Summary: Got this player for Prime Video streaming, it's cheaper than Roku for a wired connection. The unit does not come with WiFi, which is perfect to avoid streaming issues. Setup took less than 10 mins, the firmware was up to date, so did not have to wait for that. The second step was to create an account on Sony Entertainment Network, and finally, register the device with Amazon.
Summary: With the latest firmware version, much of the "auto shutoff" and many other complaints from earlier poor reviews seem to no longer be valid. There is however a newer problem entirely of Sony's making, and one they seem to have no desire to remedy. It has become a universal complaint across Sony internet products now (seems to have started a few months ago) that Netflix has serious problems during peak hours (6-10 pm central in my case), with it constantly pausing and...
Summary: This was my first blu-ray purchase and it's got a lot of things going for it. Super compact size, great value, awesome picture. But I was sad to discover that it doesn't stream closed-captioning on Netflix. For those of us who rely on subtitles, this is a major bummer.
Summary: As a bluray player it does exactly what it says on the box. However, there is a fatal bug with the BBC iPlayer, for many people it simply does not work, crashing the system entirely and failing to launch. I just wanted a BD player, however others in the house wanted to use it for iPlayer instead of stealing the PS3 to use on the Tv downstairs.
Summary: First of all the pro's in this unit's favour; the design is immaculate, compact and a joy to look at. The startup speed of blu-rays is also far quicker than my other player (a PS3) although that is to be expected being a stand alone unit. And then of course there is the price. However I have a MAJOR issue with this unit which appears to be a fault identical to that found with the Sony BDPS370 player.
Summary: The reader Sony BDP-S185 Blu-ray plays all formats, avi, HD, BLURAY, MKV, DIVX HD, written in a PC to a blu ray disk. Codecs the sound works fine. Subtitles for work in the movies, has to be introduced in the movie (Bluray, mkv) using the program "mkvtoolnix". or "AVIAddXSub".Then choose the language and sound manually. This fine work.
Summary: BluRay Player von Sony Leider kann ich diese tollen Rezensionen hier nicht teilen. In meinen Augen hat Sony da keinen guten Player auf dem Markt gebracht. Ich habe rund 90 Euro für den BluRay Player bei Amazon bezahlt und mir die Bewertungen dort leider nicht durchgelesen. Nun habe ich die Quittung bekommen und ich frag mich warum Sony diesen Player so auf den Markt gelassen hat.
Summary: Für den Preis wohl absolut ok aber mich persönlich nervt der hochfrequente Dauerton ( vor allem bei ruhigeren Szenen ). Einige scheinen hier die allgemeine Lautstärke des Players mit dem Dauerton zu verwechseln. Das Laufgeräusch ist absolut in Ordnung, das piepen stört aber ungemein. Starten der Disc dauert auch sehr lange.
