Insignia NS-WBRDVD3 Review: Inexpensive 3D Blu-ray Player Makes Sacrifices

 

With the Insignia NS-WBRDVD3, 3D Blu-ray players become a commodity. The $120 price (as of November 17, 2011) puts this player in the price range of low-end 2D models. But in exchange for that price, you'll have to lower your expectations, especially...

3D capability ; Astonishingly low price for a 3D player

Lacks Hulu Plus ; Disappointing image quality ; No network-based multimedia ; Uninformative menus

Though 3D Blu-ray players don't come any cheaper than the NS-WBRDVD3, this model's unexceptional image quality and sparse Internet options make it less of a bargain than it appears to be.

Insignia NS-WBRDVD2: Middling Performance From an Inexpensive Blu-ray Player

 

No one would mistake the Insignia NS-WBRDVD2 for a great Blu-ray player. Its images, while often very good, don't measure up to those of the best players. It can't access media files off your home network. Using it can often be clumsy and irritating,...

Low price ; Very good, sometimes superb Blu-ray image quality ; Some remote buttons glow in the dark

Unhelpful on-screen menus and printed documentation ; No YouTube ; Clumsy remote control

You can't expect a great Blu-ray player for $150, but the Insignia NS-WBRDVD2 delivers a more-than-fair product for the price.

Great price/performance ratio ; Addition of DTS-HD Master Audio Essential ; WiFi Capable ; Nice USB functionality

Remote could be smaller

With notable improvements over its predecessor, the Insignia NS-WBRDVD connected Blu-ray player is a great addition to any home theater.

Inexpensive. Built-in Wi-Fi

Slow to load discs. Has difficulty loading some discs at all. Awkward remote. Few online services available

Review: Insignia NS-WBRDVD2 Blu-ray player

 

For all its faults, the NS-WBRDVD2 covers the basics. You can stream Netflix, music, and pay-per-view movies. You can watch and listen to your own home media. And when you insert a Blu-ray disc, you'll get a very fine image for a player in this price...

Another shortcoming will probably hit you the second time you turn on the player. Unlike every other Blu-ray player I have looked at, you cannot turn on the NS-WBRDVD2 by pressing either of the Open/Close buttons (the one on the player or the one on...

Tons of features, low price

 

This player has everything that you could possibly need in a player at a price way lower than any of the competitors. Not only does it play Blu Rays and DVDs, but it also streams Netflix, has a built in WiFi card (no extra hardware needed), AND you can...

A good Blu Ray player ; Built in WiFi card ; USB in that allows the hook up of an external hard drive or flash drive to play stored DivX movies ; Streams Netflix

Has issues playing even slightly scratched DVDs ; Latest firmware must be installed before Netflix can be streamed (easily found on Best Buy's web site)

If I win it I will tell you all about it.

 

It might be free

It might not be free

Consumer review by:

So many to choose from and so much technical details

 

If I win this at CNET, great! If not, I'll go out to Best Buy this weekend and purchase it anyway to surprise my wife.

So much info. - some of it is misleading, such as they don't tell you what it means to be Wi-Fi ready or requires an adapter. I've found CNET to provide good insight into the products I'm interested in. Here's hoping to win this baby

I'm going on recommendations
