Summary: Horrible machine. DVD and blu-ray disc would skip and/or freeze. Recently it stopped reading Blu-ray discs. Nothing seems to work, even after updating the firmware. I am sick of it. Would not recomend this machine.
Summary: Consistently having problems with this product. Have owned it for almost 3 years. It plays some Blu-ray disks and hangs on others to a point where you can't watch them anymore. I cleaned the disks and everything and still nothing ... Bought new player and disks played fine in the new one.
Summary: I already had one of these models. It gave me problems with "The life of PI" 3 D. I looked for any firmware releases for this product and there was a new version released March of 2013. This really cleared up the playing problem and made the whole (boot/playing) time quicker. Definitely a good bargain today.
Excerpt: I had a sony Blu Ray player before but when we got our new Samsung TV we got this Blu Ray to match with it. And man did I miss my sony. There are not so many apps in it but there are but when you match it with sony this one would not be what it should be. Though I love Pandora and also the HULU and a lot of other apps. Sony had some free cool Doctor Oz Apps and some Yoga app which I miss a lot. Overall this player would function well.
Summary: Had this unit for over a year with minimal problems until now. The unit now has to be reset several times a day. the Netflix freezes and takes several minute for everything to reboot. Not made to last very long.
