Or £109.94 with Richer's 5-year cover.

Manufacturer's Description:
The new Panasonic BD35 BluRay player is one of the first Profile 2 machines to be reeased on to the market. With features such as BD-Live*, it lets users access 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).
Features such as Viera Link allow easy operation of a Viera Link compatible TV and HiFi receiver with a single remote control, when all units are connected via HDMI.
The DMP-BD35 is also 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 x 1080 resolution.

It has 86 five-star reviews out of 109 on Amazon.

A quick google on this model reveals posts on the AV Fourms, going back to Nov 08, so it's not a resent model by the looks of it, and might well be due for upgrade/replacement by now.

That said, it seems an ok player, under a hundred quid and also that "MR" tag, i think is MultiRegion, which means it's either multi region for SD-DVD's or they have added a mod chip to enable multiregion in BluRay ... personally if your interested in the multi region stuff, i'd query the guys in store, as it's only available in store anyway !

heat added!

That's the trouble with copy/pasted descriptions, they're only as up to date and relevant as the time they were written.

What I dislike about Richer Sounds is that too many of their products on their website do not allow you to check for stock levels at local stores. It's totally hit and miss. That said, I love their products and prices.

The BD35 has been superceeded by the BD60.

That said, it's a cracking price! :thumbsup:

The MR is for DVD only - can be done easily yourself anyway, with a suitably preprogrammed remote [it's what Richers do]

Don't need another player myself, but H & R added.

You're quite right - apologies for that. I was at a loss to find anything more up-to-date and that seemed better than nothing.

When you can buy a multiregion blu and sd player for this money I don't kow why you'd settle for anything less. Not voting but I don't think it's such a hot deal.

That said, the 5 year cover in the price isn't bad, if the machine has decent reviews it's probably not such a bad deal for a vanilla player.

A quick phone call to check stock is not dificult, as for the reviews, the problem is they are all based on when it was released, and the standards set at the time by other platyers from that period, nobody goes back and reviews things against latest offerings, to do that you have to research it all yourself !

As for the MR thing, yeah, i thought it might only be for SD DVD, to do the BluRay stuff requires a mod chip adding, in many respects it's easier to use something llike AnyDVD on your PC and a cheap BluRay drive for playing those discs you have from the wrong region !

This player is SUPERB even compared to today's "recent" models. Do not kid yourself - at this price, satcked against the "bush" and "sharp" pricerange this Panasonic rocks your world.

The thing that isnt in this kit is the newer streaming video/google/youtube gadget stuff - which is pants anyways and a waste of time. If you want the latter - get it via your satellite/cable or as built in to your plasma/lcd set. The attempt to add it into Bluray players recently is just rubbish and its better fed into other devices.

I actually have this model myself, altho not MR. I did massive research and testing on these players and picked one up last year in Feb for a BARGAIN price back then of 180gbp with free Blurays from Panasonic. I dont know if you will get the free Blurays (unlikely as the promo finished) but you can always try as its probably some autoamted thing. In some cases they shipped these players with a free bluray of national treasure in the box - you may score that albeit a pretty mediocre movie.

But Simply put - its ideal for anyone who is after a "cinema" style setup and wants to watch film and HD tv discs with a cinema style presentation. Panasonic know their stuff and do massive R&D on this stuff - and matches a viera TV spot on.

At 99 its a pure bargain - i dont regret the price i paid last year as ive had hours of great viewing from this kit. But at 99 its a no brainer really. Im probably going to checkin to my local / nearest Richer's and pick up a second one potentially. This is definately one for the film addict who wants bluray without paying over the odds or over £120.

Firmware upgrades are frequent, so get them downloaded and installed and you are ready2rocknroll. Even plays T2 Skynet and such superbly.

The remote hack - not needed here - works on players but you have to fork out £15 for the right type of remote. You are saving that expense getting it MR'd already from Richer - it will be DVD-MR not BluRay MR - but to be frank, a lot of Blurays are region free altho its not advertised. Case in point - the STUNNING Watchmen Ultimate Cut from USA (not available in the UK at all) - is a must have for fans and its region free - they dont tell you that tho.

This isnt a perfect Bluray player by any means - none of them are really perfect - but the BD35's imperfections are not on the picture, audio or performance side like other players in this price range. For £100 you cant really go wrong on this one. Anyone balking due to the age of the model or such needs to really see one working to understand its really top kit for the price.
