I bought this for my living room, the kids already had a roku box in their bedroom and I wanted to be able to watch Netflix without having to move the xbox every time I wanted to watch a movie. First of all, if you are buying this for Netflix then there are better players out there. Buy the roku xs, it connects directly to your internet and is kid friendly ( they cant buy stuff on vudu, etc unless its unlocked). Netflix runs pretty slow on this device, it takes a minute or 2 to load Netflix, you hit the buttons and it takes time to scroll through and a lot of the time it will load the wrong movie because it is slow to catch up. If you expect it to be fast like a xbox 360, keep looking. if you are purchasing this as a first time on Netflix, it may be a good fit for you as your not expecting it to be fast. The bluray works great however. BUT there are just a good ones for cheaper and they have buttons on the front in case you lose the remote. This one does not. all you have is a power button, a open/close and a usb port on the front. Installing this was very simple, you don't need a computer to set it up like the roku box. It automatically found my connection (LAN# and I had no problems at all. I did not try wireless as we bought it to connect to our router to "throw the signal" to the rest of the house. Big selling point: you can use this directly to your router #LAN port on back), or you can use this wireless. Its up to you. If you don't have a computer, this is easy to setup witho03ut one and is still a pretty good value for your money.
