Very unreliable streaming...,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic DMP-BD87 Ultra-Fast Booting Blu-ray Disc Player (Electronics)Streaming Netflix works very poorly. It seems to run into network problems 3 out of every 4 tries. A 6 year old laptop placed right next to it gets a good wi-fi connection and can stream without problems.
Navigating the menus is painfully slow, and sometimes locks up. Once it completely froze up and wouldn't even power off. After 5 minutes, I needed to unplug it just to get it to shut off.
Returning it only 3 hours after the package arrived. Here's hoping that Amazon's return process is as painless as the web pages imply. I've never had to use it before.

I was out and on a whim a picked up this Blue Ray. I have to say I have had it less then a month and it has locked up at least 4 times. Sometimes with a disc other times trying to load up the Network. Panasonic, I'm very disappointed to say the least. I bought this to replace a Panasonic that I got 12 years out of. This one is going back to the store.

Appreciate all these reviews. Honestly, I'd have purchased any Panasonic product [just about] and never read a review. Shocked they'd come out with a disc player that could garner this many bad reviews. Guess the age of blindly trusting any specific brand is truely over. :(
