Great Blu-Ray player!
on October 6, 2011
I hesitated to buy this Blu-ray disc player because there were no reviews on it. The earlier model didn't have good reviews so I was worried this wouldn't be a good one either. However, I bought it because the price was right so I gave it a chance. While I have only had it a couple of days, I can already say I am happy with it. I had no problems hooking it up to the internet and it didn't even have to do an update or anything! The discs play beautifully and I got on Netflix right away. It's also very small and light weight so it is quite attractive.
The only negative thing I will say about it is that it comes Wi-fi ready, but it doesn't come with the wireless adaptor. So I had to go buy one. It cost about $57. Unlike the previous model review though, this one will work with a Netgear one...it doesn't have to be a Toshiba one. I also want to note that if you have an older tv this Blu-ray player will not work for you. I bought it for my bedroom tv which I bought in 2005. While the tv is HD, it is not HDMI and I was unable to connect this disc player to it because it didn't have an HDMI outlet. There also is no place to connect the wires from the player to the tv. The player is basically wireless except for the HDMI cable. I know I'm not technologically savvy, so maybe someone else would automatically have known that when reading the product description. What I ended up doing was moving the old blu-ray player I had (about 2 years old) to my bedroom tv, and using the Toshiba player with the living room tv (which is only a few months old). Everything worked out with the switch. Just thought someone who isn't really tech savvy like me might want to know about that.
If there are any changes with the player given some time then I will revisit this review. For now I will say that I am really happy!
