I think I got a dud
on 3 December 2014
I do not doubt the 5 star reviews here however my experience was far from 5 stars. Like everyone has said this is really easy to set up just plug in and play. It even came with a HDMI cable supplied. The remote also had a battery and I had it all going in less than 5 minutes. Those are the pluses.
Then 24 minutes into a region 1 disc - which was brand new - it stated to pause and judder. I cleaned the disc and it was ok for another 30 seconds, this went on till the end of the film. I then tried another region disc that was also new and it only took 17 seconds to jam. So I tried a disc I had recently played and had no problems with and it lasted 28 seconds. I was a bit miffed at this point and decided I had had enough I contacted Amazon who gave me printable return slips and guaranteed me an instant refund, for which I was pleased and will buy another.
This is the second Sony I have had that performed less than expected and I am now sticking with Samsung and LG. The other thing is there is no LED display with this model either. I may well have got a dud but I am not prepared to risk another failure. My new all region LG is working like a dream and has a display too. I just thought I would share my experience with this product.
