Very Poor Software / Firmware Programming, Not WiFi Ready

düg, Amazon
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?

streaming not working

Ulrike Sommers, Amazon

  • Summary: We bought this player at Costco, and after about a month of netflix streaming the player quality got worse and worse and eventually said we had a bad connection, which is not the case at all. It seemed as if some internal memory was slowly filling up. We returned the unit and got a second one, thinking it was probably just a lemon. But the second player had the exact same problem after about 6 weeks. Otherwise the player works fine.

Don't buy if you want to watch Netflix-or any other network function

Anonymous, Amazon
4 March 2011
  • Summary: I've owned this Blu-ray player for four months, and in that time I've gotten to watch all of four Netflix movies. Why? Because 49 times out of 50 when I click on "Network" it tells me "Cannot connect to the network at this time. Please try again later." I have cable internet service, I have reliable wi-fi that works on every other device, the settings are all correct when I check them.

  • Excerpt: junk unit that keeps getting slower. the best experience I had with this unit was putting it in the trash can! Might be ok for some but after Panasonic updates the firmware the speeds are dismal. we bought a Roku instead of streaming through this player.

Disappointed

DLSpencer, Amazon
30 December 2010
  • Summary: This product did'nt work from the outset. It would only register "Can't read disk" in display regardless of disk type (DVD,CD,Etc.) Sent back to Amazon and they gave me a $60 credit towards a newer model Panasonic.

Do NOT buy this player!!

TeeMo, Amazon
18 December 2010
  • Summary: All Blu-Ray players will provide excellent picture quality, it's the extra features that make the difference. I bought the BD655 because it claimed to be able to connect to the internet via wireless USB. NOT TRUE! The only way to get wireless connectivity is to purchase the proprietary adapter from Panasonic, which cost more than the player itself. There is nothing on the box that would warn that no other adapter will work.

"Firmware update wipes out Netflix"

keithatcnet, CNET
23 November 2010
  • Pros: Just about everything until the unit told me to update the firmware to v1.43
  • Cons: Updating the firmware to v1.43 (released 11/22/2010) makes Netflix inaccessible. Worked great before.
