Summary: The quality of these speakers is spot on for the price.' Everything sounds really good for this price, including the Dolby Surround sound integration. The only shortcomings are mostly software related. For example: the unit does not automatically accept the ARC connection when switched on... Instead it switches the tv to it's video output for Blu-Ray/Dvd to play whatever is in the tray. Also I cannot seem to find the area to disable the auto-shutoff in the settings.
Summary: The sound is excellent in any mode, however I need to turn it up to at least 35 - 40 to hear anything. It has awesome picture quality using either standard DVD's or Blu-Ray disc. I haven't used the 3D function as of yet. Small, stylish and powerful. The internet apps are amazing, wish I could add additional. Upon setting the system up I found that I needed to purchase an optical cord to hear the tv in surround sound.
inexpensive easy to setup - watch out inaccurate manual

Summary: Setup was really easy. Well, I found the "easy setup" annoying compared to the traditional, poke around and change what I need. What this unit has on the back: 3 port RCA composite (Yellow/Red/White) hmdi out port (with Audio Return Channel support) ethernet port color coded plugs for the 6 speakers. power Minor Complaints: 1)I hate firmware upgrades. Mainly because I'm nervous of "frying" a device by impatiently interfering with it's update.
Summary: I'm really happy with this product. Sound quality is really good, the small speakers don't take much space and the features provided (internet apps and all that) are nice. The only down side in my case is that for some reason I can't get Netflix to work. I'm in Costa Rica and everytime I try to access Netflix I get this error message saying only the most recent versions of this product can be used outside the USA and Canada...
Summary: This unit doesn't have it all, but for $240 you can't beat what is does offer. 3D Blu-ray with selectable outputs of checkerboard and side-by-side. Even turns 2d to 3d, but I haven't tried this yet. Includes wireless LAN with Netflix, Pandora, Hulu Plus, Amazon Video, YouTube, Twitter, and several other non-useful apps.
great sound, the value was definatly worth the purchase

Summary: sounds great but i wish i could control the volume on each speaker but for 120 it is worth my money. the base speaker sounds ok but a powered sub would have been better. it doesnt sound like 1000 watts but still for a bedroom the item is perfect. It wou ld be a great xmas present for a teen wanting a descent sound for there room or a person on a budget.
Excellent HTiB System for Bedroom at a Great Price
GaryPen "Nobody you know", Amazon

Summary: I am amazed at how good these low-priced HTiB systems from Panasonic sound. (My previous BT230 sounded a little better. But, this one is still very impressive.) Obviously, this is not going to sound as good as a dedicated AVR with full-size speakers and a powered SW. But, as a bedroom system, it is phenomenal, especially at a cost of two and a half spendolas. Plus, it has outstanding picture quality with both Blu-Ray discs and standard DVD's.
Summary: The speakers in this unit are much smaller than I thought they would be. The sound is adequate for an office or other small space, but not for a main system. The DVD player is very good though, with all of the necessary functions - even slow motion. Since I am using it in my office, it works quite well. Blu-ray works perfectly and the DVD's load fairly quickly. I'm listening to the Ipod function as I'm typing this and it works perfectly, as well.
Summary: A friend pointed this out to me on amazon when i mentioned i was looking for a Panasonic home theater to go with my year-old panasonic 50" plasma i got at costco, to use the Viera link function. naturally, costco and sams werent carrying panasonic home theaters at the time. This was less expensive than frys or best buy (AND with no tax, and free 3 day ship with amazon prime), so i went for it. didnt look too impressive out of the box.
