I hooked it up and got it going easily. Blu-Ray picture on The Last Emperor was impressive and I watched the entire 2h45m without problem. However, other times it will flash white over the entire display or just the bottom 1/2 to 1/3 every minute or so. This happened on Blu-Ray disc, DVD, Netflix, even on the Panasonic home screen. Intermittent, unpredictable, and thoroughly irritating. An email to Panasonic product support suggested doing a hard reset, which had no effect on the problem. They had no further suggestion on a user-applied fix.

This WHITE FLASH seems to be a common problem reported across the Internet about machines from various vendors. (Search using Google on +Panasonic +"blu ray" +"white flash" and get 20,000+ hits.)

I suggest anyone buying this machine or one of the other related models may want to make sure that the seller has a fair returns policy in case they run into the same problem. Glad I bought local and isolated the issue within 14 days.

Excelent review.
I have the possibility of renewing my little SONY bluray player BDP S-350, and here where I live, I have the opportunity to purchase two Panasonic players, which in some reviews both have good reviews within the price range (200 U $).
I seek to improve the performance of audio and video quality. I've certainly heard that Panasonic has good relevant concepts in the video, thanks to PHL Reference Chroma Processor Plus and P4HD. The Panasonic BDT-300 has some nice features, including dual HDMI and 7.1 analog output, among others. The second player option, the new BDT-110 (not the BDT-210) has other features of most current software, 2D to 3D conversion, DLNA certification, etc, but I am more interested in quality audio and video that I can get. (the BDT-300 apparently would be more high level of construction, although the previous year)
BDT-110 have similar performance in audio and video that BDT-210 of this article?
In my country, now both have similar prices. What do you recomend between these two options?. I want to buy a player with the best quality for audio and video
Thank you very much for your kind response.

I'll use this player to upgrade my old Sony BDP-350 and improve performance in audio and video, keeping for a while my old Sony STR-DE695 amplifier ( without HDMI, but with 5.1 analog input). The BDP-350 don't have 5.1 or 7.1 analog outputs, so that is currently connected by coaxial analog output. The sound is not really HD, isn´t it?

Thank you.

I read your review on the Panasonic ST30 vs S30. If I get the non-3D S30, do you have a recommendation for a blu-ray player. I was looking at the Panasonic BD210 which is 3D capable. But since I'm not getting a 3D TV, do you have an alternative that's comparable to the BD210?

Thanks for your valuable comments. A few months ago I upgraded my home theater and bought the Panasonic DMP-BDT220, TV Viera 50GT50 and RX-V673 Yamaha amplifier. It's been a big change and I really enjoyed it.
Again thank you very much to all the team
