Good sound levels and easy to setup though you need to buy an additional lead to connect hen veiwing normal TV/sky. Makes normal DVD's look great and easy to view photos and movie files

Philips HTS3541/05

 

Good sound. Optical input from Virgin V+ box works well. Blu-ray picture quality great.

Back cables were 7 metres long. I needed longer. However, was easy to extend them. Was expecting the DVD 'upscaling' to be miraculous, but DVDs weren't that much better than playing on a DVD player. Having said that, it was still pretty good.

Great and Useless

 

I needed something more than just a blue-ray player and was unimpressed. I need something that has inputs.

Blue-ray, good surround, and nice looking

The wifi is weak and the apps list is weak as well. Also, my pet peve with this, is that I can't run audio to this from an outside source. I use my computer and this for my projector and whenever I use my computer the surround sound is useless.
