Product Description

You can experience great movie quality with the ultra-fast booting DMP-BD87 Full HD Blu-ray Disc player. After starting the player, the time it takes from launching the menu to playing a disc is much shorter than in conventional models. The BD87 also allows for smart home networking (DLNA) and provides access to IP VOD, a targeted internet solution that offers access to Netflix, CinemaNow, Vudu, and YouTube.


The BD87 is compatible with NTFS (NT File System) format external hard disk drives, so you can enjoy music (FLAC, MP3), photos (JPEG, MPO), and camcorder video content (AVCHD, MP4) archived on an external HDD. The BD87 is also DLNA-certified so it is easy to use with your home network. Share and enjoy digital photos, music, and videos by simply connecting to a home network (LAN). You can also install a special app on your smartphone and access a DLNA-certified PC via a Wi-Fi router in another room. Access, browse, and view media stored on the PC server while in another room.


To personalize the home theater experience, the new multi-user mode on the BD87 allows you to register four users and each can record individual favorite settings. You can select a personal icon from 16 pre-installed images, or photos from an external source. You also have the option to customize the home screen with any image you choose.

Built in Wi-Fi

A Wi-Fi system is built right into the main unit of the BD87 so you can enjoy VIERA Connect and BD-Live content without having to connect the Blu-ray player with a LAN cable or wireless LAN adaptor. *BD87 only compatible with Netflix, CinemaNow, Vudu, and YouTube on VIERA Connect.

The panasonic Blu-ray player is my third, which I got because each company seems to have contracts or agreements with different services. I made the mistake of buying 2 players from the same company (LG) before I knew that, as part of a larger project to get rid of my cable. Because the LG players offered a subset of available material, I got a player from another company to broaden the options. Like the LG, this player offers Netflix and Amazon on demand. It also provides hulu and vudu (if you subscribe). It can be used wired or as part of a wireless network, and has hdmi and usb inputs.

Set up was relatively easy (but for the plethora of cords and connections from the millions of other devices we have hooked up). It is also relatively easy to use, although somewhat less intuitive than some of the other players we have (e.g. it took me a good half hour to enter my login for Netflix). Netflix takes a little longer to load than it does on the LG, but streaming was very smooth, and uninterrupted (which probably has more to do with my teen being offline than with the player itself).

I did not notice any difference in the loading speed vs. my LG, although as noted earlier, Netflix took a little longer to load up. I would say that this is about average as players go, maybe a little better than a generic blu-ray player because of all the connections and options. There was not a single feature which stood out that impressed me or would make me recommend it over the LG or Phillips. The three cost roughly the same, and all 3 companies make quality components. I would say that your choice of player may be determined by the content that you want as each company provides a slightly different set of options.

The blu-ray player itself is average.

The first one I purchased froze as I was entering in the wi-fi password to join a network. After that the system never recognized the internal wi-fi adapter and had to replace the entire player unit. I decided to give Panasonic the benefit of the doubt and received another of the same unit. The unit always recognized the internal wi-fi adapter, but it could not even connect to an unsecure network whose access point was 2 feet away

I am absolutely stunned and floored about the difficulty I had from this Panasonic product and would not trust or recommend this product to anyone.

Streaming Netflix works very poorly. It seems to run into network problems 3 out of every 4 tries. A 6 year old laptop placed right next to it gets a good wi-fi connection and can stream without problems.

Navigating the menus is painfully slow, and sometimes locks up. Once it completely froze up and wouldn't even power off. After 5 minutes, I needed to unplug it just to get it to shut off.

Returning it only 3 hours after the package arrived. Here's hoping that Amazon's return process is as painless as the web pages imply. I've never had to use it before.

After dropping all my premium cable channels, I bought a Blu-ray for online Netflix access. My first Blu-ray purchase didn't have WiFi, so I had to hook it into one of my internet ports. It was time consuming and never worked properly. I found this Panasonic (my experience with Panasonic products has always been positive)for $112.00, and it has performed perfectly in every way. The set-up was very simple, and I've had a few firmware updates that have downloaded with no problems at all. It's an excellent product for an extremely reasonable price.

Great player for the money. I don't use the streaming features right now,as I already have a full set of apps on my 55" Panasonic LED TV. Figured I'd get the features anyway, however, since this will likely move into another room in a year or so, and it was still inexpensive.

The picture is great, definitely an improvement over the Sony it replaced. Even makes my DVD's look Blu-Ray quality.

Great value for the price.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I finally got on the Blu-Ray bandwagon a couple years ago once the HD format war was settled in its favor. However, I wasn't prepared for the complexity of Blu-Rays compared to regular DVDs. I figured that one Blu-Ray player was as good as another, but a couple of missteps involving cheap models showed me how wrong I was. Certain discs with more complex content had problems playing, or wouldn't even load at all on bargain players. So I took a risk on the inexpensive Panasonic DMP-BD87 - would it do the trick, or falter? Thankfully, it was the former - at least when it came to discs.

For those of you who hesitate to order electronics on the web, you might as well face the fact that it's becoming more of the norm, especially as the big box stores close their doors. After being burned by cheap players from a brick-and mortar outlet, I bit the bullet a couple of years ago and bought an Oppo through Amazon because it got great ratings and I couldn't find one at a store nearby. It worked fine out of the box and so far has been an excellent primary player. That positive experience ended my fear of online electronics shopping, so when I decided to get a relatively simple and inexpensive bedroom player the Panasonic fit the bill, in part because of a good review of another Panasonic model I read in "Home Theater" magazine.

When the Panasonic BD87 arrived, I connected it via an Amazon HDMI cable (great cable for the money, by the way) to my Denon receiver, put the batteries in the remote, and went right to the Setup menu. The non-backlit remote is uncluttered and about half the size of my Dish and Denon receiver remotes. Although I can't say that the cross-shaped GUI menu system was the most intuitive I've seen, I was still able to configure the device without much effort.
