WAS great. Now, just for decoration.

  • Summary: It workED great with a Ethernet cable. The WiFi wouldn't connect without the added purchase of another product. I've had no problems with this bluray player, until yesterday. ** The remote got really warm and then quit working. The player is useless without the remote.

Caveat emptor

P. Allen, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had good luck with Philips all-region DVD players in the past, so I thought I'd give this one a try for both DVDs and blu-rays. UPDATE -- After six months (October through March), this thing bit the dust and will not recognize any DVD I insert. It simply comes up "no disc.

  • Summary: where in the name of God do I get the goddamned "dongle" so I can use the damn wifi????? I've would've had better luck tracking down a leprechaun... 4-29-12: After further review, apparently you need a Philips brand dongle, which happens to cost $60.00.

Really not very good

Don R. Hanson II, Amazon

  • Summary: If you must have a multi-zone Blue Ray player, then this one is ok. It does not automatically play all zones, the instructions state you have to press the secret key combo on the remote when turning on the machine to change the zone it works with. It is a very compact player, but cheaply made.

I hate games

  • Summary: Just as the last reviewer said, you need a wifi 'dongle' ($40). I threw the box away, but I had looked at the box before I bought it to see if I needed to buy an HMDI cable (didn't occur to me that I might also need a dongle).

Didn't even make it out of the box

Explorer, Amazon
28 May 2013
  • Summary: I don't usually research products that cost under $90. Products at that price point are practically an impulse buy. "WiFi Ready" is a term that unnecessarily complicates the product and misleads the unwary consumer.
