Fantastic Player, Great Picture & Sound, Excellent 3D, But No Resume Feature

Summary: I got this player so that I could use the 3D capabilities of my TV, and still get surround sound through my non-3D HDMI receiver. It did both beautifully. The 3D discs I have so far are Legend of the Guardians 3D, Meet the Robinsons 3D, and Space Station 3D, and a couple others. I bought a couple pairs of the non-Panasonic 3D glasses, and used those when watching. Picture quality was very good on 3D, and effects definitely "jumped" out at me when I watched.

Summary: Panasonic DMP-BDT310 Integrated-Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player I got the Panasonic DMP-BDT310 mostly because I had read good reviews about and it was relatively cheap. It has built in WI-FI, lots of apps, loads blue-ray disks really fast, great picture,and a dual output HDMI feed in case your A/V receiver doesn't use the new HDMI 1.4 interface.
Summary: Panasonic DMP-BDT310 Integrated-Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player I bought this Blu-ray Player with Wi-Fi specifically to stream to Amazon Video On Demand (VOD). After a firmware update, both Amazon VOD and Netflix work great, which is why I am giving it 4 stars. It plays DVDs really well. I have not had a chance to rent a Blu-ray disk to see how that plays. Unfortunately, it will not play anything off my flashdrive in the USB port.
Summary: On Black Friday I bought the BDT110 with the intention of slowly upgrading my Home Theater. That idea didn't go so well. I ended up selling my 50" Samsung Plasma and bought a Panasonic VIERA TC-P46ST30 46-Inch 1080p 600 Hz 3D Plasma HDTV . Since my Onkyo receiver was not 3D, I went ahead and ordered this BDT310 because it offered the two HDMI ports, one for the sound and one for the video (including 3D). I ran into some an issue which I never found a solution...
Excellent overall, but Netflix performance is atrocious

Summary: The bang-for-buck ration is excellent. A fast-loading Blu-ray player, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Skype, built-in Wi-fi, the motion-sensor to open the tray, HDMI for audio, very easy-to-use menu system, and Netflix and Skype button on the remote... and all for less than $200. But there are two things I absolutely hate about this machine. First, Netflix flashes black for a split second, two or three times in a row. The audio does NOT skip, so this is not a buffering issue.
Summary: This is Panasonic's top of the line player for 2011 and it offers excellent audio and video performance, super-fast boot-up and disc loading and a nice selection of internet streaming features such as VUDU, Netflix, Pandora and even Skype. But bizarrely enough, Panasonic dropped support for the popular Divx audio/video codec this year, even while adding support for MKV files, so if you want to use this as a home media playback hub, you may be disappointed.
Panasonic DMP-BDT310 Integrated-Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player
29 July 2011
Summary: Just received the unit and so far extremely pleased with it. Very easy set up; unit immediately indicated that there was an update to the firmware ready. The update went very smoothly. My TV is not 3D yet so I can't comment on that aspect. I played a few DVD's and used Netflix via broadband and I am very happy with the picture, sound and streaming.
Summary: There are only a few 3d bluray players this year that have two HDMI outs, and this panasonic is one of them. If you have a non 1.4 HDMI receiver and a 3d tv, this bluray player will allow you to: Send true 3d 1080p video signal to your tv, and send true HD audio to your non 3d compatible receiver. Works great so far. I have not tried to 3d convert non 3d bluray yet. Picture and sound all great once settings were adjusted to liking. Plus free Avatar 3d movie!
Great upconversion & Amazon VOD, but problems with Netflix.

Summary: Reason I bought this item: plays DVDs, upscales DVDs, plays Blu-Ray, streams BOTH Amazon & Netflix, and is highly rated on both Amazon and on various tech sites (Wired, Cnet, etc). First blush (2011-0611): The player is smaller than I imagined which is nice. Set up was easy. Turned unit on and got the easily navigated menu system. Some menu options are a tad convoluted but in general ok. The player automatically updated firmware on its own.
