Summary: This player is very sleek and stylish. The performance quality is lacking. It performed well right out of the box and the wifi setup was easy to complete. The performance did not last very long. After a couple of weeks of sporadic use (normal usage) the picture quality video and audio playback became erratic. This resulted in stopping and starting movies frequently. Same issues with the wifi connection. After a month I could no longer connect to my home wifi network.
Summary: I purchased 2 of these Toshiba bluray players from Groupon back in mid October to give as Christmas presents. First problem...can only be returned within 30 days of purchase date (by Christmas, I was stuck with these flaming balls of pooh). While this is not Toshiba's fault, building a poor product is. Second problem...they don't tell you that you need an additional adapter to get the wifi to work (adapater costs as much as the player).
Summary: We owned this DVD player for 18 months. 6 of those months it was in storage while we traveled. Needless to say it turns itself on and off at whim now. From what I've read online that's a common problem and there is no fix. Our last DVD player lasted us 5 years and was similarly priced. Poor product.
Warning!!! WiFi-Ready needs an adaptor that costs $60

Summary: This product does not have WiFi without a Toshiba WiFi adapter. It only works with 2 models of Toshiba WiFi adapters that cost around $60. Also, when hooked to an HDTV, it turns on and off automatically when to select /de-select device from the TV input menu. Also, constantly needs to be reset by unplugging power. Sometimes remote stops working or screen goes blank. Unplug and unit resets.
Summary: The remote didn't work, however the seller worked out the deal easily. It sometimes takes awhile for the disk to eject. The quality is the same as any other blue ray player out there. It is a good buy.
Summary: I picked up a Toshiba BDX2200 refurb for the bedroom at a ridiculously cheap price because it had no remote (I use it with a Harmony remote). My expectations were low, but I actually quite like it. True, it's cheaply made, but mine works, and the build quality doesn't seem to be any worse than my Samsung Blu-Ray player.
Pros: Netflix, Youtube, plays video files from USB or SD card
Cons: Cheaply made, outdated internet options, no local network streaming
Summary: This Toshiba model may be cheaply made, but to put things in perspective I have several other budget Blu-Ray players of different brands, and I don't think this one is any worse. They're all fairly cheaply made, and a couple of the other brands have failed, one within the first hour of use. So far this Toshiba one continues to work. Blu-Ray discs take quite a long time to load. But they play just fine once they get going, and all the Blu-Ray features are supported.
Summary: Very disappointed from the get-go. Requires a separate $30 Wi-Fi adapter. And then had a terrible time trying to find the Wi-Fi network even though the Apple TV box right next to it works fine 100% of the time. As other reviewers noted, reaction to the buttons/controls is VERY slow (although I've seen other Blu-Ray players operate/load very slowly too). And then to top it off, the picture just went dead for no reason. Sound works fine. Just no pic.
Summary: My daughter purchased this player for me for X-mas.I really dont care about bluray, high def or anything like that. I just wanted this for streaming Youtube Netflix.First of all I got over the fact that you have to buy a wifi adapter that costs as much as the player so I just hard wired mine in. After a week of having this I noticed on a few occasions that The Netflix movies were interupted by the Bluray player by pausing starting, pausing starting.
