Summary: I was very disappointed in this product.I thought since it matched my TV it would be great.I had to run the volume near max all the time and the connections had to be jiggled to get a good connection
Summary: Maybe this is just a coincidence, but any time we try to play movies from Universal, they skip and freeze up. Since this does not have WiFi, the update process is a pain unless the player is right next to your internet source where you can manually connect it. The USB method of updating is a pain. Anyway, even after updating the firmware, a decent number of movies still won't play and they're all Universal movies.
Summary: First, I'll say the good things. The blu-ray player worked great. The actual sound coming out of the unit, whether direct from the player, or HDMI or optical cable from the TV, was really great. In theory this is an amazing piece of equipment, especially for this very affordable price. But the speakers hiss. They were all hissing, and it drove me insane.
Summary: After hooking up everything I was disappointed in this sytem. Could not get enough volume while watching TV, Did not tell me what kind of signal I was getting. IE: dolby digital, pro dolby etc. Sound was no better than tv. Over all performance was sub par in my opinion. I returned the unit for a full refund.
