Summary: If you want the best picture quality from your Blu-ray and DVD movies, the Panasonic DMP-BDT320 is an easy choice - it's one of the best players we've tested for both 2D and 3D Blu-rays, as well as DVDs. Over and above this it's got Panasonic's acceptably good VIERA Connect service, which has a decent range of video on demand but can be sluggish.
Pros: Excellent design, Excellent Blu-ray picture quality, Very detailed DVD up-scaling
Cons: VIERA Connect needs more features, New remote's trackpad is imperfect, Poor file support over DLNA
Excerpt: The Panasonic DMP-BDT320 is the brand's top of the line high-street disc spinner. You’ll find it parked just ahead of the economy 7 Panasonic DMP-BDT220 , but behind the brand’s gleaming audiophile DMP-BDT500. It’s stupidly slim, but packed with clever tech. The model is aimed squarely at the hi-tech Sony BDP-S590 and makes the likes of the £500 Onkyo BD-SP809 look like a relic from the Stone Age.
Pros: Peerless HD video playback, Advanced audio processing, Solid choice in Catch-up TV
Conclusion: The DMP-BDT320 will inevitably be compared with its traditional – and more expensive – sibling, the DMP-BDT500 , which no doubt wins out in that comparison. The pricier player has extra power, evident in the added vibrancy of colours and the muscular authority of its sound.
Pros: Good picture detail, sound is great with dialogue, glossy look
Cons: Usability could be better, slightly more expensive players offer a good deal more
