JIM, IPSWICH

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
A slim, well priced and impressive little box of tricks. Blu-Ray movies running at 24p are beautifully smooth and crisp. The player case is a nice deep black which will match most new HD televisions, and setting it up is quite simple. The real plus with this unit is profile 2.0 out of the box, which means it should be ready to play all current blu-ray content without the need for firmware upgrade via the internet. It should also be noted that the upscaling on this player is OUTSTANDING, some of my dvd's in standard definition look stunning on my plasma. Nice as a starter unit.
Bad points:
Poor connectivity at the back, no scart socket and few component outputs. (only 1 hdmi output) The remote control is a confusing mess with the buttons you will be using the most laid out in the wrong place. When I first plugged it into my television I couldn't get any sound, it took me quite a while to look through the manual and the through the on screen menu before I could find the problem (output sound through HDMI) although I realise that this might just be down to my being impatient!!!!

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
We have not had time to test it out completely but from the little we have seen of it so far, it is fit for purpose and we look forward to using it much more in the coming months
Bad points:
Had a little difficulty setting it up, we ended up having to buy a splitter cable in the end to enable us to play it at all - which is not ideal but appears to have answered the immediate problem, we just hope we will not get a dispargement on picture quality. This was an added expense and delayed the use of the equipment, plus we were really not sure which cable to get so that took the edge off as well.

Tony, Biggleswade

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Superb picture and sound. Good upscaling of good DVDs (but see bad points). Vierra Link control when paired with Panasonic TV.
Bad points:
Unable to turn off DVD upscaling - "low quality" DVDs, e.g. old camcorder recordings transferred to DVD, actually play worse where the upscaling seems to try too hard to improve things. Keep your old DVD player for these DVDs if you have any.

Manufacturer's Description

Blu-ray Disc Player with SD Memory Card Slot
PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus is a high quality image-processing technology developed by Panasonic to precisely process each pixel of the Blu-ray Disc video signal in the vertical direction.
BD-Live lets users access to the Internet to download data such as images and subtitles, and to join in quizzes and multi-player interactive games that are linked to bonus movie content contained on Blu-ray disc. *BD-ROM Profile 2. Actual functions vary depending on the Blu-ray disc media.
Simply press the VIERA Link button on the VIERA’s remote control and select “Player” on the VIERA Link Menu screen. The Blu-ray Disc™ player’s menu will display on the TV screen, and you can begin playback of a Blu-ray disc or select from the Blu-ray disc menu.
The DMP-BD35 is equipped with a card slot that makes it easy to transfer images from an HD camcorder or digital still camera that uses SD Memory Cards. Simply insert the card, and the DMP-BD35 fills a large-screen TV with AVCHD-format video images or JPEG stills in full 1920 × 1080 resolution.
The DMP-BD35 can decode HD Audio (Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD) and output 7.1ch digital audio signal. The resulting audio is studio master quality sound. This signal can be connected to an HDMI compatible receiver that does not support HD Audio Codec.
