Pros Easy to setup, excellent video quality,ultra fast booting, Netflix, youtube, etc.
Cons only one USB in front, so USB wireless adapter will look ugly there...
Summary Easy to use, loads quick and plays faster than others, compatibility between Panasonic VIERALink and Samsung Anynet so I can share remote controls, including some functions for TV, AV Receiver with the same remote control.
Viera Cast with Netflix, Youtube and other services.
good price $
Pros Nice upscaling quality. Fast booting for Blue-ray playback.
Cons it's wireless ready, but the usb dongle is pricey.
Summary Excellent value, very happy with the player. I'm not sure what the other review is complaining about. I had no issues.
Pros Just about everything until the unit told me to update the firmware to v1.43
Cons Updating the firmware to v1.43 (released 11/22/2010) makes Netflix inaccessible. Worked great before.
Summary I WAS very pleased with this unit until yesterday when it insisted I update the firmware to v1.43. The update was quick (I use the Ethernet connection to my 30Mb/s TimeWarner cable modem). But now it will no longer access Netflix. Panasonic service (800-211-7262) line is constantly busy, no doubt from the thousands of other BD65 owners wanting a fix, and their e-mail contact form just dumps you out with a "server overload" error.
I, and no doubt many many others, will be returning my BD65 to the store. I'll instead get the Sony S370 that Best Buy and Target will have for $99 on Black Friday.
Pros It did not lock up...that's it.
Cons The image quality is terrible! I have a Pioneer DVD player, that up-converts a DVD better than this did with a Blu Ray!
Summary Poor remote...maddeningly close buttons caused me to have to restart the movie twice, after hitting the button that was too close to a menu button. The picture was impossible to get right, and even though it is a Blue Ray disc, my Pioneer DVD player...(yes I said DVD) up-converts a DVD to a better picture than this. I spent a ton of time playing with the video settings on my TV, and the player....but the results were very disappointing.
Pros excellent picture quality
HD Master Audio/True HD capability
easy set up
Cons not too slow but not super speedy
Summary Was an excellent purchase to replace Sony BDP 300 (the tank)
