Very slow Netflix 01/01/2011
This review is from: Panasonic WiFi Ready Blu-ray Player DMP-BD65
It works as a Blu-Ray player and can access Netflix (usually).
The Viera-Cast access is VERY slow and the interface is clunky. No way to access other content on the network and doesn't play all types of computer files.
I have both this player, and a Samsung C5500. Both are on the same network, with the same router, and even the ethernet cables are from the same manufacturer bought from New Egg at the same time.
The Samsung is far and away the better player, and is (usually) cheaper too. It's much faster accessing Netflix, it can play almost any file type, it can play them across the network from another computer. It also has a much easier graphic interface.
Also, a few times the Panasonic couldn't find Netflix...I had to re-start the player. Very frustrating. I've yet to encounter that problem with the Samsung.
