Summary: I had purchased this system in December 2012 as a gift for my daughter and son-in-law. The blu ray player broke just a couple of weeks ago, after only a little more than 2 years. Problem is ... we can't find another blu ray player to work in this set-up.
Complete disappointment...a blu-ray player that can't play blu-rays due to lack of Panasonic support of their own firmware.

Summary: Complete disappointment...a blu-ray player that can't play blu-rays due to lack of Panasonic support of their own firmware. I talked to Panasonic through web chat, they have no answers and do not honor their product quality to their customers. They want me to pay them to send it in for repairs.
... HDMI and both the laptop and Kindle stream just fine. Anyway

Summary: Simple solution for those of you experiencing Netflix and/or other streaming issues due to loss of wireless detection - My laptop and Kindle are both connected to the BTT490 via HDMI and both the laptop and Kindle stream just fine.
We recommend you use the stereo option and use the home ...

Summary: Do NOT purchase this 2012 system if you wish to play Netflix movies in 5.1 from a Roku3 box. After MONTHS of wrangling, HOURS on the phone and on their facebook page, even sending the system in for repair, here is the response I received: The Roku3 Netflix surround option is Dolby Digital Plus.
Overall wonderful 10/10 on sound, setup, reliability

Summary: Not only did this system create a wonderful, pure, deep sound in my theater room, but it also was able to hook up to my wifi downstairs. I thoroughly enjoy a wide variety of music, and this system has been able to hit the highs and lows so well.
Summary: Although this is a really nice player, it does not play any of the Star Wars Blue Ray DVD's or the THX1138. The player says that the format is incompatible. Either Lucas screwed up or the player just does not play all blue ray formats from vendors. I'm very disappointed!
It's very easy to set up an the manual is straight forward

Summary: This system does everything it says it does ! It's very easy to set up an the manual is straight forward. The two small speakers that come with it is perfect for that surround sound effect. If you can put them behind your sofa, chairs etc.
regret buying this it does not do what it supos to do its call a blue-ray player its just the name they use to be good
