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
