Dog slow and only plays 1/2 of my BDs

Henri Hein "Joss Whedon Fan", Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: This is a terrible player. It only plays about 1/2 of any BDs I pop into it. OK, maybe 2/3s, but it feels like 1/2. I have even experienced that it will play only some discs in a set, such as a boxed set or a season's worth of a show. Sometimes it won't even relinquish the disc and I have to power it completely off to reset it. These are BDs that play in my computer, so I know it is not the BDs themselves.

Don't Buy...may break shortly

Optimus Primus, Amazon
19 August 2011
  • Summary: This worked fine for a year, then broke. The player freezes in various modes of operation. The technician said it needs service. We treated it well. It just wasn't reliable. Just ordered a new Panasonic and will hopefully have better luck.

Buy it because you have DVD's - you do not need Blu-Rays!

Protest the Comparisons, Amazon
9 March 2010
  • Summary: I rarely review, but I do feel like I should for this Blu-Ray player. Bottom line: up-scaling is so good that you do not need to rent Blu-Rays. I am somewhat of an audiophile, and overall I feel like I have good eye for differences in video, and so I have seen enough at this point to realize that I almost cannot tell the difference on this unit between regular DVD and Blu-Ray.

JVC Home XVBP Blu-ray Disc Player

Mother Beaver (Gretchen) "Gretchen", Amazon
6 February 2010
  • Summary: Nice looking equipment that works flawlessly. Fast loading and reading of disc that produces exceptional HD content. For the price this Blu-ray player is one of the best I've used. Had Amazon mail the unit to my 90 year old mother-in-law and my husband tested the unit on his recent visit to his mother's home in Louisiana.

the best performer/price/load speed ratio for a BD player !!

Anthony L. Mueller, Amazon
27 December 2009
  • Summary: I wanted to take the time and find the proper BD player for my needs, just like I did buying my HDTV's - which means a lot of reading on the AVS forums plus reading Amazon & CNET reviews as well. I never burn my own disc, rentals and store bought blu ray's only, plus CD's. I have no need for the LIVE streaming content either, I have DirecTV for any PPV source.

not an oppo

Tony Wright, Amazon
20 December 2009
  • Summary: Contrary to what others have said, this is not nearly as good as an oppo. I have had many compatibility problems with different disks and formats. I dont know what program others are using to get thier avi files, but right in the manual it states that it does not play divx, does play xvid. I have no idea why it is like that, but it is hit or miss on any format it plays. Many will play but have artifacting, very severe on mp4 files, just some dots on avi's.
