Summary: Only problem I've had, and its a near dealbreaker, is the poor streaming quality. If I can get the player to connect to my 5GHz network, and it fails about 30% of the time, HD picture quality isn't guaranteed. The stream will hang, skip, or look like a videotape about 25% of the time. I have no problem streaming on my computer, tablet, or phone on the same network.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable
Cons: Did not meet expectations, sketchy streaming quality
Summary: The only issues I've had were from bad disks from Blockbuster Online. Can't expect this player to play a disk that looks like someone ran a disk sander over it, or one that is cracked from center to edge. It has a suitable selection of apps (Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, two weather channels, Youtube, etc.). It plays well, sounds great. It doesn't make toast.
Summary: Why am I the only one who has the problem of the picture going DIM every 20 minutes. I have the screen saver turned off but I have to click enter every 20 minutes to keep the picture looking good! This is my only complaint, but I will not buy another Panasonic product unless this gets fixed.
Cons: Did not meet expectations, picture goes dim every 20 minutes.
Summary: For the price paid, this machine does all that I've asked it to do. It also has many features built in that I have not got to yet. Blu-ray picture quality is excellent and DVD upscaling is as good as you'll find on any budget model. Good picture options control.
Summary: Slow and rather confusing interface, no top menu button by which one can easily reach the DVD's menu, and, worst of all, its playback is too sensitive. Will not play DVDs tha are admittedly scratched rather badly but that my MacBook will play without incident. Need to build in greater tolerances.
