    Panasonic DMP-MST60 - Streaming Media Player - Overview

    This device looks good on paper but the reviews on Amazon are less than encouraging. It has Netflix, Hulu+, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, Flixter, Vudu, CinemaNow and many other apps. Oh and it has a Web Browser (not sure if it's capable of Flash Video playback) & SKYPE.

    Here is the Panasonic box on Amazon (see link below). In reading the reviews the browser doesn't support Flash:

    Mr. Spock I have a question. I recall reading that you purchased a Chromebook. If I'm not interested in android apps - and just interested in having a good Chrome browser with Flash (primarily for use with the TV) - would the Chromebook be a better option for me than GTV? Which model Chromebook do you own? How does web browsing/videos look on Chromebook when hooked up to the TV? How does it compare with web browsing & streaming internet videos with GTV? Are there less 'Aw Snap!' errors with Chromebook? I would appreciate any feedback. ....

    CatfishRivers, Yes I do have a Chromebook, it's the Samsung model. Other family members have been using mostly for browsing, watching Netflix & YouTube but have not hooked it up to a TV yet. It's great and I haven't encountered a 'Aw Snap!' when I have used it and I'll ask the family if they have. There are a lot of Chrome Extensions/apps which could further enhance the experience. If you are not into the Android apps the most certainly it's a viable alternative for general browsing and media consumption. Although just today I came across an excellent deal on the Microsoft Surface with Windows RT for $169 (cheaper than the Chromebooks) that may serve you better.
