The BD-35K is by far the best mid-price product on the market. Reviews are Steller, which is the prime reason why I sought out the player. The ONLY downside to the BD-35K is the availability on both online and local retail outlets. However I did find a killer deal with an online retailer. The most impressive feature is the built in Dolby True HD and DTS-HD decoders, saved me a bundle on a new receiver. The BDLive feature is a bonus, considering any Firmware updates are automatically found. One minor detail is the lack of a Coaxial output for digital sound, but Optical is provided. Overall I would rate this unit as a 9/10 for its category.

DVD Player works well and looks great on our HDMI big screen and with Blu-Ray only DVD's. We have problems with just about every old DVD we own, they skip! I like the ability to quickly bypass all content prior to movies but sometimes it takes many minutes for DVD to load. I am not sold on the hype but don't see a reason to buy old technology either. Ultimatly, I'd recomend.

Comments about Panasonic Blu-ray Disc Player:
This unit would be OK if it didn't have the freezing problem that many have mentioned previously. I'd have no problem giving it a much better review if this issue was fixed. I long ago installed the latest Firmware, but that didn't resolve the issue. Maybe the problem is hardware related and can't be fixed by a Firmware upgrade?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Plymouth, MI
I have had my blu ray player for over 2 years now and use it on a daily basis. It still works great! It has a compact design which fit into my entertainment unit with room to spare. It loads, reads, and plays discs very easily & the quality is good. I don't use the extra features because I only use it for discs so I can't attest how those work. The only drawbacks are occasionally it will not shut off & has to be unplugged to reboot, but works great again. I would also improve the design of the remote control because I've accidentally hit the wrong button because they're so close together. Overall, I'm very happy with my player and would recommend it for playing discs.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Very slow...does not resume play ..look for a different player.

no fancy features
from San Jose, California
This is a barebone Blue-ray/DVD player. No Netfix, BDLive is also slow(useless my my opinion). Note:- FOr BDLive to work you need to add SD Card in the SD Card slot. If you need streaming/Netfix or fast uptime - don't buy it. Buy it if it is very cheap as the quality of Blue ray and DVD

What? No Netflix streaming??? This has to be a firmware upgrade ... right? This is disappointing from a company like Panasonic.
Player works well. Wish I would have purchased one that had netflix capability. I wonder if this could be added via a software update.

best value on the market without a doubt
from Los Angeles
Great value in a Blu ray player in my opinion. DVD conversion is so good there little need to buy Blu-ray discs unless you ready need the hi-res images and 5.1 sound. For animation DVDs there is no need to purchase the Blu ray version, the upscaling is that good. The only drawback is the need to provide a Ethernet port or wireless bridge, to allow for player firmware updates to play certain Blu ray disks, and to download Blu-ray features and options, the later of which are nearly useless in my opinion.
This needs Netflix streaming...
from Portland Oregon
I have been satisfied but this product needs the netflix streaming. Why is this not an option?
Love it. Great quality and value. Panasonic please please please provide firmware to add Netflix instant viewing. Thanks

Purchased this player for Christmas and have been extremely happy with its performance ever since. Every disc, both Blu-Ray and standard DVD, that I have played has performed flawlessly. The only issue is the lack of Netflix streaming capability. Adding this capability with a firmware download would make this a really excellent machine. Please Panasonic...make it so.
