Great and Useless

 

I needed something more than just a blue-ray player and was unimpressed. I need something that has inputs.

Blue-ray, good surround, and nice looking

The wifi is weak and the apps list is weak as well. Also, my pet peve with this, is that I can't run audio to this from an outside source. I use my computer and this for my projector and whenever I use my computer the surround sound is useless.

Nice little system for the $$$

 

Alright, so this isn't a $500+ Bose or Onkyo system. All the people b!+ching that this thing doesn't have wireless speakers at this price need a reality check. Or that it doesn't support more streaming apps. It does what it says it does, and it does it...

BluRay, 5.1 surround sound, Optical S/PDIF in, ARC, sounds good, built in WiFi

For the price I can't really find any cons. ( I paid ~ $85)

Decent

 

It looks nice and it sounds pretty good. It was decent for the price

Extremely slow when using Netflix on it. It also sometimes freezes on me which causes me to have to restart the entire thing

All Junk

 

First problem it was packed very poorly, then it went downhill from there: no instructions except the usual warnings ( don't get it wet , etc ), no manual, wires on speakers were tangled not properly wrapped and tied, the DVD did come on when plugged...
