  • Summary: I have had this player for 3 years... The entire time it has been insanely slow loading, ejecting, powering on/off. I updated to the latest firmware twice now with no luck.

Junk...do not buy

Troublesome Player, Avoid

Aaron, Amazon
16 January 2011
  • Summary: Purchased the Philips BDP5005 slightly over 1 year ago. About a week after the warranty expired, the player ceased functioning. It has the latest firmware upgrades, it rests in a clean, well ventilated, dry location. It is apparently designed to fail.
