Summary: I bought it only because I had an Aquos TV, and I wanted the so much advertised integration between the devices. The only plus I got is that BD player remote does work with the TV too. Player itself is crap... it takes forever to start, twice as long to read the disc, and it is NEVER able to connect to the Internet even though all instructions had been followed and I can see the player getting an IP address from my router.
Summary: The product is mostly a solid purchase: 1. The up-conversion is very good 2. The sound quality is exceptional 3. When a BD plays, it plays really well 4. The most demanding BDs still have software issues; Last of the Mohicans, the extended edition of Avatar, others, still have dropped,garbled frames. 5. Firmware updates are spread too far apart My Vizio (inexpensive) and Samsung (more expensive) BD players don't have the same issues with the same materials.
Summary: I found the firmware upgrade process a little tricky. The player detected my router and I was able to get the RSS newsfeed. It even checked the internet, and said a new firmware version was available. In spite of the player having an obvious internet connection, it said there was a network error when I went to download new firmware.
