Summary: Get a PS3. Discs load and eject immediately.
Pros: None really.
Cons: DISC TRAY takes amazingly long to open and shut. I'm serious - push the open - wait 30 seconds then it finally open. Press close again - wait 30 seconds for the tray to retract???!!!! I end up just forcing the tray back in with my hand.
Summary: I bought this unit for my sister 2 years ago. At the time we were thrilled with it, save for the non-wi-fi, but whatever. My sister told me that the unit no longer plays blurays, rendering her blu collection useless. I recently checked out the unit, hoping that I could fix it. I updated the firmware. Gave it a 2GB SD Card. Turned off BluRay Live. Did a variety of things, but the unit simply says it can't read any bluray discs. As of now, it can only play DVDS.
Summary: Bottom-Line: Love, love, love this player! I recently upgraded my standard satellite receiver to a Dish Network ViP722 HD-DVR that offers up to 55 hours of recorded HD programming. Along with the HD-DVR, I also acquired a Sony BRAVIA XRB 32-in LCD HDTV. Two HD components were in place, but I needed a third, a DVD player capable of playing DVD's at 1080p.
Summary: Not a good blueray player. 1. Wait time just for the disk drive to open is 30-40 secs. My cheap $40 dvd player opens instantly. 2. Load time for BD can be up to 5 mins, but on average is 3 mins. 3. The player has difficulty completing a movie without having a disk read error, thus scrambling the picture. 4. The player does not have a playback ability; therefore you have to restart a disk from the beginning if you turn the player off.
Summary: Sometimes it makes a humming noise from the disc spinning and then it'll stop. Only happened a few times. Pain in the butt to set up, but I am electronically challenged, I did it in 2 hours. For the price this is great. Love the picture quality. Would buy this again.
Summary: I used usual white-yellow-red cables provided with unit and color does not work properly. I tried other spare cables of this sort but still didn't fix problem.. I thought it was time for me to upgrade to an HDMI cable so went out and bought one and unit works fine. If you already own HDMI cable (or are willing to spend the extra $), this is a great deal.
Summary: When I ordered the unit, I think I had lower expectations. I was pleasantly surprised when the player arrived a day earlier than I expected, and in pristine condition, with all the cables (including an HDMI cable), manual, etc. Setup was a snap. It makes even my DVD copies look 200% better, and Blu-Ray...there's a major 'WOW!' factor there too! VERY happy with the purchase, and may end up getting another for the bedroom TV as well.
Summary: I was very pleased w/this Blueray dvd player. I mean really for the price how can you go wrong and knock on wood all is good in these neck of the woodz. I would definately recommend this to any one who's looking to purchasing one at a reasonable price .Also if your like myself and didn't check to see if your TV has a HDMI port , overstock does carry the proper cables to fit your needs.
