Piece of crap

joval123, CNET
31 December 2014
  • Summary: Not even a year and a half old. Had to re-boot it often as it froze many times. This time it disconnected me from the internet and displayed "Wireless LAN adapter has been removed". On line help couldn't fix the problem after about an hour and a half. I was told to send it in for service at a cost of $97.00!! Might as well buy a new one. I thought Panasonic made quality products, never again!!

Inferior product

E. Berger, Amazon
15 October 2014
  • Summary: To be perfectly honest, I don't really have very high standards when it comes to things like this. But this blu-ray player is bad enough to get a negative review from me. It's poorly designed - buttons that are impossible to see, stupid "space-age" shape - and cheaply made, and it just functions badly. If I accidentally forget to turn it off and it times out, sometimes it get's stuck with "Bye!" on the display and I can't turn it ON or OFF. I have to unplug it to reset.

Light, fast, precise and good price

Renato N., Amazon
7 October 2014
  • Summary: It is fast, precise and connects smoothly to the network. I use it mostly to watch you tube videos including 3d. There is a feature that allows us to pair a smartphone to you tube and use the mobile as a remote. I yse it also to mirrot my Galaxy S5 and show my guests my pictures and navigate through the internet through the mobile and with a large viewer. Actually if you forgot to buy a smart tv you can choose this player and your tv will turn to be smart.

Very nice Blu-ray player especially for Netflix subscribers!

Gianni Cello, Amazon
22 September 2014
  • Summary: I've owned the DMP-BDT230 Blu-ray player for over a year now and it works fine...most of the time. I use it mainly to stream Netflix movies. I love that Netflix is integrated into the player and the remote control. I owned a different Panasonic Blu-ray player before without the Netflix integration and I didn't know then how nice it is to have a button dedicated to Netflix right on the remote control.

Be Careful Purchasing this player...No True HD 7.1 capability, only 5.1

MC "MC", Amazon
22 July 2014
  • Summary: Be very careful...this unit does not support DTS 7.1 audio..it converts the 7.1 stream to 5.1. Nothing above says this,.. didn't see it until I started to search why none of my 7.1 movies weren't in 7.1...found the answer on page 41 of the owner's manual. (The owner's manual can be downloaded from Panasonic...get it and read it for your self! If you don't have a 7.1 capable system, the player doesn't appear to be lacking and probably work fine. But..note.

or off of USB drives like I do

ken hoff, Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: I now have (2) DMP-BDT230 DVD players. These have worked very well for me. I can't talk about streaming content, but for playing DVD's (BR or standard), or off of USB drives like I do, it is a great machine for the money. I would think the DMP-BDT500 is too. Comes on quick, closes quick, has great features, and for me, watching movies off a USB drive with the DVD player connected to my HDTV via HDMI, it is great. I would highly recommend it.

No WiFi

John, Amazon
10 June 2014
  • Summary: Rarely do I review products, but I must say this unit was a huge disappointment. Purchased because it is one of the few that has Amazon Prime Video and MLB.TV that is reasonably priced. After initial set up, everything worked great. It sat for 4 or 5 days and when trying to use it for the 2nd time, it can not connect. Tried configuring manually, push, pull, "easy" set up, etc., to no avail.

Amazon streaming is very poor

Cookmeister, Amazon
9 June 2014
  • Summary: I've tried using this device to stream Amazon movies several times, and it is always freezing on me, even with a strong signal and a fast connection. At first I thought it was bad just for HD movies, but it froze regularly for Standard Def as well. The rest of the product is good, I haven't had a problem with 3D or playback of Blu-Ray and DVD's - but the streaming was so bad for Amazon that I ended up hooking up my ROKU player instead (which worked fine in the same...

Its Okay

William Pastor, Jr., Amazon

  • Summary: While it's okay, if I had it to do over again I'd go one model higher. Tke 330 has more to offer for a few dollars more.
