Needed a DVD player with streaming so I stopped into Walmart late at night and pick this one up for about $80 including tax. Figured I could get a better one once I had the time to research it a bit.
I've had this device for about 3 months and all the problems I've had are two. (1.# DVD's video will freeze or no audia, or big square pixels appear in place of the normal picture. #2.) This one is new. Netflix streaming movies will freeze up. I found this one out after calling the cable company support twice in two nights. After support did all their magic the picture was still frozen. The solution to this problem is the same for the DVD problem. Pull the plug, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in. Its a real pain in the backside but for $80 who can complain.
Was given this as a gift and had no problems for the first two months then it started to freeze all the time and I had to pull the plug out and plug it back in every time i tried watching a movie. Now it won't even turn on!
My rating isn't based on the units performance, because I wouldn't know. It has the logos for Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, etc. on the box that lead me to believe it was Wi-Fi ready. Maybe that was my fault but no where on the box did it say it needed an Ethernet connection to use these services. In fact the instructions didn't mention it either and I didn't even know it used an Ethernet cord until after I took it back and did some research. When I hooked it up and went to setup, the icon for Wi-Fi was grayed out and when I clicked it, it said I needed a "dongle" to receive a wireless signal. The instruction booklet said nothing about this "dongle", but when I looked online I found it is an accessory that costs around $40 and is only made by Samsung. Again, it said nothing about plugging it into Ethernet or I might have moved my modem. Should I have known by the price? Actually no, because I've never bought a Blu-ray player before. My Ethernet is upstairs in my office and my other Blu-ray player #that was a gift# is wi-fi enabled; I thought they all were these days. I won't recommend this unit simply because it does not tell you anywhere #except when you go to setup# that you need additional equipment. I also don't like making returns and this one was unnecessary and inconvenient.
Nickname NOT potown, Walmart must be playing a joke on me. Purchased this Blu-ray player seven months ago and have had no real problems with it. Set up was fairly easy. Player plays Blu-rays great and the upscaling makes my regular dvds look much better. Usb port is convenient. Remote control is set up much better than on my Sony. Anynet 2 works great with my Samsung flat screen. Smart hub makes searching apps much easier. Streaming is not too bad, sometimes there are some freezing issues. When it is updating through the internet you can't do anything and sometimes you have to restart after it's done. It's important that you let it finish. From what I have researched internet is a little slow on eighty percent of the players out there. Like some I thought this was wireless not wired. On the packaging of all of the manufactures it is a little misleading. On my second Blu-ray player I did more research. I picked mine up at Walmart when it was on sale so for the price I paid I got great value for my money. I recommend a extended warranty, it is inexpensive and will save you time and money if anything happens
I bought this yesterday at my local Walmart for $68 plus tax. Setup was a breeze and it came with batteries for the remote and it plays all of my Blu Ray movies and DVD movies with no problems. On the off chance that it might go bad like the other reviews have mentioned I bought the 2 year service plan as a backup plan if you will.
The blu ray only lasted 3 months. Will only play DVD now. Would also prefer Wi-Fi
It has great picture quality. It is very set up although setting it up on my hotspot so that I can use items that require internet access is not so easy to figure out. Otherwise it's easy to use and I'm satisfied with it.
I realize this is a BluRay player with HDMI output. But I was disappointed that there are no RCA outputs and no cable supplied. Other than that, the price point was good and should do the trick playing BluRay DVDs.
while this does have lots of perksI don't see what the big deal is. other than the options of the netflix and the vudu My son talked me into getting it. What he neglected to tell me was you need a GOOD name brand t.v. I bought an element hd and I'm pleased with it. he tells me I need a samsung to really see the difference.I cannot program it to connect with the interet.grrrrrSo all in all its rather a disapointment
I got this unit for a Christmas gift this year and unfortunately its garbage. Every time I want to use the unit I have to unplug it and let it restart and sometimes that doesn't work. I am taking it back today and exchanging it for something else. Please don't waste your time with this model of blu-ray player.
Constantly freezes. Have to unplug it.
Not worth the money. Would love to get my money back.
