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...
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. Pretty extensive app base compared even to my LG 3D smart tv or Vizio 3D player. Customer support answered in under 1 minute without endless computer messages during my test call.
Too Expensive. Features barely work. Bad HD Playback

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. The Phillips player is by far the worst experience of all these devices. Each single button press takes 5 - 10 seconds to be reflected on screen, playback looks low quality Youtube compression at best.
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. The second day I attempted to access Netflix the unit was unable to connect although my laptop and iPhone had no problem. Feel sorry for those who paid 180 for this pos.
Let's talk about what this didn't do the night I opened it....

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. * Netflix is the only app worth anything * No YouTube or Crackle availability I really like when I purchase things and think to myself, "How have I gotten this far in line without X?". In this case, it was more headache than solving a need. I'll be taking this back tomorrow morning.
Summary: I bought this at walmart with my Vizio 3d TV and I must say the 2 of them together is a god send! I love love love I can update my facebook status and listen to pandora all on my tv all at the same time!!!all the apps work great! so I put another one in my cart for my big screen in the family room!
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. The instructions tell you to enter a code found on a CD with the player. There is no CD. The set-up menu tells you to go to [...
Summary: I read the reviews on here and thought they are written by bitter people who've been burned by a dysfunctional device. That couldn't possibly happen to me. Well, here's another one of those types of reviews. The wireless worked maybe 50% of the time. I've had it for 1 month and now have completely lost the picture. Sound works great though, so if you like listening to Blu-rays without the distraction of the picture, this player is for you!
