I have been a fan of Clearplay since they started. The earlier, non-HD players, had a few flaws, but worked well. There were problems with some of the movie filters which caused the player to hang up momentarily. The next generation of players seemed to have some serious technical problems, and at one point I thought about cancelling my membership. I decided to speak with their customer support group and decided to give their new HD player a try. I love it. The quality is there. They still have a problem with some of their movie filters, but I have not experienced any hardware issues. It looks like they got a handled on their players.

I absolutely love my ClearPlay DVD player. I have owned it for close to a year and never had a problem with it. I rent from Blockbuster, Redbox, etc., and I've never rented a movie for which a filter was not available.

I see that many people on Amazon are upset about ClearPlay's membership policies, and I agree that it is not made clear on their website that if you don't continue your membership, you can't continue to use the filters. This should definitely be clarified. The salesperson I spoke with when first purchasing my player made sure I understood that the filters could no longer be used once my membership expired. Although this means I have to keep my membership current, I understand their business model... how will they make money when people only purchase a 1 month membership, download all the filters they can, and then quit?

Occasionally ClearPlay has specials where you can extend your membership for a lower rate, so if you take advantage of the specials, you pay a lot less in the end.

For my family, it is totally worth the money to avoid the toxic content many movies contain.

For the past several months, ClearPlay won't work with newer rental DVD's. Apparently, Netflix and Blockbuster have changed something to do with the catalog numbers of the rental DVD's, meaning that ClearPlay can't make the filters for them. If you are wanting to use this with rental DVD's, call ClearPlay first to find out if they've corrected this. But it does work pretty well with older or purchased DVD's.

UPDATE 1/23/10 - Talked with Clearplay tech support, and the situation regarding the above has apparently changed. Filters are now being created for new rental disk releases, and they are moving backwards through their catalogue of 3700 movies to revise the filters so that previous rental releases that didn't have filters will now have filters that work. Clearplay recommended going with Netflix over Blockbuster to reduce your problems with filters and rental disks.

UPDATE 10/22/2010 - This latest version of the Clearplay DVD player - 747 HD Upconvert - fixes all problems that I had with the previous 2 generations of Clearplay DVD players. This product simply works now, and I've updated my rating to 5 stars. Don't hesitate to get it if you want to filter out the filth from your movies. And yes, you have to pay a monthly or annual fee to have access to filters for new movies - if you don't want to do that, don't buy this player, or don't buy/rent new movies.

My family has used the ClearPlay DVD player for a couple of years now and we LOVE IT. We have played many DVD's rented from Blockbuster, Hastings, and RedBox without any problems. DVD's that have been purchased at stores like Target, Wal-Mart, or online here at Amazon also work fine. It is very important to my wife and I that we not feed our eyes, ears, and minds with gratuitous violence, sex scenes, and foul language (Romans 12:2).

Without ClearPlay we would not have been able to watch near as many movies that we would have liked -- even PG-13 movies often have very questionable content. We enjoy our "family movie nights" with all our kids and have watched hundreds of movies because the ClearPlay DVD Player allowed us to. The list of movies available are current (e.g. "New Releases" at Blockbuster or Redbox are often found on the ClearPlay list).

The process of knowing what's on the ClearPlay list when you visit the video store (or box) has been made especially easy now that we have a smartphone: I just visit the ClearPlay web site as I browse the store. One could also cross-reference by visiting the web site of where you want to rent or buy a DVD and then use the ClearPlay web site to ensure it has the title.

You can watch a lot of older movies on the list too (the ClearPlay list has thousands of titles!). If you previously avoided watching a lot of movies that had inappropriate content, you will be able to "catch up" on MANY of them and, thus, will find great joy renting cheaper, older movies that you can now finally watch without subjecting you and/or your family to "junk".

When you watch a movie with the Clearplay DVD player, you are barely aware that it is filtering out the inappropriate words and scenes.

We purchased at clearplay player back in July, and returned it in August because we were very disappointed with it and felt it did not live up to the advertisements for it. We had it on the strictest settings, but did not see any difference between those settings and the more tolerant ones. On many occasions, the player left content in the movie that my husband and I found offensive. It was great at taking out language, but terrible at taking out scenes and inuendos. We were not pleased with this product and felt there should have been a difference between strict and tolerant settings as advertised.
