Extremely slow and not dependable

David L. Weide "Dave", Amazon
12 March 2014
  • 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. The player looks nice, so if you want a nice looking player, get it--but if you care about performance and responsiveness, do not get this one! It is so bad, Philips has lost my business forever...this pretty player and remote goes in the trash tomorrow. My Sony PS3 will be my player again...

Glad I Purchased

  • Summary: This refurbished Blu-ray player has worked perfectly for me. It's not flashy, doesn't have a gooey interface, and doesn't look like much, but it's perfectly functioning, and it was cheap, so I can't ask for any more.

Junk...do not buy

Bryan Fuhs "losfuhs", Amazon
8 August 2011
  • Summary: We have had this blu-ray player for just over a year. As a previous review states, it skips on regular DVDs. Also, blu-rays load horribly slow. Even with firmware updates, the skipping problem never went away. Also, most recently the tray to load the discs has stopped functioning correctly and gives a "blocked" error message. It is past the warranty so, guess this player is going to the trash.

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. Have not been able to identify any parts that are broken, or any bad connections anywhere inside the device. It appears to function correctly until about 45 minutes to an hour into a movie.

  • Summary: I bought this blu-ray player earlier in the day. Set up was a breeze, seems to be working great so far. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a simple blu-ray player.
