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sluggish, despite superfast "quick start" mode; selection of streaming sources is on the small side; user interface is outdated and Wi-Fi difficult to setup; not DLNA compliant; no 3D Blu-ray support; no onboard storage.
