High Points
1080p/24 Blu-ray movies look very good
� The player will pass high-resolution audio over HDMI to a receiver
� It can play picture-in-picture bonus content, such as video commentaries and making-of featurettes
� The player's start-up, load and navigation speeds are quicker than most early-generation Blu-ray players, especially when handling BD-Java interactive menus

Low Points
� When set for 1080p/60 output, the BDP7200's processing is questionable, producing digital artifacts in some Blu-ray content�
� It lacks an Ethernet port, so you can't access Web features on Blu-ray discs
� There's no onboard high-resolution audio decoding, so you need a receiver with the proper decoders to enjoy high-resolution formats

Conclusion
The BDP7200 is a solid performer with both Blu-ray and DVD movies, but it's best mated with a TV that accepts 1080p/24 signals over HDMI and a receiver that has high-resolution audio decoding. Operation is generally quick and seamless. If you don't care that much about Web features on Blu-ray discs, the BDP7200 is worth a look.
