Summary: Works fine as a basic blu ray. Have not used internet feature. Only comes with 30 day warranty so I bought two year plan thru Wal-Mart. Box it was shipped in looked like was fished out of trash but player itself looks brand new. No manual included but on screen set up was easy. Does not need to be hooked up to internet to watch movies on disc.
Summary: I purchased this DVD player so I could play netflix on my old tube tv. PROS: *Netflix *Pandora *Works on older tvs (has vgs? connectors, the red, yellow and white plug ins) *Wired ethernet connection *A ton of apps come on this player CONS: *Likes to buffer sometimes *It is a refurb, so the player is already registered to the old user. I wanted to use my Pandora and it requires a registration code from the device to sign up on Sony Essentials to get it to work.
Summary: I connected this player to an older widescreen TV that did not have an hdmi input so I used the composit video output. It worked OK but I wanted better resolution so I switched to the HDMI output and used a converter box to convert the HDMI to component output. This provided the best resolution I could expect with this TV and I am happy with the end result. Connection to my network and setup of the internet connection was fast and easy.
Summary: The main problem I encountered was setting up the screen settings. When I first turned on the DVD player the screen was jumping all over the place. It was not until I got to the screen settings option and removed the 1080i setting that the "jumping" cleared. It was difficult getting to this option since you couldn't see the screen well at all. The DVD tray makes a strange sound when opening and closing so that could be an issue but so far it works.
Summary: Well if I'd read the box I wouldn't have messed up. I wanted something that would work with my Wi-Fi router wirelessly... Well the box says Netflix, ETC but I wasn't thinking and I bought it anyway. Other than that its a nice little unit, looked brand new, plays videos and music and pics off USB which I like. It's a tad picky on video formatting for the USB part. I found it best to convert them to MP4s and it works great.
