Advantages: Top quality picture and sound from blurays and loads of features
Disadvantages: Long(ish) start up time
Starting at the beginning, an immediate issue is the start up time. From the time you press the on button on the remote it takes at least 30 seconds, and if you put in a dvd or bluray disk you are looking at the same again. It may not sound like much, but when you are looking at a blank screen for this long it seems like ages. Having said this everything else is great. It plays blurays with top quality and the highest audio quality. It also plays videos of USBs, and you can see photos from you digital camera by inserting the memory card. These features are really nice additions. Another great feature is that it is web enabled. At the moment this means you can search for and watch youtube videos through it if you connect it to the internet. More applications are coming in the future as well which enhances its use from a simple dvd or bluray player. However to make this work you have to have a LAN line trailing across your floor as there is no option to use wireless interenet yet. This is a downside as you won't want ot leave a wire across your floor all day so you will have to keep on reconnecting it if you want to use the web feature. Finally, another bonus is that it has an in film menu. Basically when you press the button for menu a toolbar comes up across the bottom of the screen with various options like changing the audio or language of the film. This is great as you can carry on watching the film as you change the options and you won't lose your place in the film.
Summary: Worth the money
