Panasonic knows how to make a quality Blu-ray player. They’re stepping up their game by adhering to the age old concept of “less is more”…in a sense, anyway. In this case, less is less when considering price, which may be exactly what some of the market is waiting for. The DMP-BDT110 3D Blu-ray player is basically the 310 high-end unit without all of the bells and whistles that drive the cost up.
Users will get the high-quality player that every entertainment setup needs, though they’ll be missing out on a lot of the connectivity that the higher end models offer. Many that are just now getting into the Blu-ray game don’t need all of the connections that the more expensive models deliver, which shows that Panasonic has been doing their homework. Sure, you won’t get to show off the Touch Free Sensor that opens the disc-tray by a simple wave of the hand, but hey, that’s all for show anyway, right?
A single HDMI v1.4 output, half of what the other models offer up, and the USB port is hidden behind a drop down panel on the front of the unit. This helps to maintain the sleek style that we’ve grown to love about Panasonic’s Blu-ray line. The play quality is great, and with the exception of the connection omissions, there’s no doubt that for the money, this player can get a newbie into the Blu-ray game seamlessly.
