Smart home networking

DLNA-certified Blu-ray Disc™ Players and Home Theaters are easy to use with your home network. Share and enjoy digital photos ), music (MP3, WMA) and videos (AVCHD, WMV) by simply connecting to a home network (LAN). For example, you can install a special app on your smartphone and use it to access a DLNAcertified PC via a Wi-Fi router in another room. The PC works as a DLNA server where your collection of movies, photos and videos is stored. You can access, browse and view media stored on the server while in another room without having to worry about shuffling discs.

• Requires Windows 7 Operating System. Playability may depend on PC performance.

External HDD Playback

Easily enjoy stored content

The 2012 Blu-ray Disc™ Players and Home Theaters are compatible with NTFS (NT File System) format external hard disk drives, so you can enjoy music (FLAC, MP3), photos , MPO), and camcorder video content (AVCHD, MP4) archived on an external HDD.

• Playback is not possible with some external hard disk drives.

Rated 1.9 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Freeze Problem 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? April 8, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Great! 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. April 5, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Absolute worthless piece of technology. I thought this was a wise buying decision but I was wrong. To play a blue ray dvd you need to insert the dvd, wait for the system to lock up, unglug the unit (it will not turn off at this point), plug the unit back in and then you can watch a movie. To stream Netflix or Hulu Plus – good luck. 90% of the time the options for NetFlix or Hulu Plus (which came pre-loaded) are not available. In fact nothing is available except for the ‘Settings’ option. Some times you can unplug the unit and then the options for NetFlix or Hulu Plus will be there but do not count on it. If you would like to see what a poorly designed piece of technology looks like – then this is the waste of money for you. You can have. Really. It's out by the dumpster. January 1, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by do not buy this product We found good reviews of this product and decided to purchase it based on low cost and good reviews. Our experience, however, was not good or consistent with those reviews. Quick lost of cons: -it freezes all the time, only option is to turn it off, wait, then turn it on again -a black box appears over half the screen and disappears again randomly -extremely slow response time -remote doesn't always work I wouldn't purchase again or recommend. The constant freezing of this unit is ridiculous. November 18, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by DO NOT BUY I thought it was just me, until I read the other reviews. I finally decided to join the rest of the world and upgrade to HD ths past March and bought an HD TV and this Panasonic Blu Ray player with the intention of streaming netflix and getting rid of my dish service...after only a week I was having problems. I tried to return the Blu Ray but couldn't find the receipt. I googled the problem and found out a firmwarm update was needed- ok 1 for technology 0 for me... That did not resolve the issues of the picture going in/out while Netflix or a DVD was playing. Or the player being "frozen" to the point I have to unplug it and cannot use it again until the next day. This is ongoing issue. Especially frustrating when trying to watch a movie with the children or work out September 26, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by What a piece of junk. I bought two of these and am going to throw them in the trash. Constant problems, won't come on (locks up#, won't shut off #locks up). When it locks all you can do is unplug it and wait. Complete waste of money. September 8, 2013

September 2, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst ever This was my first smart blu ray DVD player and it acted up from the beginning but I tolerated it. 8 months later it finally went out on me. I tried everything from trouble shooting to get it to work again but I'm done trying and will throw it away today when I purchase a new one that isn't Panasonic. August 31, 2013
