Summary: A Beautiful Blu-ray Player, In Both Style and Picture Quality, I Wish More Companies Made More Like This. I Hate Many Of The New Blu-ray Players of Today, Too Boring And Simple, Some not all. This Panasonic Player, Is Wonderful..At A Great Buy and Price.
Summary: This is a great blu-ray player and the only one so far to play dvd-audio (now the Oppo does as well for 500 bones), so if that interests you then you are getting a two-for-one deal. This receiver does (contra previous reviews) decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS High Resolution, but not DTS-HD Master.

Summary: ... some might call it lying. I called Panasonic after hours spent on my Yamaha AV receiver (RX-V863) and the BD10AK menus. The problem: I couldn't get my receiver to push Dolby True HD audio, only PCM or regular Dolby Digital through my 7.1 speakers.
Summary: Own mine now for about a year. No problems and picture is awesome! Viewing on a 1080p Panasonic set. I did update the firmware a few months ago and it helped with loading some BD's. Note that some BD disc will be better quality than others.
Summary: Cost about a grand when we got it in 2006.
Pros: Got the player christmas 2006 and its worked great ever since. Connected to a sony 30" (CRT) 1080i hdtv via HMDI and the picture is amazing. Looks great, stays cool. Its got lots of outputs... whatever you need pretty much. We use hdmi and an optical cable going to the amp for the sound. The surr...
Cons: Rather slow with menus and stuff, but i guess this is a common problem for bd players. Also, the hinged mirror on the front of the box can get a bit annoying (although it does look cool)
Summary: The Panasonic DMP-BD10A is a high quality Blu-Ray player. Start up times (once the power button is hit to time disk tray will come out)are as fast as my upconvert DVD player...Much faster than the Sony BDP-S300 I use to own.
Summary: After researching the sony and sharp, the Panasonic start from load is less than 30 seconds, haven't required an update as of yet, Everything works wonderfully. Also own the first generation Toshibs HD DVD player, but now unfortunately, even though the insane load time, HD DVD looks like it has...
Summary: I have a Toshiba HD-DVD player, but with the demise of HD-DVD, I decided to get a Blu-ray player. I bought this specific model because is has 5.1 or 7.1 analog out, and decodes everything internally, up to, but not including DTS-HD MA. No other player I've found will do all of this.
Summary: I bought this and had no troubles until about 3 and a half months after I bought it. One day it went dead. It won't turn on or do anything. It sat in the same place for that time, undisturbed except for regular use.
