Excellent 2D & 3D images, Great value price
Viewers after the latest and greatest collection of apps should look beyond the DMP-BDT230 and head for a Samsung deck. However, if you're after the very finest picture quality not only from 2D and 3D Blu-ray, but from upscaled DVDs, too, the low-priced DMP-BDT230 is dead centre of the sweet-spot.
Loads discs very quickly
The DMP-BDT230 powers up and loads discs very quickly, and I didn't encounter any freezes or stutters during disc playback. The player passed all of the 480i/1080i processing tests on the HQV Benchmark DVD and HD HQV Benchmark Blu-ray disc (Silicon Optix). For the most part, it cleanly rendered my real-world DVD scenes from Gladiator (DreamWorks) and The Bourne Identity (Universal), producing only an instant of moir in both scenes before it locked onto the 3:2 cadence.
Top 2D & 3D picture quality, Smart TV
The Panasonic DMP-BDT230 costs a little more than the average Blu-Ray player, but it delivers a lot more. Whilst most Blu-Ray players do pretty much the same job, the BDT230 delivers a little extra. Not only does it include 3D playback, Smart TV and built-in Wi-Fi, but it over-delivers on picture quality and audio quality. You won't find better than this unless you're prepared to increase your budget considerably.
Solid, powerful sound, Rich, natural colours
The Panasonic might not be the smartest player around, but it is one of the best-performing: great picture and accomplished sound.
Effective, faithful playback
The DMP-BDT230 is another fine player to emerge from Panasonicâ??s stables. It plays everything flawlessly, includes a very good set of well-maintained apps and it certainly wonâ??t break the bank. Recommended.
Supports BD-Live and BonusView
If your 3D Blu-ray player is going to be part of a complete home
theater system, with all of the audio signals running through a preamp
or A/V receiver, then don't underestimate the convenience of dual HDMI
outputs on the player. You've already paid to upgrade to a 3D-capable
TV and Blu-ray player, and you've probably had to purchase several
pairs of 3D glasses. Do you really want to upgrade to a 3D-capable
receiver, too? If not, then the BD-C7900 is definitely worth a look.
The Samsung BD-C7900 is a speedy performer that displays 3D and 2D content in gorgeous colors. This experience can be best realized when used with a new Samsung display. In addition, the Anynet+ feature can be used so a single remote control can operate the entire 3D home theater system.
Wi-Fi built-in with 1GB of internal memory
The Samsung BD-C7900 3D Blu-ray Player provides excellent video and audio quality on both 2D and 3D Blu-ray discs. Has many great features that make up a great Blu-ray Player, such as Online Streaming and DLNA support. It's dual HDMI outputs is a very convenient feature and its value should not be underestimated. It will allow you to enjoy 3D at home with the least amount of upgrading. It has an Ultra Fast feature that should allow to enjoy 2D and 3D Blu-ray movies as quickly as possible.
Excellent Blu-ray Disc playback and DVD upscaling.3D Blu-ray Disc playback.
The BD-C7900 provided excellent playback for Blu-ray Discs and DVDs, and also functioned properly with 3D Blu-ray Disc content.
Audio performance was also very good. Onboard decoding and undecoded bitstream options worked well, with excellent surround processing using either method.
I did not sense any audio quality shortcomings that could be attributed to the BD-C7900. Audio can be accessed by either analog, digital optical, or HDMI (HDMI preferred).
Great image quality
The Samsung BD-C7900 produces images that are among the best we've seen. This $260 3D Blu-ray player also has two HDMI ports, which saves users with 3D HDTVs from having to make a difficult decision regarding audio output. It's easy to use and fast, and it comes with a good selection of Internet and multimedia capabilities.
Samsung's BD-C7900 does just about everything right, and it does so in a way that you have to question how other manufacturers are doing it. With so many choices for content, the beauty and ease of use of the interface, to the above average performance, it's hard to see why someone would chose a different player.
Oh, right, the cost. That would be a good reason. With a list price of $400, the BD-C7900 is one of the more expensive of the mainstream BD players.
