Summary: I purchased this as a family Christmas gift and until last week was satisfied. That was before the latest firmware download crashed the unit. My advice to anyone seeking BluRay: Be prepared to deal with firmware!
Summary: I bought this player expecting a great quality HD experience, good upscaling of standard def DVD's, and the ability to stream Netflix movies without technical glitches.

Pros: High quailty upscaling on DVD ` s, can be got quite cheap
Summary: Ich besitze den Bd 2500 nun schon ein 3/4 Jahr. Die neuste Firmeware ist auf den Player und er enttäuscht mich immer noch. Ich habe mir diesen Player, nur als ersatz von den HDX1 von Toshiba angeschafft, wegen den internen REON Chip.
