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)...
Incredible Disc Playback Quality- Viera Environment Capable

Summary: If you just want a disk player you could do worse. For HD-1080p streaming,(Netflix)stick to Roku. Other features such as wifi-network are bargain basement quality and lack refinement and don't stream HD. Over-priced, if you paid $199 get your money back.
Summary: The machine itself is pretty nice,BUT (notice the big but?) the remote sucks. Does everything have to be a touch/brush/swipe/tap/pound pad instead of just having buttons? Instead of one motion;"pressing the pause button", you have to first, push the menu button; search the screen and select your...
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?

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.
Summary: Said used like new in box. The box was far from new. Looks like a zoo had its way with it. The product did appear to be like new. I have my issues with them telling me like new. I have Nintendo games that have better box conditions than this ( 20+ years). Slightly false advertisement.
