Sony BDP-S300 is soooo slow

cking9365, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: First off, we are early adopters which means that we bought a Blu Ray player very early on.  There was still a battle among the HD players and Blu Ray players and we took a risk.  Thankfully, Blu Ray won and we were happy. On the plus side, this is a Sony product which to me automatically means quality.  Generally, it is pretty great. The picture is crisp and clear.  It plays most movies and up-converts regular DVD's to increase the picture quality.

"Read reviews before you buy. $421=me being disaapointed"

  • Pros: Great picture and thats about it!
  • Cons: Very slow loading times. Everytime you get a blu ray disc that wont work you have to call Sony (poor customer service) and wait for the disc to come in the mail. We have had this unit freeze up on us approximately 30 times over the past three years

  • Pros: Great picture quality. Reliable. Has been running for 2 years now.
  • Cons: THE LOAD UP TIME IS HORRENDOUSLY SLOW!!! I hate this player because it takes a good 5 minutes before it is ready to play a damn movie! Rediculously slow when you first turn it on. Otherwise, no complaints.

buy a disc and update?

  • Summary: I find it very frustrating that the blu-ray players in general require updates. Buy a movie on the way home. Get home only to find the disc will not play. Very sad for "Blu-ray".

  • Pros: Well, it usually plays Blue Rays discs
  • Cons: Painfully slow load time. Can get stuck loading. Often has problems reading discs and says wrong region code or incompatible even though the disc has previously worked and will work again if I reinsert or power cycle the machine.

Turn it on before you make popcorn.

  • Summary: I've got one major beef with this machine, and that is I T I S S O S L O W. Takes forever to power up or to load a disk. I've also had some curious lock-ups while attempting to navigate through disk menus (I suspect that I may not have been patient enough to let the player catch up before issuing another command.

Blue Ray DVD

Overstock
8 August 2008
  • Summary: Takes too long to start up, open up and to run blue-ray. Don't understand why this would be the thing to replace all DVD's. Sure great picture but so much would need to improve to make this worthwhile. I never received the DVD that was to come with it! Cannot recommend. I may return.
