Blue Ray Lives up to its image

Kevan, Amazon
12 March 2012
  • Summary: This is my first Blue Ray experience so I wasnt sure what to expect. I have read reviews of many players all with varying impressions. This player is very good value, with built in Wireless so no usb dongles required.

Mostly excellent

Jon, Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: Overall I'm happy with this player. For the money, it had by far the most features I've been able to find. The one I got was marked as "Used - Very Good" and re-packaged by Amazon Warehouse Deals but it seemed to be a new player, and cost a lot less than the £150 list price.

  • Summary: Excellent picture and sound, which is the main thing surely?! Only issue is the web tv interface which could be a little easier to use. In terms of value for money, superb.

Poor wireless wifi

  • Summary: My daughter loves this, lovely picture, easy to use and great for using iplayer etc. However I have had to buy a wifi booster to enable it to pick up our wifi (my son's room is next to my daughter's and his Xbox picks up the wifi no problem).

iPlayer grumble

Unhealthy Radio 4 habit, Amazon
9 February 2012
  • Summary: Stop watching iPlayer on your PC. That was the selling point for me. No need to bother with cables to connect to your router - just plug in and go. It's pretty much delivered, but there's one niggle which I would LOVE to see fixed.

A few teething problems, but generally very good.

Mr. P. Barkley, Amazon
9 February 2012
  • Summary: I was not initially impressed by this player, due to connectivity issues. With many other reviews detailing similar problems I considered returning it, but thankfully, a bit of perseverance paid off. Out of the box, the unit arrived with firmware v1.16.
