It works!


This one works much better than the higher priced Samsung I tried previously. More intuitive, faster boot-up and makes regular DVDs look great

No cons except I came to buy another one and they are out of stock

Yeah Wi-Fi is useless on this one


Yep as already noted, the Wi-Fi is useless unless the modem is sitting on top of the player. Begs the question what is the point? Back to the store it goes.
