Ste, Durham Film lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
A nice small Blu-ray player perfect if you have limited space and having the slot loading CD draw is a nice addition.
Bad points:
Very slow to boot up and get playing a movie, we have a launch edition PS3 which is much faster. If your looking for a Blu-ray player and don't mind spending the extra money get a PS3.
