It's all I need for now.


Extremely good value, high performance player. I'm glad I chose it.

I got this as an intro to Blu-ray and my CD player died. Blu-ray performance great. Extras such as access to Youtube and WiFi connectivity etc make it outstanding

Not entirely convinced by audio quality with CD's but maybe thats just me

Great product, the design and looks are outstanding.


Bottm-Line: everything I've said above sum this unit up. a must have. 3d plays very well. I also like the audio menu simple yet, every thing u need to change from pcm or bit stream for dummies (very simplistic) Under the video menu u can even adjust...

Love the wifi capabilites, and the ablity to connect to my home network with a single click. Im totaly impressed with this unit, Blu-ray work pretty fast too. no long lag time to start-up. Updates not a problem either through the software update

would have been nice to have a backlit remote, but other than that can't say any thing negitive

Was a good player until firmware update


I just keep hoping a future firmware will fix the problem but I don't know how long I'm willing to wait before just buying a new one.

Plays just about everything I want it to play including DivX, AVI home videos, Netflix, etc. Even includes DLNA which is a little clunky but still available and works. I was able to play media shared on my Windows 7 PC ; Includes a USB port for...

Ever since firmware update ver. BD.8.97.141D the audio drops out periodically no matter what media I'm watching. with Netflix the audio goes away for about 20 seconds every 15-20 minutes, with BD or DVD it drops for about a second every 5-10 minutes,...

I don't normally take the time to write a review buy I am so impressed with this unit I had to post my input. I am an audiophile and musician, I own Parasound, Vandersteen etc. so I KNOW QUALITY!! and this is a quality unit second to none to my Denon...

Great BD player, upscales older DVD'S to near HD quality, Streams Netflix flawlessly without a hiccup, Pandora sounds great

Slow updates

Consumer review by:

Great so far


Its mind boggling that this player gives so many options to play your media. Newegg ships this product in its original box which makes it vulnerable if it is lying at your doorstep when delivered.

In built WIFI is fast, DLNA works great, easy user interface

Firmware updates are slow and I had not got a single successful update installed yet. I am going to give up on that

Outstanding Blu-ray player!


Got it for $169 w/ FS. You can't beat that for what this player can do. It's an amazing deal. You find it for that price, you buy it. No questions.

I don't get excited about electronics, stuff either works or it doesn't. Well, this player works, and it works so well that I'm excited. It's just an amazing piece of hardware ; 1. Plays everything I throw at it; all discs, files from network drives,...

1. Updates are a b*tch. Going to the newest firmware took over an hour. If you want to do it, just set it to start and go to bed ; That's about it

Great Buy


Replaces a Sony BDP-S360 that stopped playing Blu-Ray disks exactly two months after the warrany expired! Beats the Sony hands-down in loading time and quality of picture & sound.

Easy set up & interface. Great picture, sound and remote control

Newegg dropped the price $15.00 one week after I bought it
