Summary: Simply put this machine is buggy. I've done the latest firmware upgrades and it's not enough to fix the problems. It's most glaring issue in my opinion is its inability to play some Blu-ray disc. The video quality seems very good, however I don't have much to compare it with.
Summary: After read some of the common problems with, I was looking on the internet about opinions & reviews related to the BDP1. Let me tell you that found on Harman's Kardon site an update to this product via usb and correct the most problems found it.
Summary: Well, let me disagree with previous reviewers, as it looks they are some HK bashers. My experience with it is of different sort. I own another Blu-Ray player, highly rated LG BD300, and while it is great machine, with plethora of connections and offers Netflix on-board, HK definitely has an edge...
Summary: As a fan of H/K products, I was very disappointed by the quality of this very expensive product. It is slow and sd upconverting that is about the same as my PS3. Without analog outputs, I am shocked that H/K thinks they can charge $400 for this player!
Summary: I picked one up friday (7/10) from Frys. My first inpressions are the H/K offers a very classy design with medium build quality; it's not as heavy and sturdy as my Pioneer 320, similar to an LG 390. The disc tray is noisy and has an uneven speed that worries me it might be problematic over time.
