Poor product for Yamaha

Jake Atwood "Jakester", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a big yamaha fan but this blu-ray player falls short in so many areas. For $250 I would expect more. It had firmware issues from day one. The menu sucks. The FF function doesn't work well. The tray doesn't eject well. It took 30 minutes just to set it up with my yamaha receiver so it would work.

Not impressed- very buggy

  • 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. We just bought a 3D TV about a month ago, this is when I started to notice an additional flaw with this unit. Certain 3D movies are practically unwatchable due to what seems to be a decoding issue.
  • Pros: 2D & Sound are excellent
  • Cons: Occasionally unresponsive & needs to be unplugged. Some 3D movies are unwatchable

  • Summary: Well made, but No apps, not fast, cost more than common name brands. Used with a Yamaha receiver which had no function controls using the receiver remote, so poor planning by yamaha

Laut und geht von alleine an

nox, Amazon

  • Summary: Das Gerät ist nicht geräuscharm. Sehr schade, wenn man auch mal leise Musikstücke genießen möchte. Die CD/DVD- Klappe klappert, sie ist nicht fixiert und kann, z.B. beim putzen, aufklappen. Wenn man es an einen Mehrfachstecker mit Netzschalter anschließt und den Mehrfachstecker mit Strom versorgt, geht der Player von alleine an und wieder nach 20s aus, ohne dass man ihn bedienen kann und z.B. anlässt.

Déçu

  • Summary: J'ai acheté ce produit pensant avoir un lecteur blu ray haut de gamme, mais les chargements sont longs, avec des problèmes sur certain blu-ray (arrêt intempestif) alors que la PS3 s'avère plus efficace.
