Bought in 9/2009 still working like a champ 4/2014

Summary: This Blu-ray player has worked well and we are still using it. I cannot in fairness compare the features of this now obsolete player with the new ones, but what I can do is let you all know that this player has performed perfectly, with a few updates, and is still performing today as well as it did...
As soon as the warranty ends, your new bluray player does too.

Summary: I received this bluray player as a Christmas present two years ago everything with it worked great however that was only until the warranty expired and further research on the model showed how much Panasonic puts into their products. The error with my player was that it stopped reading any discs.
Summary: Like another reviewer, my unit died after about 14 months. It was great up until then, and I would give it a 5 star rating if it still worked. Tonight I put in a disc, and it says "No Disc". I tried a couple others that I watched recently and no dice.
Summary: My BD60 will no longer play blu-rays - I get a "read error" when trying to load a disc. It still works perfectly with regular DVDs. From reading on the web, failure of Panasonic blu-ray read lasers is very common after not a very long life (and not just one model either) even though the non-blu-ray...
Summary: Bought this on Amazon about a year ago after reading mostly decent reviews. Used it sparingly (maybe 10x) since it was in the bedroom. "No Disc" error started last month. Will not recognize any disc, blu-ray or otherwise. Firmware upgrade did not help.
Excerpt: At 130 bucks this seemed to be a good Blu-ray disc player but I was wrong. When I first got this I thought it would really be something great, and it was at first, but, in time, I started having problems with it. It just has these ups and …
Summary: Make sure you get a high quality HDMI cable for this setup, it only comes with old-school cables and you won't get the clarity you are looking for from those.
Pros: User friendly, great picture quality when paired with correct TV.
Cons: Price is a little high for the capabilities. I see it has dropped $60 in price over the past 3 months, no surprise there. Content takes a while to load. A device that is made for playing blu ray dics should load them more quickly. I do lack patience though! :)
Summary: I would recommend skipping this model and going the next best rated!
Pros: Nice Looking, kind of straight forward set up, decent price. Great Picture!
Cons: I had mine connected directly to my Gigabit router and for some reason it wouldn't do the firmware update, I had to do it manually with a disc... LAME! Then it was causing some sort of white flicker on my TV even when a movie wasn't playing, but the player was just on it's idle screen. The Panaso...
Summary: It took five calls to Panasonic to even get the information I related above. Twice, the customer dis-service rep simply hung up on me when I asked to speak to a supervisor. They did not simply put me on hold, they did in fact hang up.
Pros: Played all formats beautifully for six months.
Cons: Six months after purchasing this Blu-Ray player from NewEgg the drawer will not open. I turn the unit on and before I even touch the open/close button, the unit tries repeatedly to open and close the door then shuts down. The one time I was able to manually coax the tray out and get a disk in, th...
