If you don't need wifi, get this instead of the S5100!

Summary: Update: 26 Apr 2014 Internet content is region aware. Meaning: the player will detect which country you are in and download the appropriate software (video streaming apps) for your region. The content in Singapore is equivalent to NONE. "Wired" was giving me news about 2011's iPhone release.
Excerpt: Plays disks well, but the network side is woefully underpowered. Web browser has horrible keyboard for entering the URL, and it is achingly slow, like going back to dial-up. iPlayer is slow to load as are many of the other network services. Will not check for software updates, times-out.
Excerpt: Wanted a simple DVD player that would also play Blu-ray Discs And that is what you get with this machine, it was very easy to set up and to use. the instructions are clear and the remote seems durable and sturdy.
Excerpt: Player is connected via HDMI to Sony LED TV making is work great. I haven't used all fancy features yet though so can't comment on that (we're just playing DVD's). I have noticed twice that the player wouldn't switch off anymore so I had to remove the powercord from the wallsocket to sort this out...
Excerpt: To be fair after being let down by another major retailer I came across this at Tesco. Perfect service ordered from another store and within 24hrs I had the item £30 cheaper than the previous retailer (not Tesco) that let me down. It's a rare 10/10 perfect service! Seriously impressed
Summary: I was always a bit dubious about getting 'blu-ray' but now I have I would never go back. This is so much more than a disc player. It is also an internet service player, I use it for Netflix, Amazon LoveFilm, YouTube and to browse the Internet (although this can be slow).
Summary: Advitised as new but by the state of the box, scratches on the DVD player, and the remote control batteries missing it must have been second hand. You can purchase this model second hand from Amazon for a lot less than I paid, and it would have been in better condition than this (NEW ONE)!
