"CNET didn't test long enough"3.0 starson by gilliganjr
Pros: It is a fine blu-ray player, and streams all of the services I like (Amazon, Vudu, Hulu+ and Netflix*)
Cons: Netflix - do a search for "Panasonic and Netflix" and you will discover that Viera Connect (on TVs and Blu-Ray players) has had on-going problems with streaming Netflix.
Summary: We bought this player in early May after CNET gave it their Editor's Choice (2012) award. In July, it was struggling to maintain wi-fi network connectivity. After working to get that restored, then Netflix still wouldn't stream. Ultimately, it took resetting the device to factory/memory defaults (using steps provided on the Panasonic support site for this player). Netflix works again (for now), but it was a hassle that I hope doesn't recur every 2.5 months.
