Why would you buy a 4 year old player no longer made by Sony when you could buy a 'state of the art' device ?

Summary: $5000 for a Bluray and DVD player changer? I could buy a car that much money! This thing must be for rich and famous only. No wonder it was discontinued by Sony because a regular person will not be able to afford it and the rich and famous don't have time to use this thing. Maybe if it cost around $200 I would consider buying it but due to some of the bad reviews here I might not. I used to have a brand new Sony 5 disc DVD changer. It works for awhile than it stop.
Summary: I DON'T OWN THIS PLAYER. But I DO own several Sony DVD carousels. They have proved a cost effective way to store and watch my massive DVD collection. $400, very reasonable. Four and a half stars. This review is really a comment about the insane price gouging going on at Sony. Are you f***ing s****ing me, four thousand dollars for a lousy blu ray player? I hope anyone considering buying this player can do the math: 1 bluray disc = 25gb. 40 discs = 1 terabyte.
Summary: The idea is great, poorly implemented. The DVD older version supported a plugged keyboard, the least I expected from this new version was a wired, even a wireless keyboard. Gracenote database is almost useless, half of my BDs and DVDs are not found, and without a keyboard, entering data is PAINFUL, beyond that, there is no way to upload data and images to Gracenote from my Mac (or PC I assume).
Summary: This is an outstanding unit with incredible attention to detail for use as an everyday disc storage...Unfortunately, several of these are needed for an extensive library, but the initial clutter and space reduction is immediately evident. If you take the time to catalog your discs either via the web or manually, it becomes a time saving device you wonder how in the world you ever got along without until now.
If this product is anything like their BDP-CX960, think carefully

Summary: I have owned the Sony BDP-CX960 400 Bluray disc player ($800 at the time i bought it) for about two years now. In this time it has broken twice, about 9-10 months apart, and stopped playing bluray discs even though the firmware was up to date both times. Their answer to the issue the second time was to sell me a refurbished unit as they did not have parts to repair mine. That kind of reply really makes one think about who they do business with.
Summary: If you are a home theater freek like me, you know the hassles of storing dvd/bd close to your player. This unit solves this problem while keeping disks clean,in order with pic of cover. The quality of play back is well ahead of any BD player I have seen. Buy one, You will love it!
