"Excellent with Blu Rays a noghtmare with standard Def dvd's"1.0 starson by shawnb16
Pros: Excellent Blu Ray performance, Good 5.1 Audio out
Cons: Constantly shutting down while plauying standard definition dvd's
Summary: I went through two players hoping the first was just a fluke but not so. Both players would play Blu Rays discs just fine and I was Impresssed, However I have a large collection of DVD's and am not ready to scrape them quite yet. Playback of standard def DVD's is just awful. Sound drop outs and worse the player just locks up and freezes or shuts down totally for no apparent reason. Yes I had installed the latest firmware on noth players, don't get me wrong I really wanted to love this player but it proved to be the most frustrating piece of electrical equipment I have ever owned. Kudos for Amazon for first exchanging and then refunding my purchase. I'll just wait for another generation or two to pass and hopefully they will get the hardware right.
