Very nice Blu-ray player especially for Netflix subscribers!

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.
Excerpt: I purchased 15 of these in a pinch and I have had really good luck with them. I am VERY grateful that Panasonic reverted back to their older remote design. I had many complaints about their touch style remote. It loads quick and runs quiet. I will say this of any product; Run the firmware update before troubleshooting.
Summary: Everything in this player is great except firmware update, because the same model number given to region A and to multi-region player, you need to get your updates from the Panasonic global site. One less star for being pricey.
Summary: Pros- plays blu-rays as it should. Clean crisp video with no skips. I have read others having problem but I have used new discs. I believe if you rent discs, you may have problems. Netflix works flawlessly. Love the Netflix button. Cons- Ad banners on as default. I had to turn them off in setup. Why do they put ad banners in? Somewhat slow in navigation. noisy when loading disc. For a basic Blu-ray and media player, I was not disappointed.
Summary: I got both the Panasonic DMPBDT330 and the DMPBDT230 Wi-Fi Blu-Ray Players for two different rooms. Except for a difference in appearance, these two players are functionally the same except for a two slight differences. The DMPBT330 has an extra HDMI jack to for a connection to an audio receiver to allow for 7.1 audio through the HDMI cable, and the ability to up convert the picture to 4K UHD - or Ultra High Definition - The latest in TV technology at 3,840 X 2,160p.
Summary: The Panasonic BDT-230 is my second Blu-Ray player. My first was a problematic LG BP530. I have been a longtime fan of Panasonic products. I have had good results with them and found them to be very reliable. The BDT-230 appears to be no exception. Out of the box, this product comes with: * The Blu Ray player, of course. * Remote control. * Two AA batteries for the remote. * AC power cord.
