As part of Panasonic's 2011 range of Blu-ray players, the DMP-BDT310 replaces last year's BDT300, switching its ageing design for a fresher and more modern look. The new model is still 3D-compatible but there's now a new 2D-to-3D conversion function. Plus, you no longer need a separate Wi-Fi adapter, as the DMP-BDT310 has built-in wireless connectivity. Apparently, classic stackable hi-fi-style home cinema systems are no longer flavour of the month. Manufacturers all seem to be following a new trend for sleek, stylish devices seen in the likes of the Samsung BD-D7500. Although it's clearly not the most innovative product out there, we actually prefer this Panasonic Blu-ray player, with its high-quality plastic casing and stylish, lightly patterned finish. To keep things contemporary, Panasonic has replaced the Eject button by a motion sensor, which means you just have to wave your hand (or the disc) in front of the device for the disc tray to open. That's a stylish and practical touch. Like the previous model, it takes three seconds to open the disc tray and 27 seconds to start playing a Blu-ray, which is pretty good. Behind the flip-open front panel there are two physical playback control buttons, as well as a digital display.
The Panasonic DMP-BDT310 is the Japanese company's latest flagship 3D-ready Blu-ray player, taking everything that was great about last year's DMP-BDT300 and jazzing it up with a bunch of new features for 2011.It sits at the top of a range that also includes the entry-level, non-3D DMP-BD75, plus two lesser-spec'd 3D decks, the DMP-BDT110 and DMP-BDT210.Some of the tastiest new tech relates to 3D playback – you get a whole bunch of 3D picture adjustments and 2D-to-3D conversion, which has previously only been available on Samsung's 3D-ready TVs.The BDT310 has a couple of other fresh tricks up its sleeve – it allows you to make Skype video calls from the comfort of your armchair and can also be controlled using an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch with a free app.These new talents join an already fit-to-burst feature list, which includes DLNA networking functionality, internet access and the usual array of picture processing power developed at Panasonic Hollywood Labs.However, it's not only the feature list that's been revamped for 2011. All of the players have been compacted down into an impossibly slim casing (measuring just 35mm high), which not only makes them easier on your AV cabinet but also makes less of an impact on the environment due to the reduction in packaging.
