Summary: I bought this for my rental property, in particular to use with Netflix. However, the wifi won't work, so it's useless. Toshiba user groups are all complaining about this model also. They say it's not even worth trying to return to Toshiba since they only give you credit to buy another one and it's not even enough money to buy a new one without using more of your money. I've wasted hours trying to fix. Get something else.
Summary: Purchased for the basement TV from Best Buy for $45. Marked down from $99. Where to start. Plays blu rays. Seems to start with sub titles, no matter how I set it up the last time. Would not allow me to shut off sub titles while playing a dvd. Plays Netflix, after giving me the no network error at least 3 times before connecting. Very slow response, if any at all from any input from the remote. Constantly freezes up and needs to be unplugged.
Summary: 1. Works fine for about a month 2. Locks up daily, so you can't even turn it off with the power button, must unplug it 3. Says network "connected", when it's not 4. It can see your network but when you try to connect it just says "connection failed" This thing is buggy software on top of flaky hardware. The fact that it remains on the market with these known issues speaks to the character of the company.
3rd Toshiba Blu-Ray/DVD Player in 6 months! Beware!

Summary: Yes, that is right. I am in need of my third Toshiba Blu-Ray/DVD player in six months. Please take my review very seriously. Within the first two months of use, our Blu-Ray/DVD player started skipping, shutting off and not responding to commands. I contacted Toshiba, and was relieved to learn that they replace all defective electronics through their Acclaims Department and a website called Toshiba Direct. What a joke!
Summary: Bought this player from Walmart 6 months ago. Easy to connect, had to upgrade the firmware immediately, then had issues with the unit not shutting off. Unplugging was the only way to shut it off. That problem mysteriously cleared up. Yesterday I went to turn it on to watch a DVD and it wouldn't sync to the TV; gave only a blank screen. Tried changing HDMI cables, nothing helped.
Summary: I bought the Toshiba BDK33 from Walmart for 78.00. Hooked it up to my tv and turned it on. The Toshiba logo came on screen for a couple seconds and then disappeared as the disc was spinning-up and that is the extent of what it does. Title says it all, simply did not work brand-new right out of the box. I couldn't get a menu or display of any kind to come up on the screen - just blank / black screen.
Summary: had this product for a few months worked fine besides turning off every half an hour while watching a dvd then wi fi stopped working w/ a network fail message every time a tried to reset it-after spending hours on the phone w Toshiba cust. service finds out they said tough s*** your loss-our families recommendation is to never buy a blu ray player from these guys-complete garbage!!!!!!
Summary: wifi on this worked for about 2 days now won't. My Wii, 2 tablets, and laptop connect fine through wifi for some reason this keeps giving me "connection fail' every time i try. also, no RCA style connections for audio for surround sound. when i connect it to the surround sound with HDMI it distorts the picture (blu ray to surround sound, surround sound to tv).
