Bought 2 of these during black friday at Wal-mart 2 years ago, so for the price I was excited. It works well enough and sounds MUCH better than the standard TV, but see my list of gripes:

1. Wi-fi signal is so weak that I am not able to use it to connect to Netflix or anything else. However, the Wii sitting right next to it is able to connect to our wi-fi signal, as well as my computer and phone.

2. The speaker length for the center speaker is extremely short and barely makes it out the back of my entertainment center on to the top in front of the TV.

3. The remote lag time is very frustrating, so if you have anxiety it will send you through the roof. There is an audio source button on the remote that you push to shuffle through the different outputs (coax, aux and so forth) and I have to push the button 2 or 3 times before it moves onto the next.

4. Unless I'm not seeing it there is no menu button to take you straight to the menu of a DVD. I've tried Top Menu but it restarts the DVD over again. So I have to skip through the previews when a DVD allows me too.

5. Only 1 HDMI port, so I have to hook up my cable box to it with the old fashion 3 prong cables to get the sound to travel since I have the only HDMI cord running from this DVD player to my TV.

6. Did I already say Wi-Fi?!?!?!? Since I do not have a 3D TV it basically makes this unit obsolete with the exception og the speakers.

Pros:
1. 3D playback (though I have not been able to test it without a 3D TV

3. DVD playback has been great

2. Volume for me is fine. I have adjusted it in the settings panel, but I'm also not in a huge home. This would not be adequate for a larger home.

The sound quality is not very good, has to much distortion. To watch a movie i have to turn the volume all the way up. Listening to music isn't much better, not enough power.

I purchased this to go along with my new Vizio 47" 3D TV. It was on sale for $129 before Christmas which is more reasonable than the current $165 price. This unit does what is says it will do fine but nothing more. It has a cheap feel to it. The on screen display is very basic augmented by a small rolling led display on the unit for status. Smart Wi-Fi apps few and basic.

Speakers are hard wired at the speaker, have very short cables especially for the rear speakers and have a plug on the end of the very thin/cheap speaker wire to attach to the unit. To extend the length of the speaker I had to cut the wire in the middle - put new wire in and make two splices instead of one. Only other alternative was to order plugs for one splice OR plugs and opening speakers and replace the entire wire.

The units description or its online manual did not specify IF the unit supported two way audio via the HDMI cable. I purchased a new HDMI cable that supported this function BUT the Philips unit does NOT support this. So to get 5.1 surround sound when watching a show on cable or Wi-Fi via the TV I bought an optical audio cable.

That works fine when watching the TV from cable, etc. The Philips is switched to that input and plays fine. BUT when watching a DVD sound from the TV and the Philips are not in sync and produces a reverb or echo effect. I have to turn off the sound on the TV.

Sound is fair to good but you don't get the full effect I've heard with better systems. At the $129 I paid for it I might consider buying it again to stay in budget (I don't use it that much). At the current $165 I would look elsewhere for a better deal.

I purchased this knowing full-well it was a starter system, but being willing to accept them beforehand because of my limited budget. I needed something I could route the audio of my satellite box, Wii, and an mp3 player through. It fits the bill nicely. It took a little bit of searching to find a picture or info of the connections on the back, but it has HDMI (ARC) out, optical input, digital coaxial input, RCA inputs, and then the mp3 or iPod plug on the front. That said, I found something that fits those needs and does so nicely.

Based on other reviews of this product I assumed I would get great audio all the way around. I find I get fantastic 5.1 audio for Bluray and DVD's, as well as TV (Dish Network), and Wii, but when it comes to music, I can't get it to sound nice and clean at all. I replaced a 13 year old Philips Receiver that didn't have some of the digital audio in/out that I wanted, but those speakers sounded FAR better than these for music. Again, DVD/Bluray/TV/Wii sound great. Streaming music does not. I'm not an audiophile, but am a bit picky for music in particular. The build-in EQ adjustments simply can't get rid of tinny trebble, or muddy mids. I usually stream Pandora and Spotify through my phone and had no problems AT ALL with my old receiver and speakers, which were at a similar price point to this new system. The difference between 13+ year old technology and today's technololgy should've been a step UP, not DOWN. I recognize some new speakers may make a difference, but if I'm going to do that, I might as well just sell the whole system and buy something completely different.

Other issues:

1) when powering the system on, it takes between 5-10 seconds for it to be up and running and audio to be broadcast.
