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
Buyer Beware! The Amazon Instant Video app may be missing from this player!

Summary: Buyer beware! We purchased the DMP-BDT220 player from Costco. The model number was designated as DMP-BDT220CP. On certain blu-ray players with this model number, the Amazon Instant Video app is missing and there is no way to download it!
Summary: I bought this after doing extensive reviews and trusting CNET's recommendation. I was looking primarily for a streaming box that could also play blu-rays. This only qualifies technically. Most reviews cover the features pretty well, so I'll just add things I haven't seen mentioned often. 1.
Summary: This is a decent, if somewhat over-priced blu-ray player. We used it with a 46” LED, non-4K but 3D TV that is about two years old, and it produced very good picture quality with blu-rays, less so with standard DVDs.
Good Basic Player - but too basic and horrible documentation.

Summary: This Blu-Ray player does a lot of things well but it misses some basics. It's OK for playing disks and some online streaming sites, but only if you are willing to sacrifice some other features and have it in a good spot to use WiFi. I'll start with the Cons: 1. IT HAS WORTHLESS DOCUMENTATION!!!
Summary: It was good while it lasted. I've had this player for several years now and it worked great for a long time. Unfortunately Panasonic didn't update the firmware as much as one might expect and it's had problems here and there.
Summary: Bought this unit from Amazon in May and up to the beginning of October I was very pleased. All of a sudden the BBC iPlayer app dispays a security issue dialogue box when you play a programme, that you cannot get rid of!
