Rated 1 out of 5 by watkins17 this is a piece of junk....never had problems with rca products before but there is a first for everything i guess. ive had this for about 6 months and the tuner stopped working and when i called customer service about this...they treated me like i was an idiot asking me if the product was even plugged in. needless to say they wanted me to ship it to them so i did, and i payed for the shipping cause they wouldnt. i kept my shipping label and tracked it until it was delivered. i called the warehouse and they told me that the electronic piece that was inside was fried and they wanted 250 dollars to repair it...i said he** no. i asked them to send it back to me and they wanted me to pay for shipping once again. since then, i have replaced all rca products with phillips products and have had very pleasant customer service when i cant figure something out.......hope this is very useful to whom ever.
Rated 1 out of 5 by kisstie78 Not a good deal!
I purchased this a year ago - nothing but problems. Slow to turn on, now it really won't turn on at all, sound is horrible quality! I am thanful I spent the $20.00 for the 2 yr service plan and all BUT I wish I would just have gone awhole different direction on this purchase - do NOT recommend!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Scorpio90 Features are useless when the system doesn't work!
I bought this theater system at a local Walmart. I was hooking up the speakers and noticed a rattling noise when I took the final speaker out of the box. I turned on the speakers and the one which had a loose part on the inside did not work. This Blu Ray player looked very promising in stores. I was hoping to enjoy the Blu Ray, Netflix, Vudu, internet, dvd, and radio. The Netflix ran so slow through this Blu Ray player that I turned it off and watched Nexflix on my Xbox. This will be returned tomorrow. I don't recommend wasting time and money purchasing this system. I suggest going to an actual electronics dealer and getting better quality merchandise. This is the last time I will buy major electronics from Walmart.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rubytube SYSTEM FREEZES UP, NO UPDATE AVAILABLE!
The system freezes up after scrolling thru menu items such as Netflix movies and other browsing I think if they had went a step further and added a memory card of some type they would have prevented this by giving it the space to store the extra information. It seemed as if it filled up the memory space it had by browsing then had to be turned off and on again in order to be able to add a movie to queue or to just continue looking. Other then this drawback it seemed to work fairly well for the money spent. There were no firmware or software updates to get for this unit so it's likely to never perform right without the ability to store memory or do a system upgrade and the remote was very weak as well. I would have to say it's a bad move by RCA and a dud unfortunately, I had very high hopes for this system and especially for the price.
Rated 1 out of 5 by TamGoody Do not buy this system
I just bought this system yesterday and I guess it's right that you get what you pay for. As soon as I got home, I was so excited to be able to watch movies on Netflix and listen to Pandora, but it took me forever to try and figure out how to even access these programs. I will try one more time tonight, but I think I'm going to just box it up and take it right back for a better one. There's also a loud noise coming from the box and it will not go away for anything. The only way you can tune the noise out is to turn the volume up loud enough so that you can't hear it. Setting up was quite simple, but the set up for netflix, pandora, etc. was horrible. The remote didn't even seem to work. The whole system runs slow. Save your money.
Rated 1 out of 5 by hawkfan75 TERRIBLE! DO NOT BUY!!!!
I'm not even sure how well this this works because it is SO user UNfriendly. The instructions are horrible and vague, there is no number to call. There is a web address in the manual that is supposed to give further help, but it only repeats what the manual says. I would give anything to take this back.
Also, although it advertises that it hooks up to netflix, vudoo, and youtube, keep in mind you have to use a cable to hook your player to your computer. It is not wireless.

RCA has really slid down the pipe.
This unit has a very loud cooling fan, specially noticeable in a bedroom setting.
Getting the unit to read blurays is an adventure all unto itself.
Save your time and money for a more quality unit.
Rated 1 out of 5 by cowboylvr This is JUNK
I have had this system for less than a year now and have had nothing but problems with it, I could not use any of the internet features it told me it was not hooked up to the internet but alas i was able to use netflix and pandora. it freezes up and locks out to the point where i have to shut it down just to unfreeze it and sometimes that will not work i have had to actually unplug it from the wall. half the time the open/close will not work. the netflix options were hard to manuver but we can do itjust fine on our xbox. So to put it bluntly DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT
Rated 4 out of 5 by Geabaldyvx Unit is Great!!!
I have no idea what people are doing with these players but the unit I have works without a problem. I have a much nicer system downstairs in my home that has taken me years to build and hands-down it blows this away. However, at 180x the cost it should.
I placed this unit in my third bedroom which is used as a second den/Media room/Man Cave. The sound output is fantastic. I was worried that the small cube speakers would not sound good but for a room roughly 12x14 the sound is great. Video Playback from the BluRay or DVD portion works as expected. While there is a slight lag when navigating the menu it isn't major.
In all bang for the Buck you can't really go wrong..
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lizy I love it.
I think they have corrected the problems.
The first one I bought back in February 2012, I had to return because of problems starting DVD's, but after I returned it in March, the new one works great.
Every feature works. I really enjoy watching Netflix online movies using it in addition to DVDs.
The only distraction is the fan noise when it speeds up to cool it down after watching a movie for over an hour. It only lasts for about a minute
Rated 5 out of 5 by tandalaya I am so glad I bought this
Money well spent. I didnt know there was such a big difference in regular and blue ray, what a great picture and now i have sound that is surround, movies I cud not hear before , now its like im in a theater.
Rated 3 out of 5 by electrahog55 You get what you pay for, right?
In my opinion it's ok for the price if your on a budget as i was of course i would like more quality for the money but for that you have to pay the bucks to get it. It serves my purpose for now untill i can spend around a $1000.00 dollars then it will be obsolete! All in all for the money spent and going from nothing to this it's a good starter system for someone on a budget.
Rated 1 out of 5 by beecubed I bought this in-store without doing any research. What a mistake!
If you want this system for playing dvd's with Dolby sound, the one I bought will do that just fine. I have no idea about blu-ray since I don't do that.
If you want this system for internet streaming, particularly Netflix, DO NOT BUY IT! Nothing but problems. I have had this system about a year and I have been on the phone with my ISP at least fifteen times a month for the whole period. Netflix freezes up all the time. I thought it was my ISP. I even called Netflix a couple of times because I thought it was them. Turns out it was this system the whole time. I know that because I bought a Roku streaming player and it is fantastic. Not one problem to speak of so far and it is lightning fast. A night-and-day difference from this system.
Rated 1 out of 5 by cowboy2005 rca blu-ray home theater rtb 10223
I have had this player for 8 months. Around the 5 month mark it started not wanting to play dvd's, now after 8 months you have to fight with it to get it to play blu-ray's. I am planing on returning this if I can.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ldykga I haven't had this unit a year yet and I'm having problems. The remote just stopped working. I have tried universal remotes with no luck. Without the remote its pretty much useless. You can listen to cd's however there is no capability to skip tracks. Without a remote there is no way to play dvds because it will not move past the menu for the dvd. I will not buy a RCA product again.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rbm121273 very poor quality, constantly freezes up
hooking unit up was straightforward, but after that, instruction manual is vauge, the rca website doesnt even list this model, the remote is extremely cheap, and only seems to work sporadically, if at all, the open/close button not at all. it runs extremely slow, i cannnot seem to get a software update, continually getting an error message, and the new problem, the unit freezes up and doesnt work at all so you have to shut it off and restart while browsing in vudu or netflix, i wont ever buy another rca product again thank you
