Summary: I purchased this unit new and have had nothing but problems with it. What kinds of problems, you ask?....what hasn't gone wrong with this unit. The remote doesn't work very well and is not responsive. The DVD player locks up and nothing will work short of simply unplugging it and plugging it back in. When connecting to NetFlix, it often will freeze up and you have to back out of the application completely and go back into it.
Summary: Product was non working upon arrival.. Manufacture wanted it shipped back to them at my expense. An inconvenience all around. For this reason I will never buy electronics through Amazon. I'll stick to the more reliable retailers. Don.
Summary: have only used this unit 3 times. got struck in step twice and had to unplug it so it could gather its mind. while stuck it would not respond to any prompt from the remote. after plugging back in the unit worked ok. now today 5/20/2013 I tried the steps to obtain answers form the help line for toshbia. NO HELP. then I got no line to file a claim for replacement but there again none available but a gift card for the amount I paid good only at toshbia direct.com.
Awful product. Do Not Buy under any circumstance!!!!

Summary: Terrible. I purchased to work in office via Wi-Fi. Go to set up and it keeps saying network fail. Tried every possible combo, ad hoc, static/dynamic/ manual auto, upgraded firmware to 1.18. Nothing! Cat 5 even refuses to work. I want my money back please!
Summary: I drove down to the place of purchase and told them that i would like a refund so that i could replace this player with a better one. The store representative was very nice and said "sure, let me take care of that for you!". A few minutes later he came back and told me that they are unable to return the player because it was purchased more than 30 days ago.
Pros: It was easy to setup and had a nice selection of apps but...
Cons: This blu-ray player was a Christmas gift from my Grandma. I set it up on Christmas day and immediately noticed how sluggish it is. After connecting it to my wireless internet and upgrading the firmware. Later that day i decided to watch a movie on netflix. After logging in i watched a few tv show episodes when the blu-ray player suddenly froze. I tried shutting it down with the remote and the button on the player itself but nothing seemed to work so i unplugged it fro...
Summary: Purchased locally as a cost-effective option for streaming video in addition to Blu-Ray functionality. Set-up was not particularly intuitive, but went smoothly, network connected via WiFi on first attempt. Fast-forward 10 days and several on-screen messages about "network issue" with no explanation (all other devices in house working fine with the network/internet connection including AppleTV in other room). Today - cannot connect at all. "network fail".
Summary: I bought this DVD player at the end of the summer. I was very excited to start using this DVD player since it had all of the features I was looking for at a reasonable price. Initially I had no issues with the player. Unfortunately, within just a few weeks, I was unable to watch DVDs or stream Netflix & YouTube. "Detecting Signal" kept flashing on the TV. The DVDs I was playing are scratch-free and work without issue on other DVD players.
