Very disappointed. temperamental machine. shuts off on its own and sometimes you can't turn it off. skips on the remote. sound on Netflix must be adjusted as it won't have any sound if set to Dolby. ( default) sketchy wireless connection. cheap feeling remote with no light response on machine at click. would not recommend. would be happier to do a Mexican hat dance on this machine rather than use it.
Simple user interface
Philips BDP5506 is an excellent Blu-ray player with built in Wi-Fi, simple user interface, 3D compatibility and some high quality online streaming media services like Netflix, Pandora and Vudu. Its MediaConnect screencasting feature enables you to stream the screen of a notebook directly to BDP5506. With this device, you can enjoy the latest in Blu-ray technology, from wireless access to 3D playback to video on social networking and Demand favorites.
Disappointing wi-fi & netflix support
This review addresses only the wi-fi & netflix functionality of this player. I think that's fair since you shouldn't be considering it unless you are specifically interested in those features. If you aren't, there's a wide variety of capable, non-networked blu-ray players that are much less expensive.
First off, the wireless card in this player didn't impress me.
Not worth the money
I purchased this item in after reading some quite good reviews. Also this particular model seemed to have just what I wanted.....good picture, fast speed, wi-fi and 3D. Well, connecting to Netflix is a joke. Try watching a movie that stops to buffer every 5 minutes..NIGHTMARE. I called Philips support who blamed Netflix and my internet connection speed.
