Summary: This machine began malfunctioning almost from the start, often freezing and needing to be unplugged and plugged back in repeatedly in order for it to work at all. Finally, a few weeks before the warranty expired, it began locking up every time I tried to use Netflix.
Summary: Amazon took care of us after an absolute nightmare experience with this product. Lesson learned, I should have read all the comments and reviews. Have loved Yamaha since I was a kid but boy did they lay an egg with these. Should have been a mass recall and an apology letter.
Summary: a few weeks ago I accidentally bought a blu-ray dvd movie that was a region 2 dvd movie. I really wanted to watch this movie on my tv so that is why I bought this player. I downloaded the upgrade and changed the set up menu and it says it will not play due to region code.
Summary: This BD-S693 replaced my older DVD player. This was a good choice. At FIRST, that is. Then things rapidly went to hell in a hand basket. Set up was fairly straightforward. The remote is not overly loaded, so you can understand every button.
Summary: Like a few others here, I ignored the bad reviews thinking Yamaha simply couldn't make a product this poor. Boy, was I ever wrong. Both the remote and the buttons on the unit are unresponsive, you have to press them multiple times to get to where you want to go.
