Summary: I waited until all format BS subsided and for the new generation blu-rays to be released. The difference between blu-ray and regular dvds is not as big as the difference between HD and cable, but on this player there is a noticable improvement in the picture quality.
Summary: I've had this player for about 2 weeks, now. It's not for the faint-hearted to set up! Now that I have confirmed that all functions work, including BD-LIVE, I am thoroughly happy with it. Great picture, great sound, and BD-LIVE.
Summary: I spent a lot of time reserching what type of Blu-ray player to purchase. I read a lot of forums and the one thing that kept being said was to purchase one which had; Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. This unit had everything I was told I should look for.
Summary: I am a Blu Ray newbie, and I am so glad I made the decision to go for it. This new Panasonic player is highly rated on CNET and other reviews, and of course, I read the reviews on Amazon. I have a Panasonic 46 inch Plasma Viera 850 series, which is AWESOME, so went with the Panasonic Blu Ray player.
Summary: got this baby about 2 weeks ago and its awesome!!!internal decoder for dolbytrue.hd and master audio awesome.picture quality is on par with both my toshis.the incredible xa-2 and a-35(hd dvd).i agree with one of the reviewers for upconverting standerd dvds i use the toshis.the best upconverters.back...
Summary: With the money we invested with our audio video system we were hard pressed to replace our fantastic processor to obtain the new codecs. This baby solved the problem. Run five cables to your 5.1 analog input and presto chango you entered sonic paradise.
Summary: Since one of the reviewers had a bad experience with this player's quality, I was hesitant to purchase one... even though it was at the top of my list in every other way. I decided to take a chance and I'm glad that I did. So far it works flawlessly.
Summary: Needed a Bluray player that would process all the new audio formats internally and send them via HDMI and this Panny is doing everything beautifully. No complaints, had it now for about a month and everything is working great, no hdmi handshake issues, outstanding picture, great sound.
