Summary: I've owned this player for about a year now and it has continued to work flawlessly. I love the new features added via viera cast, they make it all the more worth the money. With the addition of Netflix this player has proved to be a great addition to my home theatre system. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
Summary: I purchased this player based on the reviews that stated it would access Netflix. This is untrue. I called Netflix when I failed to access Netflix in any fashion. I asked if there was a special disk like the one that is available for the Wii. Netflix said no, this blue ray player cannot access Netflix.
Summary: I receive this Panasonic DMP - Blue-Ray Disc Player yesterday. Very easy to setup i had an HDMI Cable laying around. So i connected the cable and power cord. Pop in a Blue - ray dvd and starter watching the movie. It took no time at all to start player the movie. I did notice when i connect my Hard Drive to the USB port it didnt reconize all the different formats i have on there. Still a grt deal for the money!
Summary: This is my first BR player... well actually third because I returned the first two I bought. For better or worse BR requires that you be able to update your firmware for the latest greatest movies. A player without any internet connectivity will require you to download the updates and burn them onto a DVR. Being able to watch Netflix online, play YouTube directly, and plug in your camera's SD memory chip in directly with slideshow viewing support is fantastic.
