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.

Not really that great

David from Ytown, Amazon
29 March 2011
  • 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.

netflix streaming sucks

inkflows, Amazon
24 February 2011
  • 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!

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.

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.

Good player - lousy internet sound quality

V. Tichy "VT", Amazon
4 January 2011
  • 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.

Stopped working after 8 months

CalvinandHobbes, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • 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.

W. Hohauser, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • 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.
