"Finally a Blu-ray player loaded with features at a reasonable price"4.5 starson by dvdirv
Pros: Great picture, total bitstream support, fast loading
Cons: Remote has weird layout, not lighted. No remaining time display
Summary: If you've been waiting to pick up a Blu-ray player loaded with features, check out the Panasonic DMP-BD30K. With its great picture and easy setup, it's the one to get.
It loads faster than most of my previous Sony players. You won't be waiting long to start your movie.
This player is very cool and features a cover that opens to expose the tray. Great looking unit.
Bitstream support for all audio formats is available, but you will need a compatible receiver to play them all.
The included remote is the worst part of this player. The layout is non-standard and you'll find yourself checking the manual to find the corresponding functions. None of the buttons are lighted, making it hard to read in dark room.
All in all, a great player that puts out a great picture. If only they would correct that remote!
