Summary: Easy set up and performance. It had a problem that the audio would distort when changing chapters, when viewing a dvd. Decided to send it back, which they promptly refunded our money, and go with a different model.
Summary: My husband and I recently purchased this item and so far so good we haven't had any issues just yet. Is was very easy to setup and configure to internet. We really enjoy the streaming video feature that it has. Plays both regular DVD's and blueray...like I said so far so good not issues so far and we hope it stays this way.
Pros: A $40 blu-ray player that works much better than my old $175 blu-ray player. Has played every disc I've given it with no problems.
Cons: It's worth noting that this player cannot connect to wi-fi, it only offers a wired Internet connection. And the hookups are pretty bare-bones, HDMI and coaxial audio only. As long as you're OK with this, it works just fine.
Summary: Despite the user manual, this things is easy to use and fairly idiot proof. Idiot tested. Plug and play, that simple (I have an ethernet and not WiFi). The blu ray player is easy to use and straight forward as well as all the applicable programs that are set in the interface. It's small and gets the job done. Happy viewing.
