Summary: I have struggled with this player for 2-3 years and have never been able to feel good about its purchase. It plays some discs well, others will not even load. I have stayed up to date with the latest downloads from the Sony site, and yet there is always an element of mystery and anxiety when trying to watch a new movie.
Summary: This DVD player has stopped working for me. It worked well for about two years. Now it is skipping on so many discs that it is pretty much useless. I will never get another Sony product. I had a TV go bad and now a DVD player. They have ruined a once great reputation.
Summary: This is baffling. I've purchased Sony products for years (I buy other brands, too). Guess I've had it for 18 months, 2 years or so. Anyway, last week I got an error regarding "BD Data". The player is stuck in this error mode and will not allow me to play DVD's. Blu-ray or otherwise. I searched the internet and found this problem happens to other people as well. One solution mentions removing the USB drive from the USB port.
Summary: If you like googleing and searching youtube for how to watch a bluray disk, then this is the player for you. If you enjoy downloading "upgrades" and spending an evening trying to make the player read them, by all means SONY is your guy. Of course I'm being sarcastic. Avoid this bluray player. I have played maybe a half dozen disks and the latest one can't be played.
Summary: I have had this BDP-S360 for almost a year. The player it self is fine. Last night we watched a great movie and the player worked great. I have been seeing a update notice for the last two weeks and finally decided to update it after the movie. What a mistake! The update created a system error and has rendered my player useless. I spent hours on the phone with Sony support. First Ron, then Leo, then Lorretta, then Raven, and finally Grace.
Sony dvd player for a great price and great quality
9 September 2012
Excerpt: We bought this DVD player about 2 years ago at Walmart for only $20. I can not remember if it was at a discounted price, but I am pretty sure it was just at the regular retail cost. We already knew Sony to be a great brand and honestly did not even know they sold something that cheap.
Sony DVD player is a great value with superb quality
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This Sony DVD player has been a fantastic investment, and it is a tremendous value. We have had no problems with it other than my 2 old thinking it is his newest toy. Set up was easy. It is a nice small size, especially compared to our last one. It is also feature rich with all the bells and whistles that most of us don't use and don't care to try to learn how. Technology has come a long way since we bought our first DVD player, so the fact that this one recognizes...
Excerpt: I bought this player when I found it on sale for $89. For the price this player can't be beat. The picture quality is awesome, the upconverting looks good, and the sound is great too. The menus, setup, and features are very user friendly. The start up times are decent(not fast or slow). It does lack certain features which would be nice, such as the Netflix streaming capability.
Excerpt: I absolutely love my sony dvd player. It is one of the best. Not bulky at all. The flat design is cool and fits easily into the console that we have and most everone else has. Totally worth it. I have three kids and they can easily work it and know how to start it and take the disc out and evyrhting. It's great. It's pretty hardy and nice matching color. The keys are fluch with the machine so it's easey to clean.
