  • Cons: Uses 2012 smart TV GUI, No Lovefilm app, Lacks MyHomeScreen, No virtual remote apps, Easy to use it might be, but the language in its otherwise simple, polished (though unusually structured) user interface is sometimes a little odd; should the rather hidden Network Services tab really hide the DMP-BDT230's entire suite of smart TV apps? While we're talking about apps, the DMP-BDT230 doesn't really have enough of the big ones, notably Lovefilm and the catch-up services...
