If you own a Blu-ray player (and who doesn't on AVS?), here's your chance to tell the world how much you enjoy it—or not—and possibly win one of three Amazon gift cards.
First prize is $300, second and third prizes are $100 each!
To enter, all you have to do is post a review of your Blu-ray player, and post a link to your review in this thread. Three of the reviews will be selected at random as the winners after verifying their eligibility.
What makes a review eligible?
1) The review must be submitted between May 31 and June 14, 2013, on a product within the AVS Blu-ray player category;
2) The review must contain a title, overall rating stars, review-detail ratings, pros, cons, and a minimum 100-word body;
3) The review must be new, original work and not republished, in whole or in part, from another location on AVS Forum or elsewhere on the Internet;
4) AVS Forum reserves the right to disqualify reviews of very low quality at our discretion. Be thorough and helpful to your readers, and use good punctuation, spelling, and grammar.
Never written a review on AVS Forum before? It's easy! Click here for a tutorial. To summarize, first go to the Blu-ray player product page and click on "Add Item" in the upper right. Next, enter the make and model number of your player into the search box, then click on the product in the resulting list. Finally, click on "Write a Review" in the upper right of that product's page, and input your review. It doesn't matter if someone else has already reviewed the same player; we love multiple perspectives!
The most important things to cover in the main body are:
1) Features—Does it provide 3D and/or streaming capabilities? Which features are useful and which are not?
2) Setup—How did you connect it to your system, directly to the display or to an AVR or pre/pro? How easy is it to set the correct aspect ratio?
3) User Interface—Are the remote and menu system well designed? Are they easy or difficult to use?
4) Performance—How quickly does the player boot up, how quickly do Blu-rays load and start to play, how good does the image look, how good does the audio sound, how well does it upscale DVDs? Cite examples from content you've watched.
So what are you waiting for? Fire up your Blu-ray player and take a critical look, then submit your review and post a link to it in this thread for a chance to win a shopping spree on Amazon!
