NO FRILLS. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.
 
This was Wal-Mart's Black Friday sale where they went pretty quick. I did pick one up a couple of days ago and hooked it up at home. The Good: Picture is amazing. I had a Sony upconvert that worked great, but nothing compares to Blu-Ray. The sound is crisp and clean. Also, you can access the menu and turn certain special features on and off while the movie is playing. The Bad: It does not connect to the internet. (You can upgrade the firmware by burning a CD from the mfg website and load...

Gets the job done.
 
Parents picked this up for me as a Xmas gift. I too am a guy that just wants to watch Blu-Ray movies without having to sell a kidney. I don't need to download things from NetFlix. I don't need it to connect with YouTube or Pandora. I care little to nothing about director commentary. If you're looking for extras, this is not the way to go. This player simply gets the job done. I'm watching in 1080p-24 the same as a 200-400 dollar unit. As far as speed, it is a bit sluggish compared to most BDs. I...

for what it is, i give this player four stars for a solid value
 
you dont get netflix, you cant chat online while watching a movie, no dont get many of the current trendy wants people fuss about wanting. this is a very basic devise. a blu ray movie plays absolutely beautifully. last weekend, gothika was on sale at best buy for ten bux, so i finally bought my first blu ray disc. the picture was alike watching the dark knight in the imax. just flawless, textured and awing. by the way: it is connected to a 40 samsung lcd 1080p tv. the load time is frustr...

CHEAP
 
I bought this player on black friday.It works ok but has a very long pause during layer change that I really don't like. I will probably bring it back and get a panasonic or sony player. You get what you pay for.

Not worth it for DVD alone.
 
I picked this up for $78 on December 23 @ Wal Mart. I was looking for a regular DVD player for a new 720p LCD. This player was $78, a Sony DVD $68, and a Phillips DVD $50. I figured an extra $28 was a good enough deal.Took it home, hooked it up via HDMI and the regular DVD quality was grainy. It did not live up to my Xbox 360 nor the Phillips $50 DVD player I went back and picked up.I would recommend a better Blu-Ray player if you plan on playing mostly DVDs. I did not te...

Not Impressed
 
I got this cheap at Wal-Mart. I knew it wouldn't have any "special" features like Internet connection or screen-in-screen, but I expected the actual movies to play just as well as any other Blu-Ray player. I was wrong. The picture is maybe 5% better, and I can tell no difference with the sound. I do not have an HD TV, which seems to present a problem with this Blu-Ray player because, compared to other DVDs, the picture is squished like it was fullscreen, even though it was a widescreen DVD.

Low priced entry- inferior product.
 
Paid $78 for this at a box store, should have known better. There is a reason it was only $78... After 4 movies, I was fed up and returned it. Spend a little more for a better unit, this is not it.

Nice blu-ray player with no extras
 
I got this during Black Friday 2009 for $78. I hooked it up with an HDMI cable I got from amazon for less than $5 to a Panasonic 42" Diagonal Plasma HDTV 720P model# TH-42PX60U. The picture quality from this blu-ray player is simply awesome, just the same as my Samsung BDP-1500 player which is hooked up to my 1080 HDTV. No difference in quality. The loading time is a bit slower than my Samsung but only by a few seconds longer, so no big deal for me. This magnavox has no extra features like the ...

Can't beat it for the $$$
 
I bought this as an extra Blu-ray player for other rooms in the house. I've had a Sony PS3 hooked up to my Samsung 52" 240 Hz LCD in the living room. I connected this player to the same TV when I first got it and it's definitely top notch as far as picture quality. OK...it does load slower than the PS3 and it lacks some extra features on more expensive players, but for the $78 I paid, you can't beat it! On extra long movies (over 2 hrs. or so) you do get that momentary pause when it changes ...

Good starter Blu-Ray player
 
We received this as a gift this Christmas, and the kids were very excited to get it up and running. They finally got to watch the Blue-ray movie they got last Christmas!!!Positives:Out of the box and hooked up in under 5 minutes since there really isn't much of a way to mess up (if you can read the directions and plug in cables!) As for resolutions/etc, we only hooked it up to run into an "old fashioned" CRT TV - the flat panel might come next Christmas! After it was all set up...
