Summary I have a Samsung 67"LED DLP TV. This Panasonic is its best 3d companion. This player and its more expensive siblings are the only other players that currently offer the checkerboard option. that is what is needed for 3D in the older Samsung and Mitsubishi DLP tvs to display in 3d.
I won't go in to a lot of detail of the specs. you can read the listing from Panasonic for that. but i will tell you what is important to me is that the picture is incredible. 3d is as good as the theater. i have had other blu-ray players. so far i find this one to be on par if not better than the other players. picture and sound quality are excellent. upconversion is the best i have seen for players under $500(even as good as the oppo). it brings back life to my large dvd collection. i read another reviewer comment on the remote being poorly made. this is false. i have no worry that if i drop it it will be just fine.
what is currently written about the performance and options is very accurate from what i have experienced. a very great player and very easy to use. the few other reviewers that moan about what it doesn't have are just moaning over nothing. to just review on what this player can do is what i am doing. you want something else buy something else or buy one of the more expensive Panasonics. if you want a great 3d blu-ray player that plays all 3d formats for a great price.(under $200) this is the one!!!
i hope everyone enjoys their purchase as much as i do.

Pros Excellent picture quality, simple menu structure, easy setup
Cons S/N ratio not as high
Summary I think this is a great entry level 3D player, but as a 2D player it is more than most people need.
Contrary to another post, I was able to get it to work with my Harmony 670 universal remote.
Pros price and performance
Cons nothing i can think of
Summary i use harmoney one works fine
Pros Not bad video
Cons 3D is only ok, does not support using a universal remote.
Summary The product is ok, nothing great, but the fact that In today's world you would not allow the use of a universal remote to control your product is ridiculous. Add to that poor documentation, poor customer service, and a web site that really needs some help for the customer service tool.
