Summary: I have owned two of these. When the first one broke, I made the mistake of buying a second one. I just stopped working. I am also on my 3rd remote. The remote from the second one died. The old remote worked with it, but then it died. I bought a new remote. It still works.
Summary: The only reason it has even 1 star is becaise it was the lowest i could post. After i finally recieved the blu ray player, it had food and animal hair all over it. Then it will not load any movies. Horriable,misleading I do not recommend.
Summary: I would recommend this Blu-ray player to anybody who wants a decent Blu-ray experience for a cheap price. It does take the player a moment to load a movie, but it's really not that bad. It also makes some loud loading noises, but other than that, I love it.
Summary: ...after all, it works really well, when it works. The problem is that for some reason it will insist that I have no Internet, when in fact I do. It's direct wired to my modem so wifi isn't the problem. There's nothing to do but unplug it to do a cold boot.
Summary: I bought this for my parents last year for Christmas. Unfortunately, they didn't try to use it till the other day. The Blu-ray player worked for about 15 minutes and now won't play Blu-Ray's at all. To get it fixed will cost the price of a new one. That is the last time I buy a Sony Product.
Summary: I bought this product at bestbuy. It works great for the price if you do not use it via wifi. It does have a disclaimer on the box that states at least 2.5 Mbps recommended (10 Mbps for HD). The range away from my wifi appears to affect this device. Eventhough it connect it doesn't perform well.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I have three of these units. I use them for streaming content from Hulu, Netflix and Amazon as well as occasionally watch a DVD/Blue Ray. It is a cheap blue ray player and works well for that.
After upgrading firmware, it does not recognize Blu-ray and DVD discs
Dead Cow, Amazon

Summary: After installing a Sony-pushed upgrade of firmware, my unit now does not recognize any discs. I've spent hours with customer service, resetting the unit, tweaking settings, and it still doesn't work. I have become accustomed to Apple's upgrades on Mac, iPhone, and iPad working without a hitch.
