Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-ray 3D Player Review

BigPictureBigSound
4 January 2013
  • Conclusion: When we review products, we try to be as objective as possible. In other words, we like to call out the good and the bad. However, I found myself really stretching to come up with "Turns Offs" for the DMP-BDT220. Is it the greatest Blu-ray 3D player ever made? Um, no. However, it certainly is an excellent player for the price. If you've been waiting to add a player with streaming services or 3D capabilities, this is the one for you.
  • Pros: Unbelievably low price, 3D playback, Stellar image, Built-in WiFi
  • Cons: No Pandora out of the box (requires additional set-up), More apps, please, Load times could be a squeak quicker, Panasonic DMP-BDT220 on Panasonic's website

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Blu-ray 3D Player

Sound & Vision Magazine
27 September 2012
  • Excerpt: It will be interesting to see where the Blu-ray player market goes in the next few years. We reached a point of diminishing returns on the newer lines of players. The Bluray spec hasn’t changed since the adoption of 3D, so there’s nothing new to add, and just about every device out there has an insurmountable number of streaming features. But that could have been said about last year’s models.

Panasonic DMP-BDT220 review

Stuff.tv
11 October 2012
  • Summary: The DMP-BDT220 occupies a potentially awkward position in Panasonic’s 2012 Blu-ray player range. Is it merely a plain-Jane, utility-spec version of the brilliant DMP-BDT320? Or is it actually a nailed-on bargain that can deliver almost everything the pricier player offers for quite a bit less money?
  • Pros: Basic but effective specs, Superb picture and decent sound, Variety of streaming services
  • Cons: Joyless styling, Doesn't match its pricier brothers

Panasonic DMP-BDT220

What Hi-Fi?
20 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Panasonic has a history of making brilliant Blu-ray players. Last year’s DMP-BDT210 was an Award-winner, and its top-of-the-range DMP-BDT320 is already the one to beat in 2012. And the new budget player, the Panasonic DMP-BDT220 , keeps up the strong performance. Play the Tintin Blu-ray and it’s immediately apparent that the BDT220 excels in what Panasonic does best: picture quality.
  • Pros: Brilliant detail, impressive upscaling, great sound, lots of online content
  • Cons: Clunky remote, some motion blur
