Summary: Bought this for my mother in law for christmas to simplify her setup. I was a little worried about the factory refurbish. But when it came it looked brand new. I was very bummed out to find that the system does not have a built in wifi reciever (my fault for buying one without) so after buyimg and installing a 100 foot ethernet to run to the modem i was feeling a little better.
Summary: Two stars for being improperly refurbished. I ordered three and two out three came without being reset to new out of the box. They would turn on and play discs but that was it. I could not access the settings menu of the player at all. I had to do a hard reset which is what they should have done at the factory. Turn the player on and firmly hold down the stop button on the player for 20 seconds then restart and setup.
This thing slipped into the small space I had and rests there nicely. The remote is small and pretty straightforward

Summary: I picked this up as a gift for my not-so-tech-savvy parents when they asked me about a Blu-Ray Player. I looked for the smallest, cheapest no-frills player I could find with my Prime subscription and came across this refurbished Sony. I've always respected Sony's quality and their products so I figured it would get the job done. It's about as bare-bones as you can currently find for a BD-Player and that's all I wanted it to do.
Summary: I am just disappointed because I had this idea that Blu Ray was this amazing magical system. All I have gotten out of it so far is being able to see the actors make up. Being able to see where they tried to hide someone's acne is not really much of a plus. The bonus material is the sort of thing you can find on YouTube. But the picture is great and you can play DVD's as well as Blu Rays and for the price is it great. You would never know it was a refurb.
Summary: I just received my new DVD player within 24 hours of ordering it.It was packaged beautifully and arrived without a blemish.The DVD player looks new instead of refurbished.I also purchased a Square Trade service policy for two years 100% coverage parts,labor and postage.This plan cost only $3.25 which is a steal if you were ask me.I hooked up the HDMI cable from my old DVD player,put a movie in and played it.This DVD player does a lot more but I bought it to play movies...
Summary: This is a great bluray player, we have used it for 3 months with no problems whatsoever. It does what it's supposed to do. But be aware this does not come with all the cords you will need, you will have to purchase an HDMI cable and Coaxial cable.
