Summary: Have had this unit for a few years now. It continues to work well, for dvd/blu ray discs, as well as streaming (no need for a roku box for Netflix). The remote is not difficult to learn - only had to refer to the manual once or twice.
Summary: First the bad... 1) The UI is pretty bad. The on-screen menu system is a classic case of over design. Too many layers, too much fluff, and too slow to react. Basic functionality has been sacrificed for neat animation. Wasted engineering hours. 2) Far too many built in functions.
Summary: This Blu-Ray player is a small, lean, mean and SEXY machine. I love the small form factor. It easily fits into my media center and looks very modern. The video looks clean and sharp, and the colors are vivid and true. Although, you need to forget about programming with the remote.
Summary: First of all I was amazed at the design. Beautiful piece of equipment. Every easy to set up. The reading of the disc was fast compared to what I have been using. Wireless connectivity was also fast. The remote, though unique, takes a little getting around but once that is completed, its a breeze.
Summary: Awesome player. Load quickly, all the functions are there and nice finish. Quick and easy network setup and firmware updates are simple simple. Only negative is that I miss a display showing elapsed/remaining time but that's a very small negative.
Summary: The first thing that impressed me about this product was the size and design. It reminded me of the first Nintendo Wii. So I started doing research and found out that Panasonic actually makes the best players on the market, winning many awards. Even beating out Sony and Samsung.
Summary: I bought this player after returning an LG that wouldn't make a wi-fi connection. This one connected immediately. I like everything about this player except the remote is a little hard to get used to. The Panasonic DMP-BBT01 is my first blu-ray player and I am definitely pleased with it.
