Since 2012, Panasonic has had a good line of 3D blu-ray players on the market which are still continued this year. Two new 2013 models have been introduced and are already available for purchase. These new devices are the DMP-BDT230 and DMP-BDT330. The DMP-BDT330 is a bit more expensive, priced at $199.99 with the lower version, the DMP-BDT230, priced at $129.99. In terms of main features, both 3D blu-ray players have buit-in Wi-Fi (Ethernet is also available). Streaming services such as Hulu, Netflix and YouTube are available and the content on a cellphone or tablet can be streamed and displayed on the screen using the Miracast technology. To add even more to the smartphone options, the cellphone or tablet can also be used as a remote control.
Still talking about both models, they both support 2D to 3D conversion, have a web browser along with VIERA Connect. The price difference is due to bigger features the Panasonic DMP-BDT330 offers. In terms of hardware and design aesthetics, the DMP-BDT330 has a twin HDMI output to enable connectivity with devices that do not support 3D or 4K. It also has built-in 4K up-scaling to ensure high quality imaging for those with 4K televisions.
As mentioned before, the two new 3D blu-ray player models are already available and the 2012 DMP-BDT500 and DMP-BBT01 are still ongoing and restocked.
