Panasonic understands that some of you out there simply don’t want, or can’t afford, to get involved in the 3D movement right now. Well, for you, they’re offering up a quality Blu-ray player that doesn’t have any 3D capabilities. This should help keep the cost down for those looking to upgrade a bit at a time. The DMP-BD75 delivers a great picture, and though the 3D is missing, you’ll definitely be getting the quality that Panasonic delivers with every unit.
The player isn’t going to win any fashion contests, mind you, but the USB port and SD card slot still give you the connectivity that so many crave these days. Further, the HDMI AV outputs are simple and are perfect if you have a simple entertainment unit. However, there isn’t much room to grow on this unit, so if you pick one up, you may need to upgrade down the road to ensure that you’re maximizing your technology.
An Ethernet port is how you’ll load firmwire updates, but don’t expect to get into Viera Connect or Skype. These units are designed to be bare-bones, keeping the costs low, and offering a Blu-ray option for those that don’t want to shell out for an expensive player right now. All in all, this is a solid buy if you don’t mind the simplicity of it.
