Summary: BUYER BEWARE!!! If you are buying this blue ray to use for accessing Netflix or anything else wirelessly, buy a different product. There are two major problems. 1. The wireless connection to your router will drop regularly and will not reconnect.
Summary: When it works, it's great BUT 1. From time to time it just stops in the middle of a Netflix streaming. I still get the same streaming on my computer at the same time, but Panasonic insists that the problem is my router. The only way to recover is to shut off and UNPLUG the Panasonic unit. 2.
Summary: Honestly like everything about this blu-ray player except that it locks up/freezes/looses internet connection every time I play Netflix. Pros: lightweight, low profile Sleek Blu Easy display to read Easy remote to use with just right pressure Closed Caption on Netflix Can be customized for several...
Summary: On May 5th we bought this Blu-ray player because of the terrific reviews here and on Cnet, and our desire for a "richer" Netflix browsing experience as compared to other Blu-ray players. Most of what is said is true - it's actually pretty nice.

Summary: I purchased this Panasonic BDT220 because of all the great reviews it got here. Unfortunately, this was the lemon of all lemons. I recently set up my wireless network with a bridge so I could get a "wired" connection for my old Insignia wifi bluray so it would play Netflix faster.
Summary: I'm not happy with this unit. It is simply not user friendly. It was purchased primarily for streaming HD content to my 42in LCD. There are huge delays related to using Netflix. From the Panasonic home screen you have to press the Netflix button.
Summary: I just bought the Panasonic DMP-BDT220 (from Costco admittedly; better price) and was looking for a player with built-in WiFi to stream movies, Netflix, Hulu, etc. On initial setup it asked me to update the firmware to the latest version- easy enough.
Summary: I bought this for this thanksgiving and found it to be very primitive compared to Sony's. There is no option to rewind, forward a video while watching YouTube. There is no option to login to YouTube as well. It also doesn't list the recent searches. These are available in Sony.
