Summary: Sounds amazing. Love watching movies on it like being in a theater. The only con is the sound level is not that loud so when I watch a movie I have the volume up to 100 and its fine but sometimes if watching tv it can be a bit to quite. But a great sound, easy to put together. Very happy with it.
Summary: Blu ray player slowly stopped playing discs after about 9 months, customer service said to use a disc cleaner, nope, didn't work. They finally said to ship it back and after numerous calls to check on it, they forgot about fixing or replacing the unit. They had it for 2 months before I forced a solution out of them, which was a refund. My Panasonic plasma is wonderful, but the blu ray players suck and the customer service sucks worse. I'm at a loss on what to buy now.
Summary: My main reason for posting this review is to mention an annoying issue if you use this like I do: as a sound system only for my Tivo and smart TV. When I enter the room to watch TV, I have to use the remote that came with this device to power it on, hit OK, and then hit the iPod button. (No Tivo remote is capable of learning these keys.
Summary: I bought this set along with my upgraded 60 inch TV. I figured why not upgrade one and not the other. So, as it stands now, about a month into ownership, there are a lot of positives with this set. First the set-up is easy, in-fact it's probably over simplified. It uses a proprietary plug system for the speakers themselves, which is also color coded. So even the most basically minded individual can figure out how to set this thing up.
Pros: Easy to set up and configure, the sound is great, the Viera technology let's me control it and the TV with only 1 remote control.
Cons: Panasonic started producing these over a year ago but unless you are luck enough to find one that has been refurbished like we were, the price, in my opinion, is still kinda' high...even for the quality you get.
Summary: I'm not a huge audiophile. I'm tone deaf and nearly really deaf anyway. I got a Panasonic Plasma TV and wanted to go ahead and get a blu-ray player and sound system. I'm very pleased with this product. I didn't put the speakers on the towers, just laid them on each side of the TV. It looks great. This morning, I really cranked it up for the first time. The TV is connected to my computer via DLNA and the TV drove the speakers. It sounded fantastic.
