Summary: I purchased this Blu-ray player on sale through Best Buy almost a year ago after my previous one (a Samsung) stopped transmitting video. I was able to plug this in and it walked me through the setup step by step. My only trouble was with modifying the application screen, which after pulling out the instruction manual I was able to easily remove apps I wasn't going to use and add the ones I would and put them into places to make it easier for me to maneuver.
Pros: Simple, quick setup, Easy navigation, App screen easy to setup/modify (once you read the instructions)
Summary: I purchased this Blu Ray due to reviews last year at this time. It has run solid for the past year. To harp on the simplicity of the menu system, my then 4 year old, now 5 year old, can get to Netflix streaming and operate a disk without asking for any help. That tells you the ease of navigating. We have had no wireless issues as described by others reveiwers. I had no issues at all with the device.
Pros: Very easy to use., Menus look great., Amazon Prime works great., Netflix good once in a movie or tv show.
Cons: Netflix menu interface is slow and tedious., Customer support regarding Netflix menu interface is a joke.
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. Only a few on Amazon exclaimed that an OTA update had "messed up the Wifi and Netflix." Apparently Panasonic listened and corrected it, mentioning it in their updates. - 1.53.
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. Very Apple-esque.
Cons: Wish it linked to Non-Windows NAS better. Needs longer passwords for Networked Drives.
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! No need for ROKO apple TV etc. Got this from Frys for $79.95 after christmas sale. Earlier this week (12/30/12), or still offerred at the same price.
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 was purchased to replace my only 3 year old $300 S350 BD player that could not play newer discs due to lack of firmware support. Have not had a single issue since I bought this about a week ago. Playback has been perfect and startup times are more than acceptable. The fact that I can connect through WIFI for my Netflix streaming is just icing on the cake. Loving this player so far, would definitely recommed it, especially ath this price point.
Pros: Plays all my BD's, which my SONY S350 could no longer do. WIFI setup is easy and works well, streaming services a great perk
This Blu ray Player ROCKS! Its the best of its class!

Summary: Before I purchased this Panasonic DMP-BDT220 WiFi Blu-Ray DVD Player, I had researched virtually every player available on the market. There's a lot to pick from, but I wanted to find the player that had the best all-around features, and a great price that would fit my budget. And after looking at a dozen or so different players, I concluded that this Panasonic player was the best pick in its price range.
Pros: Picture quality is superb,, Menus look pretty good and are easy to navigate,, Loads fast and works well,, Remote is simple and easy to use,, Netflix works good.
Summary: I bought this blue-ray so I could play certain video files without the trouble of converting them.So far it has taken every disc that I have thrown at it.As for 3d I have not tried it so I cannot comment
