Good, if expensive, player but useless for Internet TV

Schtum, Amazon
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. Having upgraded the software in the player, there is now very little in the way of Net TV availability.

Good Player but Poor Wifi

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 June 2012
  • 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. OS updates are simple once connected and USB for photos is easy. I connect my camera or phone direct and can move through their menus with the Philips remote zooming and rotating with ease. But...

Not what it says on the box

G. Davies, Amazon
21 March 2012
  • 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. Contacted Philips Support, they stated that the product was faulty. I returned item to Amazon who quickly sent out a new one. But that one behaved in exactly the same manner i.e.

Poor apps, exchanged for Sony

GTM, Amazon

  • 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. I wrote an email to Philips regarding this limitation and received a bland reply saying that they had no immediate plans to increase the number of apps or stream Lovefilms.

Not bad, but..

  • 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.

Great Specification, Poor Reliability

Farrow, Amazon
26 January 2012
  • 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 difference due to upscaling - Played just about every video file I threw at it (xvid & divx .avi as well as .mkv) on an NTFS USB drive (unlike Panasonics which can't read NTFS).

not what it says on the tin

Events Team "- Events Manager", Amazon
25 January 2012
  • Summary: Hi, I purchased this as we wanted an option to play BBC I player and ITV and 4 on demand - The reveiws for this dvd were great, so I was delighted to order it and very excited to recieve it. But this player does not allow you to play ITV player or 4onDemand, as it does not have a flash player installed, when we called the manufacturer -Phillips, we have been given a curt reply, saying it is not a computer you know!

Probleme mit Bluerays

T. Besselmann, Amazon
11 January 2015
  • 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. Tonaussetzer und Pausieren mitten im Film, die ein Neustarten des Gerätes erforderten. Zudem sehr langsames Reagieren auf Tasten, als ob ein Prozessor überlastet ist. Schade!

Problem mit 'standard' Formaten

clahmann, Amazon
22 December 2012
  • 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". Nach Rückfrage beim Support wird klar das es die besagten Standard-Formate unterstützt (bspw. AVI, MPG, DIVX, JPG, etc.) ABER! Es gibt hier einen 'Blumenstrauß' an weiteren Codecs. Das war für mich neu.
