My main reason for choosing this over other Blu-ray players was because of the interface. It uses the familiar XMB (cross menu bar) menu system as seen on the PS3 and PSP devices, so no new learning curve there. In terms of the actual Blu-ray disc playback I didn't worry, as at this price range all the main manufacturers probably produce a decent enough player that will give acceptable results in the home; so this player won me over on the other features.
The media streaming is perfect. It seems to stream all my files in varying formats including ones that used to show up on the PS3 as "unsupported data." I have a NAS drive (networked hard drive) to which I have copied my music and film collection to, and so far everything has streamed great, with no stuttering or freezing whatsoever even on the higher quality HD larger files. Also when streaming over my network it seems to start playing quicker (and buffering quicker) than the PS3 did.
Blu-ray playback is excellent - I am very impressed with the output onto a 37" screen and I have this coupled with a Sony surround speaker system again with excellent results and great quality.Read more ›
All in all for me a good buy, the only reason for four stars are the fact that I had to have the unit exchanged and the fact that the Wi-Fi connection does not have channel 4 on demand or ITV player because of the lack of flash player which I understand cannot be installed.
What can I say it's amazing! Blu-Ray is great, Saving Private Ryan on Surround sound and Blu-Ray is easily the best test for it, great quality and clarity. I've always wondered what the benefit of HD is, it's not what you can see in the main part of the screen it's the peripheral vision where I notice it. Trees in the background etc look so much crisper and clearer.
Wifi was a doddle to set-up, I was streaming Top Gear off the iplayer within 10 Minutes of opening the box.
If you're debating the jump from Blu-Ray to DVD, I would certainly recommend it! All I'd recommend is make sure to get a decent HDMI lead like this one to get the most out of your Blu-Ray Player: 2 METER PRO GOLD RED (1.4a Version, 3D) HDMI TO HDMI CABLE WITH ETHERNET,COMPATIBLE WITH 1.4,1.3c,1.3b,1.3,1080P,PS3,XBOX 360,SKYHD,FREESAT,VIRGIN BOX,FULL HD LCD,PLASMA & LED TV's AND ALSO SUPPORTS 3D TVS.(2m/6.4ft)
I am a delighted customer!
