Summary: Let's see.... today is Jan 18, 2013... Meaning that this BluRay player is well beyond it's retirement age. While searching for a cheap, basic bluray player, I found this one for $8 in Goodwill today. It even had the original remote! Turned it on, and the Firmware was 3.8.

Summary: IT'S A LITTLE SLOW STARTING UP BUT ONCE IT GET GOING IT HAS A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE AND THE SOUND IS RIGHT ON TIME ONLY THING THAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PLAYER IS THAT IT'S NOT INTERNET CONNECTED MEANING THAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE BY DOWNLOAD ONTO A DVD OR CD DISC BUT OTHER THEN THAT YOU...
"cannot play" "loading..." "loading..." "error..." this will be you.

Summary: I bought this several years ago when the HD/Blue Ray wars ended. I purchased several Blue Ray discs and was content with the initial viewing. Although it was unconscionably slow in loading - or even opening the DVD tray - the viewing was crisp, clear and very exciting to watch.
Summary: This was my first purchase of a Blu Ray disc player, and I'm very pleased with it. It is beautiful and easy to use, and the quallity of the picture is phenomenal.
