This player by Panasonic has won awards for best Blu ray player back in 2008, but how does it measure up now. The answer is broken into two parts both of which will inform your decision on this player.
For pure audio video quality this player is up there, Panasonic boasts some new technology (at least back in 2008) which significantly improves picture quality. "PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus" apparently it processes each pixel separately and has twice as accurate colour processing then basic player. While I couldn't possibly tell you scientifically how well it achieves this, aesthetically the quality is great. Both Blu ray and up-scaled DVD look really good. The player can also read CDs, AVI, Div X and MP3 files and many more file formats.
The player also has access to BD live although only via Ethernet cable, which unfortunately shows this player's age as it should be WI-FI really. There are also no stunningly innovative features to set it apart.
To conclude this is a high quality player, but its age is starting to show. If you don't care about extras and just want a quality player, then this is for you.
The DMP-BD35 is equipped with a card slot that makes it easy to transfer images from an HD camcorder or digital still camera that uses SD Memory cards. Simply insert the card, and the DMP-BD35 fills a large-screen TV with AVCHD-format video images or JPEG stills in full 1920 x 1080 resolution.
The DMP-BD35 can decode HD Audio (Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD) and output 7.1ch digital audio signal. The resulting audio is studio master quality sound. This signal can be connected to an HDMI compatible receiver that does not support HD Audio Codec.
