Summary: Had this unit since December 2009. A bit of a pain to setup, due to relatively confusing menus and options. Picture and sounds are not bad actually, but it took a bit of tuning to get it so. The room is about 20ft x 25 ft, 16 ft cathedral ceiling, with the speakers mounted about 8 ft high. Right now I have is setup to play the DVD, and accepts external inputs from an old PC for some P2P television, the boys Wii, my AppleTV for the Netflix.
Summary: We were disappointed when setting up in our family room. Replacing a 10+ year old Denon receiver and Bose speakers. It made us realize that the old system was actually still pretty good. The Panasonic sound system was weak and sounded like tin cans. We tried different settings, but never happy. We went back to our old system. Rather than return, we setup in our Master Bedrooom. A smaller room, it works better and an improvement from the TV's speakers.
Summary: This product has a very clean output sound. The high-frequency sound is very good but the low-frequency output is not qualified. I then buy the upgraded system SC-BT300. SC-BT200 is okay if your ears are not picky.
Great picture but don't advertise as wireless rear speakers

Summary: Panasonic, and the retailer I bought this from, advertise it as having wireless rear speakers. Good luck finding the wireless speaker kits. I could not locate any online, and Panasonic was of little help. I guess the kits will eventually be available but who knows when. Panasonic should be ashamed of itself for advertising it as they do. They should say something like "feature/parts available around xx/xx/xxxx" or something like that so people are informed UP FRONT.
