Sylvania NB501SL9 Blue Ray Player


Would buy it again and recommend it.

From inserting disc to showing up on screen is about 18 seconds. A lifetime for instant gratification folks ; Menues and everything else is not delayed at all ; Don't see anything wrong wit it ; It costs significantly less than other brands, better...

Poor choice



It navigated painfully slow through its menu and it took forever for it to open up when you first turned it on ; The unit had played about 8 or 9 disks total when it wouldn't unload the DVD it had inside. I had to take the machine apart to get the disk...

Pausing and Restarting Features of the Sylvania NB530SLX BluRay ”

Inexpensive, easy to operate, has played 50+ BD discs to-date, without any glitches

Sylvania BluRay CD Player is reasonable priced, simple to use. ”


I am not very knowledgable about technical things, and I don't have a lot of money.  This  player was very reasonable priced, and easy to hook up to my TV.  I have had it for about a year, and have had no problems.
