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.
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: I'm not sure why everyone is so butt hurt about this Blu-ray player, I think it's great. I've had it running for about two months now. The image quality is outstanding and I can only recall one instance where netflix dropped out. That's about on par with my other devices.
Great player for the price. Amazing picture. Faster internet feature than 2011 Panny tv. Netflix button!

Summary: Using with: Panasonic TC-55ST30 3D HDTV (this is a 2011 model year TV) Background: I finally bought a Blu-Ray player to fully enjoy HD and 3D movies on my one year old tv. Before this purchase, I had been relying on Netflix "HD" content and renting HD and 3D movies via Verizon Fios on-demand.
Summary: Dont be carried away by your friends saying their TV is smart. The wifi enable BR players will make your regular TV a SMART TV at a very low cost or nothing. You need a BR player any way - so buy one with a Wifi enabled and you get 2 in 1. A BR player and your TV is SMART!
Pros: Excellent value for the price - Paid $79.95 at Frys.
Cons: No comments - still learning how to use it for web apps
Summary: This is a great Blu Ray player with a nice set of features. Honestly, with Blu Ray players there's not going to be a huge difference in picture quality between low end players and high end players; even low end players can display a great picture on a good TV.
Summary: I did much research before purchasing this item. I knew what I wanted and this fit my expectations. I am a 60 year old woman in a wheelchair and I was able to connect it, program it, and enjoy it all by myself. This should give you some idea of the ease of operation.
Summary: I have this hard wired to my network with a cat-5 cable (Mediabridge 100') so I can't judge the wi-fi capability. I walked through the menu choices at setup and got the firmware update right away. Logged in to Netflix with no hassles.
