ok, but built in obsolescence

ray, Amazon

  • Summary: had this for several years and had some problems with certain Blu-ray discs not being recognized. most recently, iron man 3. contacted Magnavox, and after ensuring I had the latest firmware(I did), they told me that the player would not support that disc and no future firmware updates were planned for this model. they suggested I buy a newer player. this will be my last Magnavox.

Just OK

Nicholas J Ludwiczak, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this DVD Player about 1-1/2 years ago. I would say it's just OK. I would not buy it again. Pro's: has a good picture, able to connect to a network (Netflix, ect.), has wireless Con's: takes a really long time to start, load movies, eject. Controls are not intuitive and hard to figure out. Wireless is weak and loses connection about every week. My wireless USB widget stopped working about a week ago. Now only wired connection works.

Help for WiFi Problems

Techvegas, Amazon
5 January 2013
  • Summary: I, like many others, was getting a terribly weak wifi signal even when other devices in the same room connected without problem. If you're having trouble with WiFi connection, try this: 1. Remove the wifi dongle from the back of the player and add a USB extension cord. If your player is in an entertainment center, relocate the dongle outside of the wiring ports. 2. Set up your wireless as directed by prompts. 3.

Recorded DVDs don't work well on this machine

jadedpcguy, Amazon
8 October 2012
  • Summary: If you have a large library of recorded DVDs either +R or -R steer clear of this player. Though it advertises that -Rs work the performance is very spotty. Some will play but others mastered in the same way with the same type of menus, compression, and videos stutter so badly that they are unwatchable. Some recorded DVDs make the machine completely seize up or just refuse to play.

Frustatingly slow interface but it gets the job done

JohannesBaker, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: I bought this Netflix-enabled blu-ray player at Walmart on Black Friday for $70.  I'm pretty sure this price was the result of a bungled black-friday ad for the cheaper non-netflix-enabled 51 2 0 model that mistakenly claimed that model was netflix-enabled.  The regular price for this player is (and was) $118.

  • Summary: I have this player from walmart works well for price software not the best for netflix. Everything needs to be in instant view. No way to search or have any recommendations on things to watch. Software update no longer even on magnavox website.

Adequate

JayDubya "JayDubya", Amazon
19 August 2012
  • Summary: I received the blu-ray player and installed it into my TV system. Unfortunately, I have a Magnavox DVR that uses the same remote as the player. If I carefully point the remote to the opposite side of the player away from the DVR, it will turn on the player unit only. If I point it to the opposite side of the DVR away from the blu-ray player, it will turn on only the DVR. What a pain! Once on, as long as the other is not on, it works alright.

  • Summary: I like this player though I wish it had more stuff like Pandora. Works just fine and doesn't take long to boot up either.

Incredible reliability and many features

Brother Lawrence, Amazon
5 December 2011
  • Summary: All the features you would want for a blu-ray player. Has Netflix, VuDu, and Blockbuster services available. It connects to my wireless router with no problems through a wireless LAN and can stream HD movies from my computer flawlessly. It even has an SD card slot in the front for storage of BD-ROM data. It has everything I need from a blu-ray player and is very reliable.
