Refurb unit looks, works like new

 

Box is obviously not the retail version, but that's the only difference I can see. Worked on set up just fine. Took a little tweaking to get Digital sound right, but controls were fairly easy to figure out. Hate the downloadable only manual, but that's...

No WI-FI

 

Even for a recertified item, packaging caused concern since the item was not properly boxed or taped for the rigors of shipment.

No built-in Wi-Fi, works only with tethered ethernet cable.

It plays regular DVD and Blu-Ray but not tried 3-D yet so no comment.

The unit has fine scratches from normal wear and tear on the front and the remote. Could only get one App working (web videos) but thats all.

WOW!

 

This is a refurb? Coulda fooled me! It looks and plays like a new unit. This is a great player. It loads a little slow but it plays great. It has more features than I can use but that's a good thing. I recommend this player but make sure you pick up an...
