MORE TROUBLE THAN ITS WORTH
on 22 May 2015
MULTI REGION / MULTI CONFUSION
After 5 months trying to get to grips with this player the frustration is killing me!
I spent several hours working out how this player actually does the basics when I first got it, and it does a brilliant job playing DVDs and BLU RAYs from all regions. There the good news ends!
I have had several different makes and models and never struggled with any of them, but this machine has me beat.
The on screen home page menu is as confusing as they come. Making any adjustments is a task. No doubt this machine will do anything you want it to do, including brewing tea during the commercial breaks, but just try to fathom out how! And don't even think about trying 3D or the 2D to 3D facility!
It does have WI FI and after many hours I eventually got Youtube, but scrolling from point A to point B to actually watch it, or anything else, takes an eternity, and after more attempts than I care to remember I have given up trying to get Youtube to play unrestricted Adult movies.
If you simply want a player to play multi-region discs you may eventually succeed with it. If you're looking for a player that actually DOES all what's on the lid of the tin I suggest you go for a player that has a simple usable layout with clear straightforward instructions, rather than this baffling enigma.
