Pros Was hesitant to purchase because of negative Netflix feedback. But my Netflix works perfectly. I have used it everyday for 2 weeks. Easy setup. Found wireless router quickly.
Cons Haven't tried 3d yet. Have to wait for Avatar disk.
Summary Another super Panasonic product.
Pros Easy setup and user friendly navigation. Super fast load times compared to other name brand players Ive used.
Cons Needs a firmware update out of the box, but really i don't consider it a negative.
The wireless connection was a little tricky and wouldn't connect automatically, but after a few router settings it was a breeze.
Summary I think Panasonic really raised the bar on the 2011 models at this price point. Panasonic has been pushing for faster load times which i think they accomplished on the BDT210. The sensor on top to open the tray with a wave of your hand is a nice innovated feature.All the apps stream effortlessly with wireless, However 1080p is a little glitchy but no fault of the player, as my Netgear wireless N is about 50ft away and needs to push at least 5ghz at about 25ft for 1080p streaming, but 720P isn't a problem.
Apps include Vudu,Netflix,Youtube and Cinema HD Pandora, Skype, Amazon and the Weather channel.
DLNA is a great feature i can stream all my music,photos.
The 3d on this player is top notch and looks fantastic on my 3d plasma, and features a depth controller and a new chip design to allow adjustable preferred 3d depth of field also features 2d to 3d conversion.
Its going to be hard to beat this sub $200 player for all the performance and features that the 210 offers, nice job Panasonic.
Pros Nice design, plays Blu Ray Movie as well as others.
Cons NETFLIX DOES NOT WORK!!
Firmware updated itself soon as we plugged it in but apparently the Netflix issue wasn't part of the update.. Disappointing..
Summary Put me on the list of ex-owners who purchased this player with high expectations and sadly forced to return this player because of the known Netflix bug. Using this player to watch Netflix was 2nd on our list of things our new Blu Ray player needed to do and it failed miserably. I tried using wifi and then hard wired it (ran a dedicated Ethernet line to the player) and neither helped, we even went as far as bringing our kids Apple TV II down and connected it and it ran Netflix flawlessly so it's apparent the problem is with the player. If Netflix is a major buying preference loom else where, rolling the dice isn't worth it, now we have to repack this player, bring it to ups, await Amazon to receive it then refund our money.. Times like this makes us wish we bought it at a local brick and mortar store...
Pros Updated firmware was easy to connect to my wireless router, grand daughters love the hand pass to open and close the disc door.
Cons Netflix was the MAIN reason to buy this product I hope the firmware gets updated soon or that Amazon has a solution for a return
Summary while all the other features seem to work the NETFLIX option was the primary reason my wife wanted an appliance with this feature. Now I'm in the doghouse for not researching this more. I used CNET to do the research next time not so sure it will be my primary source of information.!
Pros Easy setup
Wifi works great
Touch free disc tray
Cons Manual could be more detailed regarding some of the setup options.
Summary I chose the DMP-BDT210 because it offered access to Amazon video and because other users praised its interface and quick loading. Integrated wifi was also a must have feature. Some users have reported problems with wifi, while others had no problem. I decided to buy from Amazon due to their great return policy and low price, knowing that if I had problems with wifi, I could easily return the unit. I am happy to report that wifi works flawlessly with the latest firmware update which is part of the easy setup process. This is my first BD player, and the picture rivals OTA HD. I do not have a 3D TV so I can only rate 2D performance. I would highly recommend this player to anyone.
