Summary: Sony has the corner on the market for high-capacity multi-disk Blu-Ray players--in fact I already have two Sony 400-disc DVD players and a Sony 400-disc CD player. The Blu-Ray version is a step backward, in my view. It is difficult to set up, particularly the network interface, and it takes forever to power-up and play a disk. Like a lot of Sony products, the operation seems deliberately user-unfriendly. All that said, it still delivers a great hi-def picture.
Summary: This is an excellent product, a must for anyone who has a large collection of DVD & Bluray's. It's a shame that Sony discontinued this product it almost seems like they want people to stream their media. The only problem with that is they don't have a streaming service. There is nothing else like it on the market for storing your media collection. Pros: Holds 400 discs. Run very quietly, much quieter than my older Sony DVD changer.
Summary: I love this DVD player. It made one of my big closets empty and added 4 boxes of DVD cases to my stuff in attic space. Finding the right movie is a piece of cake. The unit operation may look first unfriendly, but after a week or so you'll find a lot of short cuts that make easy to operate and navigate the movies. You will like it.
Summary: We got one of these to save space in our home as the DVD racks were getting on my nerves. Other than the player you need: - 1GB or better USB flash drive (around $10-15 usually). - Ethernet cable to connect to internet to download movie titles and cover art to machine. - HDMI cable highly recommended for better quality (but it does come with the red/white/yellow cables). Most importantly you will need an entertainment unit BIG enough to house this.
Summary: I bought this unit in March 2010, so far, this has been the worst experience I ever experienced. from day one, it could not read any blue-ray disc, after I talked to the Sony customer svc. I was asked to send it back to the Sony repair center at Laredo TX at my own expense, after more than one month, I contacted the repair center, I was told the optic drive(?
Summary: I read the reviews for this product before I purchased it and I was afraid when I got it home. Let me say that this unit does quite well for me. I have a collection of well over 3000 DVDs at least 65 of them blu ray. I bought this unit to store favorit movies, TV series and Blu-Ray. The bad: It is big, it is slow but it houses 400 DVDs. The search feature needs work but I can live with that. The good: I loaded up 3 TV series, 65+ Blu Ray and 120 or so DVDs.
Summary: I have been waiting to write a review for this changer until I had used it for a month or so. I read all of the reviews, good and bad and have to say that I am happy that I chose this product. If you are used to a playstation 3 you will be somewhat disappointed by the loading time. I followed other peoples examples on how to load the machine and it works well.
Summary: I waited a long time before getting my first Blu-Ray player. But like my DVD player and CD jukebox players, I wanted something that would not only perform well but add convenience to my video/audio system. I consider my CD and DVD collections minimal but both exceed 300 disks. I also create my own DVDs, documenting vacations in far off places, weddings, and fishing trips to die for. But since going HD with a new video camera, DVD quality just isn't enough for me anymore.
Summary: I bought this megachanger a couple of months after it's release and im still loving it. I recently found that it offers you the ability to further refine and adjust the picture quality on top of what your tv provides. While watching a movie hit the option button and go to "video", and you can max-out on your tv's capabilities. Battlestar Galactica and Stargate: Universe, on Blu-Ray, never looked so good!
Summary: The unit plays all DVDs very well with great picture and sound. The problems im my mind are with the firmware design and I have spent some time with Sony tech support on the phone on all of the following and they have no work arounds to suggest. 1: The first problem is if you have any of your DVDs that are not store bought movies.
