Summary: Haven't been able to get it to play blu ray discs. It has a beautiful picture on regular DVDs, but never worked with blu ray. I googled and found that I probably needed to upgrade the firmware in order to get it to play blu ray discs. Of course, the owner's manual doesn't have instructions on how to update the firmware and it was not easy to find on Magnavox's site. The update would not go through. Should've spent more and got something that actually worked.
Summary: Alrightt I bought this at Walmart way back in 2009 or 2010 I really can't remember. I bought this for my bedroom and have used it a lot and I mean a lot. And now it's 2014 and this player works. It as never once gave out on me or stopped working. The only problem now is in blu rays and DVD it pauses in the middle of watching a movie for like 5 seconds then starts playing but it only does this once in a while. I really recommend this to anyone.
Summary: This player works okay. Picture quality is good. The one problem I had with this blu-ray player is after two months the remote no longer worked as I had to order another one. Currently works fine.
Summary: Great price for the player, but the control to box is very slow to react and you have to be exactly in a direct line to the signal from the remote to the box or it doesn't work at all. Will probably buy a better quality one in the future.
Summary: Purchased this unit about 8 months ago at Walmart's. A month ago I noticed the DVD drawer started to progressively slow down in opening and closing. I don't have a large library of blu-ray dvds so it couldn't be from excessive usage. And then 2 weeks ago the sound just went although the picture was fine. Purchased a new dvd cleaning disc...nope..wasn't the problem. Guess it's time to spring for a new player!
Allows 1080i Component out--good for projectors w/VGA or Component In

Summary: I've had this for a little over two years, and it's worked fine. I updated the firmware once, and since then it has played every Blu-ray I've tried on it (except 3D blu-rays, of course). It's no speed demon, but it works. Its #1 "feature" is that it will can send 1080i over component (because it was made before December 31, 2010).
Summary: We've used this player everyday for approximately six months with no negative issues. We paid nearly three times this amount for a new one which was another brand and have had constant problems. Highly recommended.
Summary: I bought this product 3 years ago in December 2009. I finally just upgraded to a new Sony blu ray player that streams Netflix, Amazon, etc. I am not getting rid of this unit, however. I've never had a problem with playing standard or blu ray discs in this player. The only downfall is a slow load time for blu ray discs.
