Summary: Good Product Our use is specific - office based -- and it appears to work - piping music into different rooms - though because bass is on a different channel, lacks the bass response in these other rooms which are wired with paired wiring. Also realize it appears to need to have a TV attached to take advantage of full programming capabilities.
Summary: The unit looks slick, sounds great, has 80GB hard-drive so I can store more music and books than I can think of,etc,etc. However, just like other two reviewers have said, it locks up more often than not - especially when I click "open" while in dvd/cd mode. I really hope panasonic will have a software patch to fix this problem.
Summary: I really like my HTIB, but it has one major problem. Every now and then the unit doesn't respond. According to Panasonic, you must re-initalize the product by holding down the STOP and >10 buttons at the same time. This happens at least twice a week for me. Especially when I select cd/dvd. I would hope that Panasonic would come up with a software patch, but I got a feeling there's not a lot of these out there. For a small unit, music does sound good.
Summary: Da ich einen Panasonic-Flachbildschirm besitze, habe ich mich für dieses Gerät entschieden da es über "Viera-Link" zu bedienen ist (nur eine Fernsteuerung). Ausschlaggebend war auch, dass dieses Gerät in einer Fachzeitschrift als Testsieger hervorging. Auch der Rabatt auf ein Neugerät von ca 25% war ein Enscheidungskriterium. Mein Irrtum war, da das Gerät eine 80 Gigabite Festplatte besitzt, ich könnte auf meinen Festplattenrecorder verzichten.
