Summary: It has no player control on the player, the remote must be used to play, pause, ect. Also it is not 110v. It uses a power converter to reduce to 12 volt. Loses connection to the network very often. I would not buy this one again.
Summary: I just got my blu ray player today and it came with no instructions/manual and only had one cord to plug in. Nothing to connect to my TV. I have never had issues with refurbished products in the past so I didn't think this would be a problem. I hope Walmart contacts me back to inform me they will send me these cords and instructions otherwise I will be returning it.
Summary: I don't typically review products but this BD player deserves it. I would have given 3 stars except for the fact that the first player had to be returned because it kept locking up and required removing power to get it working again. Wouldn't last a day with out removing power and I had to reenter Pandora and Amazon Prime info every time. For the replacement unit that Amazon sent, the Quick Power feature causes the unit to lock up and require removing power to unlock it.
Summary: Can't submit much of a review, since the machine only worked twice. But the setup was straight-forward (it connected easily to my wi-fi). The two blue-ray DVDs I was able to play looked and sounded great. I will avoid buying refurbished items in the future; they aren't reliable.
Poor performer with glitches - the reviews are correct!

Summary: I should have paid attention to the Amazon reviews. I was fooled by reviews on other sites (e.g. Sony's own site). I bought this DVD player locally for almost the same price as Amazon. For the record, the first thing I did was update the firmware and all of these issues occurred after the latest firmware was installed. *There was an audible "pop" when I started a Bluray movie. It didn't occur every time but more than half of the time.
Summary: I took a chance buying this refurbished and I am very disappointed. It was very easy to set up and it looked nice. We turned it on and there was a line that went across the screen. We thought maybe it was the new HDMI cord that we bought so we bought a new one but it still had the line. We will be returning this Blu-ray.
Summary: Nice blu ray player if your only intent is to view blu rays. Netflix even works pretty well on this unit, as user friendly as a simple remote can be with Netflix. Typing in account info is time consuming, so is searching on Netflix. But the real issue - Hulu Plus is a nightmare. Every show we tried to view had some sort of issue during playback.
