panasonic-dmp-bdt210-blu-ray-player-review.jpgHigh Points
• The DMP-BDT210 supports 3D playback, with optional 2D-to-3D conversion if you'd like to simulate the 3D effect with standard 2D content.
• It has internal decoding and bitstream output of high-resolution audio sources.
• It supports BD-Live and BonusView/PIP.
• The player is Skype-ready and has integrated WiFi.
• This year's VIERA Cast service adds CinemaNow and Napster. DLNA media streaming is included.
• Panasonic offers a nice array of 3D setup options, including the ability to output the checkerboard format.

Low Points
• This model does not include dual HDMI outputs to send separate signals to your 3D TV and A/V receiver.
• It also lacks multichannel analog audio outputs, so it's not the best choice for someone who owns an older, non-HDMI A/V receiver.
• The player lacks internal memory, and Panasonic does not supply an SD card for this purpose.
• There's no advanced control port like RS-232.

Competition and Comparison
Compare the Panasonic DMP-BDT210 with its competition by reading the reviews for the Sony BDP-S580, Pioneer BDP-430, and Vizio VBR333. Learn more about 3D Blu-ray players by visiting our Blu-ray Players section.

Conclusion
The DMP-BDT210 is a good value for someone who wants a 3D Blu-ray player with integrated WiFi. It has plenty of additional features, too--such as Skype capability, DLNA media streaming, the Touch Free Sensor, and a thorough assortment of streaming VOD options. The lack of dual HDMI outputs means that this player is best mated with a 3D-capable A/V receiver, if you want to enjoy the high-resolution audio tracks on some Blu-ray discs.
