PRODUCT PICTORIAL & WALKTHROUGH
Let's take a virtual walk around this product.
Starting with the front panel, as said earlier, there is nothing really to point out other than the disc tray door which is on the left side of the front panel. On top of the player, when the unit is powered up an operating, the power, eject, play/pause and stop button will illuminate and are touch sensitive. Tray access times are in the 3-5 second range and depends whether or not if you are playing a movie or not which is close to have the time seen on previous generations. Load times will be covered in the testing section of the review in a couple pages but to give you a teaser, they are drastically improved.
There is an integrated USB drive jack to allow you to listen to music, watch videos and look at photos at your leisure. Also, it is a handy port to upgrade the player's firmware when an update comes available. Remember to check often. The updates in most cases only make your player better.
The center mounted blue front display shows all relevant information such as the operation, the media being played, the resolution, whether WIFI is enabled and the current movie playback time. The brightness can be changed to suit your particular viewing needs.
Other than than, there is nothing else to cover until we reach the back where you will see a hard wired power cable and the main audio/video connection panel.
Taking a closer look at the rear connection panel, the overall layout is very simple and easy to understand. Although the video connection are not really lacking and have a composite, component and HDMI interface, the audio connections are excellent with an optical output and full analog 7.1 connection support. Missing was the component digital audio jack I do like to use when it is available. In addition, there is a LAN port if you want to take advantage of a your wired network, but with WIFI built in, this in most cases will not be taken advantage of.
Other than that, there isn't much else to point out.
