Summary: This player is top rated by Consumer Reports and lives up to its review. In addition to providing HDMI Blueray output and separate digital sound output for the home theater sound system, it provides a stream-video internet interface to most video download services. I established an account with NetFlixs in a matter of minutes and enjoyed their collection of streaming video. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to expand their video experience beyond the DVD.
Pros: Easy To Setup, Easy To Use, Great performance, High Quality Picture, Reasonable price

Pros: Attractive Design, Beautiful Picture, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, High Quality Picture
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). Something changed at Netflix (MS software had not been changed), and so the laptop was having some issues with streaming many of the Netflix titles (not a problem prior to this year).
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. Perhaps it will be available through an upgrade, or perhaps there is a procedure to add it, but I haven't had time to go through the instruction book carefully. So far, everything works well as advertised.
Summary: It would be nice to add Netflicks through the player, having to add to the instant que through my computer is ok but somewhat inconvienent. Also streaming blue ray through the player is not currently available in Blu ray, you must us a blu ray disc
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Consistent Performance, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast NF download, High Quality Picture, Stream netflicks
Cons: NF add from comp que, NF dont view in blu ray
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. Yes, I would like Quick Start Up. Yes, I am using an old 5.1 sound system. Yes I would like to set up the networking feature. 3. I have not plugged in the Wireless "donggle.
Summary: Bought this blu ray with a panasonic p46s2 tv. So far, both are working well. I knew we wanted to be able to access netflix, pandora etc., and considered the g25 tv. But someone suggested a dvd player that has internet access, and noted that the combined price of of this player plus the s2 was comparable to the g25. Made sense to me so I went that route. I also wanted a wireless connection, another reason I bought this player.
