I will not buy a Toshiba product again
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I am so disgusted with this product I will not buy Toshiba again. Replaced once due to failed WIFI interface. The new box failed again within a week. The software is terrible, It locks up on the internet and sometimes the only recourse is to unplug the box from the outlet. I kept expecting an software update because it was so bad and I felt sure one would be rushed out, but no.

Good Specs but Works Awful
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

When I turned this on I checked for and applied the required update to the Firmware and the browser portal and there was nothing but problems from then. sound and picture are out of sync after about 15-20 minutes and the browser portal resets itself and cancels all your netflix and other details randomly as well as the whole unit being noisy and slow to work between disk and browser options. I am sending this one back to Amazon for a replacement but from the reviews here I will probably be returning the new one for a refund!

Quality?...Not these
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Bought 2 of these and have returned them both for replacements. That was not an issue but so far 1 of the replacements is having an issue and I would assume the 2nd is not far behind. Issues: drops the network connection, loading is super slow and while playing a DVD the sound becomes off with the picture. I will not but another and most likely will not even send these back for a replacement. Just buy something with better ratings.

Not-ready for Prime Time
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This product is designed very well. However, problems start as soon as you try to turn it on. First, the sensor doesn't respond to the remote. Second, the WIFI barely works as it should. Third, freezes most of the time. The interface is redundant with repeated app icons. Toshiba needs to recall this product or upgrade the software. Seems like it was rushed to the market.

1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I have had a problem from the very beginning trying to connect to my wireless router. I have connected once and have not been able to connect again. I have found no extensive instructions on this device. I bought my wife a laptop because it was rated high by Consumer Reports but this may be the last Toshiba product I own.

1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

When I first fired it up, it worked decent enough. I was pleasantly surprised that the responsiveness of the interface to the remote was much more rapid than another I had tried. It connected to the WiFi easily enough, but that's as far as I can honestly highlight the positives for this box. The interface is poorly designed, lacks clarity of purpose, and the functions of the remote are non-intuitive. The browser is even less so. Then the trouble started with the remote itself. It simply stopped working. I thought it was just a faulty remote until I discovered that the player itself simply did not want to respond to ANY remote (such as universals), much less its own. Not only that, it wouldn't even respond to the front buttons aside from power and eject. I returned it and got a Sony BDP-S3100, which is about the same entry-level as this one, and works a 100% better.

AWFUL
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

getting the wireless set up complete took forever and then kept dropping out, now I can not get it to work AT ALL. It is very slow to even just turn on! Very frustrating, what has happened to TOSHIBA, I trusted this brand in the past but now I am really annoyed that they would put out such a poor product. Wish I had read the reviews before I purchased.

Awesome BD Player!
5 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

So much features. Most of the CSPs like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora, VUDU that I often use. Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. Very sleek and slim design. Most important is price is very reasonable. Still working. Cloud is a little slow for my taste, but what do you expect from a low cost player?

The worst product I have ever purchased
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This is the last Toshiba product I will ever buy! It never worked out of the box. I can power it up but nothing else. Will not communicate with the remote. How can a company like Toshiba put out a piece of GARBAGE like this. I would advise anyone wishing to purchase electronics to avoid Toshiba like the plague. Judging from the rest of the posts, I am not alone.

Worst Toshiba product Ever!
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I purchased this blue ray player because I have a wonderful Toshiba 55'" TV, and Satellite lap top. This product will be returned. The WiFi connected with no problem, and the blue ray plays well. The other apps are unbelievably slow, and the open web browser is essentially useless, very slow to load, and once it's up, you really cant surf the web since you cant easily select the site you want to go to. A totally embarrassing product.

worst integrated BD player ever!
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I own this product for less a week and the wireless receiver never worked. there was no type of troubleshooting guide nothing in the box besides the product and the remote. item was sealed and the Miracast was ajoke, that never worked it keeps on saying please plug-in dongle. Apps dont work. Will be returning this back to best buy and getting me either a Panasonic or Samsung integrated blu-ray player. Which I should have done in the first place. I work in this field, fyi for the other 2 korean company that makes this kind of stuff.

