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...
Excellent hi-def pictures
The Panasonic SC-BTT190 is a solid Blu-ray system but not one of Panasonic's best. Aesthetically it doesn't inspire the same levels of excitement as an LG or Samsung, its sound quality loses polish at volumes other speakers take in their stride, and the lack of HDMI inputs and built-in Wi-Fi makes the step-up SC-BTT290 a more appealing prospect.
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.
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).
I purchased the Panasonic SC-BTT750 5.1 Home Entertainment system and so far I have not been dissapointed. It comes with blue-ray, it's wireless, and the sound is adequate. The Netflix, and Pandora options that come with the online entertainment make this system very attractive in terms of having everything you need in an entertainment system.
I gave the system a 4 only because the speakers are good, but I don't consider them great.
Effective surround sensation when speakers are positioned properly
The Panasonic SC-BTT750 is a high mid-priced 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.
Simple to install right out of the box
The Panasonic SC-BT330 is a high-end all-in-one home theatre system with 5.1 channel surround sound. Like its younger brother, the Panasonic SC-BT230, the SC-BT330 features a Blu-Ray ROM drive with DVD/DVD-R/DVD-RW compatibility, an integrated universal iPod/iPhone dock and Audio Return Channel compatibility.
Feature list is terrific
Although the Panasonic SC-BT330 is by no means the perfect one-box system, there are certainly more pros than cons. Its feature list is terrific, the highlights of which are media streaming, Viera Cast and a built-in iPod dock â?? plus the HDMI audio return channel will be a welcome addition for those with compatible TVs.
Very few home-cinema kits manage to match picture and sound quality, with the latter usually the one to fall short. The Panasonic SC-BT330 is no different. Its audio can't quite match its impressive Blu-ray pictures, and, as you turn up the volume, it sounds increasingly raspy.
Features a wide array of online services that are actively being expanded upon
The Panasonic SC-BT230 is a high-end all-in-one home theatre system with 5.1 channel surround sound. It comes equipped with Panasonic's bamboo cone speakers which allow for a more responsive sound, a Blu-Ray/DVD/DVD-R/DVD-RW player and a universal iPod/iPhone dock for playback through the SC-BT230's 5.1 channel speaker setup.
Sizzling picture quality
Although we're impressed by the SC-BT230's range of features, sizzling picture quality and ease of use, it's sound quality is sorely disappointing. Normally we'd cut this system some slack based on its bargain price, but Sony's BDV-E370 manages to deliver better audio quality for a similar amount of money, as well as throwing a wider range of online content, 3D compatibility, auto calibration and faster disc loading into the bargain.
Easy to use
If you're looking for a convenient Blu-ray system with lots of features and cracking pictures, and you're not overly fussed about getting the best sound quality, then the SC-BT230 is worth a look. But considering what's in the box, £450 seems remarkably expensive particularly when you consider the lack of built-in Wi-Fi and HDMI inputs.
Surprisingly good sound from such a small package
For a small investment, this little HTiB system offers an excellent upgrade to a TV's built-in speakers, transforming your movie and TV viewing into a more cinematic experience. The system also feeds your HDTV with some fine 1080p HD material on Blu-ray Disc as well as a number of high quality web-based streaming options. Pandora internet music streaming is not available yet but should be coming this summer in a firmware upgrade.
