I have my Panasonic DMP-BD30K - Blue-ray DVD Player connected to my Samsung HL S0F087W 1080p DLP TV by HDMI connector. I'm also using a Yamaha receiver which is connected via fiber optic cable. I have no complaints with the picture quality with the player and Blue Ray player. The DB30K has one of the fastest movie load times so you don't have to wait a long time for the movie to start playing. Some Sony models I looked at took almost two full minutes to load. As with any device you need to keep the firmware updated. To update the firmware you have to go to Panasonics website and download it. The website also gives good detail instruction in how to download and burn the firmware on a CD-R media. Put the CD-R in the player and wait 5 five to 10 minutes for the firmware to install. I gave it a 4 for ease of use for non technical people who don’t know how to burn software to a CD. So far I have not had any problems and I am very satisfied with the performance of my Panasonic DMP-30K Blue Ray player. Buy.com sold me the player at a good price with free shipping.

Complicated setup when using standard DVD's as no video is output from the HDMI port. Have to use composite or if you want good quality upconverting then component cables are necessary. This is not covered in the manual as it implys you can get output from HDMI for everything. I was not able to do that with the units I had. If you use only Blueray then its not a issue.

Good buy for Blu-ray player

by T. Nguyen on 9/16/2008

Excellent price. Relatively easy to navigate screen. Panasonic makes great DVD players & I expect this will be the same for this Blu-ray player. This is a well rated player on most websites that sell it.

Product Overview

Blu-ray with a Difference

Blu-ray means incredible full-HD images, breathtaking sound and 5x the data capacity of DVDs. Now Blu-ray means something else too: an entirely new movie-viewing experience, made possible by Final Standard Profile, which adds features never seen before, like four Picture-in-Picture modes including Enhanced Commentary (from directors and actors), Backstage Pass, Peek Behind the Animation and Audio Mixing.

Combining a PHL Reference Chroma Processor with advanced P4HD (Pixel Precision Progressive Processing) imaging technology, UniPhier® — the Precise Digital Video processor — reproduces crisp, natural colors that are extremely faithful to the original movie. It does this by up-sampling the color information in decoded video signals, while the super high-speed P4HD up-converts content recorded in 480i/p, 720p or 1080i format to 1080p by correctly generating each pixel according to information drawn from up to 60 surrounding pixels. The image motion of each pixel is then categorized into one of 16 levels, from stationary to super fast. Image quality is further enhanced by Diagonal Processing, which creates smooth, sharp diagonal lines, and 3:2 Pull-Down, which optimizes the processing accordingly for film or video making the images look natural and lifelike. In addition, the DMP-BD30's HDMI output is Deep Color compatible, with 4,096 steps of gradation for even smoother, finer-quality images that meet Hollywood's stringent demands, so you can experience movies just the way they were meant to be experienced.
