Summary: This is my first Blu-ray player that I have ever bought and I think I hit a home run with this one. The player was packaged very well and it had lots of protection. The player does take a little time to load and start playing a movie but I do not care about that I care about quality and this is quality merchandise. I recommend this for anyone who is looking for a great blu-ray player for a great price.
Summary: I bought this over a year ago. It's still working perfectly. As much as we've used it, the only sign of it's mileage is the DVD tray is slow to open/close. Not horribly slow, but not as zippy as when it was new.
It's 2 years old and already useless with any new movies

Summary: After double checking and confirming that I had the latest firmware (v1.013) with Toshiba from their website I tried playing a new blu-ray (tinker tailor soldier spy) and it failed to load the menu and play the movie. Unfortunately, Toshiba's latest firmware for this player, BDX2000KU, is still over a year old (dated Feb 2011).
Summary: I concur with the other reviewers who said that this is an excellent blu ray for the money, very good quality, and the only problem is that the unit responds fairly slowly to command. It loads slowly and you have to hold the keys on the remote down for a while longer than other remotes for the unit to get the signal. But the overall value of this is well worth those issues.
Summary: The one star is not a reflection on the Toshiba BDX2000 Blu-ray disc player which I never got to use since what came in the obviously opened Toshiba box was a standard DVD player of a different manufacturer...not even blu-ray. The Toshiba player was to be new with only 2 remaining in stock. This item was returned to the third party vendor. I have yet to receive a credit for this item from the third party vendor. Beware of third party vendors.
Summary: I did not rate the Reliability as I have had this player a little over a month now. The loading could be a little faster, but this is a quality unit and I'm very happy with it and would recommend this to my friends. This also seems to enhance regular DVD movies also. I think that the load speed , the time it takes the player to load the movie, is rather slow, however I think this is the norm for most Blue-Ray players anyway.
