Does NOT play 3D disks

Thomas Pyzdek, Amazon
18 November 2014
  • 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.

All parts not included ~ twice!!!

  • 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).

Blue Ray

Rod "Buyer", Amazon
15 October 2014
  • 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.

Not bad, but sloooooooowwwwwwww

Nasser Al-sulaihim, Amazon
2 October 2014
  • Summary: Reasonably priced and nice and compact. It has an abundance of apps which is great. My biggest complaint is how slow it is. You click buttons on the remote and literally wait 1 to 3 seconds for something to happen. My PS3 from 2005 is instantaneous to this day when I hit buttons on the remote.

Refurbished Sony BDPS3100 Blu-Ray

Larry P., Newegg
24 August 2014
  • 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...

  • Summary: I was afraid I wouldn't be able to view Netflex because of the lack of good instructions, but it worked. The on-screen instructions were easy. The manual lacks further instructions.

It's OK

R. McAdams, Amazon
23 June 2014
  • Summary: I have owned many Sony Blu-Ray players (check my review history), and this one does nothing special to stand out. This one, like its predecessors, works well enough, I suppose. It has all the standard ports (HDMI-out, digital audio-out) etc. etc.

Substandard Streaming Experience

BearsFan80, Amazon
5 June 2014
  • Summary: When the Amazon Fire TV was released, I debated getting that or getting a Blu Ray player that would stream Amazon Prime so that I could both stream and watch Blu Rays. Obviously I went the Blu Ray route. It plays Blu Rays and DVDs just fine; this review is about the streaming capabilities.
