The picture quality is great.
R. Baird
Loading time is 175 seconds, until a picture or logo comes out...not bad at all...you still have time to get some movie snacks.

I would recommend this player to anyone as a great starter blu-ray player.

This player does all the important stuff very well. I was able to have it entirely set up in about 5 minutes. The picture quality is great, and I'm especially pleased with the upconversion of my DVD library. It does not have a remarkable number of outputs, but it has the HDMI and Coax outs that I need. The downsides are the cheap-feeling remote, the time it takes initially to load Blu Ray disks, and the fact that higher-end players have higher-end features.

Pros:
-cheap (especially since I got it free with the Amazon deal!)
-has the necessary features (mute HDMI audio, picture settings)
-great picture.
-Really easy to set up and use.

Cons:
-The remote is rather sad and pathetic.
-Long load times of Blu Ray disks (does not appy to regular DVD)
-Lack of high-end features.

I am writing this review because I see that nobody has addressed problems with firmware yet. I have and I am really frustrated. Firstly the player has no ethernet ports so downloading firmware is something that has to be done manually. This player comes with an SD slot which I figured would work for downloading firmware updates but it apparently doesn't even do that. I downloaded the updates to my SD card and the player recognized the updates; only the "loading software" screen stayed on the screen for about a half hour to an hour before the player just shut off from sitting idle too long. Having read a few forums, I concluded that I would probably have to go out and get discs to burn the software onto so just to make my player play newer blu-rays, I have to spend more money. My point is that other blu-ray players have the feature of simply plugging in an ethernet port or connecting wirelessly to the internet; which means firmware happens without doing a thing. The player will be fine for awhile but you'll be pretty irritated when you come across a movie it won't play and need to get the firmware.

The movies it does play it does just fine. I guess I just don't like having to go way out my way just to make a product do what it is supposed to.

We've had this for a month and are real happy with it. Consumer Reports rated it (actually the precursor model) as a best buy and they seem to have got it right. It is every bit the equal, or superior, to the Sony Blu-Ray that we paid 3 times as much for and crapped out just after the warranty was over. The picture quality is execellent and it is simple to set up and use.

I made the choice for this player since it was cheap and I wanted to a bluray player to supplement my Xbox 360. The Sylvania gets the job done. I may not get Bluray LIVE, but I have yet to find the technology developed enough to make it worth my while to invest in. The picture quality is great for the price and lets be honest-- if you're considering this player you probably have an equally entry-level type HDTV as well.

Get this if you're an HD enthusiast on a budget OR a disgruntled 360 owner. Bare bones Bluray at its best!

I have never heard of Sylvania prior to buying this Blu-Ray Player (and I would have not purchased it had it not come free with the purchase of a Samsung LCD tv), but after setting this baby up, I could not give it anything less than 5 stars!

The player itself is easy as macaroni to set up (trust me, you will not need the manual for directions!) and after about 2 minutes, your home theater is good to go!

I played Planet Earth via Blu Ray as well as 2001: Space Odyssey; these movies looked flawless in 1080p. This player is very easy to operate and the upconversion of regular DVD's look amazing as well! To the untrained eye, one may not be able to tell the difference, but if you are a visual techie of any kind, the Blu-Ray v.s. DVD PQ debate is as much a thing of the past as the actual DVD's themselves: Blu-Ray definitely is the way to go! Do your HDTV a big favor and buddy it up with a reliable Blu-ray Player. The Sylvania NB 530 SLX will not disappoint!

As a few other reviews here have mentioned, the load times can sometimes take a while (I've had waits of up to 20 seconds before the player itself powers up and functions). When I hit the power button, the Sylvania NB530SLX will greet me with a creepy "Hello" text on the front panel, but during those 10-20 seconds that it is powering up, the player simply will not respond to any button you press. Even the OPEN/CLOSE button will not even affect its booting. To some, this may be a huge flaw because my understanding is that a PS3 or another expensive BD player can all read Blu-ray movies with speed and ease. But to aspiring Shaolin monks with the patience and tolerance of a banana slug such as myself, 20-30 seconds is something I can easily handle!

Take your pick with the many offerings available online, but the Sylvania is a great buy for the relatively inexpensive price of $128.60 (price as of 9/15)!

This blu-ray player came with a tv that I purchased so I cannot complain about the price. It has had a few problems though. There have been some discs that seem to have absolutely no blemishes or scratches and the player will skip or just freeze. One of these discs was straight out of the package. Other than that, do not lose the remote as there are very few control options on the face of the unit (play, pause, stop). The remote offers several options though and all the features are pretty neat.
