Panasonic DMP-BDT310 Blu-ray Player

by on April 4th, 2011 | Comment | Share

The Panasonic DMP-BDT310 Blu-ray player was not made for the passive entertainment lover. Instead, Panasonic released this player with top-end performance in mind. For anyone that is going to shovel out the money for the best technology on the market, this Blu-ray player may be worth considering.

The design of the Panasonic DMP-BDT310 is minimalist, but that is only skin deep. This sleek machine offers a pair of USB sockets, RCA jacks, and two HDMI outputs near the power cord in the rear. There is a small hidden hatch near the front with a few additional controls as well as one of the USB sockets. A small display long the front also includes basic information such as the run time of the current movie and which connection is being accessed. One of the most exciting and showy features is the ‘wave-sensitive’ panel along the top of the player. Users need merely wave their hand in front of this to open the disc tray without touching the player.

Panasonic DMP-BDT310 3D Blu-ray PlayerThe inside of this glossy piece of technology is cutting-edge cinema programming. Before the movie or show is even turned on, the first thing that anyone will notice is the intuitive menu system. The days of confusing and unattractive menus are a thing of the past. This newest incarnation features single click options to skim through everything from Skype to the feature film. One of the first complaints of Blu-ray technology was the loading speeds. The Panasonic DMP-BDT310 has somehow cut this load time nearly in half to 10 or 20 seconds after hitting play, a huge improvement over the first few generations of players.

It is not just the specs of this machine that make it impressive, it is also the features. This player can connect to the internet wirelessly or via a hard line to take advantage of the pre-loaded Skype program. The front USB port can be used to attach a camera for free streaming calls around the world. For the ever growing stockpile of fully 3D films, the DMP-BDT310 comes fully equipped for this new wave of technology.

Blu-ray players are not simply around to play high-quality sound and video. Today’s technology must do more than simply carry out a single function. It may take months for any other Blu-ray player to catch up, but for anyone that desires the best technology to top off their home cinema, the Panasonic DMP-BDT310 may be the way to go.

What to consider before you buy the Panasonic DMP-BDT310 Blu-ray Player

This top of the range Blu-ray player also has a top end price tag – and whilst it is fully loaded with features, you could save huge amount if you don’t really need them all…

Why you should buy the Panasonic DMP-BDT310 Blu-ray Player

The BDT310 cranks up the feature temperature a little bit more. As well as the top of the range features we saw last year such as 3D playback, built in Wi-Fi and DLNA, this model also has two HDMI outputs. Smart and understated, but still obvious enough that it’s a top of the range player, the Panasonic DMP-BT310 is pricey, but then the best models always are aren’t they? Rating: 4.5/5

Hiya

I’m looking for a blu ray with built in wifi but I want to use it with my Bose acoustimass 5 speakers, do you know if this machine has the right connections for these speakers? If not, which one can I buy that will work with my speakers?

Thanks

The BDT310 does not have any speaker connection on the rear, so would be unsuitable.
