This review is from: Philips BDP2185/F7 Wi-Fi 3D Blu-Ray Disc Player
Pros: Seems to play most all my DVD and Blu-Ray collection.
Cons: Poor network subsystem. NetFlix and YouTube hang often, on wired or wireless. CPUs, XBox, and even Wii give better performance (and with regards to the Wii, that's saying a lot!).
Often hangs on shutdown.
We end up using the XBox for any streaming, which we do much more than watch DVDs/Blu-Rays. Should have just not bought this at all.
Would have expected this kind of performance from an off-brand, but not Philips.
Other Thoughts: Might just need a software update, but there hasn't been one available since we bought it half a year or so ago (at least according to the player).
