Summary: My wife bought this device for me for father's day last year. I've been working away from home since then and haven't had time to really work out the kinks on the DVD player, but have now come to the conclusion that this is truly a poorly performing piece of technology.

Summary: Bought Yamaha Blu Ray player 1-2 years ago and it skipped and froze, Thought it was the discs but tried them in my Samsung and they worked. Bought another Yamaha [the one I am rating] and it has the same problem, skip and freeze. This is with 2 new BR discs I bought from you.
Summary: Stay Away!! Purchased this as an addition to my yamaha surround system, what a mistake. Although it is 2 years old, I have only played about 5 dvd's. it is installed in a bonus room that does not see a lot of activity. It suddenly just quit. No warning etc.
Summary: I've owned this player for about 4 months now. The player plays 2D just fine, but for some reason has to be reset (unplugged/replugged) every now and again because it doesn't respond at all when attempting to turn it on.
Summary: it's been a year, I'm on my second blu-ray S473. The first one locked up, had to unplug from power then plug back in to get it to reset. Locked up constantly... It was replaced with another one and it didn't lock up for a few weeks, then only did it once a week or so..
Summary: Movies freeze during play and the unit locks up requiring a re-boot (unplug/plug back in) to get it working again. The latest firmware update (Feb 2014) did not resolve this issue. GUI is not very intuitive.
Summary: First of all, I do a lot of research on electronics and had to replace my other Blu ray player because of all the new movies and was on my fourth up date. Well to my surprise I ordered this July 2014 and the player was made in August 2012.
