Customer Reviews of Sylvania NB501SL9 - Blu Ray DVD Player
You would have to be over critical to not love thi1/14/2009
I ordered online and Buy.Com delivered as they always have with anything that I have ordered. Buy.Com has it together Price, Quality Product and Delivery. I had looked at reviews and ratings for this product before purchasing. So far it's operated as reviews have described. The picture, sound, and ease of operation is excellent. So far the only draw back this unit has and it's why I only gave it a 4 rating in performance is as described in some of the reviews, it's slow react time from remote to unit execution.
BluRay is great1/14/2009
Very nice player. $169.00 well spent, very happy.
Other brands get most of the attention, but this Sylvania Blue Ray is tops! Excellent performance. Great value. However, it would have been nice if it had a Firmware capability to keep it updated as technology continues to advance.
