Excerpt: Don't waste your money on this unless you want a simple Blu-Ray Player. I had this product for a year before finally hooking up with Netflix. It worked fine with Netflix for a few days, and suddenly I can't get it to even recognize my wireless network.
Excerpt: The unit worked fine for about one month. Since then it has been nothing but trouble.
For MONTHS it has had some kind of Service Update message that appears every time I use it that makes no sense. Annoying.
It NEVER remembers I am logged in to Netflix.
Summary: Just received this unit and it has serious wifi problems. It can only detect two networks out of the dozen-ish everything else in my house can detect, and they are the two with the worst signal, not to mention not my network. So I can not connect it, even manually inputting my info into the unit.
Excerpt: the Hulu app has never worked properly. the vudu app now states that it must be refurbished (what ever that means). and no matter what the Netflix, hulu and youtube apps all shut off in the middle of shows for no reason every single day. the dics player works great, but the apps are terrible.

Summary: You have to have this thing pretty close to your wireless or directly plugged in for it to work. We have pretty fast internet and this unit can't seem to keep up. It constantly loses connection and will stream at very low quality.
Summary: I don't really understand electronics. I needed a Blu-ray player with internet and it worked perfectly. It has Wi-fi, so I didn't need internet cords or anything else but an HDMI cord, that by the way doesn't come with it. I love it.
Excerpt: Have been using the player a couple of months now. The bluRay player works great. The WiFi is great for use with Netflix, which we use a lot. So far I have not encountered any problems or con's for this product.
Summary: I haven't used the player for Blu Rays or DVDs. It randomly has issues playing certain Netflix titles that any other Netflix enabled device in our home won't have any issue playing. No MLB.tv support.
Little Icon pops up repeatedly while watching movies. Drives me insane.

Summary: Pros: It plays Blu-Rays, it plays DVDs. That's all I really wanted. Cons: Loaded up with features that every other device I own can do. (I suppose you'd be hard pressed to find a BD player that doesn't have a netflix icon on the homescreen.
