Summary: I'm satisfied with this player. I consider it good value for the money. The Hulu app would be nice, but it does have a slew of other apps, including Netflix. I occasionally listen to Super Audio CDs, so that feature is much appreciated.
Pros: fast start/energy saving options, internet apps, compact design, SACD support
Cons: no Hulu app, can't skip to a specific point by entering hh:mm:ss
Bought specifically for similar setup as my PS3 for NETLFIX

Summary: I bought this specifically to replace using my PS3 watching netflix. Manufacturer said YEAH it is a similar interface. Well, they are wrong, and not only are they wrong, but you don't get surround watching netflx.
Sony is still good but others have equalled or surpassed Sony.

Summary: Good product-but Network access to the internet is provided through either hardwired or WiFi (IF YOU PURCHASE THE REQUISITE SONY USB WiFi ADAPTER). I tried plugging a Belkin USB WiFi adapter into the back port, but the player would not recognize it. Forget about it.
Summary: I bought this because I have a home theater video display that does not have an HDMI input. All of the new Blu-Ray players made available for sale after January 2011 will output over component video at a maximum resolution of 480i.
Summary: This is a great BluRay Player, very simple and small. The best feature is the online capabilities it has like Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, etc, which make it awesome for days when you don't have a disc to watch (most days for us).
Summary: So the player comes with Parental Control to lock out any content that may be unsuitable for children. There are lots of options on this, from turning things off all the way to assigning age levels for content. It works great except that none of it applies to YouTube.
Summary: The product arrived one week later I DO NOT RECOMMEND Great Buy Wholesale, they have a really bad costumer service, beware of the returns policy. About the product we just used once and now is not working, need to send the item to Sony.
Summary: I hate doing this especially to Sony which is normally a great brand. This disc player was wonderful for playing all kinds of discs. It was not until recently I ran into problems with playing newer movies like "Contraband". It tells me unsupported format.
