Great Player with Left and Right Audio Outs

mlnashvegas, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: Great player with left and right audio outs. A bit flimsy but I have seen worse. Be careful if you are playing movies off of a hard drive though. It is limited in what formats it will play through the USB port.

Great picture and sound- let down by auto-power-off and lack of resume features

Ian Tyack, Amazon
7 December 2013
  • Summary: Audio and video are great, but two features that seriously let it down are the auto-power-off feature (if you leave your movie paused for too long) and the lack of a resume feature as I've seen on Panasonic players (skips all menus and startup, jumping right back into the film where you left off). This means anytime you need to pause the movie for more than a few minutes, it takes you another 5 minutes or so to get back to where you left off.

cheap way to stream Prime Instant in HD

johndoe13, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • 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.

Paul, Amazon
18 March 2012
  • Summary: The player arrived timely and in good condition. I was a little surprised that the unit was cheaply made (for SONY) but it works well and does the job.

Great for everything but Netflix

Husband, Dad, and Nerd, Amazon
23 February 2012
  • 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...

great value, but no CC on netflix

mile9 "westcoastgirl", Amazon
29 January 2012
  • 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.

Fantastic Bluray, shoddy iPlayer

S. K. Firth, Amazon
2 February 2013
  • 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.

THE GOOD & THE BAD...

Neil, Amazon
12 November 2011
  • 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.

einstiegsmodell, geeignet für normales abspielen

Matze, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: so nun läuft das gute stück seid 1 jahr und 3 Monaten. bis jetzt konnt ich mich nie beschweren. sicherlich ist das Laufwerk etwas lauter, aber beim aspielen von filmen wird es dann doch vom saound des Fernsehers bzw. anlage übertönt. leider ist es nach der genannten zeit bereits defekt. es werden keine dvd's noch bluerays abgespielt. Laufwerk läuft an und mehr passiert nicht mehr. echt schade. hatte da von sony mehr erwartet.
