Excerpt: Sony sells seven stand-alone Blu-ray players, ranging from its entry level BDP-S360 ($150, HT, July 2009) up to its Elevated Standard BDP-CX7000ES MegaChanger ($1,900, HT, March 2010). But one of the biggest complaints against Sony’s BD players has been the lack of networking features.
Conclusion: The BDP-N460 gets a lot of things right but it's not the slam dunk I was hoping for from Sony. Speedy boot-up and shutdown times are a huge plus and I was largely impressed with the unit's internet streaming capabilities.
Pros: Fast boot and shutdown times; blazing fast disc load times, Robust internet streaming capabilities - including Netflix & Amazon, Improved Netflix Watch Instantly queue browsing
Cons: No onboard memory for BD-LIVE, Recessed USB port out back is destined to annoy, Video menu comingles disc playback with Internet video channels, Lacks multi-channel analog outputs
