Good player - lousy internet sound quality

V. Tichy "VT", Amazon
4 January 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this bluray player to enjoy bluray movies as well as stream movies online. The player works fine with bluray discs. The internet streaming is disappointing as the sound quality is nothing special. After several calls to Netflix and Panasonic, it was determined that only the play station 3 plays 5.1 true surround sound quality. Its up to Netflix to upgrade their service.

Slow response, doesn't like Samsung TVs but fine when working.

W. Hohauser, Amazon

  • Summary: The other two Blu-Ray players I own are Samsungs so that's what I have to compare to. The image quality is near excellent but that's where I start to have problems. With the Samsing units all I had to do was plug them into my Samsung LCDs and off we were watching DVDs and Blu-Rays. The Panasonic started as a problem as soon as I went to set it up. It asked to hook up to my wireless network, which it failed to detect although it found my neighbor's networks.

Wi-Fi Works Only Sometimes

RN, Amazon
21 November 2010
  • Summary: Connection to Internet through Wi-Fi only works about 20% of time on first or second try. Sometimes I must click 'Network' 4-9 times (40%) to eventually get a connection; each of these attempts at connection takes about a minute or so. Other times it takes 10 or more attempts to get a connection (20%); and sometimes a connection just can't be made (20%). This is very annoying and frustrating and a good reason to buy another Wi-Fi capable Blu-ray player.

Good player but below expectation

T. Vu, Amazon
25 May 2010
  • Summary: Have had the player for about 4 weeks now and here is my take on it: Pros: Picture quality. crystal clear, sharp and vivid. I compared it with the Samsung BDP6500 using the same projector/screen and the picture quality of the Pan 85 is just clearly better. Sound. Produces good sound but I prefer the sound effect feature to be 'off'. The 'digital tube' options sound small, thin and dont really have the warmness/richness of a tube amp. Anyway, it's personal opinion.

4 Jahre Spitzenleistung, dann...

Gregor, Amazon
21 September 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe das Gerät im Oktober 2010 gekauft und war von Anfang an sehr zufrieden: Das Bild und der Ton sind beispielhaft. Einzige Nachteile für mich waren die doch recht langsame Reaktionszeit beim starten (15-20 sec.) und einlesen (Beim starten kann man diese Länge auf eine Sekunde verkürzen, wenn man den Schnellstart einschaltet, der aber mehr Strom kostet), sowie das allgemeine Reaktionsverhalten bei animierten Menüs.

Sehr gutes Gerät mit Einschränkungen

Michael Kennel "MacNeugier", Amazon
21 June 2010
  • Summary: Ich sehe meine Rezession als Ergänzung zu den übrigen Meinungsäußerungen. Der Panasonic DMP-BD85 ist ein Gerät, dessen Bild- und Tonqualität über jeden Zweifel erhaben sind. Auch seine Verarbeitung hebt sich gegenüber Geräten anderer Marken deutlich ab. Die Gestaltung der Fernbedienung verstärkt diesen positiven Eindruck. Das etwas laute Laufgeräusch und die lange Ladezeit sind nicht wegzudiskutieren, spielen aber im laufenden Betrieb keine Rolle.
