  • Summary: I was satisfied with this DVD player until it stopped ejecting the DVD - and it's just out of warranty too! I'm not happy about this purchase now.

like to have given it five stars

  • Summary: what to say about this, customer service was excellent, i returned the first one because it kept freezing and the remote was very unresponsive, it was replaced very quickly and i have had the replacement for a good few weeks now, but i am afraid it is no different, still the same problems, but i decided to live with it, the concept is brilliant, the 3d and blue ray are the best i have had, so i will put up with the problems, i just wish i could have given it five stars.

  • Summary: CON... bought this machine in the hope that it had the same fast forward - rewind - slow feature as earlier models using the centre menu ring (up-down-left-right-enter) but no!! which where more convenient than than the dedicated transport buttons...

BluRay OK. Media Player poor

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to play 3d Bluray and as a media server for my NAS and USB hard Drive.My Samsung TV will only stream 1080 MP4, no use for converted home DVD's at 576, so considered Phillips bluray as I wanted 3d also. Remote control is basic, not even a tv volume control so you have to use two remotes. Remote control android app useless. Plays MP4 from NAS over DLNA but refuses to play the same files on USB. When it cannot play it freezes.

Resume

r.e.harle, Amazon
14 March 2013
  • Summary: After a lot of research and communication with various makers of these devices, i found that this machine had what i considered to be a really important feature that the others don't have. This feature is a resume, which means if you take out the disc and even if you switch it off at the mains socket, when you put the disc back in it will remember where it was stopped and resume from there.

  • Summary: Price & picture quality both splendid. B-ray films different class, plays any format i've tried. No need for a computer in the viewing room now with the on-line facility.
