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. My only issue is that it can take a long time to connect to wireless, but once you do, it works well. Love the small size and functionality. Would recommend it to others.
Summary: Very compact and easy to mount if using in an RV or installing in a custom application. Full featured and works as good as the full size units. Not a fan of the remote's touch pad. Means you can't use the blu ray player for CDs because without the TV on, you can't see the on screen remote display, so you don't know what virtual buttons you are pushing.
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. This player has all kinds of apps and features that I will never use and which I suspect pretty much no-one uses. It's a blu-ray player, that's all I really want it to do. Is that so hard?
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. It will take you hours just to enter your password.
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. Love the unit. Haven't tried the 3D as yet.
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. Some others complained about the remote but it works fine for me. Would buy again.
Summary: The low: the packaged remote. I have been using computers for decades, and I still couldn't make the remote's track pad work reliably. It's a great concept, but the execution is flawed. Fortunately: The saving grace: it's a standard Panasonic, which means almost any other remote you own can be made to control the DVD player. I used the remote from my LG LCD TV - the manual covers how to make it control a Panasonic DVD player, and 5 minutes later we were in business.
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. I had a sense that this was true because I've often walked into a Best Buy and seen the Panasonic 3D floor demo. I have to say, it is very impressive to watch.
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.
