Summary: The wireless is really slow to load, and the remote is actually kind of awkward when trying to get back to disc / netflix menus. The Netflix menu is dated, and you have to "load" movies into que via a computer to see your choices. I should have gotten another PS3.
Summary: netflix streaming sucks on this bluray player because the menu only allows you to watch your instant queue. Other dvd players allow you to see your recommendations, search for new movies, and browse by genre. get with it panasonic!
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).
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 ...
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.
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.
Summary: I purchased this bluray player to enjoy bluray movies as well as stream movies online. The player works fine with bluray discs. The internet streaming is disappointing as the sound quality is nothing special.
Summary: This blu-ray player pretty much did what was advertised, but for only eight months. Then it just stopped playing any and all blu-ray discs, but still played regular DVDs. I tried everything (plugging and unplugging, resetting to factory defaults, etc) but all blu-rays just wouldn't play, even...
Slow response, doesn't like Samsung TVs but fine when working.

Summary: The other two Blu-Ray players I own are Samsungs so that's what I have to compare to. The image quality is near excellent but that's where I start to have problems. With the Samsing units all I had to do was plug them into my Samsung LCDs and off we were watching DVDs and Blu-Rays.
