Reluctantly : Stay away.
 
I am a Yamaha brand loyalist, with multiple Yamaha musical instruments and stereo components. This player however is prone to erratic behavior, freezes and unresponsiveness. Netflix streaming inexplicably failed after 2 days, returning repeatedly to the home screen without explanation. Two calls to tech support failed to diagnose or correct the problem, and the technicians acknowledged it must be a problem with the unit. Even DVD/CD playback is unpredictable. I returned one to be certain the pro...

What a Surprise
 
This was a total surprise. The picture quality was superb, even 3D!. I tested this unit with a Sony 40" backlit LED and also a Samsung 40" 3D Backlit LED and there was no appreciable difference. (The newer Samsung was a lot sharper with better contrast and color).I also have an Oppo BDP 93 Blu Ray player ($700+) and I was amazed that this unit was so close in quality.I only have one criticism and that is with some of the apps, particularly Netflix, work OK but don't displ...

Consider my two-star rating to be generous
 
Being an avid Yamaha fan, I deliberately ignored the negative reviews since most of the deficiency seemed to be software related which can be addressed via software upgrade. So I bought the machine and waited a month for it to be shipped. Although a nicely looking piece of equipment, it is very difficult to work with. Even powering up and down is a challenge! I quickly upgraded the firmware to the 1.52, hoping that the problems will "magically" go away. Alas, all the issues continued to exi...

Dissapointed but Optimistic
 
I also have been an avid Yamaha fan for 20 years. I purchsed this product and have it running through my Yamaha RX-V573 Receiver which I am impressed with. I have it plugged into the receiver via HDMI cable and everything looks gorgeous i.e (blu-ray, streaming video, netflix). The main issue I have is the freezing problem. This player will just freeze at Hello or at any point and it is very inconsistant. I can have it working for a few days and then all the sudden it just freezes. And like...

Too bad
 
When I got this I was hoping for a no nonsense play anything player. Turns out that some regions cannot be played using this player which pissed me off considering the price tag. :(

If the shoe fits. DO NOT BUY this product!!!
 
I purchased this item before reading the reviews. I noticed that all the reviews were bad, even on other websites. I thought maybe people where over reacting to the products capabilities, but I was wrong. I received the player yesterday and hooked it up but didn't use it until that night. When I turned it on the settings menu came up and the grammar was off and words were misspelled. This was a little disturbing but no big deal. I inserted a blueray disc and the player locked up. I had to...

Defective straight out of the box
 
I have owned many Yamaha products through the years and looked forward to another great product from them. However that was not to be. From the very first time I powered up this system it would not play Blu-ray disc - simply locked up after the initial read - I tried several disc but none would play - Updated to the latest firmware - called Yamaha customer support - nothing worked - after reading several other reviews with the same issue I decided to return this item and purchase a Sony BDP-S75...

Bad Software
 
I bought this player because it had all the features I desired. I am sad to say, it does not live up to the description. Let's start with the major problem; I'm not certain that Yamaha knows how to write software. In all modern DVD/BD players, everything you do from viewing discs to accessing your network is software driven. This Yamaha player works wonderfully...for a few days. After that, it becomes sluggish and will eventually start skipping in films or simply lock up. T...
