Summary: Read reviews and picked this product for function and price. Had no problem setting it up and using it. Only weak point is you have to buy a $100 camera to be able to use Skype. I won't be using the Skype function with this unit because of the cost.
Close your eyes and listen. Close your ears and watch. When you discover that this thing is so inexpensive, you'll wonder why you ever thought about buying anything else!

Summary: After years of searching and finally buying the pieces of my home entertainment system, I was missing the DVD player. I thought that this would be a difficult choice, but found that the reviews for this device were excellent from a few trusted sources, including the AVS forum. Only a few on Amazon exclaimed that an OTA update had "messed up the Wifi and Netflix." Apparently Panasonic listened and corrected it, mentioning it in their updates. - 1.53.
Pros: Absolutely stunning 24p play back. Networked Apps are flawless (wired). Very customizable. Unbelievable DLNA capability. Ability to skip the unskippables in a DVD. Overall professional onscreen GUI. Audio Quality is surprisingly very good. Upscaling as a customizable, menu driven item. Very Apple-esque.
Cons: Wish it linked to Non-Windows NAS better. Needs longer passwords for Networked Drives.
