Excerpt: Replacing my faulty video player seemed a bad reasoning to upgrade to blu-ray playback now that I’m an adult. If the cost of such expense would be waived off courtesy of my parents as a Christmas gift, I would be a hypocrite to turn it down. I …
Summary: This is my first blu ray player and I'm not too impressed. It plays all discs fine, but it doesnt respond to commands in a decent time at all. The remotes' buttons are annoying to push, and will not work unless you are pointing it spot on at the player.
Summary: I could not find both optical audio output and subwoofer output in the newer players but this one has both. It is very-well built and almost too big and heavy for my taste. The disc tray looks heavy-duty and opens/closes very smoothly like the pricey high-end Denon.
Summary: I would have rated 0 stars if it would let me. We have had problesms with this player since the day we opened it. We purchased it at a Black Friday Sale at Best Buy and we had problems that are definitely manufacturer issues.
Summary: This blu-ray player came very well packaged. It took a little longer then I would have expected for it to start working, but once it did it produced a great quality picture. The fan seems to run a bit loud when its left on.
Summary: I had read other reviews about this product and everyone seemed positive. Without the firmware upgrade the unit locked up on the first movie I tried to watch. The upgrade procedure is on the Phillips website, and if you follow it exactly it will work fine.
