A decent bluray player with some design issues that need improvement.

Summary: I purchased this unit based on overall reviews and the included feature to adjust 3d effect depth. I sit about 6 feet from my 55" 3DTV and most 3d movies are authored with insufficient depth for sitting this close. The built in adjustment feature solves this problem pefectly. Unfortunately instead of remaining a static setting, it resets when you put a new disc in the unit. Very annoying.
Summary: I love Panasonic quality and value anyway but this exceeded all my expectations in every regard. Cannot say enough about how easy it is to watch Amazon Intant Videoa because this flawlessly connects to our WiFi and rarely of ever has connection issues except what is beyond its control.
Dodgy remote, strange DVD image quality - amazing blu ray

Summary: First thing you'll notice is this wee blu ray player is tiny! Like the height of a deck of cards and about six inches deep. The small form factor is aided by the fact that it has no tray and it pulls in the disc like the Nintendo wii does. Personally I have no problem with this but some people may prefer a physical tray - I don't know if the fact that this unit omits a tray that it would allow you to wall mount it, but that may be something to look into.
Agree with others, the "fancy" remote is HORRIBLE.

Summary: The bottom-line is this, the fancy touch-pad remote is so UN-user-friendly that it nearly ruins the whole purchase. I like the look of the player, especially the tray-less disc feature (it works like your car CD player, grabbing the disc to play)... but there are even OTHER issues, about Blu-Ray in general... which are killing the whole Blu-Ray market. For example... many discs force you to watch stuff you don't want to watch...
Summary: After purchasing a Panasonic plasma TV my old surround sound didn't have HDMI input/outputs. This is why I purchased this product. After set-up I started noticing intermittent problems. Occassionally when changing channels from a standard 480i format to a 1080i channel, the picture would go blank and nothing would resolve the problem until I powered the TV and the surround sound system down. I run my cable box to the DMP unit via HDMI cable and HDMI cable to the TV.
Summary: I have been putting off upgrading to Blu-ray for years waiting for my DVD players to fail but I finally broke down and had my wife order this Blu-ray player for me for Christmas to use in my home office. I did the research and found that this player has the identical firmware as the Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Integrated Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player , Panasonic DMP-BDT500 Integrated Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player and Panasonic DMP-BBT01 Integrated Wi-Fi Slim, Stylish 3D Blu-Ray DVD...
Summary: I bought this Blu-Ray player along with Panasonic's ET5 television and I'm not a happy camper. First of all, the lack of real buttons on the remote is a real problem. Slide your finger up along the edge to pause? Or is that how you select play? Who thought this was a good idea? I found that you can get a replacement remote intended for the DMP-BDT220 that has buttons and works with the 320. But, that's $20 I should not have had to spend ....
Save some money and hassle and get the BDT 220 model

Summary: This machine is exactly the same as the 220 model but it has 1) a slot loading drive and 2) a fancy remote with a touchpad and minimal buttons. No real complaints about the slot loader. It looks sleeker but it's otherwise immaterial. I would note that there's a flip-down panel on the front and mine broke the first week under normal usage. Now the panel is stuck in the down position which ruins the sleek look they're going for. Pretty poor design and engineering.
Summary: I don't often give up on products, but I have to admit defeat for this product. The player was nice and worked well, however, the remote ruined the whole experience. I kept getting frustrated and upset. I have to send this back just because the remote is so bad. Please stay away from this product, I wish I would have listed to other reviewers.
Summary: Here's a story about the BDT320 that I hope helps you decide. I purchased this product about three months ago. Since almost day one, it consistently drops the wifi Internet connection every time I am watching Netflix. I have repeatedly called Panasonic tech support to resolve the issue. In order, here's what they had me do: 1. Delete all my settings and re-configure the device.
