Panasonic DMP-BD10 Blu-ray player
Trusted Reviews has the Panasonic DMP-BD10 up for review today. Just the fact it supports 1080p and DVD Audio means this player has a lot going for it. However, like many first generation players their are a lot of features that have been omitted that are part of the advanced 'Level 2' Blu-ray specs. Check out page 2 in their article for more info.
From the article:
So far so good? Not quite. One rather glaring omission from the rear panel is an Ethernet port, which means that the DMP-BD10 won’t be able to access online content once BD Live is up and running. We appreciate that Panasonic was trying to keep a cap on cost and that Ethernet isn’t mandatory for Blu-ray decks, but its omission is a little galling for the money – after all, it’s one of the format’s big selling points. It also means that firmware updates have to be made by playing a CD-R, either burned from the Web or provided by Panasonic
