Good, if expensive, player but useless for Internet TV
27 December 2012
Summary: I purchased this Philips Blu-ray Player as a Christmas gift to interface with a Philips 3D TV and also because it offered built-in wifi. Whilst I'm more than happy with the video and audio performance of the player, the Net TV function which should be available via the Internet is lamentable.
Summary: Like many others here I bought this as a result of the Which! Nov 2011 review. As a blue ray player it is excellent and I don't share the gripes others mention in their reviews. It's not particularly noisy and the the remote is ok though not up there with the best.
Summary: Ordered this product because of its inbuilt wifi and so I could watch BBC iPlayer. When I set the machine up everything worked except there was no facility to watch iPlayer (there should have been). I could get access to the internet but couldn't use iPlayer.
Summary: Although the DVD picture was OK, I purchased this DVD player mainly as an easy way of using my TV to display the Internet and stream films. In this regard it was very poor with very limited apps and no Lovefilm streaming.
Summary: The blu ray element of this is nice, but the net connectivity is flaky at best and needs a manual reconnection at every startup. Plus, I ran the firmware upgrade, and lost the iplayer. Returned.
Summary: This product came up during my search for a Blu ray player that had built-in wifi and access to online apps like BBC iPlayer. For around £100 this product seemed like a steal. The Good: - Played Blu ray disks well, with good sound and picture - Played DVDs okay, though I didn't notice much of a...
Summary: Das erste Mal, dass wir von einem Testsieger der Stiftung Warentest enttäuscht waren. Schickes Design, und gut beim Abspielen von DVDs und CDs. Leider ständig Probleme beim Abspielen von Bluerays, die auch nicht durch Software-Updates behoben werden konnten.
Summary: Das Gerät ist ok. Laufgeräusche, Verarbeitung, etc. Das große Problem ist m.E. die fehlende Unterstützung diverser Formate; konkret CODECS(!). Der Player ist ausser Stande Video und Bildaufnahmen meiner Sony DSC Kamera abzuspielen. "Das Format wird nicht unterstützt".
