Truncated TV Episodes

Craig and Carol Borchard, Amazon
11 September 2011
  • Summary: The Blu Ray player works fine. Use with Netflix, however, is limited to 100 episodes of any TV show. It is not possible to change which episodes are accessible, they are predefined.

My new Vudu and Netflix Box!!

LondonLover, Amazon
30 January 2011
  • Summary: WoW! Panasonic continues to be at the top of their game. I am an audiophile/videophile and have a "respectable" system that is helpful in comparing features of different devices. My everyday or "go-to" Blu Ray player is the Oppo BDP-83SE. Unfortunately it does not have any streaming video features.

Quiet drive and Wi-Fi is flawless with my setup

J___, Amazon
22 January 2011
  • Summary: Primary reasons for this purchase were to replace a very loud Samsung DVD-1080P9 1080p Upconverting DVD player (purchased just last year) as well as play Netflix movies (which, prior to now I was viewing with a laptop connected to my 1080p Sharp TV).

Works well, decent player

Joseph P., Newegg
19 January 2011
  • Summary: It's a nice player but given the fact that I was really looking forward to being able to use my external 1TB drive to keep my movies on and, therefore, make them readily accessible when ready to view, causes me to be just lukewarm to this product.
  • Pros: WiFi setup was a snap. Love the internet connectivity and, via the WiFi connection, it was simple and painless to update the firmware. Picture quality is excellent.
  • Cons: I haven't yet found an external drive that will work with it. This was one of the main reasons I purchased this player, to play digital movies stored on an external drive via the USB connection. First up was a 1TB external Hitachi drive (with an external power supply). Despite being formatted as ...

Good Blu-Ray/Internet Combo Unit

webgeezer, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: This is my first purchase of a Blu-Ray Disc Player. Since I was going to buy a Roku unit, the wi-fi enabled internet controller was a real plus. I knew Netflix was covered, and I hoped hulu was too, but that is not the case.

Great except for You Tube viewing

Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: Many have hit the highlights and lowlights on their reviews, so I will not rehash what others have said. I bought this player to integrate with my Panasonic 50" plasma tv via Vieracast. To add my own 2 cents though, I am overall pleased with this blueray player.

Excellent BD Player

Anonymous, Newegg
13 January 2011
  • Summary: Make sure you upgrade the firmware. That was the first thing that I did.
  • Pros: Blu-Rays play beautifully. DVDs upconvert beautifully. I haven't found a DVD (or Blu-Ray) that it won't play. Internet connects nicely. I actually like that fact that it has a dongle for wifi, rather than built in. The dongle can be moved in case of a dead zone.
  • Cons: None at this point.

Setting Up, Watching

Christopher J. Scott "unclehoundsthecat", Amazon
30 December 2010
  • Summary: Setting Up Since so many have written about this unit's set up, I thought I'd write my review while setting up the product. Here we go... 1. Connected HDMI cable from old DVD to new Panasonic Blu Ray. Plugged the Panasonic in. Turn on TV. It works! 2. Prompted to input some information.

Excellent for streaming

Michael F., Newegg
24 December 2010
  • Summary: Paired it with a 32" Panasonic HDTV I got from the Egg some time ago.
  • Pros: Got this elsewhere cause another place has a really good price right now. Bought it to replace a dead cheapo and for the wifi. Netflix streaming works great and setup was easy. Let the unit find my router, selected open connection & entered the wep key. Unit updated it's firmware and that was it.
  • Cons: none so far, but haven't tried a blu-ray disc yet.
