Pros Great picture, Netfilx, and the Viera jives with my new Panasonic TV.
Cons No built in WiFi. When navigating Netflix the system is really slow compared to using my XBOX 360. Somewhat overpriced because of the reasons listed above.
Summary I got a Panasonic mainly because I have a New Panasonic TV and wanted to use the Viera system to access Netfilx. I read reviews about the picture quality being the best and I can say I am really satisfied. I just replaced a 10 year old DVD player (also a Panasonic) so I am not complaining about the looks of this unit. Some people say that it is bulky and ugly but I don't agree with this at all. I actually like the look of this player and thought it was actually sleek and cool. If I had not had a Panasonic TV, I would consider another player with the same options in this price range.
"Terrific Player"on by hrubin1000
Pros Great picture, great sound, easy wireless setup.
Cons Missing DLNA & Pandora.
Summary You will not regret this purchase.
Pros Sharp, crisp picture. Netflix streaming is great . watched the blu-ray disc "UP" and the detail was excellent. Great player with the addition of Netflix , Easy account set-up
load times were good. You get a "free WiFi I use a hardwired connection.
Cons DVD up-scaling. Was not so hot .I have a 26 inch monitor/TV Samsung T260 HD, my computer is handy. DVD plays better in the computer drive ( I was using The Hangover for the test ) BTW I am using HDMI cables and have updated the firmware.
Summary All in all the player is great for the medium price range and now that Panasonic has the Netflix /Vera-cast deal done
Great internet content !! As I said before, the picture is well detailed and crisp. DVD up-scaling, not so hot ,maybe this will be fixed in a firmware update. You get a "free WiFi dongle ...I think the Sony dongle is like 80 bucks
After reading reviews for 2 weeks This is the one I settled on. I love the C-NET user reviews as they tell it like it is and are based on real world experiences with the products .... I got Best Buy's 2 year plan, Just to be on the safe side.
I'm gonna watch 2012 tonight .....
Pros Ease of use. Analog Audio output.
Cons Wireless setup.
