Bought this as an upgrade from my previous Panasonic all in one system, a BT210. My old one didn't have internet connectability or Netflix, and was very slow starting and loading up.
Operation - The BTT350 is a significant step forward. The startup is much faster, the menus are much better and make much more sense. Big thumbs up
Sound - Decent but not great. A bit of a downgrade from my old BT210. They really skimped on the speakers for this one in order to keep the price down. I actually ended up using the speakers from my BT210 on my new one in order to get better sound. Since most people won't have that option, beware, the sound is decent but not great.
Picture. A real strength. Haven't noticed any pixelization and all colors come in crystal clear.
Internet. Fairly easy to set up. The on screen menus guide you pretty well. Wired internet works flawlessly and sets up in minutes. Wireless is another story. Panasonic's proprietary wireless dongle is mediocre at best. Setup takes much longer and drops connection from time to time for no apparent reason.
The only apps that come with this unit are Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Movies and some lame picture sharing thing that nobody ever uses. I keep hoping there will be more added but so far nothing.
The Netflix streams well but the menus are limited. It only lists what is already in the queue, and will not let you search the Netflix database for more movies, like the Wii in my mancave does.
Youtube searches are frustrating and not usually worth the trouble.
All in all it does what we wanted. Gave us automatic firmware updates via wifi (no more downloads and disc burning), allowed us to switch from Blockbuster to Netflix, didn't cost us a whole lot. That's pretty much all we wanted so we're more or less happy. But if you're looking for a top end system with booming sound, you'll want to pay a few hundred more.
--UPDATE, JUNE 2012-- This unit has gotten noticeably better since my original 3 star review. Several firmware updates have added many new apps and fixed some minor functionality glitches. Plus, when we re-arranged the living room, the dropped connectivity issues completely disappeared. Apparently it didn't like that one corner, but is fine with the new location.
Still only 4 stars for the lack of search capability in Netflix and the wimpy speakers that came with it, but it has certainly cemented itself and looks like it'll last long enough as our primary unit to see how the 3D looks when we upgrade our TV later this year.
