1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap. You almost get what you pay for., October 23, 2014

Received with a broken stand, it is terribly small and receives no better than an old UHF antenna which was lousy for digital. It would cost me as much as the thing is worth to send it back so I feel ripped off.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've had it for a while now., July 1, 2012
Excellent images and fairly easy learning curve. Shoot in RAW, use Photoshop or Lightroom and you will be a very happy camper with professional results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best strap I have ever owned..., February 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
and at this price, it better darned be just that.

Very comfortable, well built, function rich compared to typical straps and less expensive sling straps.

I often ride a motorcycle while making frequent stops to photograph and wanted something that would allow me to do this without the camera being in the way and flopping about. This strap seems to do just that. Like others, I feel I will add a strap from the base to a belt loop to secure it when not in an immediate use situation.

All in all, I am happy with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good enough., February 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works well, the description noting a carriage for AA batteries has been changed so a renewed star. The battery cover of my D5100 fits nicely in the insertion stem contrary to a previous reviewer's note and am happy with my purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Bang For the Buck, November 23, 2011
Before I did anything with this I updated the firmware. Hooking up to my Netflix account was much easier than expected. Played nicely with no freezes and the picture was excellent. Freezes in streaming are usually due to a slow Internet connection or source.

Load times are very fast. Much faster than the Panasonic BD that it replaced. I also appreciate the fact that I don't have to use an external memory source for streaming capabilities such as a USB thumb drive or a card.

I also appreciate the smaller footprint that this unit offers. It's nearly half the size of the typical BD players out there today.

All in all, I would highly recommend this player.

(Note: Later replies from me on this unit should be disregarded as they are base on the BDP BX58 by Sony which replaced this unit.) Sony BDP-BX58 Blu-ray Disc Player 3D Built-in Wireless

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware the 30' Range Claims With the Mouse, November 23, 2009
Bought this to go with a HTPC I had built and the PC is about ten feet away. The keyboard works fine, the mouse will not work unless it is within six feet of the PC. I am surprised because I have always had good luck with Logitech.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. Simply wow., November 23, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have had this for about a month now and am still impressed.

I searched and compared for a month before making this purchase and it's better than expected. I visited several brick and mortar stores and with the lighting and set ups they used there it was really pretty hard to tell all that much difference between the different models so I wen to several AV forums and read all the reviews I could and decided that this was the one. The only other Plasma I could find with better reviews and ratings was the Pioneer (which was rated only marginally better than the Panasonic and MUCH more expensive).

I had to tweak the color settings to my own preferences and then BANG! it was off to the games. Football never looked better. Just finished building an HTPC with BluRay and plugged in the new Star Trek BD and was very impressed with the color and judder free playback.

Call me a happy camper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleased with my purchase, February 27, 2009
I've had this for a week now and and am very pleased with my decision. This is replacing an Onkyo 5.1 with similar power ratings. The sound is very similar and the main differences are the HDMI inputs, an extra IR input and the RS232 input for future use.

One big plus is the OSD which makes programming a breeze on the HK compared to the Onkyo. The microphone assisted auto tune for the speakers is great as well.

I have had no "popping" or sync errors that others have described but I will second that the remote is a bit intimidating and after a week I am still learning cool tricks and shortcuts on the thing. I'm running a Magnavox Cable/DVR, a Pioneer DVD and an XBox through the HK with no problems. I'm using 7 JVC 145.5 speakers with a larger JVC center speaker and love the sound on all formats.

I'd recommend this to anyone looking for quality on a budget.
