Pros: Small, Feature Rich, Good Looking, 3D, WiFi, Internet Apps, Mobile Device Controllable.

Cons: Remote sucks, No Internet Browser, A bit Noisy, ants like to make it a home! Did I say the remote sucks?

A few years ago an Installer talked me into moving my HT equipment to a remote closet. I debated doing this for a while, but finally gave in with the exception of the BD/DVD player being in the main room so I didn't have to leave the room to change disks. He then talked me into getting a wall mounted player, ok fine! At the time there were some options for wall mounted players, I had a Samsung originally. Unfortunately, the Samsung died a while back, and I was out shopping again for a wall mountable BD player, guess what, there were none!

I tried to pick the closest player I could to a wall mount unit, and then hope I could do the conversion myself. All I really required is that it could be mounted vertically.

The DMP-BBT01 fit the bill! I took the snap on plastic base and sanded the feet down a couple inches so it would mount parallel to the wall, then I just bolted the mount to the wall and snapped the unit in place, walla! Since it's made to allow vertical mounting this works well.

The DMP-BBT01 is much nicer than my old Samsung BDP-4600. First of all, if you like aesthetics, especially bling factor, this player has got it. They put mirrored sides all around the perimeter. Even the sliding door for the disk lockout is mirror! I had a chance to take this player all apart down to the basic components a couple times (Ant story below), it is built well in my inexperienced electrical view, there was no shoddy work, everything fit well and had a good finish inside and out.

Unfortunately, the unit is so attractive apparently some local ants took a liking to it! They must have came through a hold the installer drilled to route the HT equipment. Anyway, I found the infestation a bit late and had to take the entire unit apart to clean out the ants and their eggs, nasty! A night in the freezer inside a ziplock bag did the trick. After reassembly and a few prayers I powered the unit up and was pleasantly surprised to have it work perfectly, and ever since!

The only bad thing about the player, and it's terrible, is the remote. This is why I deducted one star from the overall rating. It has a trackpad style navigation system which is totaly unresponsive and has to be used within a few feet of the player. The only saving grace is that you can use a mobile device to control it. I use an Android phone and a free app to do everything with the player controller wise.

I project on a 106" screen from a 1080P projector (using 100ft of HDMI no less) and have no complaints about picture quality, it looks great to me with no noise or distortion visible to my untrained eye.

I love this little player! Hope you found this review entertaining, I wish I had more technical knowledge of these things to provide you with some better facts! I'm a happy customer.
