Panasonic DMP-BD85K

28 January 2011
  • Summary: Panasonic's DMP-BD85K has great image quality and its 7.1 analog outputs are a nice plus, but it's slow and less featured than competing models.
  • Pros: Excellent Blu-ray image quality; Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, and YouTube streaming; Wi-Fi capable with included USB dongle; 7.1 analog outputs; plays music, videos, and pictures off a connected USB drive or SD card.
  • Cons: Competing models don't need a dongle for Wi-Fi; sluggish, despite superfast "quick start" mode; selection of streaming sources is on the small side; user interface is outdated and Wi-Fi difficult to setup; not DLNA compliant; no 3D Blu-ray support; no onboard storage.

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. Overall, this device exemplifies advances in Blu-Ray technology, offering features such as Bonus View, audiophile Digital Tube Sound simulation, HDMI jitter purifier, VIERA Cast, and more.
  • 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

Panasonic DMP-BD85 Blu-ray Player Review

1 June 2010
  • 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.  The video and audio performance of the player are strong and more than make up for any ergonomic challenges.
  • Pros: Finding this speaker configuration menu should be much more straightforward, Speaker delays should be adjustable in feet or meters (instead of microseconds).  As it is, you will need to refer to a conversion table in the manual to convert distances into delay times., The subwoofer channel should have a test tone like all the other speakers, Adjustments to speaker levels should be reflected in real time so you can hear (and measure) the effects of your changes, The "Co...
  • Cons: Awkward user interface, Aspect ratio issues with AVI and YouTube playback, Some glitches with Xvid-encoded AVI file playback, Remote lacks some basic functions (subtitle, set-up), No DLNA or home network media sharing feature, STILL no on-board storage or SD card in the box for BD-Live (Really, Panasonic?!)

Panasonic DMP-BD85 review

18 May 2010
  • Summary: If you thought the cheaper BD65 was a little light on the feature front, you can consider the DMP-BD85 to be Panasonic’s full-fat budget Blu-ray player. There’s a whole raft of features and technologies that the company has reserved for this deck. Extra functionality includes DLNA compatibility and a set of multichannel analogue outputs – useful if your home cinema amplifier is missing HDMI inputs.

Panasonic DMP-BD85 Blu-ray speler

21 October 2013
  • 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. Geen ander merk heft meer moeite gedaan voor het Blu-ray formaat.

Panasonic DMP-BD 85: 350-Euro-Player

14 December 2010
  • Summary: Der Panasonic DMP-BD 85 ist ein hervorragender Blu-ray- und DVD-Player. Aber auch schnittstellen- und multimediatechnisch hat er einiges auf dem Kasten, wie man anhand von attraktiven Angeboten wie Viera Cast sehen kann. Zudem erweist er sich auch als Alleskönner im vernetzten Haus. Kurz: ein echter Alleskönner. Im Internet kann man ihn bereits für 230 Euro bestellen.

Panasonic DMP-BD85

2 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Najbardziej zaawansowany obecnie odtwarzacz Blu-ray Panasonica wizualnie nie różni się od poprzedników i jest bardzo niski (tylko 5,5 cm). Rozczarowuje jakość materiałów, z jakich wykonano jego obudowę – wykorzystano plastiki przeciętnej jakości. Centralnie, na froncie urządzenia, za odchylaną klapką umieszczono szufladę napędu, który pracuje sprawnie, ale dość głośno. Po jego prawej stronie ukryto czytnik kart pamięci SD XC oraz złącze USB.
  • Pros: Wysokiej jakości obraz, Rozbudowana funkcjonalność, Wyjście analogowe 7.1, Komplet dekoderów audio HD
  • Cons: Plaski dźwięk na wyjściach analogowych, Głośny napęd, Duże gabaryty modułu WiFi
