I have had numerious Panasonic products going as far back as tha early 70s. This player has allowed me and my family to enjoy our extensive DVD collection. All other players, to include exspensive products just could not make the cut. If you are the type of person who needs a player costing more than $700.00 thats OK, but you are truely missing a GEM in the BD80K. The value and cost that Panasonic works for is clear in this player. Thanks Panasonic

Quality machine with 2 drawbacks: Does not have Netflix and Viera Cast is disappointing. Needs to have a company like Netflx or true DNLA connectivity. Viera Cast has not been finished in years. Users can get more internet features on gaming machines and there are so many other alternatives to cable such as Netflix, Hulu, or PlayonTV. BD Live is great and the Blu-Ray features are excellent. I do not think I would ever consider a product with Viera Cast on it in the future. I purchased this product after reading an article that said Netflix was going to be added.

    Comments about Panasonic Blu-ray Disc Player:

    It's been treated gently and after over a year, I have two issues: 1) intermittently reboots (powers off/on) 2) If screen saver comes on due to movie paused, you have to restart the player.

      Comments about Panasonic Blu-ray Disc Player:

      Really good picture and sound quality BUT massive problem to read MKV (Divx) files ! 1 out of 2 can't be read. Same with reading divx from different sources (computer, hard drive): not working 95% of the time. Although, the picture and sound quality is excellent this issue is definitely not acceptable knowing the price this item cost.

                        Netflix? What, no Netflix?? I was given tghe unit in 2009 as a Christmas gift and have enjoyed using the player since (good experience, good quality). Recently I thought about giving Netflix a try and hadent read any of the reviews (yet). I have since upgraded the firmware and found the Amazon movie selection to be extensive and possibly expensive. I dont know how many movies everyone else has time to watch but I dont have time for more than one every now and then. Amazon isnt so bad after all in that regard. I have the player hare wired with a net cable to my router.

                              Even though the blu-ray player is extremely good, I expected it to have netflix. I bought it in 2010, but I guess it is not a 2010 model. I am very happy with the DVD up conversion and the blu-ray disks play great( slow to load ).
