I highly recommend this player, as it performs its advertised functions faithfully.

To Tiger Direct's credit, they immediately provided me with a pre-paid return UPS label and I am awaiting a refund to my credit card.

Sure it takes a minute to boot the blu ray but are you really going to complain about wait like 1 minute for your disc to boot?

Panasonic has always been known to build solid machines-broadcast vcrs (back in the day) that never stopped, cordless phones that survived being dropped, and every sort of electronic device in between. I've always been a fan of how well-built Panasonic stuff is. They are, after all, the makers of the only shock-proof laptop (the Toughbook).

For image quality, I always preferred Sony, and for sound I always preferred Yamaha or Denon. But similar Panasonic stuff always looked and sounded "pretty good". Especially since you could drop it.

That's all changed. Now Panasonic continues to make well-built stuff, and they have the best new Plasmas on the market. After having 3 Sony DVD players die in 7 years, I decided to go with the Panasonic Blu-Ray player, mostly so I could use my TV remote with no hassle.

I have not been disappointed. This player starts up fast, the image quality is simply stunning. I had no problem download firmware. DVD up-conversion looks good too. This player had no problem with moderately scratched DVD's. I haven't seen a scratched BD yet, but I can only image BDs will not work as well scratched, but time will tell.

Honestly, BD Live doesn't interest me, if I want an interactive experience, there are website and youtube. I mean flipping through content with a remote control just isn't the same as using a mouse.

I had no problem getting my player to work with my network. Since the cable modem is hooked up to, well cable, it only made sense to place it near the cable box, so therefore my router was already near the TV. I had no problem receiving a DHCP address from my Airport router.

For the limited content you get from Viera cast, it does work well. I haven't tried watching amazon.

I read a press release from Panasonic that Viera Cast would be including Netflix. That annoouncement convinced me to buy this player. I also bought a wireless link to hook it to the internet.

But no Netflix appeared. So, I wrote to Panasonic and this was the reply:
"We do apologize for the inconvenience; however Netflix is only available on the 2010 Blu-Ray models. There will be no firmware available to access this feature on your DMP-BD605K as the new additional features of the 2010 Viera Cast system are all hardware improvements and developments and not available via firmware upgrade."

So, if you planned on using Netflix, rethink your plans. If you want to use Netflix, you will have to try to figure out which of Panasonic's models are '2010' and realize that Viera Cast is not one thing.

When my DMP-BD30 started pausing during 'Twilight', and the regular glitches on every movie (like starting every movie without sound, pausing and going black for 5 seconds, then continuing just fine) were at last driving me nuts, I knew it was time for a firmware update. When I saw the BDM-BD605K at Samsclub I figured I'd get my 1st machine with internet connectivity (other than the HD DVD machines). The price was awesome!($277)

The panasonic seems to take 20 to 25 seconds to start a movie or to detect "no disk'. -Faster than a lot of players including my previous ones. I hear a new Samsung is even faster, but Amazons reviewers always rate the Panasonics a whole star higher than Samsungs. I've been pleased with every Panasonic piece I've owned.

Technology is moving lightning-fast and Blu-ray is only improving each month. I was thrilled to see such a fantastic high-def picture when I previewed 'Underworld-Rise of the Lycans'. Even the movie previews were outstanding.

The prosessing is of the latest design (PHL plus included) and I see a clear difference on my 60" Elite Kuro PLasma. This model will bitstream all the newest hi-def audio formats I'm used to for decoding by my Onkyo 905 receiver. I understand that this model is really a repackaged BD-60 with a free (cheap) HDMI cable. It's 60% the size of the BD-30. The tray is finally in the center. I can't wait to explore more of the features (24P, viera link, SD card slot, USB and Ethernet connections).

I know I'll have this model for a long while and I highly recomend it to all.

Verified Purchase
The performance of this thing is amazing for the price point which why I gave it 5 stars. It is not the best player but it costs less than half what the best costs and does everything I need done.

I have been waiting a while to join the Blu-Ray era because I have hundreds of standard definition (SD) DVDs that I still watch a lot and the new player had to be able to play them at least as well as my trusty Panasonic S-97 (which was the best HDMI up converting DVD player for less than $200 five years ago). Virtually all of the reviews less than a year ago for all the Blu-Ray players said the up conversion of SD DVDs was poor except for the new Oppo ($400).

Well, the Panasonic BD-60 and 605 does a better job according to both DVE
(Digital Video Essentials) and the HQV Benchmark DVDs. And so does my semi-calibrated eye ball on SD DVDs some of which are hard to make look good! This thing has significantly better color balance, jitter elimination, etc. than the S-97 so I would have no problem using this player for all DVDs except for a few human interface issues (see the cons below).

One note for setting up for playing SD DVDs, I found that forcing the output to 1080p 24Hz, gave a noticeable "smoother" presentation with a very de minimus reduction in sharpness.

I expected the Blu-Ray performance to be very good and it was. It did not disappoint. As has been commented in other reviews the response time is noticeably longer than a regular DVD player but I can live with for the price.

Unlike as reported in another review, mine does remember where you stopped viewing the current DVD played whether you just stop, turn off the player or even removed the DVD. Obviously it does not remember if you load another disc.
