The Panasonic DMP-BDT210 Wi-Fi 3D Blu-Ray DVD Player is much more than just a DVD player, it offers a great option to access a number of internet streaming sites like Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Skype and Pandora to name a few.
While the Panasonic Wi-Fi 3D Blu-Ray Player does offer Netflix service, I had some issues with an error code while trying to stream, but have been successful in streaming movies after a firmware update.
The menu systems are very nice and easy to navigate even for non-techies, which makes installation of the Blu-ray player pretty seamless. The Wi-Fi was simple to set-up but if you have problems you can directly connect an Ethernet line to the player in order to access the vast online services available.
3D titles look fantastic from this Blu-Ray player, even the 2D-3D conversion that converts images to display more depth worked rather well on most occasion, something I was not expecting.
Fans of Microsoft Kinect will enjoy the touch-free senor built into the player that allows you to open and close the disc-tray; I wish they developed the sensor more to give the viewer the ability to control the menus with as well.
The remote for the Panasonic Wi-Fi 3D Blu-Ray Player is pretty expansive and easy to use; it even includes a nifty Skype button to automatically switch you over to the Skype menu screen. Blu-ray discs load very quickly, the picture and sound quality are top-notch especially when selecting the Enhanced Sound option within the menus.
Another great feature of his Blu-ray Player is the ability to stream from your home computer Wi-Fi over to your Player and on your television.
If you are thinking about buying this Blu-ray player you’ll need to update the firmware before accessing the online services, and you’ll need to purchase or use an old SD memory card in order to store online applications on, because the player does not have an internal hard drive.
My only gripe about his Blu-ray player is the limited file support; hopefully a firmware update can fix this problem also. Currently the player only plays MP3, JPEG, and MKV files from the USB drives, would be super if it could also read MPEGS and MP4 files, then I would say this player is pretty close to perfection.
If you’re looking for a great 3D Blu-Ray player and the ability to access numerous internet services on your television, then the Panasonic DMP-BDT210 Integrated Wi-Fi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player is worth the significant $169 price tag. The amazing playback quality of 3D discs, the numerous online applications, Wi-Fi capability, and numerous customizable options make this Blu-ray player one of the best available.
