Summary: The subject line says it all really. I bought this player for two reasons, playing discs and streaming Netflix. The unit plays discs well and I am quite satisfied -- though, perhaps unsurprisingly, it can be fussy about playing older DVDs -- but the Netflix streaming is very unreliable.
Summary: This player plays well, accesses network, streams fast, enables a few high-demand apps and interfaces with 64gb usb flash drives perfectly. The key reasons to get this player is for the acceptable video formats.
Summary: Bought this blu ray player 2 days ago. Found out 5 min ago ( live chat) that when Blockbuster updated the app this model no longer gets on demand. Can get Netflix, havent tried anything else yet.
Did not work at first... no video... read for fix!

Summary: This player did not work at first and I'm giving it a low score because it caused me three hours of frustration which was unnecessary. I have this player connected via HDMI to my Pioneer AVR (receiver) and then HDMI to my Samsung 46 inch 1080p HDTV. Initial setup for this player was simple.
Meh product. Save your money for something that's better

Summary: Pros : Easy to setup and configure. Lots of features. Wireless runs solid. Cons : Several of those features don't work, like the often mentioned web browser hangs issue. On my system Hulu also hangs and I can't get a wireless keyboard/mouse to function.
Summary: Got this because of wifi which is mainly used for Netflix. Movies stream pretty good, no stopping in between to load up. But the movement actions are quiet jittery enough to give you a headache. The dvd I had earlier of Pioneer (no wifi) was not as jittery as this one.
Summary: Home Connection Specs: 6Mbps Internet; connected player by both Wifi and Ethernet Cable; no other devices powered on during Blu-Ray install and use. Pros: Set-up was easy for both WiFi and Ethernet Cable.
