I found myself in a spot trying to decide whether or not to purchase a blu-ray player. I had thought about buying the PS3, but that $400+ price range was just too much to spend. So I bought this one, and although you sacrifice a little loading speed, (which really, if your sitting down to watch a movie, the extra 30 seconds to a minute of waiting when you put the disc in is not a concern.) but you get a great player that performs great. Great picture, great sound. And with the upconversion, your regular dvd's will look better than ever. Not to mention the package came in my mail in less than three days and I only purchased the normal shipping. I deffinetly recomend this player to anyone. I've watched already at least 10 movies on it. its so much fun to watch.
I got this because it was cheap and had many more 4 & 5 star reviews than just about any other Blu-ray player I looked at. It took all of 5 minutes to set it up. Played a dvd first, then I rented the newest Blu-ray movie out and it played both beautifully. It isn't slow at all, loading the blu-ray disc was the slowest part taking about a minute, but the menu and using the skip buttons were all just as fast as a dvd player. I hooked this up to my tube tv set (which is still relatively new) and even without the hd it has a slightly crisper and clearer picture.
This machine worked perfectly on the Blue-Ray disc that I played but on 3 regular DVD's the sound drops out for 1-2 seconds every minute or so. The picture goes blank for 1-2 seconds every 5 minutes or so. I called Sylvania customer service (actually Funai) and they said this unit has a problem re-adjusting to standard DVD's after playing a Blue-Ray.
This blu-ray player is awesome, and you can't find one for anywhere near this awesome price!! This product plays blu-ray discs seamlessly and plays and upscales DVDs. I have watched several movies in both blu-ray and DVD with no problems of any kind. A huge bonus, this product comes with a 7' HDMI cable so it's ready to rock straight from the box. I'm very pleased with this product, and would recommend it to anyone!!
It is an outstanding product with an amazing picture. And what a great value!
But what a strain updating the firmware. Nothing in the owners manual/box said the firmware needed to be updated. I only found that out when I tried to watch a Blu-ray DVD. I had to go to a website (not Sylvania's), download a 32 MB binary file to my hard drive, convince my virus protection software that it was OK to do so, open the file, extract it, unzip it, uncompress it, then burn it onto a CD. (Odd it wouldn't let me put the file on a blank DVD- weird since this is a DVD player). Then I put the CD in the DVD player, pressed go, and everything was good from there. Warning: if you are not computer savvy, you need to call the teenager across the street to come over and help you. You need adequate memory on your hard drive, a blank CD and make sure your computer is capable of burning a CD. Seems like the manufacturer could have done this when they had the DVD at the factory.
Excellent picture. Menu functionality is easy to use and understand. It is a great buy.
Not compatible for CD-R playback. Dropped files.No version #--couldn't update firmware. Returned in 2 wks--bought a Sony BluRay
After researching and doing alot of comparing this was the best BLUE RAY player for the price . After ordering it on a Monday and receiving it at home that Wed. with Walmarts .97 cent shipping we tested it out and was amazed. Easy set up and disc load up time was enough for us to get comfy .. PICTURE & SOUND is the best even makes our regular DVD's appear 10 times better which is good since we have a good collection!! Trust me if you want a great item at a great price go with this Product, you wont be dissapointed!
Removed from box, would not turn on, after unpluging a few times unit turned on but drawer would never open
I purchased this Blu-ray payer a couple of weeks ago. Would not recognize the HDM1 cord. Went to Sylvania customer service. Tried to download the new update file. Kept sending a .bin file instead of the needed zip file. Called support and they told me it was my problem with my computer. Went to a friend that is very good with computers, she had the same problem. Called customer service again, explained the problem, tried to get them to e-mail me the proper update file and they said it was against policy to e-mail updates. Got frustrated and returned the player. Found out later doing more research on the internet that this player is impossible to update. Piece of GARBAGE.
Easy to set up, picture is great. Even regular DVD's look great on it.
This Blue-ray disc player is a great value for the price. The picture and sound are crystal clear and even regular (non Blue-ray) discs look better than on a regular DVD player. Highly recommended.
for the money this blueray player is great i will buy another one soon
This item is well worth the money which was not much. A child can set it up in less than a minute. My DVDs play much better on this.
Easy to use. Excellent 1080 picture.
I bought the blue ray for my husband's birthday, we have both been very impressed w/ the picture & sound quality, the clarity is amazing & it is a joy to watch movies, doesn't matter if they are blue ray or not, they are all clear
This is a really good player for the price. The picture quality is excellent. I would have liked it if they had a fiber optic hook-up for the sound instead of just the coaxial. The one thing that is not shown in the ad is that this player comes with a FREE 6ft. HDMI cable included in the box!!
I brought this Blu-ray player for my daughter. She is 15, and it only took her about 5 minutes to hook it up! I hear her bragging about the picture quality, and I know she knows what she is talking about because she is truely a Tekkie! Thanks for a great player and great value Walmart!
EXCEEDS ALL EXPECTATIONS! GREAT VALUE AND PERFORMANCE!
The system performs very well it has a very good output and is a great value, including a HDMI cable.
