"Avoid Panasonic"on by radmangi
Pros None, never got past the set up
Cons Panasonic Business Practices
Summary First of all, ads?? On my DVD player?? Seriously?? Secondly, the box and marketing material clearly states that I can get Pandora. But there is no big disclaimer. If you want to use Pandora and almost all the other streaming content, you have to set up a Panasonic account so that they can track you. Part of the set up requests all your credit card information so they can store it on their servers "just in case you decide to buy something". What a monstrous joke!! I packed up the player, returned it and got a Samsung. The reason Panasonic is doing this is that the consumers lay down and allow corporations to roll over them. Everyone justifies it as "it is just the way the world is now". It is this way because consumers allow it. If no one purchased Panasonic products because of their sleazy business tactics, it would stop. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS DVD PLAYER!
Pros Great image quality
Cons Software locks up often
Unable to turn on/off on occasion
WiFi failed after 1 week of use.
UI is clunky: wife and daughter hate it
Summary Wifi adapter is internal, setup stated wifi connection failed due to removal of wifi adapter. When searching for networks, none are detected.
Read reviews on other sites, and this seems to be a recurring story, with a few people exchanging for new units, only to have the same problem arise.
Will be returning this unit ASAP.
