This is far from the best blu ray player on the market - that's going to be the main point of this review, but let's start with a few positives first.
It is light-weight and very easy to connect providing you have a HDMI input in your television - it literally takes a matter of seconds. I have three televisions in my house but only one blue ray player - this one - so I am quite often moving this blu ray player around to different rooms and connecting it to different TVs - this is why it being lightweight and easy to connect is a good point for me. The picture quality is what you would expect, and the remote is easy to use, and it does exactly what a blu ray player should do - it plays blu rays.
But there are negatives. First all, the price - this unit is quite overpriced in my opinion. You can get blu ray players that are quite a lot cheaper than this that do the exact same job just as well. And I don't think you're getting that much more for the extra money you pay - for one thing, it's not as though this blu ray player is exceptionally well made. The buttons are a big issue - they're very flimsy, made of light squashy plastic. The eject button has already broken on mine - pushed in, so there's now a hole where it used to be and I have to rely on the remote. The other buttons are designed the same as this, so I don't think it'll be long before the same thing happens to them.
So, to summarise - if you want a blu ray player, find one either a bit cheaper or a bit better made than this one. Over and out.
Recently, I found out that I was missing out on a lot of blue-ray tapes, due to the fact that I only had a very old dvd player. Thus I decided to upgrade and I chanced upon this little beauty. I agree that it is a bit on the more expensive side, however it is quite worth the price. It looks extremely sleek and it''''s quite small, and does not take up a lot of precious space. It also is very light in weight, and not very hard to bring around the house (I have no idea why you would do that, but I felt that this is one of it''''s key points). The player works fine, nothing special though, so if you are looking for a simple blue ray player and not looking for anything unique or special, you probably don''''t need to get this one as it''''s a bit pricy.
