Be Careful Purchasing this player...No True HD 7.1 capability, only 5.1

MC "MC", Amazon
22 July 2014
  • Summary: Be very careful...this unit does not support DTS 7.1 audio..it converts the 7.1 stream to 5.1. Nothing above says this,.. didn't see it until I started to search why none of my 7.1 movies weren't in 7.1...found the answer on page 41 of the owner's manual.

No WiFi

John, Amazon
10 June 2014
  • Summary: Rarely do I review products, but I must say this unit was a huge disappointment. Purchased because it is one of the few that has Amazon Prime Video and MLB.TV that is reasonably priced. After initial set up, everything worked great.

returned it after not playing blu rays

Myfender, Amazon
5 April 2014
  • Summary: worked fine for streaming, got it hooked up to all the streaming sites (hulu, amazon, redbox, Netflix) but it would freeze playing blu ray disks, brand new disks no scratches, the audio would continue but you would loose picture. I tried 3 different high quality video cables and had same result.

Broken after 1 month

Guapo "Guapo", Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Update to the original review below: I replaced this with a cheap Samsung for about 80 dollars. I like the Samsung a lot better. It's faster and doesn't automatically power off, so I can just start watching without waiting for the player to slowly start.

What a waste of time

Nasty Italian, Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: This model has the worst GUI I have ever seen, its design is non-intuitive, the apps are scarce, and they have the nerve to display sponsored advertising. There is an option to opt-out of the banner ads, but the opt-out option for the Home Page ads is grayed out.
