Summary: Cannot believe that this unit does not play netflix. Only some crappy seemingly trial version. You can only veiw movies in your instant que. If this is your primary source for watching Netflix, youre pretty much screwed. At my house I bought a CHEAPER unit that had full netflix capability. I get this unit for my parents so I can show them netflix and am utterly disappointed. What a waste. Should have just bought them an Xbox or Wii. There goes 130 bucks....
Works good but Wi Fi is inconsistent and unreliable

Summary: Works good but Wi Fi is inconsistent and unreliable. WiFi will really bother you. works one minute but not the next. Really frustrating givin the fact that it connected previously but not now. All settings are perfect and I'm a network specialist. If looking for a wireless connection; please pass on this one...
Summary: *today is 11/4/2011 and i did the latest firmware last night* i just received this blu-ray player last night and it is just 'ok'. i like that it has Vudu on it, but Netflix only plays movies that you have added to your instant que which is not what i expected and not realistic. the wireless works fine once connected, but doesnt seem to connect by default. so anytime that i want to use net tv, i have to connect my player to my wireless network.
Summary: Given the previous review I had read here on Amazon, I wanted to make a post to indicate that my experience was not the same as that of the other reviewer. Finding the network was quick and easy, the software update downloaded in a minute or two, it installed in five minutes or less, and I was off to investigate the app options available from VUDU! So, I just wanted to let potential purchasers know that, "your mileage may vary.
Summary: This review addresses only the wi-fi & netflix functionality of this player. I think that's fair since you shouldn't be considering it unless you are specifically interested in those features. If you aren't, there's a wide variety of capable, non-networked blu-ray players that are much less expensive. First off, the wireless card in this player didn't impress me.
