Does not handle scratched discs well.

Jim, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: The good: Streaming Netflix works well for me. I like the menu interface. The picture and sound is great for brand new/flawless blu-ray discs. I use both outs for awesome sound and a stunning picture. Noise from the player isn't noticeable.

Not Powerful Enough For 3D

M. Rodriguez, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this player. I've been using a low-end Sony 3D player for a while and it's been very frustrating at the slowness of loading and slow-responding controls. When I got this one home I was initially impressed, but that vanished as soon as popped in the Avatar 3D disk.

no subtitles!!

  • Summary: I feel 'ripped-off' because the device won't play subtitles (.srt) off usb. Those around me, and I, require subtitles because we can't follow the english language fast enough.. I paid plenty for this in local currency (Croatian Kuna), so this is very disappointing.

Worthless remote control

Jeff, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: The unit itself is great, but the remote control is an absolute piece of junk. it has a touch pad instead of the standard up, down, right, left, enter buttons. It is virtually impossible to navigate thru any function that requires the use of these buttons and heaven help you if you have big fingers.

Fine as a BDP; not so good for 2ch music or networking

Andrew Fischer, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this player with the intention of using it as a streaming music player for high res FLAC's as well as MP3's from my NAS, and optical media (CD/CD-R/DVD-R, etc.). My hope was that the analog output of this device would surpass the performance of an aging MSB DAC connected to my NAD stereo...

Good with Discs, Bad with Internet

TexInFla, Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: Reading the reviews of this Blu-Ray player from a variety of websites, I thought this was the best possible Blu-Ray player to purchase. Playing Blu-Ray discs was very good...great color and detail, and good audio. The internet connection, however, was horrible.

The remote control is the worst ever seen The menu interface is simply diabolical

Diego Demaya, Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: Dashed hopes neither of two exchanged units played flac audio files. The remote control is the worst ever seen The menu interface is simply diabolical. Whatever happened to simplicity of use and keeping the user in mind?

Bdt 500P blu ray player

Bruce, Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: Unit is real buggy. When I turn it on it will say sleep timer has been activated or sound clarity has been turned on. It is awful for apps, slow as dirt, I mean real, real slow. Buttons are slow to respond and so is content loading. I would say a full Minute to get into Netflix after you select it.

Flickering Display

Wrath, Amazon
22 October 2012
  • Summary: Returned after using for just 3 days. The player seemed to perform well enough. However, when the HDMI cable for the TV was plugged into the output port on the player, you the display would continuously flicker as if there was a short. It did not affect the quality of the picture or any play back.
