This system looks great, but the lag on YouTube and Vudu is crazy slow. You will need to download the latest software update, burn it to disc and then play to apply. Can be a daunting task if you are not savvy in burning to disc procedures. For the money, I was very disappointed. The device is easy to connect to the internet / network , however, not Wifi so you will need to have it hardwired with an Ethernet cable to your router / modem. There is no option to surf the web, you only search through the YouTube option, which I might add, is very limited as to what you can search for and the results that are found. Stick to your computer for information you're looking for on the net, less hassle. Does not play well with CD's / DVD's that are burned from computer-Some work, some will not. Store bought DVD movies play fine, and the quality of the payback is nice.
For those of you not familiar with Vudu, you will need to enter your email address to create an acct and then you get the pleasure of searching through a maze of TV series, shows and the occasional odd cast. Once you make your selection, you have to pay to view each selection that you would like to watch. Netflix is a much better option-one low monthly price and you can view whatever you want till the cows come home.
There is also a Vudu App, which is a cluster of shorts you can view for free, such as movie reviews by a unknown critic, cooking short cuts, and a wealth of other useless information you may never have a need to know.
Overall, I would just pass on this one. Do your homework by checking out reviews, Cnet.com would be a good place to start for online product reviews. If this is a first time purchase, I would make a list of features you find attractive in a Blu Ray Home Theater System. Be picky! They aren’t cheap! Get the best quality for your dollar, and this would not be the one for you. Sorry RCA, for this family, you failed this test.
