Summary: I know everything must mimic an iPhone these days but jeez-louize, that "Touch Pad Remote Control" is a complete horror show. I don't want to have to "get used" to some gimmicky interface, spending hours dealing with an unnecessary learning curve.
Awful Remote Control (Touch Pad not Full Function)
5 February 2013
Summary: This model does not come with a full fuction remote control. It comes with a touch pad version. To use a function you must press a "KEYS" key. Then select one of the 3 types of KEYS screens displayed on the screen.
Save some money and hassle and get the BDT 220 model
21 October 2012
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Bought this unit about a month and an half ago. Excellent picture, set up for video easy. Never would stay connected to my home network. Ate a disk, and even with several conversations with tech assistance, could not get the disk out of the machine.
Summary: The first unit I bought worked well much of the time, but had intermittent loss of audio on HDMI. I returned it and got a replacement. The replacement died immediately. The WIFI would work for about half an hour and then go dead. So I'd say this particular model has major design problems.
Ok product when it was working - terrible customer service!

Summary: The Blu-ray player worked great for about two month, then one evening it stopped playing in the middle of a movie (rental) and wouldn't eject the DVD. Two weeked later (under warranty), and many hours dealing with Panasonic's inexperienced and unprofessional customer service and $35 dollars in sent...
Summary: I have several streaming devices including Western digital Live TV plus running custom SW. I have 55" Vizeo 240 Hz 3D tv, 52" Phillips 60 hz tv, 42" Vizeo 240 Hz tv. I have dedicated streaming computer with 4 terabyte HDD. I have many different file types and sizes.
Summary: The player was beautiful, easy to set up. Then I put in disc one of my brand new $80 Star Wars blue ray set. The player growled for 30 to 40 seconds, said it could not read the disc, tried and failed to eject the disc and turned itself off. For 3 hours, I attempted to make it eject the disc.
