I've been working in the tech industry for 31 years. I've spent the past 5 in networking. It took me 5 tries to get this device to talk to my home wireless network. Note that I have 11 other devices on the same network and had no such issues with their setup. Each time you set up the wireless setting you have to start from scratch, a big pain. Once I got past the wireless setup, all was well. BluRays play with EXCEPTIONAL clarity and definition, which is in part due to the TV and in part due to this device. Controls work well, though in the 2 weeks I've owned it it's gotten "stuck" where it would not respond to the remote and I had to power it off and on to get it running again. This is a refurb item, at a refurb price, so I have lower expectation than if it were new. For a refurb it was a good value and it works good enough. If it had been new, I would have returned it due to the occasional freeze where I have to power off and on to reset this device.

I did not try out the blu-ray player itself. My main interest was the streaming wifi. I was having trouble getting the player to pass through the router and out to the internet. That's when I decided to call Phillips for support. They decided to cut me short and explained that it sounded like a router problem. I then called Cisco support for my router, but Cisco does not feel obligated to customers after the warranty period, so they referred me to some very nice people who offered to help. Star Wars Trilogy would have been cheaper than what they wanted, so I decided to give it one more try before going to bed. Voila!!! It works after all. Conclusion: Easy hook-up to internet if you don't miss some minor details. Support from Philips did not cut the mustard for me. Blu-ray, IDK because I decided to return it. I'm just not that interested in TV at the present time. Thanks for letting me try it out. May go back in a few weeks or months and try the Sony, if I can find one with good reviews.

I got a great deal. It was very easy to hook up and in just a few mins. I was watching movies on Netflex. When I get a DVD to watch I just put it in and watch. I am a senior and find many of the newer items are difficult for me to hook up as I don't understand the terms. No problem with this.

I got the refurbished 3D Bluray player to opt for a cheaper version than buying a brand new one and it is just as good as if it were brand new out of the factory. No problems whatsoever! It's worth saving your money!

Can't beat Philips quality for the price! I have an older Philips 7.1 home theater system and they work well together with my 42" VIZIO TV. No complaints, just great wireless entertainment.

This bluray works well. It has a very clean design and I like the simple touch interface on the from of the unit. My only major criticism is that you see the USB input onthe front of the unit in the store and assume that it is like most other bluray players in that you will be able to transfer a movie from your computer to a flash drive for the purposes of watchin in on your TV through the player. However, this particular model only supports .mp3, .wma, .jpg formats. (mosic and still pictures). The unit is not programmed with the ability to read .avi, or .mov, or any other video format for that matter. Therefore, you will probably almost never use the USB port on the machine. It's a video player... that won't play videos (at least from the USB input, anyway). For that reason I rated it average for performance. Otherwise, it is a nice bluray unit.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

It was easy to install and I was watching netflix with no problem. I like the part that it has wireless connection to the internet. It does not come with a HDMI cable so I had to buy me one, since my tv does not have many input/output ports. This blue ray should be 3d but I have not tried it yet, since I don't have a tv with 3d. I bought it re-furbished and so far I don't have a problem with it. I wish they would make the controls with the glow in the dark bottons but in overall I am happy with the product. it only costed me 69.00 dollars....thanks walmart!
