"Easily better than the reviews state"4.0 starson by StarMenace
Pros: Excellent picture quality. Great Netflix and Pandora interfaces and controls. Wi-Fi is flawless and connects within seconds of turning on the unit. The sound quality is amazing for true HD sound. Regza-link to a Toshiba TV works perfect as well.
Cons: Yes, it is a little slow loading discs but not SO much slower than comparable models (within 10-15 seconds). Lack of internal memory is a con but there's a USB 2.0 port on the back and USB drives are fairly inexpensive anyway.
Summary: Overal this is a great blu-ray player at an amazing price. The only two things I have not used are the Blockbuster and Vudu players. If they're anything like the Netflix or Pandora then I'm sure they're very nice. Bottom line, highly recommended especially if you can get it for under $175.
