Panasonic DP-UB420 Reviews

Only 90-Day Labor Warranty

By Brian
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-14

I received my player today and was very disheartened to learn Panasonic only backs this product with a 90-day labor warranty (the period for parts is one year). I'd expect a 90-day warranty if this was a refurb - but new? By way of comparison, Sony stands behind their similar UBP-X700 4K player - parts AND labor - for one year. It says something when a vendor backs their products - and when they don't.

Lives up to high expectations created by glowing reviews

I'm not a professional reviewer of home entertainment equipment. I don't test specifications, and I don't obtain and then compare competing products. What I can say is that I've researched what people who do so think are the best current 4K disc players, found that there is a virtual consensus that this is the best of them for less than $1,000 (apart from its brother Panasonic model, the UB820, which is apparently the same except for a couple of additional features that I don't need), and that this player has met the high expectations created by the glowing reviews that I read. Its video and audio performance clearly outstrips that of the Samsung 4K UBD-M7500 disc player that I bought in 2017 and that I used contentedly enough until I recently bought this Panasonic model. I would simply caution you that with this unit, as with any 4K player, you need to research and implement certain setting changes not only in the player, but in your 4K TV and, if you use one, your 4K-compatible receiver, in order to get the best possible performance from the player.

Good all around.

Have always liked Panasonic components due to their quality, simple operation, and reasonable pricing. This player works well. The only very minor issue is it doesn't recognize/play MP4 or WMV files on disc. Fully understand these were not listed in the specs but one would think most decent players would be able to play these standard formats.

Easy to set up. Had no problems at all. Loads Blue Ray discs quickly and the video and audio quality is spectacular! The instructions are adequate. It was hard to find the instructions on how to configure the remote to operate my LG TV, but I finally found it buried in a paragraph.

I have had this player for several weeks now and I am very happy with image quality. I have it hooked up to my Samsung HW-Q800A surroundsound soundbar via HDMI cable and from there to my 55 Samsung QLED tv, also via HDMI cable. I use premium Monster cables. The picture is flawless and the sound is outstanding. Not really impressed with the layout of the remote, but, that is a minor issue. I have no problem with the menu layout. I do all my streaming through my tv via an Amazon Firestick so I can't say how this player is in that regard. Bought it for playing dvd's, not apps and in that regard I am extremely happy. My oldest low-res dvd's look better then ever and my newest 4k UHD dvd's look amazing. This unit replaced a 4k XBox-1X as my main player. That had excellent image quality but this Panasonic is better. Moved the XBox to a different tv because I considered its controller a pain for playing dvd's.

Cannot access internet

Typical set up process, automatic everything. Which will not allow internet access via hard wire RJ-45 connections via CAT - 6 cables. Requiring the use of aftermarket device to accomplish this. Had I known this I would have purchased a different Blu Ray player.

I have one at my main home and purchased a second one for my summer home. I don't watch many DVDs but when I do it works fine. My TV is connected to the internet so I don't need this unit to stream but have used it occasionally and was pleased. It is a compact, lightweight unit that is easy to operate.
