Most helpful reviews

Sunny, Eastcote Movie fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Speakers are in very good respone efficency also the speaker setup is very easy. DVD (720p) is very quickly upconvert within a minute once start playing it converts to the maximum (1080i or 1080p) whichever its possible that is excellent.
Excellent BD picture quality than any other Blue Ray players.
Bad points:
Still THD is 10% that could have been reduced less than that since the BD is uncompressed lossless sound quality. The Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) should be still reduced so that it can produce the optimum BD sound effect.
It should be upgrade to play the photo files those saved in the external hard drive such as Western Digital (WD) so that it would be easy to connect in one goal rather than loading camera chips every chip after another.
Composite input is missing so no VCR up conversion not like AV receivers.

Alan, Redditch Movie fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The sleek black design looks even better in the flesh.
The tallboy speakers can be split & wall mounted if you so wish.
The surround sound for an "all in the box" system is awesome.
A real bargain for the money.
Packed with loads of online features.
Bad points:
None so far although I haven`t got around to exploring all the features yet, but I`m sure that I wont find any.

Rodolfo, leeds, west yorkshire Movie fan

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
it does take the pain away for setting it up and you do not need to be an expert
Bad points:
manual is very poor and does not explains things, clearly, the option to put a USB stick does not work properly, it can see all music one day and next day it does not, unless you put an ipod, also you do not have much control over the usb music selection. also found that the surround system does not output good voice sound so its hard to listen speech,or when people are conversing

Good points:
i like the fact the speakers are small and i dont lose any sound quality, setting it up was a breeze even my wife said it must be simple as i did it without swearing . This is my 1st blu-ray 3d surround system and im very happy with the choice i made
Bad points:
This is not so much a bad point but, a smaller system would look nicer
