The Panasonic DMP BD60 1080p Blu-ray Disc Player Black

This page about the Panasonic DMP BD60 1080p Bl-ray Disc Player was originally written in October of 2009, which means that this blu-ray player is no longer the most current blu-ray player on the market. However, it is still a highly respected, well reviewed and affordable blu-ray player for under $200. As a matter of fact, you can buy a used or reconditioned blu-ray player very affordably from the sellers on Amazon. If you are looking to buy a blu-ray player, this one remains a simple, inexpensive and excellent choice.

Before we get started, let me introduce myself. I am not a blu-ray expert. I am a work-at-home-mom who has been thrust into the blu-ray world by a technology-loving husband and I have been forced to learn as we go.

A couple of things that I have learned.

Firstly, to turn to the experts and let them handle the truly technical stuff. I read their reviews and recommend the excellent ones on my blu-ray pages.

Secondly, to trust Amazon's customer reviews. I take the time to carefully read all of the reviews of any product that I am buying and figure that if 105 people have given an item top star ratings, that is a pretty good indicator of the quality of an item. Of course, what they actually have to say about each item is important, too.

On this page you will find some expert recommendations and you will find some Amazon customer reviews from ordinary people like you and me. At anytime you can click on the links to Amazon to read more there. Doing so will in no way obligate you to buy anything from Amazon.

So, with no further ado, I give you the The Panasonic DMP BD60 1080p Blu-ray Disc Player Black and I wish you happy viewing!

A basic blu-ray player that plays in high quality. If that is what you are looking for, then Panasonic's DMP BD60 may be the blu-ray player for you.

For yourself or another tech entranced person in your life.

Well, here's a chance for me to ignore my advice about Amazon Customer Reviews. This magazine has poor reviews. However, I enjoy every single issue of Sound & Vision Magazineu> (my husband and I actually fight over who gets to read it first) and I think it is an excellent investment for anyone who is interested in the latest entertainment technology and gadgets.

I first read about the Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-ray Disc Player through a review of three units in Sound & Vision and I found it to be a superb article about an affordable item.

Each and every month I look forward to reading the blu-ray movie reviews and recommendations. I know this magazine would be an amazing gift for anyone interested in the subject matter.

      This is a very affordable blu-ray player. I was looking for a player to be compatible with my Panasonic plasma tv and this fit the bill The Panasonic viera cast on the player means i can use one remote for the tv and the player as well as control all functions with one remote. The picture quality is very good with sharp detailed lines and full colour saturated images. Loading times seem reasonable as well, although i am still waiting for the time that a blu ray player loads as fast as an ordinary dvd player. One item i was a little disappointed with was lack of mutichannel analogue outputs on the player as my Yamaha receiver doesn't support any hdmi inputs. These multi channel outputs are only to be found on more expensive blu-ray players, but the inclusion here on a cheaper player would i have thought been a feather in Panasonc's cap. The player itself is very attractive looking in its plastic chassis and is extremely thin and light. Although very cheap at the price it doesn't feel like a cheap product at all. Sound quality in "normal" 5.1 ch stereo surround is very good indeed. All in all i would highly recommend this player for anyone looking for an affordable way into the blu-ray market.

      With the BD60, Panasonic adds VIERA Cast online content access to their previous entry-level model, the DMP-BD35. You would think this makes an excellent Blu-ray Player even excellenter (yes, I know that's not a word), and it does. The BD60 excels in its Blu-ray Disc playback and is very good at DVD upconversion as well, passing difficult tests like the HQV benchmark discs with flying colors (as well as looking good on real movies).
