500 characters aren't enough to allow to rave about how groovy this unit is. Half the depth of my old one, it boots up FAST. Firmware updated flawlessly. Picture is awesome. Internet apps beat my Vizio TV hands DOWN. UI is intuitive and well thought out. Web apps are solid, ready to test out the file sharing and file playing this weekend. So far, highly recommend this player.
The only reason I bought this BD player because of twins HDMI output and I have an older receiver that does not support 3D. I was debating between this BD player and Samsung BD-D6700. I have Samsung BD-C6700 and I think It is better and has more features than this Panasonic DMP-BDT310 even though it is 1 year older. I thought I would give Panasonic a chance but I regret it now that I did. Panasonic advertises that there is an APP for this on Android market, I haven't seen one yet.
Advanced 2D image technology accumulated over the years atthe Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory (PHL) has also been applied to 3D image playback, allowing high quality images to approach original film quality. Lifelike 3D images with dramatic leaping effects and enhanced depth, luster and texture are beautifully reproduced.
The 2D-3D Conversion makes it possible to convert images from DVDs and Blu-ray Discs into 3D with natural depth perception. So you can watch your prized DVD movie collection in 3D with real-life depth, for even greater viewing enjoyment.
3D Effect Controller
The 3D Effect Controller lets you moderate the leaping effects of 3D images. It also lets you adjust the amount of depth, so you can view expansive images and enjoy movies with exactly the kind of 3D effects you want.
