    The two biggest movies of all time - what more do you want?

    If previous offers from Panasonic are anything to go by, this is sure to be a hit at retail as they're once again offering the enticement of Blockbuster 3D movies with a selection of their Blu-ray product line.

    To celebrate Titanic launching on Blu-ray 3D, Panasonic will give consumers the ultimate 4-disc box-set of the film when they purchase one of the selected products. In addition to the Titanic box-set, Panasonic will continue to offer Avatar in both Blu-ray 3D & 2D as a joint bundle when consumers buy selected 2012 Panasonic Smart Blu-ray products.

    [​IMG]

    The offer runs from today until 31st December 2012 and is available for the models below:

    • Blu-ray Players: DMP-BDT120EB, DMP-BDT220EB, DMP-BDT320EB, DMP-BBT01EBK, DMP-BDT500EB
    • Blu-ray Players with HDD DMR-PWT420EB, DMR-PWT520EB
    • Blu-ray Recorder DMR-BWT720EB
    • Blu-ray Home Theatre systems: SC-BTT590EBK, SC-BTT490EBK, SC-BTT290EBK, SC-BTT190EBK, SC-BTT282EBK, SC-BTT182EBK

    Oh good, I was going to buy a 3D Blu-ray player anyway. THis makes a DMP-BDT120EB even better value.

    hopefully they have run out of the 3 films from the previous offer (Die Hard, Ice Age & Planet of the Apes) as ive already sent my claim form in:thumbsdow:thumbsdow

    I've already got two of them and would have preferred Titanic in 3D

    • Blu-ray Recorder DMR-BWT720EB
    For my benefit can someone please advise of the difference :blush: Can see 500GB, 1TB HDD and then... do not see what is different? And/or is there a comprehensive Panasonic 2012 comparison chart? Google only gives me 2011 results. Ta

    There is a comparison chart of the 420 and 520 here.

    Product details of the 520 here.

    420 details here.

    The other main difference apart from HDD size is that the 520 has WiFi built in.


    The 720 (Details here) is not really comparable with the above machines as is it in a different class - having a Bluray / DVD recording disc drive.

    I'm considering submitting a claim for a player I bought in June (and already claimed three free Blu Rays for) and hoping it slips through the net. The worst that can happen is that it gets knocked back.

    Ii rang Panasonic about an hour ago to ask if they would send me the 2 discs in the current offer instead of the 3 from the old one as I haven't had them yet (I only sent my form last week) and they said no, I would have to provide a receipt with an August date on it

    Just submitted my claim through their website so fingers crossed they aren't particularly stringent when checking the invoice dates or for past claims.
    Looks promising!

    If you purchased a new player 3 days ago perhaps, but surely no-one buys something in February not expecting the possibility of a new deal five months later

    Beware those sellers of blu ray players offering free Avatar & Titanic blu rays - especially on Play.com. I purchased a player on Friday under the title of free blu ray etc with this player, and noticed on Sunday that there was small print down the bottom saying that purchases of the player through 3rd parties would not qualify, and yet the only way to buy the player on Play.com was through a 3rd party :rolleyes:

    Luckily I contacted them and the seller kindly agreed to recall it from the carrier and refund the amount paid, so its all good. Amazon are doing the DMP-BDT120EB for £109, which is £15 cheaper than I was going to pay anyway - and it will qualify for the offer!!

    Incidentally, does anyone know what the difference is between the BDT120 and the 220? - apart from one costs £40 more of course!!??

    Does this mean that Panasonic have once again got some sort of monopoly over the release of Avatar 3D?

    If so, that's a real kick in the teeth for those of us that have been waiting years for this title to get a general release. :mad:

    i do have a copy, but i want them to release the version with all 3 versions of the film in 3D, but that might be held back until avatar 2 is out which is likely to be 3 years away!...

    I agree on that score! I wish they would learn, but I guess Panasonic pay so much to the studio...

    I honestly believe Panasonic would have been better off if they had let Avatar go on general release.

    I believe the title would have single-handedly sparked a much bigger interest in 3D technology and consequently, cause a surge in sales for all manufacturers as well as leaving many more people with 3D tech in their homes. Subsequently, this would result in people purchasing more 3D titles to demo to their friends, which, in itself, would cause a domino sales effect as more people are introduced to the technology.

    Just my thr'pence! :hiya:

    Thanks Steven for your answer - its fine by me because I have gone the hard wired route anyway :D

    My BDT120 arrived yesterday from Amazon, and the first thing I noticed when compared to my Philips BDP3000 was the quality of the surround sound - really excellent - and I registered and got my email saying that the blu rays would be dispatched after the release of Titanic!

    A great 3D capable player with the free blu rays for £109 - now thats what I call a bargain :thumbsup:

    Both disks arrived in the post this morning :smashin: - the email said they would be dispatched within 45 days of the release of Titanic, so I'm impressed with their speedy dispatch!

    In all, a cracking blu ray player, Avatar & Titanic for £109 - a bargain methinks!!
