Rated 1.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lack of Amazon VOD I too bought this player with the intention of using Amazon Video On Demand (VOD). This streaming service is not available still as of 3/4/14. What is the delay? I would like to know how long the logo for Amazon has been on the Panasonic product page with the "coming soon" qualification. I have multiple Panasonic products (2 Plasma TVs and 3 Bluray players). I have always been satisfied with their products and happily recommend them to my friends. This issue has disappointed me to the point I will go elsewhere when I have electronic needs. March 4, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible Feature Write-up I can't really speak to the quality as it did not meet expectations so I am returning it immediately. It did seem easy to set up as far as I got. I saw the logo for Amazon Video on Demand and the words Amazon Video on Demand compatible on this website. So, I bought the device. I was checking everything out on my cell at the store to see if it had the service I wanted. Got home and realized there was a teeny-tiny little asterisk and teeny-tiny little fine print underneath the much larger Amazon Video on Demand image that says "coming soon." Returning immediately. Please do not advertise a feature that is not yet available, unless the "coming soon" is at least as prominent on the page as the logo for the service. That is deceptive. August 10, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by do not buy if you want a WiFi connection! this need an adapter to be wireless (thus wireless "ready") but they don't make the adapter anymore! do not buy this if you want a WiFi connection! June 11, 2013
