Summary: I have mixed feelings about this hardware. The people claiming that cables are hard-wired on have outdated information or they're confused in some other way. Every speaker wire terminates with a plug.
Summary: this is an ok player. Only issues I have, it takes more than 30 sec. for the unit to go through all the start up checks before it will start. Sound is good, but it could leave you wanting to upgrade to get a bigger sound after using for awhile.
Summary: For what I paid for it I cannot complain, I wish it was louder but I guess this was meant for a smaller room than my small living room, maybe a small dorm room? I would recommend because it has other features such as Netflix on it and I use it to watch Netflix and play music, it also plays Blu Ray,...
Summary: Control panel light is too dim; I cannot see from across the room. I must get out of my chair, and walk over to the Philips with remote in hand in order to change settings. I say, I MUST GET OUT OF MY RECLINER! (Just like I use to in 1954 when I watched Milton Berle on the Dumont network.)
Summary: I purchased this to go along with my new Vizio 47" 3D TV. It was on sale for $129 before Christmas which is more reasonable than the current $165 price. This unit does what is says it will do fine but nothing more. It has a cheap feel to it.
Summary: This system is ok for the price. I have a 40 dollar unit I bought at WM that is better. I have a 380 unit that is way better. We put it in a large room , maybe 15 by15 or so. Volume is low until you get to very top of range but still does not blast for concerts or loud action movies.
Cons: Wi-Fi Signal, Speaker Length, Remote Response Time

Summary: Bought 2 of these during black friday at Wal-mart 2 years ago, so for the price I was excited. It works well enough and sounds MUCH better than the standard TV, but see my list of gripes: 1. Wi-fi signal is so weak that I am not able to use it to connect to Netflix or anything else.
