Summary: I was very excited when i purchased this Blue-ray player, the feature list was very impressive. I like that it had wifi, DNLA,Remote control app for you phone and being able to control youtube with your smartphone or computer. The Blue-ray quality is amazing and no complaints. But whats the point of having all these features if they are not reliable. DNLA is very slow and at times it locks up. You have to pull the power-cord to recover not impressed.
Summary: I purchased this player for the internet features. You cannot hook up a keyboard or an Android device to the device. Spend less money and get a basic player and another internet device. The menus are confusing when trying to figure out how to do any advanced features. I have a good amount of experience with connecting advanced devices and could not get it to work. I can connect to the internet but having to use the arrow keys for a keyboard is VERY frustrating.
Pros: good picture, fast start up
Cons: Expensive, Did not meet expectations, Difficult to use, poor location of buttons, remote control is weak
Absence of playback features long expected as basic ruins an otherwise interesting machine

Summary: While this machine delivers a fine picture and nice sound, as a player it is flawed in a number of critical ways. Most importantly there is no "resume" on ejected disks (a feature found in every other disk player I have owned). Thus, you are faced with watching a whole disk at one time or having to start over at the beginning.
Summary: The unit preformed flawlessly, until 3 days after the cut off time to return it to Amazon, forcing me to deal with Panasonic tech support. At first I wondered if the technician on the phone had dyslexia since it took him sooo long to take down my personal information correctly, even after spelling out everything slowly and clearly.
Summary: I do not like how the remote cannot be reprogrammed to control my none Panasonic TV. This is unacceptable for me. In addition, I do not like the adds that come in the form of banners and in some menus as video with sound. I am returning this unit mainly because of the adds.
Summary: Panasonic go to great lengths to tell you about the specifications of this DVD player except for the fact that they have sponsored ads they promote written right into the DVD's menu! Tyson Chicken, tire ads, etc. etc. To add insult to injury, the online support says there's no way to turn them off! A great, basic player but after paying for a product I don't need my DVD player to tell me I ought to purchase my jewelry at Zales!
No Amazon Instant Video Dolby Digital 5.1 or Watchlist Support

Summary: Bought this to go along with my new TC-P60ST60. I quickly discovered the "current" March 2011 Amazon app for Panasonic devices will not pass DD 5.1. If you research this a bit, you will find this is a longstanding issue that Panasonic and Amazon know about, but refuse to fix - i.e. update the app. It is not a hardware issue, it is a software/app issue, as the Netflix and Vudu apps on Panasonic devices pass DD 5.1 just fine.
Summary: I have a bdt210 that I love, I needed another player. I bought a 2013 new release bdt230. Several problems, the worst of which is that the Panasonic iPad app can't find it despite exactly the same hookup as the 210. I will say that the 230 is noticeably faster than the 210 in most functions.
Summary: I like Panasonic goods and have quite a few items in the house. However this was a big let down. OK the manual did advise that the remote control may interfere with another P'sonic piece. If so simply change the setting on the remote. This was advised in 2 separate parts of the manual BUT did not tell me how to change the setting. I contacted P'sonic and was given instructions what to do. Simple!!
