bad bad bad


Don't buy anything serviced by FunaiService

Had it 4 months, then it stopped reading ANY kind of discs. Called support (FunaiService, NOT Sylvania btw), and was told I to upgrade firmware. Followed instructions to the letter,burn the firmware onto a CD,setup the blu-ray to read it, isn't hard

and NOW, I get a 0x20 failure ; Looking on the internet, most ppl are now told to send it in for repairs at their OWN cost, as upgrading the Firmware kills any warranties you might have ; Sad

Great, dependable Blu-Ray player


I am a RadioShack franchise manager, and I use this Blu-Ray player for our showroom display unit. It is in use from 7am to 6pm 5 days a week, and it works just as good now as it did the day we took it out of the box. I used to use a Samsung Blu-Ray...

very good player


This is a great product that I use daily. The only beef I have is the 30-60 seconds it takes to load the movie once I put it in but that's the same with ALL BD players. Once it's in its a beautiful picture and well worth it. Got it on sale too!

Backwards compatibility, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, High Quality Picture
