Summary: i bought this for its mkv playback, which it does extremely well, either from the usb port or burnt to a disk. ive no idea why the reviewer couldnt play any mkvs but ive watched dozens with no problems whatsoever....
Summary: Considering the price, this machine delivers the essentials, with only a handful of drawbacks. Set up is very easy, especially for disc playback, although no HDMI cable is supplied, which seems a bit mean as they are fairly cheap (on the other hand, this means you can easily get your own).
Summary: I've had the unit about 18 months now and it's just gone belly up. It's obviously not a high end device based on it's pricing and being my first Blu Ray player I don't really have anything to compare it to but it was slow to start up and really noisy.
Excerpt: Into The Blu ========= Since Blu-Ray has become the standard for high definition optical media the prices of the players has been quite rapidly declining. It's now possible to get a decent Blu-Ray player at sub £100 prices.
Summary: got the item as a return/used second hand reduced price,got what i paid for.it clunks and clanks when it loads but it works fine plays all types cd's dvd's are upscaled i'm happy got a reduction on the cost what more can you say. two stars is like five on a second hand return
Summary: Arrived quicker than expected. It is a very easy machine to work. Blu-ray discs are superb, especially the wild life ones. I paid £99.99 and was annoyed when 2 days later it had gone down in price to £79. Just my bad timing I suppose. However, it is a good machine and I can reccommend it..
Summary: Not really used it that much in the 13 months ive had it, watched about a dozen or so movies on it in all that time and now its dead in the water. Burning smell came from it whilst my missus was watching a dvd she had bought and now it wont switch on.
Summary: Great player, excellent picture & sound quality. DVD picture upscaling is amazingly good, and I am rediscovering my old DVD collection. If you just want a good 2D Blue Ray player to replace a DVD player this is perfect.
