I had a Philips DVD player and a WDTV Live box... This player does all the DVD player did and more; as in it plays more files types, plays Blu-ray and plays 3D. It does what I used the WDTV box for only better. While the WDTV box has more 'apps', we only used it for Netflix and Youtube. This Philips player plays netflix just as well with better video quality! Those having problems with lockups, it is the Netflix app, not the player... I had the same issues with the WDTV box... if your connections is poor, the app will freeze and lock up the box or player. Not the fault of the Philips!
Bottom line, I traded in two older pieces of equipment, two cables, two remotes, etc, for only one. AND got more functionality and better picture quality. I highly recommend this product for anyone wanting to watch DVDs, Blu-rays, video files (plus audio and still pictures), netflix and Youttube..
