Summary: Three years ago we purchased an Insignia Blu Ray player. Now it is outdated and will not play new Blu Rays . We called Insignia regarding this, and they said tough luck. One manager went as far as you say the customer is always wrong and perhaps we should have purchased Sony. I can't believe a company would be so awful. After 3 years a Blu Ray player will not work on new movies anymore .
Summary: I bought this product upon Consumer Reports recommdation. It was a real disappointment. It takes several minutes for the drawer to open and the disk to load. The quality of the picture and sound were great- espcially for the price, However we have had it a little over a year before it stopped working- can't read any disks. My advise- DO NOT BUY!
Had two of these and wanted to throw both out the window...

Summary: Both of the ones we had suddenly stopped playing the DVD's we had always successfully played on it in the past. Blu ray's didn't work, DVD's didn't work. We had the same problem with both, they each only lasted a few months. What a crock!
This product is horribly flawed for netflix playback!

Summary: I bought this player thinking it would be a great bluray/netflix combo. Well guess what, I have a wireless n network in close proximity, and this player has had nothing but problems connecting to netflix since I got it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I really wish I could smash a hammer through it if I wouldn't regret the money I spent on it. Maybe when I'm rich one day I'll smash a hammer through this and then run it over with my car. Argh.
Summary: The main reasons I hate, yes hate, this blu-ray player. 1) The remote is terrible. The buttons don't work unless you mash down on them with a lot of force, and even then sometimes they don't work. Get a universal remote, you say? There are NO UNIVERSAL REMOTES THAT WORK WITH THIS despite what the salesmen may tell you. 2) Does not work with WEP but does not state this in the manual.
Summary: I found a great deal on the wireless version of this dvd player & bought it to stream netflix. When I bought it I had high speed internet & it worked great! That same week I had fios installed and could no longer get netflix to connect. After many phone calls & frustration trying to get netflix to work, I was told by insignia tech support that their player is not currently compatible with verizon fios & that I should return it.
