A very good player, only slightly spoilt by the odd quirk
4 April 2018
I bought this version of the player a while back, as I had updated our main TV to a 4K / HDR capable version. The upscaling works very well on standard 1080p blu-rays, but is less successful with DVDs, occasionally blurring the picture. Changing away from auto-selection solves this issue. The on-screen interfaces are, I am told by my sons, very reminiscent of the PS3. I have set up the streaming options, but very rarely use them. I have noticed that using a fixed IP results in the odd stutter; allowing DHCP to set the address resolves the problem. An Ethernet connection is more stable than Wi-Fi, but this may just be congestion on my network. The machine is quiet when playing.
I have been able to play my collection of Region 1 DVDs without issues; I have only tried one US region blu-ray and that also worked.
Very pleased with the purchase; one star removed for the niggles.
