Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not An Expert but Another Wi-Fi Complaint
Only 7 reviews of this so maybe there are satisfied users out there, but from the start my husband and I have found this device difficult to set up, and once that was figured out, frustratingly inconsistent with its ability to stay connected to Wi-Fi. More times than not it will not maintain connection between uses and we have to re-program the router code to get it to work. However, once this is done, it works well enough, has always connected with Netflix. Perhaps the heat issue is our problem as well--hadn't thought of that before I read these reviews. But ours is not in a stack and has plenty of air all around it. Not sure if we will return it.

I gave this player an extra star in performance (2) because it DOES play movies, mostly, though about every third movie it will simply power off at some random point. And though it will sign into Netflix, it's unable to play a movie, even after the firmware updates (have done 2 now since we bought it). Haven't noticed the heat issue, as we have it by itself on shelf in front of the TV. Also doesn't seem to be able to play WMVs on a flash drive, though it recognizes them as video files (Message reads "unable to play this file type). Will likely not buy another Toshiba player, or at very least will read the reviews first next time!

I just setup this player today and have it attached to a toshiba tv. Internet setup was fairly easy and the firmware updated without issue. Getting it to play with my network was a different matter though. I have a WD Live media player on another tv with my media content stored on a usb drive. I also have a Toshiba Windows 7 laptop... the player finds the laptop share but errors when it attempts to connect. There's no settings and I can't even provide it with the network address to find my media.

I am so disappointed in this product. I wish I had read these reviews before I purchased the blu-ray, but I thought Toshiba was a reliable name and regrettably my retailer would not take it back either. The player freezes up repeatably and turns off. Maybe every 20 miinutes or so. Then I have to power up again. There should be a recall of this BDX3300. My sister and I bought the same model. Hers does the same thing. I would rate it a zero if I could. I want my money back!!!!

The several Toshiba BR players have ALL had the same problem. They are VERY sensitive to heat. They must be absolutely alone and not part of any equipment stack or in a cabinet. Even the slightest heat will result in quirky crazy behavior. If it does start to overheat the unit must be unplugged from power and TV. Once cooled the unit needs to be reset. I had a player in my bedroom but needed to keep it on my bathroom sink in order to play.

Wish I had read some reviews before I bought it... I have had the player for several months now and have only been able to get it to connect to the internet once and it only last for about 4 days. I have not been able to get it to connect since! I have let it sit for months and I finally decided to give it a shot again... STILL SAYS CONNECTION FAILED!

WiFi does not connect to my network. The primary reason I wanted a wireless blu ray player. I enter my network ssid, and password, and the only response is "network failed". I can connect via ethernet cable for d/l the latest updates, but defeats the purpose of going wireless. Wish I had searched for reviews prior to purchasing. I USED to trust the Toshiba name, not anymore

My daughter who is struggling financially was so proud to have given me this for Christmas. I had WIFI for about 1 month and then it was gone. I have tried and had IT people try to get it connected to my wifi, to no avail. I would never buy any Toshiba product again. So, I have a fairly expensive dvd player.
