Summary: Two stars for being improperly refurbished. I ordered three and two out three came without being reset to new out of the box. They would turn on and play discs but that was it. I could not access the settings menu of the player at all. I had to do a hard reset which is what they should have done at the factory. Turn the player on and firmly hold down the stop button on the player for 20 seconds then restart and setup.
Summary: Finally tried it the last few days of the first month I had it, and it stuttered on playback skipping some scenes and continuing. One or two second stutter. Then I tried a different new blue ray the next day and it froze again and started but didn't lose any sceneage. I called the next day and returned it. The picture was good and playback was quick, but not sure about the freeze stopping for a second or two here and there.
Summary: I think it was a bit deceiving because it didnt say it wasnt built with wifi and in order to use the extra features such as YouTube Pandora or Netflix u have to have a internet modem and the modem has to be near the bluray. You have to buy an extra modem if u already jave a modem for ur computer and there not near one another.
Unit works, but it does not play Blu-Ray disks that are from regions outside the USA.

Summary: I believe the description to be misleading; the unit does not play Blu-Ray disks from outside the USA. I spoke with customer support, and they sent me a new player, which also does not play Blu- Ray disks from outside the USA. For the curious: yes, the Blu-Ray disks do play fine in other players.
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: When I originally hooked it to my TV -- a Sony Bravia -- the unit performed as advertised. It detected the TV automatically, video was sharp and clear and the response to remote commands was quick. After hooking it to my network the unit downloaded a software update and added a lot of remote service such as Amazon Video and Netflix to the home screen options. Now the response to the remote commands is sluggish -- usually needing five to six seconds between key presses.
