It works great and I find this brand of equipment to be high quality.
28 November 2013
Summary: Well, I have a stack of Technics and Panasonic equipment. I've never been disappointed with anything I bought that was made by this company. I'm sure there are duds, but I haven't landed any of them. This product boots up pretty quickly compared to some of my older DVD equipment. That's nice. The remote handles my other equipment without any fuss, and can be easily set up to avoid conflict with my same-brand DVD player that I still have in the rack.
Summary: I bought this product refurbished and at first after reading some really bad reviews on the item I was really nervous about it working ok. But it works fantastic, not weird sounds or clicking noises all is smooth. Sometimes on the blu-ray it takes a minute to get going but that it.
Summary: I bought this a couple months ago and I love it. I decided to go with the Panasonic due to I have a Panny Plasma to use it with. No issues and it works great. I wasn't even sure I wanted or would use the network features. But, They are a welcome addition that I've used a few times and was pleased with the ease of use.
Summary: The cd open/close button is on the opposite side of the cd drawer. The on/off button is directly above the cd drawer. This makes many, and I mean many accidental turning off the cd player when one only wants to close the cd player. I mean really want kind of retard puts the on/off button above a cd player?
Summary: If you want an inexpensive Blu-ray DVD player that plays just about any format, this is for you. It is also Wireless System Ready, which means that with the proper router and setup you can stream Netflix. The quality of sound and vision is just as good as any other Blu-ray player I have owned (Samsung and Sony), but I would warn that the DVD takes much longer to load than the other players I have used.
Summary: The word "EXCELLANT" almost is not good quite enough to describe this firms products...and..."customer service"...it would be NO exaggeration to "say" they "wrote the book". I recommend anyone who buy products "sight unseen" on the net... crossing their fingers "all goes well"...placing their hard earned $'s and trust/faith that the vender will "play fair"..deal honestly...putting their concerns if things just don't go "just right" .."on the front burner"..
Very Poor Software / Firmware Programming, Not WiFi Ready
10 June 2012
Summary: As another reviewer stated, this unit requires a Panasonic WiFi receiver. The box should not say "WiFi Ready" if it's indeed not ready to connect to WiFi straight out of the box. Within the first month of ownership, there was a firmware update that I installed. It rendered the Netflix function totally useless. As I recall, Netflix didn't work for a couple of days before they issued a firmware fix. How lame is that? Do they even test their own updates?
Summary: I bought this player in June, 2010. It worked very well for a year. The picture was good, the online viewing selection was sufficient for my needs, and I had no problems with it. After a year, things started to go bad. When playing a DVD the sound would cut out, usually once per disk. I would have to stop/pause the DVD and restart to get the sound back. Bluray disks never had this problem. Annoying, but not a deal-breaker.
Summary: The unit works just fine with DVDs, but 49 times out of fifty, when performing the "Network Easy Setting", it finds the network but fails when it checks for a connection to the internet (Error code B019). I'm still trying to find a fix. Verizon tells me to call Panasonic, Panasonic tells me to call Verizon. Update: After another support session with Verizon, the tech suggested that I toss my Linksys router and plug ALL devices directly into the Verizon modem/router.
