First off: If you are only going to use this player as a portable device and never hook it up to an external TV, then it works pretty well.

My needs: I work for a company that is selling an audio device and we want a small Blu-ray player for demos. The RCA was purchased to use at customer sites so we didn't have to call ahead and check to see if they had a HDMI-capable display. For comparison, we have the Panasonic DMP-B500 which works very well, but it is twice the cost. We also have about a dozen different standard non-portable Blu-ray players we use.

Firmware used: 2.0.7428 (latest as of this review)

Issues:

- Does not play BD-R discs. Some of our test material is on BD-R, so this is an issue. For a home user, if you ever want to play back HD home movies, this is not the player for you.

- Huge lip-sync problem when using HDMI output. When playing back movies that have audio encoded in Dolby Digital or Dolby TrueHD over the HDMI output, there is a large delay between the video and audio. This one issue makes this product unusable for our needs. DTS Master Audio and LPCM content seem to be fine. Also, if you are just using the internal screen, it is fine. This is only an issue when you use the HDMI port. So, if you ever consider plugging this into a TV, you may want to reconsider.

- Does not "bit-stream" HD audio over HDMI. Almost all Blu-ray players have a menu option to allow you to either stream the original high-resolution audio (like Dolby TrueHD or DTS Master Audio) over HDMI, or have it down-converted into a simpler format (TrueHD --> Dolby Digital or Master Audio --> DTS). This player does not have that option and only sends the lower-grade down-converted audio over HDMI.

Size: 8-Inch Verified Purchase
Had this product for 2 weeks and took it on a trip to Florida with me. During several movies the video would skip or stop completely, and this was when it was on the table in the hotel room and not in a bumpy car. Then after about 15 blu-ray viewings, the player would not read the blu-ray disk and would say "bad disk". Several disks were tried and many were brand new. Every time the player would read "bad disk". The dvd reader continued to work but the play would no longer play blu-rays. This item was returned and I will be purchasing another brand.

I have to say I was very worried about buying this item and regretting it. I was never able to find a demo model. I am happy to say I really like it. A LOT.

It has a fantastic picture. While I am sure that it is not a 1080P LCD screen it is far better than any portable I have ever owned. I have owned about half a dozen or more portable DVD players and this one is FAR superior in the picture catagory. It is stunning. I did some research before my purchase and was not able to get the specs for the LCD and that was my one worry. I am very glad that it was not an issue. And I am VERY piccky about picture quality. At 10" it is one of the largest screens in the portable catagory and it is great.

Sound wise we have an issue. There are no buzzing, humming, or beeping sounds out of this unit, but the volume is too low. I think some people will be upset with how low it is. It is very crisp when played through the speakers and is OK if there is nothing else going on in the background. I figured headphones would be better. And, they were. Barely. I will have to pick up some headphones that have a volume control on them. Don't get me wrong, with the headphones the sound is perfect but sometimes you want a little louder that what this unit can produce. It came out of the box and the volume was already maxed out. I thought maybe it was low and I was wrong. Not a deal breaker for me simply because headphones with volume controls can fix that.

I tested the unit with BD, DVD, and DVD-R and they all played great. BD takes a little long to load but not too bad. I am just too used to the PS3 loading immediately. I did notice that DVD does not look nearly as good as BD does. That is a great indication that the screen is far better than 480P. BD is extremely crisp.

This player has a nice LCD and looks great, you can tell you are watching blu ray in high definition, I usually don't use computer animation to test picture quality but can't help but to admire how "crisp" they look.

I have a few disc playing DTS-HDMA and it was able to decode or at least grab the downmix from it. I have tested the HDMI picture it works just fine, 1080P compatible. But I have not tested the HDMI audio whether it can pass the downmix or bitstream (I think not likely), there appears to be no options to toggle this. In most cases this is not an audiophile's player.

I noticed it seems to load BDs faster than my standalone BD player, which was Sony's 2009 model.

Although it may seem pointless, one of the reason I bought this player is because it comes with composite A/V cable output, which is important to send the picture to a car A/V system, or you go to a hotel with an older TV. It also comes with home and car adapter and a nice fitting carrying case/bag. You can convert the carrying case to strap behind a headrest in the car; I think it's a pretty crude setup, and there seem to be no room to plug in the side connectors with the unit sitting in the bag. A little flap that opens on the side of the case to make these connections would have been nice.

The built in speakers is a bit weak, as in not very loud, but still stronger than most laptop speakers by a margin, and it should work fine in a quiet environment. There are 2 headphone jacks which is a nice touch, be prepared to crank the volume control all the way up, the player plays full dynamite range so the dialogue is a bit soft and explosion is still loud, as intended.
