If you're tired of your dusty, slow DVD player then it might be time for an upgrade. The Panasonic DMP-BD85 Blu-ray Disc player is one of the most popular Blu-Ray players on the market. The main reason for this is because it does much more than just playing Blu-Ray discs. From the moment you start using this player, you'll be blown away by the super fast two second boot-up time. The DMP-BD85 provides 1080/24p output which gives crystal clear viewing of Blu-Ray and DVDs in their original 24p form, exactly as you would see them in the cinema, the way they're supposed to be enjoyed. Standard DVDs are upscaled on this machine so you can experience your DVD collection like never before. A great feature that I love on this player is when I stop a movie half way through and turn off the player, the next time I switch it on, it asks if I would like to resume where I left off.
Once you've gotten through your Blu-Ray and DVD collection, the fun doesn't stop there. The Panasonic DMP-BD85 provides access to BD-Live and Panasonic's VIERA Cast functionality which allows you to stream movies, TV shows and even music without the need of a computer or other hardware. Simply connect your Blu-ray player to your Wi-Fi and you can access YouTube, Bloomberg, Netflix and Amazon Instant Video right from a very intuitive on-screen menu. You can also access Google's Picasa which is great for showing off photos of vacations and events to family and friends from a big screen in your living room, rather than having everyone cramped around a laptop. This player also has both a USB port and an SD card slot so that you can show off your own photos and videos from your digital camera without having to put them on a computer first. This works really well when showing off videos you have taken with a HD camcorder in the AVCHD format.
Setting up Wi-Fi and even creating a Netflix account over this player is a breeze. The interactions for set-up are easy to follow and even the remote is great to navigate. The player itself is very sleek and slim, so it looks better than a lot of Blu-Ray players when they first came out are were a bit chunky like the Magnavox NB500MG9. It has very silent operation too, which is great because there's nothing worse than a constant whirring when you're trying to enjoy a movie. With the USB and SD slots discreetly located at the front of the player, the easy set-up and navigation, fantastic DVD upscaling and the Wi-Fi connectivity, the Panasonic DMP-BD85 Blu-ray Disc player is one of the hottest gadgets on the market.
