Cost lot of money for me... also lots of work needs to be done by SONY.

Summary: I will keep it short. I bought this from Amazon... paid lot of money for it. Also I have to do lot of work. This is a dead drop slow system. So annoying and frustrating..... very sluggish. I don't want to return it... as I have Thousand odd Blu-Rays, therefore I am going to keep it as a storage. Very very very very slow and loading Discs are not fun. Lot of manual work. SONY should do lots of work on it and should be a shame to price it as it is.
Summary: The Blu-Ray player was very easy to setup. I simply connected it to my home network and loaded discs. The player has an update it needs initially and then it simply goes to Gracenote and identifies the discs once they are selected from the list. I only have one not-so-good thing to say about my experience with this machine and that is Gracenote does not always "properly" identify the dvd's and I have had to manually add information on very few occasions, otherwise this...
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.
Highly disapointed with this product AND Sony's customer service

Summary: I have owned the Sony BDP-CX960 400 Bluray disc player for about two years now. Up until the first failure, I was happy with it. But no more. At 9 months from purchase the unit stopped playing bluray discs. DVDs still worked. As it was still under warranty, I sent it in to the Laredo TX Service Center. When it came back, it worked again for about another 9-10 months before it again stopped playing bluray discs.
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 got this item while it was still available for a great price. Soon after Sony took it out of the market, I assume it is due to its new upgraded version. As of the date of this review Sony still hasn't released a new replacement product. In my opinion this product is great for what it is and for its price. For those of us who have a large library of blu-ray discs laying inside boxes, this unit allows us to organize and catalog them easily.
Love it...but network connection difficult and watch out for load all discs

Summary: This is a great product...has worked great for over 2 years. The only problem is setting up the Network connection is a pain. In case others have a similar problem, here is how I solved it. I use a Cisco WET610N wireless bridge. Just got a new FIOS router so had to reinstall. After many failed attempts (using DHCP setting) and wondering if my bridge was not set up right, I connected it to my Panasonic bluray player and it connected automatically (using DHCP setting)...
Summary: I think this is one of the best blu-ray players that was on the market before Sony discontinued it. I will say that it is a bit slow when it comes to loading the disc. I just love the fact that I can load 400 disc in and don't have to worry about getting up and changing a disc out for another one. It is a great player to have if you have any tv shows or movie collections on dvd or blu-ray. I think this is a must have if you have a home theater.
Summary: This unit is really quite a nice bit of kit, when its working right. Video and sound quality are very good, and the Gracenotes feature of uploading all the DVD information is very helpful. Having our DVD library loaded on the machine is great, and the user interface menu is very easy to use. I've noticed a number of reviews noting problems with the machine not reading discs and giving an "Invalid Disc" error. My machine was developing a similar concern.
Summary: I will make this short and to the point. PICTURE...AMAZING DISC CHANGING TIME...LONG (COMPARED TO THE LAST MODEL, THE CDP-CX995) GRACENOTE...HORRIBLE....HORRIBLE...HORRIBLE!!!! I own this model and the one before with the keyboard input....believe me, having the keyboard input is waaaaay better!!! I only loaded this unit with music concert DVD's, NO movies. OUT OF 360 DVD'S IT FOUND 165!!!!! WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER 195???? I HAD TO TITLE THE REST WITH THE REMOTE!!!
