Excerpt: I bought this Sony S350 Blu-Ray DVD player for my husband the Christmas before last. We were amazed at the image quality of the Blu-Ray movies. It trumps the HD channels on TV. So we were very happy with that aspect of it. However, the Blu-Ray DVD's take a lot longer to load than normal DVD's. And we've had some trouble navigating through the movie once it's playing (such as chapter selection, menu options, etc.
Excerpt: I bought this Blu-ray player in November 2009 and have used it off and on ever since. I won't tell you I am a big user of Blu-ray/DVD players, I am casual at best. However, I must say I am quite impressed with the picture quality of the Blu-ray movies as compared to televised movies in high definition. The player also upscaled DVDs so they look a little better than you would see on a cheapo DVD player (but not as good as Blu-ray).
Summary: We have had our Sony blue ray disc player for just over a year. We played maybe 7 discs on the player. During the 7th movie it froze and an error message came up saying no disc. Try as we might we could not get the machine to work again. A HUGE waste of money!!!! Buyer beware!!!! Sony will not stand behind this product.
Pros: Great picture before it ceases to recognize your blue ray discs.
