Summary: Let me preface my review by saying that I have owned several Sony products (televisions, stereo equipment, video equipment, etc.) and have always been quite pleased with the performance and quality. My experience with the Sony BDP-S300 Blu-ray player has been a completely different story.
Summary: I can't believe how incredibly slow this player is in loading disks, powering up and even ejecting disks. I had a lot of problems playing half the blu-ray disks I rented until I updated the firmware but that did not speed up the other functions. I love the picture quality however.
Summary: As everyone else has stated, this unit is SLOW. But in case you didn't get the hint, here's one more review for you. I couldn't be more disappointed as to how long it takes to power up, its slow response to the remote and reading a dvd. I have a Harmony remote with a "Movietime" activity.
Summary: I can't tell you how disappointed I am with Sony and this product. I am sorry I ever purchased it. I have had it repaired once by Sony and yet blu-ray discs continue to freeze up and I have to shut the system down and restart, I clean the discs as well, only to have it freeze in a new place!
Summary: Let me say this: It's slow, slow, slow!!! It will get stuck only for you to have to restart it from the begining, so wait an aditional 10 min. every time. My advice, wait till you can afford a decent one.
Summary: bought one from sony last week. wouldnt play the new bluray live dvds. after 5 phone calls and 2 updates the admitted in will never be able to play the newer formated discs.i can return for credit if i pay the shipping costs.
