Ending up in the bin!

Karen MacPherson, Amazon
10 October 2013
  • Summary: Bought this for my boyfriend's Christmas in 2011. Hasn't been used much since then, probably no more than twenty times and now it won't power up from standby. Now out of warranty but we were prepared to pay to have it fixed but Phillips aren't interested.

Unreliable and noisy

Tim, Amazon
19 September 2012
  • Summary: When it works, the experience watching DVDs and viewing BBC iPlayer is great. But that's not very often. The player frequently crashes when accessing menu options; usually holding down the power button for several seconds forces a re-boot, but sometimes even this doesn't work and it needs to be...

Cheap and still not worth it

Alex Preston, Amazon
24 August 2012
  • Summary: Slow to load, the menu has gremlins (hangs and then half loads pages), doesn't recognize USB until device is pulled out and put back in again (every time), won't play certain formats now and doesn't recognise the official firmware to update it (you have to download to USB as it won't do it from...

NOT one to go for!

Mr. M. O'callaghan, Amazon
1 March 2012
  • Summary: On setting this system up it worked fine. BUT, a software update was prompted and carried out. This resulted in the Wi-Fi in-build dongle not working. Went to the Philips site and downloaded the software to manually try to resolve.

Philips BDP5200/05 3D Blu-ray disc and DVD player with USB and WiFi

C. Taggart, Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: Like others I was swayed by the reviews (Which etc.) as I wouldn't have considered buying a Phililps product. I also really wanted the built-in wifi facility to watch YouTube/internet. While it plays discs well and the wifi sometimes works well, I have come to hate this product with a passion.

Noisy is not normal!

MX78, Amazon
15 February 2012
  • Summary: Bought this following a Which? recommendation as a best buy. Looks good, but . . . . there is a discernible whine while playing 2D discs. I tried two different discs and the same thing. It is generally a bit noisy when loading discs, but that doesn't really spoil the drama.

M. Holland "square-eyes", Amazon
2 February 2012
  • Summary: I was looking forward to this Blue Ray player with built in Wifi and access to Internet Gateway services. I was very disappointed. The quality of the build was poor with a very plasticy appearance.

Probleme mit aktuellen 3D-Blu-Rays

Quarter, Amazon
22 May 2013
  • Summary: Der Player hat massive Probleme mit div. aktuellen 3D-Blu-Rays z.B. Der Hobbit, Prometheus, Ice Age 4. Asynchrone Bilder, bei schnellen Bewegungen führt dies zu einem drastischen Unschärfe-Effekte! Ich würde diesen Blu-Ray Player nicht wieder kaufen!!
