Summary: Unit didn't work to the point that we returned the item. Very often, the remote would not turn the product on. When it did turn on, the menu would appear for a second and then turn off. After several tries, turning the device on and off (without the remote), the menu would come up. Once the menu came up, the sound set up was very easy. Auto calibration of the surround sound was good.
Pros: Nice compact package with lots of features. Picture is very good. Sound good (but not great). Slick styling, the touch sensors are cool - way better than buttons.
Cons: Wireless broadband capability sux (not 5GHz capable). Software upgrade needed out of box, but has been impossible to install. A lighted remote would be nice for watching movies in a dimly-lit room.
Pros: I bought it to stream netflix and when it does work, I like the service. Fairly easy to setup and use
Cons: 1st unit had problems right out of the box. 2nd unit has issues EVERY time they issue another STUPID software upgrade. Netflix activation is "lost" and certain system settings are "lost". I have repeatedly told tech support and they won't/can't fix
Summary: Disclaimer : I bought this product as a shelf display unit and returned it about 24 hours after I bought it. First, the Good - this is a beautiful looking device and a beautiful sounding device. The exterior has a high gloss finish and the touch controls on the top of the device give it a real "next generation" feel. The back of the device is simple and intuitive. Speaker connectors are color coded and notched so you can't mess it up. Hardware setup was pretty easy.
Summary: I received my product yesterday. Here's the summary: PROS It looks and sounds great. The Blu ray gives very good pictures. CONS It's not cheap but I was going with the 'you get what you pay for' philosophy. The HDMI input ports don't work. I thought I was doing something wrong and spent hours trying to sort this out.
