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: 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.
Summary: Unfortunately this blu-ray player was bad right out of the box. The unit would not power on until after I would pull and reconnect the power cord. And then the unit would freeze during playback and would not respond to remote commands or any buttons pressed on the unit.
Summary: This device is entirely unreliable. 1. When you power it on, it powers off again. Solution - hit power again, make cup of tea. 2. It freeze randomly at "HELLO" or "HOME". Solution - remove plug, reinsert, go to step one above, press power twice. Make cup of tea 3.
Summary: I bought the previous version of this (the 671) 13 months ago - it never worked well, and then died 1 month out of warranty. Both video and audio quality were mediocre for a $300 player, and reliability was obviously poor.
Summary: I have owned many Yamaha products through the years and looked forward to another great product from them. However that was not to be. From the very first time I powered up this system it would not play Blu-ray disc - simply locked up after the initial read - I tried several disc but none would play...
