Excellent Player
 
Just upgraded from the DMP-BDT350, another excellent player. The new player has an improved interface and a better integration with Panasonic TVs. The best feature is it's excellent high quality 7.1 analog feature for people who have non HDMI Legacy receivers. The other great advantage is it can play VUDU 3D movies unlike the 350 and Netflix plays with DD sound. Overall an excellent and highly recommended player.

Good features, not brilliant implementation
 
I bought this purely because I needed analogue outputs and I needed network ability. The good : Picture and Audio quality are excellent. Ethernet port is useful (my home network is all cat5e wired only). The rest : Remote control is a headache but usable. The DLNA streaming (using this unit as a client) is fine for audio, but a complete non-starter for video. I don't believe I have managed to play any video files from any DLNA server (I have a few DLNA servers on my home network, XBMC, Twonky on...

This review is to clarify why you would want this unit over other models. It is not entirely clear from Panasonic or some tech reviews. It is not a player for universal downloaded formats, it is a near audiofool unit at a consumer friendly electronics price.I was shopping for 3D BD player with dual HDMI output for future use and analog surround out for immediate use. Few models caught my attention, as few are available. This model is 2-5X cheaper (based on Amzon July '12 promotions) than other w...

I bought this player specifically to replace a previous Blu-ray player that I was very dissatisfied with due to some audio problems (let's just say "Life wasn't Good"). What I didn't expect is that the Panasonic player would also substantially improve both the video and audio I had been experiencing.The player was shiny and beautiful out of the box which I will have to work to keep it that way since I imagine fingerprints will easily show up. But the real beauty is on the inside. The first Blu-r...

I have to say I did a lot of research on so many players and found this one to be really good. The picture and sound quality is awesome. I was debating between the Sony BDP-S790 and this one. I think in the end whichever one you go with you will be fine between the Sony BDP-S790 and this Panasonic. Read all the reviews, and was said that the Panasonic had a little better sound and I think boy were they right! Once you get all your personal settings tweaked that is! But with the S-790 you will ha...

Superb for certain types of users, avg for others
 
What's great about it: 7.1 channel analog output, Burr Brown 5102, Dual HDMI output, video quality What's not so great: Speed, The price, disc tray cover, remote control, I'm an avid home theater enthusiast, who has owned many high-end home theater products from all of the major manufacturers. With that said, I can tell you that this player is certainly very good, although it is a bit of a disappointment. Allow me to explain... For the average CE consumer, this player simply won't be worth the...

First of all, this is a great Blu-ray player for both video and audio.I don't rate the streaming features, because the software guys keep changing what works and if you really want this, get a PC. This is not a computer. I also don't care about streaming. I want full rez, full frame rate discs.The picture quality is excellent as is the startup and navigation. Disc access is quick.The audio part is where this unit shines. Analog sound is outstanding, especially when connected to a high quality...

The dmp-bdt500 is Panasonic's answer to the audiophile's desire to have a machine that offers superb video AND audio playback--they have succeeded. The highlights of this machine are the four Burr-Brown 192kHz/32-bit DAC's, 7.1 channel analog output, higher end capacitors and a more robust construction. I will express my opinion(s) about the design, engineering and performance. This machine is a Blu-ray player (and dvds of course), a cd player and is has built-in Wi-Fi for streaming movies, musi...

As a Blu-Ray player its a fine product. As a WI-FI network device, it fails miserably.Pros:-Great Blu-Ray player-Beautiful up scaling with DVD-Good sound and features-FLAC supportCons:-Price-Marginal UI software-Broken WI-FI subsection-Touch pad on the controllerThis will be the 2nd unit going back to Amazon. If you need or want wireless support with this device, just don't buy it. I have replaced my wireless router to eliminate that as the cause. It still loses its LAN address and the only w...

One simple comment: A couple of months ago I ordered the Oppo 93 & 95 and I returned them to the seller. These players got great picture but the sound quality, contrary to many hyped reviews, is not worth the money. They just sound cold to me (I already use tube amplifications). But with the Panasonic I found the picture is just as great. More importantly, it sounds better than the two Oppo. Inner details, micro-dynamics, musicality, all are there for you. I am writing as a 20 years audiophile. ...
