Update Your Firmware

Kathy Audelo "Kathy", Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this unit that was used as a store demo so it was basically new. The firmware at that time was 2.0. I used it and it seemed slow to load. I updated the firmware to 5.6 and boy did that make a BIG improvement on loading times.

Sony Blu-ray stopped reading after 14 months

Richard Massa, Amazon
10 November 2010
  • Summary: Beware of Sony Blu Ray! There is a good chance it will die soon after the warranty expires! Most company's will extend the warranty if its within a month or 2, NOT SONY! Support is the worst in the industry! Very strange this happens more then the feedback states here on Amazon???

  • Summary: Just a post to say that people must realize there are many people who are unhappy with the demise of hd-dvd, so much so that they are crowind the blu-ray reviews and threads with terrible reviews, when they probably have never even owned a blu-ray player.

They will not make them like this again

J. Aravindhan, Amazon
18 January 2008
  • Summary: Pictures do not do it justice.You will have to see Sony's BDP-S1 in the flesh to appreciate the fit and finish.Unfortunately when the market catches on, Blu Ray players will weigh about the same as an average laptop and feel flimsy.Just compare Toshiba's current Hd dvd players to their earlier...

Comapre withPanasonic first

Electronics Junkie, Amazon

  • Summary: I have both Blu Ray players in my rig . The Sony is much inferior due to lack of gamma control , picture and sound quality is already not as good as Panasonic. the Panasonic has a built in scaler that is incredible. If you can compare chapter nine of Kingdom of Heaven on both players.

Surpasses HD DVD In Quality

A. Mendez, Amazon
10 July 2007
  • Summary: Don't pay attention to most of the other reviews here -- they're written mainly by HD DVD supporters who have no interest in seeing Blu-ray succeed. Fact is, this is a MUCH more solid, reliable and quality product than the el-cheapo Toshiba HD DVD player.
