Was in the Preston HMV and saw that they had the Samsung Blu Ray with 6 discs for £99.99. Good for on the high street. Went upstairs and the Panasonic BD45 was down from £149.99 to £79.99.
They had about four on the shop floor. Possibly this is a nationwide deal. Had a quick search if the free DVD offer is still on, and it is. Free Avatar if get before 31st August. Got the Blu Ray Recorder and the free Avatar was in a steelbook.

Online it says £169.99 so seems a great bargain, especially with the free disc offer;0;-1;-1;-1&sku=55316

Saw this today myself, but no free disc offer at this price in store.:( Can't really complain at £79.99 I suppose...
I am after blue rays and this is 149.97 in tescos.
Red hot IMO.
No BD Live functionality on this model though..

The free disc offer is online. For some reason shops dont put out the offer. Go to the Panasonic website and you learn what you have to do. I bought the Panasonic Freesat Blu Ray Recorder (750EBK) and when I looked online there were two deals = one for the 3 free discs and one for the Starter Pack of Blu Ray Discs (BD-R) and the 1966 World Cup. Filled the forms in that I got online, sent to SSAE with a total of £5 stamps and got my freebies about 10 days later.
They send me the 3 free discs twice but no starter pack. Got £20 in trade for the Fantastic Mr Fox and Minoity Report. Was impressed that Avatar was a Steelbook as you can pay £30 plus on ebay for it.


You must buy it by 31st August and send off by the end pf September.

Had I not got the recorder, the Sony 370, and the multiregion Blu Ray player ages ago I would be tempted. Darn this sight.

Does anybody use BD live??????
3. Purchase of DMP-BD45EB from an authorised Panasonic dealer between 1st May and 31st August will entitle you to a gift copy of Avatar DVD Blu-ray only.
you only get avatar with this model, also is HMV a authorised dealer?
HMV is an authorised dealer. I emailed Panasonic when I was thinking of the recorder and they advised online and high street were all okay. I was looking at a few sellers in Ilford at the time.

It is just the one blu ray, but what an offer if you also get the steel book. If you use the Panny with your Panny TV, play your AVCHD from your Panny HD camcorder, or just have the Panny in your bedroom, it makes a lot of sense. And only 0.5 seconds to boot.

I did a search of the model up, which would give you 3 discs, but you would be paying over £50 more which is hard to justify.

If you get the Steelbook like I did (if others could also advise that be great) then it could be a great saving. As the Steelbook was only available on pre order and came with some other extras, you could have to pay £40 plus on ebay. I don't know what the Steelbook is worth on its own, but got to be at least £15.
The website deal is amazing. I bought the BD60 from Argos a few months ago and sent my receipt with £3.60 worth of postage stamps stuck to a jiffy bag. None of the blu-rays advertised were available, but I received the following alternatives ...The Chronicles of Narnia, Prince Caspian/Shine A Light Stones Scorsese/Braveheart XV anniversary edition/Walk the Line 2 disc collectors edition/ The Longest Day. These would cost over 70 quid if purchased brand new. My point is they don't send any old crap like so many free offers. Heat given.
This is a great player. I got mine free with a plasma tele.
BD Live isn't important, it's the film that is important. Voted hot, especially as it's a Panny.

Wouldnt mind putting this with my Panasonic G20 have got the Foehn & Hirsch blu-ray player which was £57 bargain for what it does but is slow to boot.
They had this in my local HMV, but googled it while I was in store and saw all the bad reviews so gave it a miss.

Voted cold.
Checking out TechRadar and TrustedReviews, the reviews do seem to favour the more expensive Panasonic siblings. However the price gap got that much bigger with this price reduction. At under £80 you do get a great picture on a Panasonic, with USB and SD slots. If you don't want internet etc then its ideal. Considering you get a really good free disc, and then the price of a really good upscaling DVD and I think you may plump for this. It is an entry level model, but then you pay an entry level price, backed by the Panasonic name.

Panasonic blu-ray players are also slow to boot, it's very often the only way they lose stars.
I just bought this for £79.99 for HMV in Norwich. Nice little player.
sounds awesome, i just got a 42" panasonic plasma @ 700hz, and looking for a blu ray player, this may be the one :D
No BD Live functionality on this model though..

Who wants BD Live anyway?????
