Summary: Works fine but even when using an ethernet cable Netflix still runs slow. So I really don't use Netflix as I thought I would. But this was purchased for a kids room so it will be used mostly for DVDs. Still a good item for the price paid. When It mentioned WIFI I didn't know I would have to buy a WIFI adapter or have an ethernet cable. So I couldn't hook it up until the next day after I brought the cable.
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." I bought a second one of these units from Amazon on February 8, 2014. This week (early April), it did the same thing -- "no disc" and it won't load any DVD.
Summary: I have multiple multi-region DVD's and so far everyone that I tried has worked. Also, my US Blue-rays worked perfectly. In addition, I was able to connect the player via wired connection to Netflix and it worked great. I was impressed with the support from the seller. I emailed the seller with questions around the connection to the internet and possible affects on the firmware, the seller replied within 2 hours providing clarification.
Summary: I was going to hold out as long as possible before purchasing a Blu-ray player, but I received the PHILIPS BDP2900 BLU-RAY PLAYER as a Christmas gift. I've used Blu-ray before and have watched movies on them at the homes of friends. Therefore, I wasn't completely naive about the quality or how they work. The machine has worked great and I haven't had any issues with it (it has never frozen up, never skipped a scene, etc.). The picture and audio quality are both great.
Summary: I saw this one at Walmart for about $60.00. Even though I purchased it because it was a BluRay player, I also purchased it because of the wireless connection to the internet/netflix. The Bluray portion of it is fantastic! I was really disappointed in the fact that Walmart didn't carry the usb dongle for it, but I believe that's not Walmart's fault...rather it's Philip's fauly for not providing Walmart the opportunity to carry the usb dongle as a merchandize.
