Wired is more reliable. If you have a lot of devices on your wifi, you might experience more dropped packets, which may lead to some latency. If you don't have a large family and devices competing...

I only ever owned one standalone DVD player, and I don't remember if it had such a feature. Maybe DVD players have better features than BD players today then. I have two 2013 BD players and I had a...

With BD, it depends on the coding on the disc. The PS3 saves the data to the device, regardless. So this applies to DVDs. I often am watching a few series on DVDs mixed with BD discs and I can switch...

Oh, sorry. The 230 is a Panasonic. I like the PS3, which is still one of the best all-around media players. And it is still the only BD player that resumes where you left off even after removing the...

I have a 230 from 2013 and you can't enable the Progressive mode to anything but Auto and make it stick. Unless it is set to Video, DVDs will show jagged lines when moving rapidly, like an animated...

I had my 65" Panasonic plasma wall mounted at slightly more than eye level so that the sound bar sitting on the entertainment center didn't block the TV's sensor. We are in the process of moving, and...

I knew someone would say, "Get an Oppo." :D Of course, very few consumers know about them or will purchase one given their high price tag. The Sony S7200 seems to try and come close to that high-end...

Unfortunately, that is the trend. Every player this year is small, ugly, cheap plastic. Each year it seems to get worse. They really aren't helping drive the sale of Blu-ray with these inexpensive...

You've mentioned this a few times before. What settings need to be changed to get the most out of a Panny? I have the BDT230 from 2013 and it doesn't have many picture options.

Considering you have an S6200 I don't see a compelling reason to replace it with this year's model. Other than the 24p support, you're gaining nothing from what I can see.

I considered picking up...

On my 230 Panasonic BD player and S64 I am using HDMI-CEC and that allows me to use my BD player's remote to control the TV volume and input, but the TV remote cannot control the BD player. It's odd,...

Yes, the 360 from Panasonic has a display. One issue with my 2013 Panasonic 230 is that when watching DVDs I noticed that with fast-action animation, such as lip movements, you'll see jagged lines...

That's interesting. I would have thought that the Roku would have more apps and that they would be more current. I still feel that in general a media streamer is a better option, but it is nice that...

I see that BB Online has the S1500 and S3500 available now. The S5500 is still available to pre-order. Last night I was in my local BB and they didn't yet have the new players in stock. Let us know...

The most notable difference is a standalone player is quieter, and more energy efficient. I own a PS3 Slim and a 2013 Panasonic BD player. I even had a Sony S5100 briefly last year. For Blu-ray, I...

Thanks for pointing out that thread. I am happy with the upscaling from the PS3, I was just curious as to why it doesn't display those columns. No one seems to know.
