This is our first blu ray player, after researching all the brands on the market, doing price comparisons, we decided on this unit. It wasn't the least expensive by any means, but I am very happy with it overall! It was pretty much plug & play, we were watching a movie within no time. We also recently ditched all pay tv except for streaming Netflix, which is a breeze using this player. There have been a couple of instances where the unit will freeze, I have 4 kids who use it more than my husband & I so not sure if they did something but when it has happened, all I do is unplug the unit for a minute & let it reset itself. The other issue I discovered was that when the batteries were going, only part of the remote worked which seemed odd. But with new batteries it worked fine.
It does everything! We can access our Netflix on here, as well as play our DVDs. This DVD player is also able to play Blu-ray DVDs from Germany, which is helpful to us since we just moved from overseas. We are very pleased with the system.
