Decent albeit buggy performer

P. Guillotte, Amazon
29 November 2013
  • Summary: I'm a fan of Panasonic video equipment so we bought this player to complement our Panny plasma display. As an audiophile I searched a long, long time for a decent quality BR player with a good analog audio section to hook up to a SET tube amp.

shadowcat, Amazon

  • Summary: Since receiving this I have had problems playing dvds whether regular bluray or 3d. The movie will freeze up & break up & pixelate and sometimes the dvd will not play at all & I will get an error message stating "dvd is not compatible".

A couple of flaws from perfect for the money

M. Daneker, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: The two reasons I wanted this unit, Duel HDMI out and USB audio/video HDD support. What I wanted was to have a second HDMI out to the TV for the occasions we watch a 3D blu-ray, the video-out on the Receiver doesn't support 3D.

Don't buy for Netflix, apps or streaming

  • Summary: It is a nice bluray player with nice features for the money. I paid 160 for the unit on sale about two months ago. However do not buy this if you are going to use it for Netflix, Hulu or any other streaming. The player is just so slow to load or even browse the Netflix menu.

Hate the remote

electrogizmo, Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: It plays well and has a very good picture. However, I should have heeded the warnings about the remote. The touch screen on this thing is the dumbest thing ever. It will elicit a slight "ooooh" from electro novices for esthetics but for functionality, it is prone to errors by the user (ex.

Correction to previous review

sumatramontana, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased the Panasonic DMP-BDT500 in June. Yesterday, September 5th the unit failed. It would not output any video nor respond to the controller. I am not going to try hasseling with Panasonic to get it fixed. We hated the controller with the touch pad.

Great player, no Wi-Fi

Mozo "casmyers", Amazon
8 August 2012
  • Summary: Prior to this purchase, I was quite pleased with the simplicity of Roku for Netflix. In addition to upgrading to a Blu-ray player, I was seeking a unit with both Netflix and Youtube capabilities. The player is very sleek and stylish. However, it was unable to connect to my wireless network.

Beautiful picture, but...

S. Trombley, Amazon
21 July 2012
  • Summary: Everything looks and sounds great. It's therefore inexplicable that the number of file formats supported (in the U.S., at any rate) is so limited. NO DivX, NO .avi (via either DLNA or USB)...these are formats that a $75 player can handle with ease.

good but no prizes

Bacchant, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: On the face of it this machine produces a decent bluray picture. 2 dumb design problems though, firstly the on/off, and the open buttons are on the top where you can't see them!!! And wont be able to use with a stack audio system.

Debatable quality

Mr. M. J. P. Pengelly, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: I have not purchased from Amazon - this is purely a review of the player. Im hoping my 2nd replacement will work - the first played DVD's quite noisily so I returned it. The 2nd wouldn't play any DVD's at all only blu rays. Hoping for 3rd time lucky when I return it this weekend.
