Summary: I recieved the theater system as a gift in 2010, Panasonic advertised that it had added a few apps in late 2011, so installed the November 2011 firmware update and the player has stopped playing all blu-rays. I have sent an email to see if we can remove the driver but I was told that I had to send it to them to be serviced.
Summary: Almost 2 years since I purchased it and its working perfectly at the present date. Great sound and video quality. There are 2 reasons why I didnt give it 5 stars: - it doesnt have an usb port to read mp3, pictures and videos (I dont like apple products so, the Ipod dock is useless for me) - if you dont have a TV with the ARC feature(audio return channel) you will have to connect all your devices using the optical audio port (this port does not play DTS and Dolby,...
Summary: This is a great product ... I only wished the back speakers were also wireless. But it was easy to hide the thin cord behind pictures. I got this for the sound quality and it's great. Yes, I would buy this system again.
Summary: I bought this in early 2011. At first, it played everything fine. I wasn't happy with the way it handled iPods but otherwise it seemed to work. (For the iPod, you have to turn on the TV and use the menu associated with the unit to specify a play list. I would prefer to do this on the iPod itself). Towards the end of 2011, the Blu Ray stopped working. Every disk gave a "Copyright Violation" error - even those we had watched on the same unit previously.

Summary: Sound is pretty decent. Speech could still be better. The Netflix menu is rather slow and I can never remove things from the instant queue even though there is a selection for it. The unit sometimes turns itself off. Also it randomly has a loud pop that sounds like it comes from the subwoofer. While a vast improvement over the speakers inside my flat TV I do regret buying this unit. *** Update 28 Feb 2012 *** Loud random pop still happens. All the menus are sluggish.
Summary: Most reviews jump the gun, and then people tend not to update with their findings. For this reason, I decided to wait on posting my views on this unit. I knew it was cheap, and knew things could go very sour, in little time. First - I gave it 5 stars, because it's a great value for the dollar. You get a Blu-Ray player that's decent, and an Up-Converting DVD.
Movie theater in your own home. Forget going to local cinemas.

Summary: Wonderful system that enhances my home entertainment system. I would recommend this home theater with high definition blu ray to anyone. It has wonderful sound, an exceptional picture and includes wifi. It also upscales Dvd to 1080P resolution. Definitely a system you must have.
