Have had this blu-ray player for 5 months now, purchased it from Argos at £100.00. Great deal indeed.
The build is good, slim and light, will fit perfect on any shelf and has a nice design to it, at first look you can see that the disc drive is hidden behind the front panel, which is good if you have children as they can tend to stick objects in places they shouldn't, most importantly there is no bottons as these too are hidden behind the front panel.
When you power the player on for the first time, it very easy to setup, not much to do really, when ejecting the disc tray you notice that the front panel flaps down half way in an angle with the disc tray sitting outwards, you put your disc in and press eject and the drive dissapears into the player closing the front panel behind it, it looks fancy and gives it a very modern future like look. As metioned above, hidden behind the the panel are bottons, these are touch sensetive that control, eject, play, standby, rewind, stop and forward. Also behind the front panel you will notice a USB port for playing all your media..
On the back of the player your connections consist of, 1 HDMI port, 1 Digital Optical Audio Output, 1 LAN port and 6 Output Component, there is even a small builtin fan to keep your system cool.
When it comes to how quick the player loads blu-ray disc, it is fast enough, it all depands on the size of the information on the disc. The player can play DVD formats including, DVD-r, DVD+r, DVD+DL.
The player can aslo play various video files like, Divx files, Mkv files all of which you can put onto a disc or put on a storage device, such as a USB pen drive. The quality of HD movies are very good, also when you watch a normal standard dvd the player will upscale the video that best suits your TV which is very good as you get a more sharper and colourful picture. The sound is good, although you need to link the player up to a surround sound system to get the full experience.
The remote is easy to use and every botton is laid out properly, but there is a few smaller bottons some people may find hard to see and use.
Another good feature, this player can connect to the interent and get new important updates for your system and are able to connect to youtube and watch videos through the player onto your TV
Would highly recommend this product as its good value for money with many features.
Summary: Great product as its value for money with added features
