"Don't believe some of these people"4.0 starson by olatte
Pros: beautiful design, Anynet is awesome,
Cons: loading blu-rays is longer than loading dvds
Summary: some of these low end reviews coming from USERS dont represent this product so well.
After installing firmware 1.2 i have no problems playing any disc(including "live free or die hard"). But one thing i will give them is that load times are slower than the average consumer using DVDs is used to with the older format. I've been using this player everyday for a month and one time, just once, it locked up. Which was weird...but i turned it off and back on and i was back in business. No Biggie.
ADDITIONAL NOTE: I bought this blu-ray player along with both a SAMSUNG 120mhz 1080p tv and home theater system and let me tell you that the Anynet+ system is great. The 3 devices communicate with each other over HDMI. So lets say you turn on the blu-ray and pop in a disc...the tv goes to the HDMI input where the player is pluged in, and the home theater reciever goes to the correct audio input. AWESOME
