Last of the analog video outs, as good as Roku and Apple on Streaming

Summary: I love the analog video outputs which I can RF modulate and send to several small screen TVs in kitchen and basement. Plus the Panasonic does everything else well, including streaming Netflix.
Works very poorly and missing one desired feature.

Summary: It does not have one key feature we have come to expect in a Blu-ray player. Other players remember where you left of on a disc, but this one does not. Otherwise, it works well. After using for less than a year, we have decided to replace this unit.
Summary: 1. Skips even on brand new Blu Rays - forget rentals. 2. 90 day warranty - after that labor + shipping exceeds new price 3. Network performance is dismal to absent. An Apple TV in the exact same spot is flawless on same services.
Summary: If you need something that plays Blu-ray discs and does nothing else, this player could work for you. If you were hoping to use it to stream Netflix or YouTube videos, go elsewhere. This player recognizes my home network, and can access my wireless connection, but that is as far as it goes.
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.
Summary: I purchased this Blu-Ray player primarily to stream hulu and Netflix on my bedroom TV. We use it rarely to watch Blu Ray discs. This product worked fairly well (with a slow, outdated menu system) for streaming these services for about 1 month until Panasonic released a new firmware version which my...
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.
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. Ver...
Cons: Wish it linked to Non-Windows NAS better. Needs longer passwords for Networked Drives.
Summary: PANASONIC DMP-BDT220P BLU-RAY PLAYER (US) LOW POWER CONSUMPTION Impressive low 7 watts playing discs, about 5 watts idle. Less than 0.1 watt off. But wastes 2.5 watts 24/7 if QuickStart mode is enabled.
Pros: * plays bluray and dvd discs * low power consumption * USB NTFS and FAT32 file access
Cons: * forced firmware updates * remote required * poor media player * poor documentation
