Cons: The player frequently refuses to load movies. Other times the sound totally stops, and the disc has to be ejected and reloaded to get the sound to come back. Tthe remote is often unreponsive also.
Summary: Would not read any type of disc after just 90 days. Yes, it had the latest firmware. Unlike many other companies you are on the hook for shipping cost to Sony. I did receive a refurbished unit back in timely manner that is working fine.

Pros: Works for movies at home, but in a internet netflx streaming world.
Cons: Why bother. Costs the same or more as players that will stream netflix, I spoke with a clerk at the store (wal-mart) about the samsung, vizio and this model. Got this model because the others were gone. The others will play netflixs for $20 less.
Summary: I recently purchased this blu ray player to use with my 40" Sony Bravia LCD TV. It performed well with great picture, sound, etc. All was well until I requested a CD to update the player's firmware. I followed the update instructions exactly and received a "SYS ERR" message on the player towards the end of the update. I followed the instructions for this error, and tried another update disc.
Pros: I like very little about this machine. I had a Sony BDP S300 for more than a year. This 3rd-generation model is not much better. It is smaller and lighter and a little bit faster, but it's still agonizing waiting for it to get going.
Cons: Still GLACIALLY slow to start up and load disks. It's only just noticeably faster than the first-generation Sony BDP S300 that it replaced.
Excerpt: Il lettore Sony BDP-360 ha un'ottima resa video, che si estende dai vecchi DVD, ai Blu-Ray, ma anche ai filmati ottenuti con videocamere amatoriali (sia in definizione standard che in alta definizione). Facile la navigazione nel menu e la scelta delle im ...
Pros: Qualità video, semplicità d'uso
Cons: Scarsa versatilità per la lettura dei vari formati video
