Wireless card is extremely slow

Jose M. Chaverra "Karkarodon10", Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: It plays movies with extraordinary quality. However, if you have a streaming service, the wireless connection is very slow and the movies will pause and buffer....I did not tried a wire connection yet but I assume that could be faster...

Great Blu-Ray Player

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 March 2012
  • Summary: I have no issues with this Blu-Ray. Everything works so far. Netflix works well. Pandora streams fine. Vudu gives you a 5.99 credit which works. Setup on my network was very easy and no connection problems yet. I have this downstairs and my router is upstairs.

Too Expensive. Features barely work. Bad HD Playback

Garrick Greathouse, Amazon
3 March 2012
  • Summary: Netflix interface is slow, buggy, inconsistent and unresponsive. The Netflix interface is a nightmare to use. My home has an XBox 360, two PC's connected to TV's, a laptop, an Android phone an iPad Touch and this player all setup to stream Netflix.

Skunked again

Average Consumer, Amazon
1 January 2012
  • Summary: First I'd like to note this is my 6th blueray player. Ive yet to find one that works reliably with Netflix. Bought at Walmart for $118. Never even played a blueray with this player. Netflix access is very, very, very slow although setup was pretty simple.

  • Summary: * The disc tray didn't open at all * Media Connect did not work for more than a few seconds * The attempted software update froze at 45% (showing 45/100 on the screen) for more than an hour.

Disappointment

SC Reader, Amazon
12 June 2011
  • Summary: I bought one of these from Wal-Mart because of the ability to access the internet with your PC through the MediaConnect feature but was unable to download the required software from Philips' site or get any tech support who could help or understand what the issue might be with the Philips site.
