I bought this Blu-Ray player at Walmart the other day. I really like the simple control buttons on the front, eject and power. The other controls are found on the small yet simple remote, which is powered by a single triple A battery. The front USB port is for connecting an external hard drive or USB flash drive. Another thing I like about this is the simple connection jacks on the back, power and HDMI. Very straightforward compared to the multiple jacks found on the back of other units.
When connected to your HDTV and powered up, I find the on screen display to be simple to understand. This player can play Blu-Ray discs, DVD discs, compact audio discs, MP3 discs, and photo discs. The audio pumped out of this unit is exceptional. In comparison to DVD players, this player has better stereo and surround separation with far more amplification. Unlike most DVD players which need to have the audio signal transmitted to a Dolby and/or DTS receiver, this player does not require that.
The video quality is much cleaner and higher resolution than a DVD player. The video output is exceptional when playing either a DVD or Blu-Ray Disc.
If you want a simple and straightforward disc player, this is it.
