Panasonic disappoints this time
I have been a happy Panasonic customer in the past but this most recent purchase is a real disappointment. This device is so slow to turn on and perform routine tasks that it's painful. I was further disappointed that the remote control can only be programmed with Panasonic TVs. When the remote started acting up I looked for the manual "play" and "pause" button on the unit itself only to find it didn't have any (it only has a "power" button and an "open/close" button).
Disappointing wi-fi & netflix support
This review addresses only the wi-fi & netflix functionality of this player. I think that's fair since you shouldn't be considering it unless you are specifically interested in those features. If you aren't, there's a wide variety of capable, non-networked blu-ray players that are much less expensive.
First off, the wireless card in this player didn't impress me.
The Blu-ray player market seems to be split into two camps â?? cutting-edge, boundary-pushing decks from the big-name brands, and feature-light performance-driven players from third-party manufacturers. The BD-S1900 is undoubtedly one of the latter, and if you approach it as such then you wonâ?? t be disappointed â?? its picture, sound and build quality is as good as youâ??
Many reported cases of malfunctioning units
The Vizio VBR120 is a mid-cost Blu-ray player. This player is equipped with an Ethernet port, and has Vizio Internet Apps. You can connect to the Internet and stream movies and TV shows, get news from the Associated Press or New York Times websites, and connect to Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.
