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: 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: If you are like me, you don't want to be advertised to once you've purchased a product. Please be warned that this unit has ad built into the menu, an unspoken feature which you cannot turn off. Don't believe me? Go to Panasonic's online support and search for sponsored ads. They tell you it can't be turned off. How far is too far?
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!
Summary: On my third unit now, hope 3 times is the charm. Had luck with other Panasonic players including a DVDR and was hoping for better. 1st one froze all the time and I had to keep pulling it from my rack and unplugging it, firmware was up to date. Otherwise it worked OK even if the navigation is a bit spotty. 2nd unit would not connect to wireless at all, wound up ripping out half my entertainment center and drilling a hole in the case and floor for yet one more wire....
Summary: I bought this unit from amazon on April 10, 2013 and it was delivered on April 15th. From the very beginning, I had trouble with it freezing, first when trying to go between menus, and then just turning it on and trying to get it to do anything. And, when I say "freeze", I mean that it won't accept any commands from the remote nor will it respond to any pushed buttons on the box itself.

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: The darn thing began to freeze when playing discs and streaming videos online. It was always pretty sluggish and slow. You're also dealing with ads when connected online. Well, I'm out of warranty and stuck with a player that no longer works. :( Panasonic customer service is terrible!
