was overal het eerste mee; Profile 1.1, BD-Live, Blu-ray recorder, etc.
Summary: После начала массовых продаж новых Blu-ray 3D-плееров у потенциальных покупателей может сложиться ложное впечатление, что отныне «элиту» бытовых оптических проигрывателей представляют исключительно модели с поддержкой стереоскопического контента.
