Summary: Bought this player two years ago, and wanted to give it a review, since its been a great player these last couple years. This was my first Panasonic player that I ever bought, and would totally buy another. I was worried at the time that it wouldn't go well with all my TVs, since they are all Samsung's, but that wasn't the case at all because I'm able to still use the Samsung TV remote to control it.
Summary: This is my first non-PS3 BluRay disc player. Load time is fine. Updates are painless. Kids and wife have not had any issues with this player. The internet functionality is very good. Netflix works flawlessly (and has a dedicated red button on the remote). Has dedicated Amazon instant video app (google TV does not) with a good interface.
Excellent Blu-Ray Player (for both 2D and 3D) with Great DVD Upscaling

Summary: At this point, I've owned this model for about eight months -- I purchased it from Amazon.com. As with most Panasonic products, the unit's build quality is excellent -- clearly a sign of great quality control. Even more impressive is the picture quality and video processing (this applies to both 2D and 3D applications, although I use it primarily for 2D-formatted applications). Also, great connectivity, as well as having a memory upgrade slot (SD card slot).
Summary: So far this is a very nice unit. I got the 310. The sensor to open and close the tray is a neat factor but the quality of the picture is where it shines. Great dvd player, easy to set up the wi-fi and has many features that I'll not use but they are there in case.

Summary: We have two of these and think that they are the best you can get for the money. Very happy with both. One small item that is a bit frustrating is that when the screen saver is turned off it stays on. Also, the time the screen saver comes on is not adjustable. This results in constantly having to hit the return button on the remote to go back to the menu when playing CDs. I'm hoping that an update to the firmware will take care of that.
Summary: Had a little issue with the setup but once everything got up and going I am very pleased. The audio and video quality and reproduction exceeded all of my expectations. Definitely reference quality!
Summary: I AM VERY SATISFIED WITH THIS PANASONIC BLU RAY PLAYER, ITS VERY SIMPLE TO SET UP, IF I CAN DO IT WITH EASE THEN ANY ONE CAN DO IT, THE QUALITY OF THE PICTURE IS GREAT, MAKES DVD SHOWN ON OTHER MACHINE LOOKS LIKE HD, AND THE PRICE I PAID WAS VERY GOOD ALSO, WOULD RECOMMEND. AND I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW QUICK THEY SHIPPED THIS THING TO ME IN A MATTER OF A FEW DAYS, EXCELLENT SURVICE.

Summary: My original review follows... but I now have a new flat screen TV.... and all is well. So... after researching sites like crazy I decided on this bluRay player instead of a much cheaper Roku. Mind you I do not own one single blu ray. DVD ..YET.... but I am a internet app connoisseur and have cut my cable bill cords and I rely on internet content first and dvd content next.
Summary: A superb machine. The quality of the image is truly amazing whether DVD, BlueRay or 3D discs is loaded. Manual is clear and concise. Helas, apparent offer of a free Avatar 3D disc was reneged on by the advertising agency administering the offer.
