Locks up on Amazon video menus.

Good device wrong product description, NO SKYPE

  • Summary: I couldnt test the player itself thoroughly, but it makes a high quality and solid impression. Unfortunately the device is not skype-ready as explained in Panasonic's product descriptions.

May be a great BR player, not a great browser

Bubo, Amazon
18 October 2013
  • Summary: Unpacked the unit and decided to put it to work right away. I am replacing a Sony BR player that has had problems loading and locking up for a long time. Pros: HDMI to TV and a Tosslink for the Receiver Easy Wifi connecion Set-up only took a few minutes Load time is acceptable Cons: *System Menus have to be walked through *Internet applications Amazon and Youtube look like they were designed for a cell phone again making the menus and content very difficut to navigate.

Terrible technical support

PD, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: The DMP BDT 230 is a good enough blu-ray player but the bad surprise was that I could no longer connect my Sennheiser headset, for this new blu-ray player no longer has RCA audio out connections. Instead it's now optical and requires a convertor to connect the headset. I can understand that technology evolves (it would have been nice to know about this though) but the worst part was the Panasonic technical support.

Great except for the Ads!

Gman, Amazon
14 April 2013
  • Summary: It works very nicely, but whenever I turn it on, it displays ads for Zales, Myspace... and I am sure lots more will follow. I turned off the firmware updates because I KNOW this is how they change ads or make them more prominent. I would give this player 5 stars if they just let me use the player without invading my privacy. One day ad companies will realize the ads don't work.

Player OK. User Manual poor

adsensus , johnlewis.com
27 December 2013
  • Summary: The unit works as expected. However it was not simple to set it up to connect via my Denon 1912 receiver to my Panasonic TV. I wanted to be able to control the player from the TV's remote control (HDMI-CEC).

Ok BD/Netflix player, extras wanting

Mike, Amazon
23 December 2013
  • Summary: As a disk player it's fine, and Netflix works well on it. I was really hoping to project to it using Miracast from Windows 8/8.1 PCs, but that does not seem to work. Also there is no smartphone remote for it, which its predecessor had.

Excellent Blu-ray player but

Ray, FutureShop
18 October 2013
  • Summary: Good: Significant increase in the Netflix picture quality, much better than my Nintendo Wii. My Netflix now looks HD itself. WiFi connected easily and it has never dropped. Flash drive loads quickly and plays everything, as does the machine itself. Load time is fast, the unit looks pretty nice too. Bad: The web browser is very slow and browsing websites is not worth the effort but it's there if you need it.

Good value

Mr. J. A. Harrild, Amazon
12 September 2013
  • Summary: I recently upgraded and got Wi-Fi . I considered upgrading my telly but that was going to be costly. Then I found this piece of kit which is good for multi-region DVD, Bluray and Wi-Fi all for less than £130. How could I not buy it?

Keeps crashing

Ralphster, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • Summary: Picture quality is excellent a very good blu ray player, only thing we have found is that it freezes nearly all the time when you want to change the blu rays. You have to switch the power off and reboot which works majority of the time. Not sure if we have a faulty one, but left it late to return...
