Working great after more than 2 years


" For ordinary 2D and 3D Blu-ray discs the unit has worked flawlessly. We do not use it very often however since we only use it with a projector and those nights are less than weekly. "

Slim, looks nice, good quality picture, easy to set up and use, good little product and value for money especially at sale price :)

Can be a little bit noisy when loading film, could also be a bit quicker when loading

This product seems to run any disk (not just dvd) that I throw on it!! No more guessing....will it play?


" As I said above, it'll take anything I throw at -divix,dvd BR, dvdBR3D,many computer formats etc. I got this unit as a gift in early Dec. from my son (he bouhgt one to go with his 3D tv) and I love it!!- I don't have a 3D tv but just a HDMI...

Bright display , Durable , Realistic color , will play more formats then most players

Excellent price, designed for the technically challenged.


" We were amazed at the way this inexpensive DVD player practically installed itself. It is very intuitive and seems to know what we want it to do. For the techically-challenged, this is an excellent choice. "

Built-in speakers , Bright display , Inexpensive , Realistic color
