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

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).
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.
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. The software is clumsy and looks like something from the 1980s
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.
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.
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.
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.
