Expensive paper weight

  • 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.

Don't Buy

  • Pros: Good Picture
  • Cons: Won't play newer Blu-ray disks

Incredibly Slow

Michael G. Mahoney, Amazon
9 July 2009
  • 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.

Slowwwww!

Jay, Amazon
4 March 2009
  • 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.

Blu Ray may not be ready yet

boondoggle1970, PriceGrabber
27 February 2009
  • Summary: I've always thought Sony was over rated and this just reinforced that thought. When this thing works the picture is great but it's so unstable, it takes 3-5 to load up any Blu Rays.
  • Pros: Picture Quality
  • Cons: Unstable Requires constant updates

Sorry I ever bought this piece of garbage!

T. Michels, Amazon
31 January 2009
  • 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!

Wow, slow, and so bad!!!

Glen Abel, Amazon
28 January 2009
  • 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.
