Sound is very good, but the features are what really sell it. Although the interface can be a little clunky, the ability to watch amazon video and use pandora without plugging in a computer is great. Also first thing you should do after buying this system is get the App. Not only does the app give you quick access to volume and arrow keys, it also gives you a full duplicate of the actual remote AND quick control over the audio settings like base level and equalizer.
Simple to set-up, simple to use
Given its $399 suggested retail price, the SC-BTT195 offers a whole lot of bang for the buck. It sets up quickly, providing a 3D-capable Blu-ray player and provides access to a nice selection of audio and video streaming services. While the speakers seem a little flimsy, for the price this can be overlooked, especially for anyone who loves movies but lacks the budget and space for a full-fledged component home theater system.
Very good detail, color, contrast, and black levels
The SC-BTT195 is a good option for those looking for a modestly-priced all-in-one system to enjoy Blu-ray, DVD, internet streaming, and to enhance their audio listening experience, especially for movies, in a smaller room environment. For a home theater-in-a-box system in its price class, it is worth consideration.
Adequate for the price
Decent system for the price. Movie sound is quite acceptable for this price point, music not so much. I'm pushing music to the TV from my computer via an Apple TV unit, so it may not be the speakers' fault. There are a couple downsides to this gear, in my opinion - (1) plugging speakers into your DVD player can take some getting used to, especially when it comes time to find sound to go with your cable TV signal or gaming unit; and (2) Panasonic's online menus are hands down the least...
I Love everything about this product; sound quality, dvd/digital radio, and "sleekness". however it's gift and curse lies in the brand. Because I have a Panasonic television as well as an Panasonic home theater they both sometimes control each-other within control functions on the remote control. From me interactions I know the volume, menu, and power buttons are universal to both devices.
I bought this for my mother & father for Christmas. Both are in their mid-80s and live in a town-home community with mostly other adult residents. They live in another state so I was concerned about having to maintain the system from my remote location but, so far, this has not proved to be a problem. The system was very easy to set up. It took about 2-3 hours to get it up and running.
Big movie theater sound
This system was a big surprise for the money. It has very good quality sound and I am pleased with it in every way so far. It was also easy to set up. I ended up placing speakers on the wall with exception of the sub-woofer. Connected it to a 51" Samsung plasma screen. Picture and sound are incredible. If you don't live in the country the sound may disturb your neighbors. Very happy I bought it.
Outstanding picture quality
If you want a 5.1-channel, 3D-ready home cinema system that doesn't take up much space, then the SC-BTT270 could answer your prayers. The compact speakers and slimline main unit are as discreet as a doctor, plus it's bursting with features. Built-in Wi-Fi and more Internet content would be nice, and sound quality doesn't always sizzle, but on the whole this is an impressive system - particularly where picture quality is concerned.
It's a good time to be in the market for a new entry-level 3D Blu-ray HTIB. With its built-in iPod dock and an integrated Wi-Fi module, Panasonic provides a very enticing deal. However, the lack of HDMI inputs means that you'll need to have an ARC-compatible TV or be able to live with this limitation.
Built-in iPod dock
It's a good time to be in the market for a new entry-level 3D Blu-ray HTIB. There are a few sets that go below the S$1,000 barrier these days, and for one that gives you a built-in iPod dock and an integrated Wi-Fi module, Panasonic provides a very enticing deal. However, the lack of HDMI inputs means that you'll need to have an ARC-compatible TV, or be able to live with this limitation.
Decent 3D Blu-ray player
Overall, the SC-BTT270 should be considered good value. For little over £300 you get a decent 3D Blu-ray player and a loud surround sound system. But there's little doubt though that from a quality perspective the enclosures are trailing the electronics. Methinks it's time for Panasonic to start taking loudspeaker design a little more seriously.
Stunning picture quality
The SC-BTT370 is a wonderful Blu-ray home cinema system, offering a terrific range of features and a stylish external design. Its sound quality might not match the punch and poise of a decent separates system but there's still a lot to like, such as the levels of detail, cohesion and openness within the soundstage and the effective new Cinema Surround Plus mode.
Very good picture and sound
Experts say that the 5.1-channel Panasonic SC-BTT370, a home theater in a box built around a well-regarded Blu-ray player, offers a compelling blend of features as well as stellar audio and visual performance. It's also a pretty good value, most say. Image quality is excellent with Blu-ray Discs and very good with DVDs. Audio performance also draws praise, though the home theater system lacks the punch of beefier options.
Best Bang For Your Buck
This home theater system is simply the best you can get at this price point, feature wise and of course SOUND wise.I was originally in the market for a sony system, but soon realized that for my living room which happens to be a meager 17*8 that would be too much and too price. Bottom line THIS is the system for you if u need ok sound for a small space.
Great surround sound
Ordered this to go with the 50in gt25 panasonic plasma tv. You only need the one HDMI cable (make sure it is the latest ver that supports ethernet) to the set to receive audio from other sources on the TV. Make sure you enable ARC. I wish this unit had hdmi inputs but the TV had more then we needed and the sound is very good.
Built-in apps tend to operate slowly
The Panasonic SC-BTT350 is a mid-cost full HD 3D Blu-Ray home theater system. In promotion, Panasonic emphasizes the fact that this home theater system has 2D image technology applied to its 3D technology, so that the images are especially high quality, approaching the quality of original film.
Hi-def 3D playback
After coming to terms with the fact that the SC-BTT350 doesn't offer world-beating sound quality and only a fool would expect it to at this price you can focus on its many virtues, such as hi-def 3D playback, a packed feature list and exceptional ease of use. So if you're looking for a cost-effective, convenient way of getting 3D, hi-def and surround sound in one fell swoop, then the SC-BTT350 deserves a place on your shortlist, if not necessarily at the top.
Excellent Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D playback
For under $350, this little Blu-ray 3D HTiB system is something special, offering a significant sonic upgrade from a TV's built-in speakers, and delivering video performance and features that are fairly astounding for its price point. It also provides an excellent source for 1080p and 3D content. The streaming options are a bit light but it has the important ones (Pandora, Netflix, YouTube, Amazon VOD).
Good System for a Bedroom
This 5.1 DVD system has a specific niche - This system takes up very little space and packs a good quality sound for the price. I listen to music, view DVD's, and sports and movies sourced by an HD cable STB. The surround speakers do their job just fine. My test DVD that I used was Diana Krall's "Live in Paris". It is a standard 480p disc and my DVD player in the LR is also standard. The LR speakers are KLM with two 12" woofers in each and bright dome tweeters.
On the face of it, the SC-PT480 is a fairly unremarkable one-box cinema system, with an old-school DVD deck, understated looks and a seemingly basic spec sheet. But take it for a test drive and it's full of surprises sound quality is highly enjoyable, picture quality is terrific and there's a clutch of decent features to play with, including a built-in iPod dock, USB media playback and loads of sound modes.
