Suggest a good blue-ray home theater system

by damonsax / July 28, 2011 6:43 AM PDT

I know it's not the best or even that great of sound. I just want a 5.1 blue-ray home theater in a box system that can also do netflix, something compatable with the bluerays and lasts a long time and sounds pretty good for what it is.

If you don't have a blu ray player now - this unit has built in wifi as well as an ethernet port

Units lower in price than this one usually dpn't have built in wifi -- just ethernet port. You have to spend another $100 for a wifi dongle.
Remember -- at this price point -- the bulk of the price is for the blu ray player -- not the speakers.

Netflix.

I'm losing count of complaints about Netflix on such players. Be sure what you buy has some return policy if you find Netflix to not play well for you later on.

And it's not the maker that writes the Netflix app or breaks it. It's Netflix!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
