Customer Reviews

3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Built-In WiFi-DISCONTINUED is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Blu Ray player for the money. After reading some of the negative reviews, I'm really puzzled. If it was possible, I'd actually rate this unit at a 4.5. I'm not a High Tech guru, but in glancing at the instructions in the manual and setting the player up accordingly, then downloading and installing the firmware upgrade - I have had no problems at all. The WiFi successfully connected on the very first attempt. The unit communicated with my Panasonic plasma HDTV with no problems. The picture's great. Good sound. And not only does it play blu ray disks well, it does a great up-conversion of standard dvd's. In regards to Netflex, I was able to log into my account and start watching movies without any problem at all. I also connected to Youtube, in which the only problem I had was with Google. I had to confirm via my PC that I was going to let a new device access my account. After that - no problems. The only negatives I've seen in this purchase is: 1. The manual itself. It definitely could be written a lot clearer. However, customer support was able to answer any questions I had. 2. I wish they had an app for CBS News & NBC News - similar to what I have on my tablet. 3. When I shut off the unit, I wish it would automatically shut off my TV. I'd definitely recommend this blu ray player to anyone. It's a great unit - especially considering the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware The player does okay with BluRay discs, although I am not crazy about the auto start feature, meaning if a disc is in the player when you turn it on it automatically begins playing the disc rather than take you to the home screen. My biggest issue is with the so-called "Built in WIFI". I have a Linksys Wireless G 2.4 GHZ router and at first it worked flawlessly. However, we have owned the Panasonic DMP-BDT220 for less than two months and we can no longer use its WIFI features. We first noticed the problems with the Netflix streaming. Panasonic uses the login/password method for you to connect to Netflix instead of the activate code used with other products. Once you input your credentials, you are presented with a very nice layout of your Instant Queue, Recently Watched and Recommended. Unfortunately, YOU CANNOT WATCH THEM! When you choose ANY movie/TV show, you get the message "We're having trouble playing this title right now. Please try again later or select a different title." When I contacted Netflix about it, I was informed that this is a known issue with the T220 and they gave me Panasonic's Support phone number. Netflix also told me to ask for 2nd level support as first level would not be able to actually do anything to fix the problem. I did some Google searches and discovered that this has been a problem since early March 2011. This is now June 2012! I found that I am not the only one to have these issues. Isn't it ironic that Panasonic promotes the CNET "Best Blu-ray value for 2012" review, yet CNET had to issue an update after receiving so many complaints with the WIFI/Netflix issues?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quirky, and WiFi Useless Ater a Month Lots of cons and other quirks with the DMP-BDT220: 1. Ours ran pretty well with Netflix for about a month, then the WiFi totally died (no connectivity at all with Netflix or any other internet functions). Breaking power and performing a total reset did not help. The location didn't have ethernet cable wiring, so we eventually installed a MoCA (ethernet over coax) network and it's working again. However, the MoCA devices cost us as much as the player! 2. Sloooooowww to acquire an IP address on a wired network. Excruciatingly slow on a wireless network (when it worked). 3. Just a minor annoyance, but you can't go directly to Netflix or the internet from a disc. You have to press "Home" first. What were they thinking? 4. When you power on, if a disc is in the player, it insists on starting to play it. In my opinion, as a multi-function player it should start from Home, or better still, give you an "Auto Play" option in a menu - and default it to off! 5. When you remove a disc, it totally forgets where you were and starts from the beginning next time. Very disappointing...our old standard def player (another brand) "remembered" where we were on several discs simultaneously and would pick up right where you left off. 6. The disc menu button ("Pop-Up Menu") is inoperable on some multi-episode discs when within a minute or less of the episode end. VERY annoying! 7. We're using a standard 4:3 CRT television in this room, and the player insists on putting black bars on either side of standard 4:3 Netflix programs! Weird. 8. Remote is not programmable and can only be used to control Panasonic televisions. 9. Oddball location of "Power" and "Open/Close" buttons on top cover is inconvenient and results in inadvertent button presses when dusting or moving the unit. We really wanted to like this unit. As it is, however, we merely tolerate it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from With just a bit more this could have been great Picture and sound are great playing Blu-ray, DVDs or Netflix. Typical wait on blu-ray upload (sorry panasonic the improvement you claim appears to be minimal). The real problem is the wireless internet connection. More times than it should, it will stop in the middle of a netflix movie and tell you it can't find netflix or the netflix connection is no good, etc. HMMMM but my Wii, Panasonic TV with wifi, my Roku, my desktop, my laptop and my parakeet with optional wifi (joking on that one) all get the wifi signal continuously (never a stop ever including during a hurricane) with no problem. Panasonic spend another couple of bucks and make your blu-ray great instead of just average.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing WIFI Thought I was going to love this player based on it's CNET review, but I should have read more customer reviews before I bought it. As many others have noted, this unit plays disks quite well, but Netflix has been nothing but a big frustration. My internet signal and speed are excellent but Netflix movies freeze and rebuffer every few minutes no matter what I do. The latest firmware update did nothing. One of the main reasons I got this was for Netflix streaming and it is all but unwatchable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WiFi issues Only problem I've had, and its a near dealbreaker, is the poor streaming quality. If I can get the player to connect to my 5GHz network, and it fails about 30% of the time, HD picture quality isn't guaranteed. The stream will hang, skip, or look like a videotape about 25% of the time. I have no problem streaming on my computer, tablet, or phone on the same network.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from FIX YOUR NETFLIX PROBLEM I just want to second everyone's comments. I have this device wired in to the internet and Netflix refuses to operate. It will not open Netflix. I can run any number of the other programs however I can't run the one thing I bought this DVD player for. On the plus side it does play blu-ray movies wonderfully and the start up is very fast. Nevertheless, this is the first complete bust I have purchased in a long time. I'm sure anyone reading this does their research on electronic devices. I also did my research on this device but wound up with a lemon. Bottom line: It would be a great device if Panasonic could figure out the Netflix problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best blu-ray player on the market! This blu-ray player is excellent in all aspects. It was rated the best the blu-ray player of 2012 by Cnet and it has lived up to expectations from the viewing quality to the internet capability. I own 2 of them.
