Top Customer Reviews
Set up was relatively easy (but for the plethora of cords and connections from the millions of other devices we have hooked up). It is also relatively easy to use, although somewhat less intuitive than some of the other players we have (e.g. it took me a good half hour to enter my login for Netflix). Netflix takes a little longer to load than it does on the LG, but streaming was very smooth, and uninterrupted (which probably has more to do with my teen being offline than with the player itself).
I did not notice any difference in the loading speed vs. my LG, although as noted earlier, Netflix took a little longer to load up. I would say that this is about average as players go, maybe a little better than a generic blu-ray player because of all the connections and options. There was not a single feature which stood out that impressed me or would make me recommend it over the LG or Phillips. The three cost roughly the same, and all 3 companies make quality components. I would say that your choice of player may be determined by the content that you want as each company provides a slightly different set of options.
The blu-ray player itself is average. It may be that I did not notice much of a difference because I chose my first player carefully. The Lg does not take a long time to load or have confusing menus, so the feature which Panasonic is promoting is somewhat lost on me.
The remote is pretty basic, but not as nicely laid out or intuitive as many others I have (one could even say Too many! ;)
In contrast to just a year or two ago, it is not an expensive purchase and you get a lot for the money. I would recommend this player, but not not over the other 2 I mentioned, again, your choice being determined somewhat by what content you want to access.
If you are just looking for a blu-ray player and do not care about streaming, it works well, and my personal experience with Panasonic electronics has been good (LOVE their cameras!!)
I have not had it long enough (around a month) to discuss durability, but, that said, all of the other equipment I have from Panasonic has held up well. (I have had my TZ camera for at least 7 years now and it is still as good as new).
It is easy to use, plays disks well, streams well and provides a lot of options for input and connections. I gave it 4 stars because there is nothing about it which really stands out, and the remote control is not as user-friendly as some. Otherwise it is a pretty decent little machine.
I am absolutely stunned and floored about the difficulty I had from this Panasonic product and would not trust or recommend this product to anyone.
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.
The picture is great, definitely an improvement over the Sony it replaced. Even makes my DVD's look Blu-Ray quality.
Great value for the price.
To me Blueray players from major name brands are somewhat of a commodity at this point - as long as they play the discs sharply and are reliable for a good pricepoint then they meet my expectations. In the case of this Panasonic it fits that bill - $80 is a good price point, it plays my Blue Ray discs well, and it appears to have good build quality and my prior experiences with Panasonic brand have been good. So overall I give this DVD player 5 stars from my perspective. If any reliability issues surface then I will update my review.
