Summary: Works very well for playing dvd's and was easy to install. However, I believe that I would not have purchased it if I had known that the only way to hook to the internet was by using a Dongle that was ONLY available from Philips, and no where else (very expensive).
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: 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.
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.
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!
Summary: Apart from the Blu Ray option, good upscaling and also easy to play HD material that's in mkv or mp4 format from USB connected accessories. (Drives, memory sticks etc). Very occasionally (once every few weeks) freezes/crashes when left too long on a menu screen, but turning on and off at wall fixes...
Summary: Der Philips Player wurde ruck-zuck geliefert. Zunächst war ich stutzig ob des UK-Steckers, aber ein Adapter lag bei. Ein HDMI Kabel muss man sich separat kaufen, war aber auch so beschrieben. Ich bin kein Videofreak, aber die Bildqualität ist sicher besser als die des Computerlaufwerks mit PowerDVD.
