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...
Absence of playback features long expected as basic ruins an otherwise interesting machine
John Dodd, Amazon
17 November 2013
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).
Summary: I bought Panasonic DMP-BDT 230 last week , It boots really fast but it freezes sometimes; you got to unplug it and let it reboot . now another problem comes up, it doesn't recognize my WI-Fi :(
Summary: Ive been a big Panasonic fan for 7 years purchasing four of their Plasma TVs. Their ST60 Plasma is my latest buy it rocks . It received cnet 2013 editors choice 5 star rating. I figured heck I would give Panny DMB-BDT230 a try and was very dissatisfied unfortunately. Cons: 1)Size was to big!
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...
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.
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.
Lost several stars for the annoying Netflix button

Summary: My pleasure at getting this was ruined by the annoying big red Netflix button on the remote control, which I keep pressing by accident, interrupting whatever I am doing and trying to load a subscription service I don't use.
