Panasonic DMP-BDT110 review

Price when reviewed : £135

A fast and easy-to-use 3D Blu-ray player, but the online portal could do with updating.


You can hook the DMP-BDT110 up to your network using the Ethernet port. Wi-Fi isn’t built into this player, although an optional adaptor can be plugged into the rear port, which is also designed for the optional Skype webcam.

A built-in media player lets you stream videos, music and photos from a UPnP server on the network. It has a basic, but simple interface and worked with the majority of our test files. Our HD MKV file would occasionally pause. However, playing the same file from USB storage connected to the front of the player fixed this issue.

It’s a bit of a shame that the DMP-BDT110 uses the older Viera Cast internet portal, rather than the newer Viera Connect as used on the latest TVs. With YouTube, Picasa Web Albums and AceTrax video central the stand-out features, this portal suffers a little from not having access to on-demand TV, such as BBC iPlayer,

For 3D films the player has a couple of tricks up its sleeves. Foremost is the option to add a frame round the image. The main picture then fades into this frame, keeping it from touching the bezel and helping to improve the 3D effect. We quite like, but you don’t have to use it if you think it’s a gimmick. There’s a 2D to 3D conversion mode, but the results are very mixed and we didn’t feel like the end results were an improvement over the original. Our advice is to watch 2D footage in 2D and 3D footage in 3D.

For a 3D Blu-ray player the DMP-BDT110 is decent value, coming in cheaper than the Sony BDP-S480. However, that player also supports iPlayer and Love Film, so the choice isn’t quite as clear cut. If the internet portal’s not of much interested, this is a brilliant choice for anyone that needs 3D.
