This is my first Blu-ray so I really have no experience to compare my player with.
My main qualm is the instructions included with the player are very wordy, making for a very interesting few days of experimenting with my remote, especially when browsing Netfilx, i.e., I learned to press "Return" to browse for movies after incorrectly pressing "Exit," which takes one to the main menu, leading to a certain frustration of waiting.
Next, I still have yet to discover if I can set the player to not autoplay a disc if I leave it in and power off, then power on, which leads to wait time to turn off the disc to play Netfilx (a couple of minutes of sheer squirming mode).
Other than that, I really like my player. I have my wireless-N router a foot away and have been thinking whether to move to a network cable to speed up Netflix. But in comparison to my Netflix-enabled game console, my player leaves it in the dust.
