Excellent load speed, True HD surround, easy internet access (BD Live is great!)
Thus far I have not found any problems with this player.
Along with my new Panasonic 50" Plasma 3D television, I had to of course purchase a new 3D player. This one does not disappoint in the least. This loads my discs a lot faster then my previous Samsung player.
The beauty of this player is of course I don't need to buy an adapter to use the internet as it is built in. The streaming is excellent quality (through Comcast service) and the HD Video/Audio output seems excellent thus far. Testing both "Tangled" and "Avatar" in 3D, there have not been any flaws that we have noticed as of yet.
This was a little under $200.00 at Best Buy, not a bad price at all for a good quality player!
Easy setup and user friendly navigation. Super fast load times compared to other name brand players Ive used.
Needs a firmware update out of the box, but really i don't consider it a negative
I think Panasonic really raised the bar on the 2011 models at this price point. Panasonic has been pushing for faster load times which i think they accomplished on the BDT210. The sensor on top to open the tray with a wave of your hand is a nice innovated feature.All the apps stream effortlessly with the built in wireless, However 1080p is a little glitchy but no fault of the player, as my Netgear wireless N is about 50ft away and needs to push at least 5ghz at about 25ft for 1080p streaming, but 720P isn't a problem.
Apps include Vudu,Netflix,Youtube and Cinema HD Pandora, Skype, Amazon and the Weather channel.
DLNA is a great feature i can stream all my music,photos.
The 3d on this player is top notch and looks fantastic on my 3d plasma, it features a depth controller and a new chip design to allow adjustable preferred 3d depth of field and maintaining perfect color control,and also allows for 2d to 3d conversion.
Its going to be hard to beat this sub $200 player for all the performance and features that the 210 offers, nice job Panasonic.
Saw a lot of negative press about this player with respect to online/web features not working properly. My
biggest concern was Netflix not streaming very well/not working at all. When I saw the latest firmware (1.8x)
fixed all of the issues, I decided to take a chance on upgrading my BDT35...and I'm glad I did.
This player is so simple to use, and the load times are incredibly fast. I also like the Quick Start option (at the
trade off of a bit more power consumption) to really speed things up. Wireless setup was a breeze as well, and
I'm glad Panasonic made finding the player's MAC address nice and easy, as to be able to grant device access
to my MAC-filtered wireless network.
Web content galore! Netflix, YouTube, NHL Gamecenter are my three favorites but there's so much more I
haven't even touched yet. I was also pleasantly surprised I could access my Windows XP media server through
the player too, although, the player's interface I found does not have a shuffle option for my music library
(offers a static list in alphabetical order only).
I don't know if it's just me, but it seems the audio quality with the 210 is much better than the 35. I watched
127 Hours on it last night (True HD audio) and was amazed by the sound field. Audio enthusiasts will be quite
happy with the performance this little player delivers.
Once you have the latest firmware update, you'll love this player. Considering I got mine for $130 on Amazon, I
think I made a really good purchase decision. Can't wait to get a 3D TV some day!
it has built in streaming and has 2d to 3d conversion and gives a little bit better 3d effect than sony does and performers
with just about every brand but sony because they use active x tech driver i got built in audio and video decoding and hs
depth adjusting the only difference and the upcoming 310 is one feature. it also has motion techology which means it
haves no eject but meaning you know when your in the public place you wave you'r hands and water comes on it's like
that all you do put you'r had next to it and the disc tray opens. it has 30 seconds or faster load time and has improved
anti skip feature built in like a cd player does. the bdt210 full 3d player has 2 to 3 year warranty behind it if you want to
get one. and the price i paid wasn't that bad $199.99 compared to some products which is supposed to do the same
oppo still hasn't got the bugs out the their 3d unit's i brought the 95 unit they did get ride of most of the bugs but i
think people should wait a year or to before buying their units for 3d playback.
Can not for the life of me get the wireless setup working!...TOO small!...Readout too dim
I purchased this unit based on the reviews, and while it plays movies very well, it has a few faults that are worth mentioning.
First, this player is so slim that it almost annoying. I currently have my player out in the open on my AV rack and this player is so thin that you can see the power cord/HDMI cable in the back of the unit from my sitting area. Being slim it also weighs only a few lbs. which makes it feel a little cheap.
Secondly, the time display is very dim at it's highest setting which is annoying to me. Some people like to turn their displays off...I like to see the progress time wise and this unit has me straining to read the display....again annoying.
Third, I could not get the wireless function working on my home router. I am very skilled at computers and I tried everything, including a new firmware update....no dice. There are a lot of people complaining out there about the wireless/Netflix problems and some have been rectified with the updated firmware, and some have not. (Like Me!) I hooked my PS3 up with my router in no time flat with zero problems and that unit is in the basement. This unit is a few feet from my router and wont connect.....go figure.
I returned it and have ordered an LG BD690 which my brother owns and hooked up to my router with zero problems. The LG is also a robust unit that while is a bit more money, looks the part.
