Not worth it

 

It freezes regularly and I have to unplug and replug it, and then it takes a while to power up again. Netflix is very slow to load and navigate. Not worth the savings in my opinion, as extra $ bought me another brand for which I have no complaints.

good - but you need to plug a USB (>2GB) in.

 

It is a good player. But you need to plug a more than 2GB USB memory stick.

works fine

 

I bought this blu ray player on sale. I've had no problems with it. It plays movies fine, and it was cheap so I'm happy with it!

Consumer review (bestbuy.ca)

Good Value

 

Plays BD and movies on USB stick. Has Netflix built in. Make sure you do a software upgrade. Only dislike is that it is slow to boot up and get an IP address. Only one connection available which is HDMI.
