This was Wal-Mart's Black Friday sale where they went pretty quick. I did pick one up a couple of days ago and hooked it up at home. The Good: Picture is amazing. I had a Sony upconvert that worked great, but nothing compares to Blu-Ray. The sound is crisp and clean. Also, you can access the menu and turn certain special features on and off while the movie is playing. The Bad: It does not connect to the internet. (You can upgrade the firmware by burning a CD from the mfg website and loading it into the BD player). It is BD 1.1 compliant which means you can do the pic in pic on some movies, but no online special features which is fine with me. I am one that just wants to watch the movie. I could care less that the director ate a bagel while filming that scene or chat with someone while watching a movie. The Ugly: Load time. There is really no difference between the loading of a regular DVD on my DVD player vs. loading one on this BD player. Overall, if you want a BD player without all of the bells and whistles just to watch Blu-Ray movies, this is a great buy.

you dont get netflix, you cant chat online while watching a movie, no dont get many of the current trendy wants people fuss about wanting. this is a very basic devise. a blu ray movie plays absolutely beautifully. last weekend, gothika was on sale at best buy for ten bux, so i finally bought my first blu ray disc. the picture was alike watching the dark knight in the imax. just flawless, textured and awing. by the way: it is connected to a 40 samsung lcd 1080p tv. the load time is frustrating. the overall response time just kills me. ive contemplated both giving it a good kick or returning it in favor of a $40 samsung upconvert. two things keep me with it:

1 a friend of mine whose opinion i value has offered much disappointment in his upconvert player. this player basically upconverts [regular dvds] as well, but i am not unhappy with the picture.

2 it is a blu ray player i could afford. i dont use netflix nor rent online. there are few movies that i really watch, and when i sit to watch them, i want to feel spoiled. this devise, slow startup times and all, does the job.

i want to express frustration with the processor, but i also want to confess that i did expect that. for the money, it is worth the value. if you have more money to spend, though, you may find yourself in favor of a better product strictly to avoid frustration. it takes approx. twenty seconds to turn on and open the optical rom drive and there is no real display. there is a red light when the devise is off, and there is a blue light when a disc is in and the player is on, and that's it. i would very much prefer a display. but as conveyed above, i couldnt afford one with a display and faster processor, but i do have a blu ray player and i am happiest about that.

Parents picked this up for me as a Xmas gift. I too am a guy that just wants to watch Blu-Ray movies without having to sell a kidney. I don't need to download things from NetFlix. I don't need it to connect with YouTube or Pandora. I care little to nothing about director commentary. If you're looking for extras, this is not the way to go. This player simply gets the job done. I'm watching in 1080p-24 the same as a 200-400 dollar unit. As far as speed, it is a bit sluggish compared to most BDs. I don't mind waiting 15-20secs to watch movies. I do mind paying 300 dollars for bells and whistles I'll likely never use. Also, this player requires no firmware update to use optimally.

I got this during Black Friday 2009 for $78. I hooked it up with an HDMI cable I got from amazon for less than $5 to a Panasonic 42" Diagonal Plasma HDTV 720P model# TH-42PX60U. The picture quality from this blu-ray player is simply awesome, just the same as my Samsung BDP-1500 player which is hooked up to my 1080 HDTV. No difference in quality. The loading time is a bit slower than my Samsung but only by a few seconds longer, so no big deal for me. This magnavox has no extra features like the more expensive ones and no display in the front panel of the unit but if all you want is a great viewing and HD audio experience watching your Blu-ray and/or DVD movies, this unit will definetely not disappoint most. I found the manufacturer's website not too user friendly and online support appears to be lacking or very little which is why I gave this product 4 stars instead of 5. To me the product as well as the manufactures support after the sale are both equally important. No firmware updates found for this unit but so far, this unit has played all of my blu-ray movies including newest releases like G.I. Joe and Transformers. Some of the negative reviews I have read are likely due to the expectations of features or did not know how to set up correctly. Read the manual, it will only take 5-10 minutes but well worth it. Don't fall for the hype of needing to buy $40+ HDMI cables. Like I said, the $2-$10 ones sold at AMAZON.com will deliver exactly the same (just make sure they are high speed). The Monster HDMI cable which I have on my 1080 HDTV looks no better than the <$5 one I have with this magnavox.
