Panasonic DMP-BD10A Review


Pretty nice looking bluray player if you’re in the market. Not spectacular reviews, but we’re still in the early generations of these products, so expect a lot more improvements if you can be patient.


or one, the BD10A comes with the newest firmware, which enables support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD High Resolution out of the box (BD10 owners can gain this functionality with a firmware upgrade). Secondly, the MSRP has taken a serious nosedive, all the way down to $600. And to further sweeten the deal, the DMP-BD10A comes with five Blu-ray movies packed in the box (Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Transporter, Fantastic 4 and Crash). Those factors make the BD10A a much better deal than the BD10, but savvy consumers will note that you can buy a PlayStation 3 for that price and get a whole lot more functionality.
