TOSHIBA BDX5500

 

Does a good job of upscalling DVDs and connects to Netflix like a computer. Comes with many apps. It can be mounted vertical and is compact in size. It comes with a 12v dc 1 Amp power supply which means it could be used in a automobile if needed.

Some of the buttons on the remote control are a bit too close together but it still works good.

Reduces Ghosting best 3Dplayer out

 

Get this 3D Blu ray player here I was watching Underworld Awakening in 3d and I had almost no ghosting, the image stayed together 98% of the time I thought it was my TV causing the ghosting but now I realize it's the older 3d players that cause ghosting.

It lock up on me once having it paused too long.
