My old DVD player died after 7 years, in the middle of viewing the Farscape 15th anniversary boxed set. I needed a new player in a hurry.
My nearest 24 hour shopping option was Walmart. The employee immediately directed me to the oldest, most discounted model. I told him I wanted the latest thing that just came out and here we are.
I love the compact size, about half that of my old player and about a third the weight. Very easy to hook up. I like that is has its own internet connection so the software stays updated. I also like having one player for DVD and BluRay formats since my collection is mostly DVD.

Awesome entry 4k player
4k UHD players are still pretty expensive but this entry model does the trick. I currently have it hooked up to a 55" Philips 4k tv and it plays my UHDs, blurays and DVDs flawlessly. The upscaling of regular DVDs is really good. I was surprised how well the upscaling looked for these SD dvds. Blu rays look wonderful and UHD is flawless. I only have a soundbar and the audio sounds fine on it. I know this player does not support the higher end on the audio scale but for what I have, it works just fine. If you are looking for a cheap entry into the 4k uhd market, you can't go wrong with this!

Quit after 3 months of use
I bought this at Walmart about 2 months ago. I watched all 13 seasons of Grey's and a few other movies, and I started seeing glitches. After the last episode of G.A., it literally quit on me.

Remote hard to figure out.
The unit works great, but the remote's buttons are not in the common locations, nor do they use the common emblems. Took over 30 seconds just to find the open/close button.
