  • 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. Anyway, you sure aren't going to plug a TV into the HDMI input...THAT'S what the HDMI OUT put is for, no!? Now before I hear a lot of grumbling about "that defeats the purpose of...blah blah blah..." ask yourself this..

Very Happy

James R Dauphinais, Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased the SC-BTT490 as a direct replacement for my existing Panasonic SC-BT100 Home Theater System. The SC-BT100 was Panasonic's first Blu-Ray Home Theater system. The SC-BT100 has wireless rear speakers and iPod support. I had been very happy with the SC-BT100, but it doesn't have any HDMI input ports (making it of limited use with streaming boxes) and I have started having more frequent problems with sound tracks dropping in the middle of watching Blu-Ray discs...

Price changes every day

R. Pompizzi, Amazon
25 April 2013
  • Summary: Just wanted to write a quick review, the price for this item changes daily and numerous times in the last few weeks it's dropped to $299, so don't buy it unless you see it at that level. I saw it there again last night and pulled the trigger after previously missing my chance and now it's back above $400 so just be patient and don't throw away your hard earned money, it will drop down again.

Not bad at all

James, Amazon
3 March 2013
  • Summary: As stated in a few of the other reviews, the "Tall boy" speakers are pretty flimsy in their feel even when fully tightened down. The don't have the mass you would expect from a floor speaker, which can be a bit off putting when you're first assembling them. That said, the speaker components themselves are nicely designed, and I appreciate the almost understated feel of the speakers.

Deduct one star for mock speakers

P. Lau, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: This is a very good system for the price. The bass is deep - flat down to about 50Hz. The high is OK - up to about 10K. The sound is very crisp, though it seems to lack warm. There are many options for audio and video - and neither the manual nor the website specify what some of the options really do. Integration with my Panasonic TV is excellent - but you need to keep the system in "fast start" mode to prevent sound from dropping out when you turn everything on.
