Summary: We have had this Blu-ray player since November 2014. Throughout this time, it has frozen up on several occasions and we have had to unplug it and plug it back in to get it to work again. I purchased this model because I thought it was somewhat better than the cheapest ones out there.
Horrible remote, not the best software, decent hardware

Summary: I have had this player for more than a year. So far, I have mixed feelings about it. Here are some pros and cons: Good: Thin and light, doesn't take much space; Seems to be reasonably well made; Good picture quality; Bad: Confusing software; Somewhat finicky, couldn't read some discs, though it...
Summary: To the reviewer who stated "It also plays 3D disks and BD-live disks that automatically download bonus content but those were not evaluated because of my set-up." News flash: this unit does NOT play 3D disks.
Summary: I am quite happy with the blu-ray player itself. Great quality picture, easy to set up. However, I ordered through Amazon due to ease of delivery ~ no need to even hop in my car for add'l components since HDMI cable included (so stated in guide as well on Amazon website).
Summary: Bought for the smart features and they work well. So does the DVD part. Had a problem with disconnecting WiFi every day with my Asus router so I used wireline internet instead. I don't have this problem with any other wireless device in the house.

Summary: This product works. I never used it for BluRay only for the smart app - and to get Amazon Prime on my TV. + It works and gets Amazon Prime - The internet takes forever to load on this thing (I know it's this because it loads fine on all my other devices) sometimes it takes 4 or 5 reloads before it...
Summary: I have bought a couple of cheap Android streaming devices with Wi-FI and they both worked well as far as the Wi-Fi goes. The Sony Wi-Fi seems very weak. The signal strength is so low that it will only work intermittently.
Pros: I bought the Blu-Ray device mostly for streaming Internet content. I have only tried the disk player one time to make sure that it worked. I used a DVD disk to test it and it works fine. The Internet streaming works very well if I use the wired interface. The Picture quality is very good and the ...
Cons: I can only get the WI-FI to work intermittently at a distance of about 30ft from the router. I had to use a powerline wired interface device to use the Internet streaming. It is working fine with a set of Actiontec 200 Powerline Network Adapter Kit. I have used the Internet streaming about 20 tim...
