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.
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.
Summary: Two problems with this player: did not play region 2 dvds and JVC did not repair it correctly. The player initially did handle DVDs from multiple regions, but stopped playing Region 2 within the one-year warranty. I mailed to JVC, which charged me $85 for labor (only covered for first 3 months), but it still didn't work with Region 2 when returned to me. Waste of money.
Summary: I purchased this blu ray player is August! Now the player says disc error and no disc on 3 brand new out of the shrink wrap blu ray discs. This player has also stopped playing regular dvds. The remote if you can call it that would sometimes pop up the blu ray menus and sometimes not. The remote never repeated chapters or the titles. Instead you get a lovely red circle with a slash through it. I paid full price for this player.
