great product for the price

nezy4life, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this player in 2009 and overall I am satisfied. I spent less than $100 on this which was a steal back then. Here are the positives: (1) The picture is great. Even regular DVDs played on my blueray look better than they do on a DVD player. (2) Easy to use (3) If you stop a disc and turn off the player, when you turn it back on, you get the option to start where you left off or from the beginning (4) This player even plays burnt CDs (not sure about burnt DVDs)...

Lasted 18 months

  • Summary: This BD player started going bad at 18 months. Since it was beyond the 1-yr warranty, Philips wouldn't do anything about it. First it was the drawer--it starts to open, then says "Blocked", then closes. You have to press the eject button about 10 times to get it opened or closed. Then, I started having a problem with the sound on certain BD discs--sound was fine during previews, but no sound once the movie started.

  • Summary: My first blu ray player and already I see how much of a rip off it is. The message says either disc error- playback may not be available on this disc, or unsupported disc even though it played before. Avoid this product!!!!

  • Summary: I bought this Blu-Ray player used. It came in excellent condition and works perfectly. So far, its played every Blu-Ray and DVD just fine. Picture and sound is great compared to a regular DVD player. I have no complaints thus far, and would recommend it.

  • Summary: I don't know how much more they can improve the quality of videos and players, but so far I love blu-ray! Never thought I could tell the difference, but WOW!!! Totally worth it, especially if you have an HDTV, precision is at it's highest quality along w/this blu-ray player. Awesome. I love it!

Enjoying the blu-ray

  • Summary: To someone who wrote that the loading is slow, that's typical for blu ray players. I just bought the player, and so far so good! I am happy that it can play divx movies since I have a bunch of it, and glad it's not going to waste. HDMI is awesome to use, less components, audio and video is amazing! I highly recommend using it, So clear and sound is awesome. Even a regular dvd movie the picture is great.

Great for the price

  • Summary: I've had this Blu-Ray player for a few months now, and have had no problems. Picture is great, menus are logical, start-up is reasonable. My only complaint is that the power button lights up when the power is OFF. Who thought that was a good idea....?
