Panasonic Features

  • Smartphone Remote Control: If you have a smartphone, you can use it as the remote control for your DMP-BDT220
  • FLAC Compatibility: This disc player is compatible with the lossless audio format FLAC, which is similar to MP3 but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in sound quality
  • Multi-User Mode: Four users can be registered and each can record individual favorite settings. You can also select a personal icon from 16 pre-installed images, or photos from an external source. Or, you can customize the home screen with any image you choose

  • UniPhier Single Chip Signal Processing: The UniPhier single chip signal processing LSI employs a simplified circuit architecture that eliminates unnecessary wiring for reduced noise on the picture and sound signal
  • Full HD 3D... For Full Immersion!: You've probably seen a couple of 3D movies in the theater by now, so you're familiar with the wraparound, realistic images that almost seem to leap off the screen to put you right into the action

Great Blu-Ray Player

Great job Panasonic! Very intelligent electronics, especially when coupled with new Panasonic LCD/LED TV Slim design fits in tight space. This unit made my 3 year old Blu-Ray player seem like it was from the days of 8 track tapes! The only thing I had trouble with was setting up the WiFi and the individual users. The software for setup and wireless choices is kind of cumbersome to choose what you want to do.

Great for blu-ray, DLNA worthless

Using with a Panasonic 3D LED-LCD TV. 3D bluray works great, DVD's work great. DLNA wouldn't play anything that my Panasonic TV plays! And there's no software updates available (1 was found when I first hooked it up, about one month ago).

Blu Ray picture quality is excellent. Have not watched a 3D Blu Ray yet but am optimistic that it will be good.

Great BlueRay player

By

from Raleigh, NC  -  Enthusiast

Very quick loading BlueRay player. Built in WiFi and software updates to keep it current! I have 2 of these plays in our beach house and one at home. We have had no issues using them - and they play Netflix nicely. 3D replays nicely on our Panasonic TC-P60ST50. Would recommend this player!

Good player; Netflix slow to load

By

from San Mateo, CA  -  Casual User

This is a player that performs well (which one doesn't?) and is reasonably fast at loading BluRay discs. On the plus side, you can use it to watch YouTube videos, which is not the case with all the systems. On the other hand, it is terribly slow at loading Netflix (the app itself, not the movies). If you are going to use Netflix a lot, I would rather recommend a Roku 3 which is much faster.

Had this one for just about a month. Chose this model on reasonable price and list of standard features incl. streaming. Its worked great on BR disks, DVDs, and streaming has been excellent. Would recommend to a casual home movie watcher.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
CAROLANN A  I did hours of research before selecting my first Blue-Ray player and settled on the Panasonic. It was a great choice. This is my third. Everyone who has seen my system has bought one. It is easy to use, reliable, truly plug and play, and I have never had a problem with any of my machines - I keep upgrading and moving old machines to new locations - they are all working great. After witnessing other people's issues with different brands - lag in dialogue with streaming, inability to automatically switch inputs, etc, I wouldn't consider buying another brand.
Rita B  since this panasonic BDT220 has built in wifi, can or will it update when they come out like a computer or other devices?
DAREK T J  As long as there is a router near by or hot spot to connect to the internet, it will check for updates for the firmware (you can manually check as well as long as you have a net connection established with the device). I've updated it twice already, and the 2nd firmware update increased the responsiveness quite a bit!
Burton S  Is this a Brand New unit - not returned or refurbished?
WILLIE B  Yes, it is brand new.
