Works great

Anonymous, Newegg
23 March 2011
  • Summary: It does not have wireless but I ran a wired connection to it and it immediately saw the network, downloaded, etc.
  • Pros: Looked like new, all parts in box. Connected easily, came right up. Quick to load and start - didn't feel slow compared to my normal DVD player. Found and downloaded firmware update with no problem. Activated Netflix fine, saw my queue immediately.
  • Cons: Regular DVDs really don't look any better than on my old DVD player. If anything, the 1080p upconvert seems to add a little noise. But oh well. Haven't watched a Blu-Ray yet.

BUY IT NOW!

Jerris N., Newegg
18 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this more for Netflix and YouTube than I did Blue-ray. This was an AWESOME deal. I paid $59 after adding a Newegg $25 coupon code to my cart. On top of that, I got the The Fighter Blue-ray DVD for Free. This was a GREAT deal. I expected refurbished, possibly scratched or dented.
  • Pros: Internet features are: A.m.a.z.o.n, Netflix, YouTube, Weather, Bloomberg, Picasa, Twitter, several others AFTER firmware update.
  • Cons: Interface seems a little slow, but I still wouldn't consider it a con. The YouTube interface could be done more like a Sony where the searches are saved, but still not complaining.

Had to manually update the Firmware

Kim Y., Newegg
10 March 2011
  • Summary: Although it correctly detected my hardwired network settings, it was unable to connect to the internet to update the FW (1.23 installed) ... Viera Cast gave me the same error message, "Cannot connect. Please confirm network connection and settings.
  • Pros: Great price, looks like new and came with a decent-looking HDMI cable.
  • Cons: None so far.
