4 out of 5 eggsException To The Rule

Pros: I just want to add my experience with this unit that I have had for more than 2 years. I bought it at Best Buy on a Thanksgiving sale for $37 plus tax back in November of 2011. I couldn't believe how cheap it was considering it was made by Toshiba. I then started reading reviews by owners on several websites about how their players and remotes started malfunctioning and was expecting the worst, but so far it still works.

True, I have had the unit freeze a few times, but I have always been able to solve that by unplugging and plugging it back on from the electrical outlet. Contrary to the comments I have read, my remote still works and I have used it to watch many Blu Ray and regular DVD's(including marathon multi season TV series), mostly without a hitch except for the occasional freeze. Ever since I downloaded the software updates from Toshiba, I haven't had any issues with freezing either.

I was a little bit surprised with the need to buy a Toshiba adapter(costing more than what I have paid for the device) to access the wifi capability of this unit in the very beginning, but I had an extra LAN wired outlet near the unit, so I decided to use that instead and plugged it and was able to use the BD live feature after also connecting an extra flash drive to serve as its memory device.

As for the lagging complaints I have heard about when accessing apps like Netflix, etc., I haven't really used those, as I don't subscribe to those services, except for the Pandora audio service and if I need to I can always use my Xbox 360 or my PC to stream those videos. So I can't really comment on those.

Considering what I paid for this Blu Ray player($37) and how pleased I was by the clarity of the videos I have seen in Blu Ray as well as the upconverted DVD's(including TV series marathons), I am quite satisfied with its(both player and remote) performance since I bought it.

Having said all that, considering how many complaints I have read, given a choice, I probably will buy a more expensive unit(with an integrated Wifi capability) to avoid any hassles in the future. I just hope my unit keeps on going for awhile longer, at least until next Thanksgiving.

Cons: The need for a dedicated Toshiba Wifi adapter which cost more than the unit itself was a nonstarter. Occasional freezing which I was alleviate by unplugging and plugging it back on to the electrical outlet. Single HDMI port which I use to connect it to my HDTV. Lack of non digital ports, which I could have used to connect the device to my somewhat antiquated audiovisual receiver and home theater system.

Other Thoughts: I am not sure why newegg is offering this unit for $119 considering its lack of features compared to other units in that price range, but considering how many negative reviews it had from other owners, even I would consider it buying it again if given the chance. Nevertheless, based just on my personal experience with this one unit, I consider it a worthwhile buy for what I paid for it in 2011($37).

1 out of 5 eggsFinally had to ditch it...

Pros: Vivid, easy to navigate GUI.

Cons: Bought it for its streaming video features (Netflix, Hulu Plus, etc.). Near to the end of our use of this box (we've owned and used it for a bit less than two years), all streming video would break up, and the box would completely freeze, requiring that it be unplugged from power to be made usable again.

Other Thoughts: Nice GUI. Tracks viewing habits and suggests other programming, quite nicely (I'm old and crippled, and I can't worry about the privacy angles, anymore.). We switched to a Toshiba BDX2400KU, with the hope that things would improve...read that review.

1 out of 5 eggschineese junk

Pros: it WAS a blu-ray player that worked

Cons: Every now and then before today it wouldn't play a disc. Bought it 1/30/2012...died today 4/2/2013. Shouldn't be surprised with just a 90 day warranty.

Other Thoughts: enough said.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: thin, lt. weight

Cons: Very disappointed in this 'Toshiba' device...which I have considered high quality in the past. The disc loading process is extremely loud, and after the 4th month it would not turn on with the buttons or remote. Every time, I have to unplug & re-plug the device in the outlet to get it to turn on. Also, the picture/play 'freezes' often. Other menu features are just as frustrating. Please don't buy this model. It was a really great low price when I bought it. But I guess you get what you pay for. Never again though.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Worked fine for a few weeks. Stopped working just after the 30 day return period. Makes a terrific door stop!

Cons: After about five or six weeks, you could get audio, but no picture or video. I did extensive troubleshooting - just about everything you can imagine. Video is just plain gone. A lot of web searching on the issue indicated that many, many people have had the same experience I did with this Blu-ray player.

Other Thoughts: Do not waste your money on this.

1 out of 5 eggsScam

Pros: It will play Blu rays and, if connected to the internet, it will play Netflix and the other services as well.

Cons: It is, quite frankly, Garbage. It processor and on board memory are excruciatingly slow, its user interface is atrocious and, after 6 months, refused to open its disc tray. Upon downloading the software date, the entire thing refused to turn on. coupled with negligible product support, Toshiba is now firmly in my black books.

Other Thoughts: It was made to such a low standard as to be rated a cash grab, rather than a serious piece of consumer goods. The best you can hope for is sporadic use before it completely fails.

2 out of 5 eggsNope...

Pros: It still works, to some degree...

Cons: I bought it 8+ months ago. I now have to unplug it daily, in order to keep it working.

Other Thoughts: I'll have to track down Toshiba I guess, in order to try to get some warranty service...grumble...grumble...

1 out of 5 eggsIR receiver died

Pros: Features, HDMI, compact size

Cons: IR receiver died. Replaced remote with factory/OEM model but made no difference. Disassembled and found the IR receiver to have been mounted poorly, and will only receive signals if the remote (with fresh Duracells, with verified voltage) is held within 2 inches and at a 45-degree angle from above. Clearly defective IR receiver.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for, I suppose.

1 out of 5 eggsThank goodness it's discontinued

Pros: I got 7 1/2 months use out of it.

Cons: Remote died before 8 months were up, which renders the unit inoperable. (You have to be able to press OK to select Play, etc. in menu.)

The Toshiba solution is to buy a new remote. Seems logical, but I tried a universal remote - nothing. I suspect that the sensor on the unit has burned out and that getting a new remote will put more money in the company's pockets.

Other Thoughts: If you want to read something shocking, go to the company's website and look at the customer reviews there for this unit. Absolutely terrible! I wish I had seen them last January.

1 out of 5 eggsDon"t Bother

Pros: It plays Bluray.

Cons: Requires a special Toshiba wireless adapter WLM-10NB1 to use wireless. If you are useing wireless you con not access BD Live as this requires the use of a thumb drive in the only USB port. The file types it will play are VERY limited. Forget Divx, windows media files with DRM, CD-Rom, CD-I, DVD-ram, VSD, DVD-Audio, HD-DVD, Video CD, Blu-ray Disc/DVD containing DivX files, multi session disc, and Multi border disc just to name a few. More listed in the owners guide.

Other Thoughts: The wireless adapter that works cost $49.99 at the Toshiba site and the only way to find it is to look for that model. This is the ONLY model adapter that works according to Toshiba. That is more than the player. Save you money and spend less by buying a player with everything built in.
