Panasonic DMP-BDT280 review

 Review: May 2016  

Rating: 4 stars

In a nutshell: The Panasonic DMP-BDT280EB is an excellent mid-range Blu-Ray player with support for 3D playback and upscaling to 4K resolution. It supports a fair range of Smart TV services including the BBC iPlayer and Netflix, and includes built-in Wi-Fi and ethernet connectivity. You can also stream content from your home network using DLNA, Wi-Fi screen mirroring from a smartphone or tablet, or a connected USB device.



Comparing the Panasonic DMP-BDT280EB vs the Panasonic DMP-BDT270EB, we can't find any differences in functionality. The DMP-BDT280EB is the same as the more expensive Panasonic DMP-BDT380EB Blu-Ray player, except that it doesn't have an optical audio output.

Panasonic DMP-BDT280 features include:

Set up problems - use HDMI cable in the UK?

Asked by Mike Terry from United Kingdom on 17th Sep 2017
Is there online help please?

I used the HDMI connection, had to buy an HDMI cable "as not supplied in the UK" - is there another way to connect in the UK?

All I get is the "DVD page" then just colours but nothing recognisable.

Do you need a 4K TV for this player to work?

Asked by Patrick from Canada on 22nd Jan 2017
I have one now thinking we would upgrade our tv in the future to a 4K but I can't get the player to read standard blue ray disks.


Asked by David Owen from Uk on 19th Dec 2016
I bought this to play DVDs and CDs. What is the point of the Wi-Fi connection? I can get Netflix etc on my smart TV.

Reply by S21 from UK on 19th Dec 2016
Hi David, not everyone has a smart TV, so this player offers another way to get Netflix, etc. If you already have them on your TV, you'll probably never use the Wi-Fi on this player.