Nothing but trouble
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

The unit worked well for about a week then I had the same problems as other reviewers. It would shut off in the middle of movies and Netflix. It connected with Internet about 1 of 5 attempts. Returned for replacement but expect more of same.

looks are decieving
2 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Ive had this player for over a month now. Very poor interface. Biggest problem I have is the player turns off on its own about 2-3 times while playing bluray/dvd. Tried doing an upgrade to the system to see if it would fix problem but system says no update available. Another problem is sound and image tend to skip. Words are not sync'd with actors voices. Internet app is useless and very hard to use. In general Toshiba makes great products but this one they BOTCHED completely.

terrible!
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I can't believe that Toshiba put something like it out there. For the longest time I have trusted Toshiba products because of their good quality (laptops, and TV). But this is truly the worse thing ever! DON'T INVEST A DOLLAR ON THIS BLU-RAY UNLESS YOU LIKE BEING FRUSTRATED

Don't bother
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Not ready for prime time. Apps are incomplete, firmware won't let you set your time and time zone. No more apps than displayed on the box. Totally not up to other manufactures products. I own 9 Toshiba products, 4 TV's 3 blu-ray players, 2 laptops. They all seem to be one upgrade from fixing simple things that buyers complain about. Not a buy. OBTW I have 5 EMMY's for outstanding technical achievement.

Powers off frequently
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Since day one this randomly powers off during the middle of a movie if its disc or usb doesn't matter. This product is extremely slow and doesn't seem like a good product for Toshiba.

Do not buy!
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I had received this player as a gift and for the first few days it was perfect. However, shortly afterwards the player would no longer connect to my wifi network. I tried EVERYTHING! Toshiba's forums are a joke and the website provides no troubleshooting outside of basic steps which are no help. Brought the first player back and got a replacement and the same thing happened. Player worked perfectly and then just stopped connecting to the network. I consider myself pretty tech savvy and know my way around a network. If you are going to buy a media enabled player, the media should work! Save yourself the time and patience, buy a basic blu-ray player and follow it up with a Roku. I wish I would have done that to begin with. Never again buying Toshiba.

Poor Password Interface and e-Portal Navigation
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

I was really trying to like this product. The DVD player worked well and I got it connected to my wireless network quite quickly. I bought it to have a wireless interface between TV and internet with the DVD Player being a nice extra. The marketing on the box and on Toshiba's website looked like this was the product I had been hoping for. Not true. While using the Portal, I found the "return" button does not work A LOT of the time requiring one to turn off the device and start over. A major show stopper for me is that several of the password interfaces do not have the ability to use upper case (e.g., Picasa Web Albums) and I am not willing to change passwords/update other devices to work around this. The assistors insist there is an up arrow for upper case but that was true on only one app that I looked at. I do not yet have a hulu or Netflix account so I was not able to test the video streaming.

Poor performance
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

Looks good on the box and from the outside but functions very poorly in every aspect. Very slow going through apps and always have to start over when browsing the Internet which takes several minutes to load. I initially used the wireless Internet feature but had to use a Ethernet cord and it was still poor. No flash or media function so you won't be able to view or use most websites. Toshiba should start over and do it right if they are going to sell a product. Very poor quality unit.

Wireless Connection Almost Impossible
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

First getting the wireless set up complete took forever and then kept dropping out. (I have plenty of bandwidth and no issues with any other devices). Secondly, it is slow to load a disk and makes a terrible sound while it tries to read the disk. Third, trying to use the instructions provided or on the settings screen - HA! Unless you really know what you are doing don't buy this product.

Bad Product
1 Star Review   ToshibaDirect.com   

This is a "Blue-Ray Player", so starting with that. The look of the box is nice, small and sleek. That is the only good thing about this box. Takes several seconds to load and start-up, and when you play a DVD, it makes a horrendous noise the whole time the disc is spinning. With minimal buttons on the unit, use of the control is mandatory. Problem is that the IR control must be pointed dead onto the sensor, or it will not respond. Usually, controls have a range where you dont have to be perfectly on the sensor. Now, onto the "media box" aspect of this unit. The interface is horrible, starting you off on a bland blue screen where you can scroll through options ranging from Settings / Music / DVD / Apps Section. If you want to continue onto the Apps section, be ready for a 30 to 90sec wait. In a matter of using the unit for an hour, it updated 3 times, and that was another 2min wait. Loading an app like netflix takes another minute. If you exit an app, reloading the "home page" , same idea. Internet speed has nothing to do with the lag time, as I have an XBOX and Smart TV running on the same Wifi with 1/8 the lag. Will not talk about the internet explorer, it is embarrassing trying to use it. Wifi speeds are terrible, so you can imagine the problems using Youtube or downloading movies. Did not get to try the networking options, as the media box aspect of the unit is so disappointing. It is more practical buying a Blue-Ray player and a separate media box that performs extremely better.
