Good, Cheap, Works. Critical Reviews are Out of Date.

daehttub2000, CNET
23 April 2012
  • Summary: Does everything expected of it. The critical reviews are out of date and any problems I had were related to terrible AT&T DSL and 2Wire Modem issues. I purchased this for Christmas 2011 and it performed a firmware update as soon as it was connected to the internet. Netflix and Hulu Plus works like a charm. I do have AT&T DSL and 2WIRE Modem issues related to my 5 wifi devices (not counting guests with smartphones using my wifi) plus this BluRay player.
  • Pros: Cheap. Works. No issues. Nifty no button "wave of the hand" to open/close player. Very elegant and slim space saving device.
  • Cons: Needs good high speed internet wifi signal to work. Sensitive to WiFi modem issues with too many wifi devices.

Lousy WI-FI Connectivity and WORST customer service

Bermwood, CNET
20 April 2012
  • Summary: If I payed myself minimum wage, with the time I spent with deplorable customer service, I could have paid for the damn thing!
  • Pros: Nice user interface
  • Cons: Frequent skips or stops during playback of BluRay discs., Despite 2 firmware updates, the WiFi could not connect to a powerful signal., Countless calls to tech support & customer service resulted in me throwing the unit into the street to be run over,

If you really want to stream from Netflix then move on.

JPReview, CNET
28 March 2012
  • Summary: I've been a loyal reader of CNET (and ZDNet) for over 20 years and wouldn't make an electronics purchase without checking their site first. A primary driver for me in getting a new Blu Ray player (the old Sony works fine) was to get Wi-Fi streaming access in general but primarily to Netflix. I had read the well documented reports of other users regarding "black flashing" problems with this unit and Netflix which was primarily attributed to a firmware glitch.
  • Pros: Decent image quality with discs, and with streaming when it's not flashing black.
  • Cons: Still can't stream Netflix as of February 2012 even with the latest firmware download. Lay out of remote is not very functional as it is far to easy to hit a button that shuts down streaming when you meant to use the toggle.

Netflix issues. Other than that it's alright.

pixel41, CNET
4 February 2012
  • Summary: If you want Netflix, DO NOT buy this.
  • Pros: fine playing a bluray.
  • Cons: Has black flickers when playing Netflix. Usually two in a row. I've got a top notch Linksys E4200 and have verified on the bluray player that it's receiving a N wifi signal, with all bars., Also, the handsfree opener is annoying., Disappointing

Excellent, With Some Caveats

GumbyTheCat "Gumby", Amazon
2 February 2012
  • Summary: Without a doubt this is an excellent Blu-ray player overall, but I have found some things not to my liking. I bought it to replace an old Insignia with integrated Wi-Fi that has been slowly degrading these last few months. Out of the box, the DMP-BDT210 is a sharp-looking little unit. It has the same width as typical home theater components but is only about 7 inches deep.

I will never again buy anything panasonic/technics!

Reboot1974, CNET
14 January 2012
  • Summary: After a week of trying to set this up to play through a network drive because this hunk of junk will not send decent quality over dlna, I eventually snapped and bounced this junk off my floor repeatedly. I have never before felt fury like it and hope to never again. Because of this player I will not have blu ray in my house EVER!
  • Pros: Err, err uhm eh hmm oh it comes with a plug and the box looked nice!
  • Cons: Well just about everything, impossible to setting up the network drive facility, dlna streaming is awful for films.

Flickering Netflix...Why hasn't this been fixed?

deeprop789, CNET
10 January 2012
  • Summary: Got this at Costco for a good price..40 bucks off promotion with net price of $129.99. After reading about the Netflix issues dating back 6 months or more, I figured Panasonic would have corrected the issues by now. I guess not. Not even bothering with calling Support. I'm returning this after two days and getting a Roku. I can't comment on the BD performance, etc. Primary purchase was for NF streaming. I took a chance and I was wrong.
  • Pros: Easy set up. Found wireless network quickly. Had Netflix playing in ten minutes.
  • Cons: Netflix interface is great. Comparable to Playstation 3 which I'm familiar with. Right from the start, however, every few minutes the screen flickers and goes black. The picture comes right back but it's extremely annoying.
