A decent Blu-ray player marred by ads

CNET
10 November 2013
  • Summary: The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 is a mostly solid Blu-ray player, except it serves up obnoxious ads in its onscreen interface.
  • Cons: Advertising is built in to several of the menus, including undefeatable video ads in the app marketplace. The menu system can be a little perplexing at first and it's easy to hit the Netflix button on the remote by accident. The YouTube app lags.

  • Conclusion: The prismatic styling of the BDT230 somewhat sets it apart, looks wise, from the competition but it is still, at heart, just another black box. Connectivity options should be sufficient for most with a single HDMI, digital audio out plus USB and Wi-Fi built-in, and the included remote is both easy to use and comfortable in the hand.
  • Pros: Effecive, faithful playback, Decent smart features, The price is right
  • Cons: Can be a bit noisy, Netflix app a bit slow
