"Lousy WI-FI Connectivity and WORST customer service"
20 April 2012
Pros: Nice user interface
Cons: Frequent skips or stops during playback of BluRay discs. Despite 2 firmware updates, the WiFi could not connect to a powerful signal. Countless calls to tech support & customer service resulted in me throwing the unit into the street to be run over,
"If you really want to stream from Netflix then move on."
28 March 2012
Pros: Decent image quality with discs, and with streaming when it's not flashing black.
Cons: Still can't stream Netflix as of February 2012 even with the latest firmware download. Lay out of remote is not very functional as it is far to easy to hit a button that shuts down streaming when you meant to use the toggle.
Cons: Has black flickers when playing Netflix. Usually two in a row. I've got a top notch Linksys E4200 and have verified on the bluray player that it's receiving a N wifi signal, with all bars. Also, the handsfree opener is annoying. Disappointing
Summary: Without a doubt this is an excellent Blu-ray player overall, but I have found some things not to my liking. I bought it to replace an old Insignia with integrated Wi-Fi that has been slowly degrading these last few months. Out of the box, the DMP-BDT210 is a sharp-looking little unit. It has the same width as typical home theater components but is only about 7 inches deep.
Summary: I have had no real issues with this player. It performs as advertised. I have had none of the Netflix issues that some reviewers here have commented about. The only thing I wish it did is to be compatible with more file formats. I like to stream content from my PC and many of the file formats I have simply will not play on this player. Not a huge issue that would cause me to not recommend this player as my trusty PS3 fat takes care of those other issues.
Pros: Fast loading, great image quality, excellent sound.
Cons: The compatibility list for file playback is dreadfully limited.
