Summary: Yes it is WiFi ready. Unfortunately many people are confused and they think Philips tricked them. This is why it still pays to go to places that have salesmen that know their stuff. I have seen every major retailer use this term in reference to their models that are ready to receive WiFi but do not have it built into the unit. This includes televisions. This has become the accepted term albeit confusing to most.
Summary: I tried to find the most basic stripped down version of a Blu-ray player. This is as close as I think I could get. I don't care about the bells and whistles of the newest Blu-ray player, and why would my video player need Wi-Fi, I ask? I just wanted a device that plays Blu-ray discs, that's all, so this does just fine.
Summary: I won this piece of junk in a sweepstakes. I would have never bought anything from Philips (except Norelco razors and Sonicare toothbrushes) based on previous purchases. I have had the following problems with it: 1. It stops responding, and I have to unplug it and plug it back in to get it to work, and as at least one of the other reviewers said, the cord is permanently attached, making this difficult. 2.

Summary: If I had a second chance if wouldn't buy this one. I always have to unplug it becuz it locks up. It holds me hostage just to change a disc, and it SLOW. If I try to search it takes forever when I enter a letter, then it takes forever to begin to display results.
Summary: OK as a DVD player but awful for watching Netflix. Freezes very often or once you try to pause streaming or rewind or fast forward from that point on the movie is jerky or broken up. Very often need to reboot or exit Netflix and start again. Not a happy camper here.
Summary: A great buy from Amazon. I use it only for DVD playback for HD and 3D disks and it performs flawlessly in that capacity. Can't vouch for the streaming feature as I use a Smart 3D TV and Roku 3 box for streaming content.
Summary: We had been shopping for a blu-ray player for my nephew who moved in with us. We didn't want to pay a lot and found this model for much more in stores. It works well, has all the right features, and isn't big or bulky, which is important since we already have so many other electronics taking up space.
