Excerpt: This Sony Blu-Ray player provides the basic features you need, without a lot of extras.If you are a fan of Sony's ergonomics and button design, this player is unlikely to disappoint . . . except for the entire front-panel that swivels down whenever opening or closing the drawer. That aspect of this player is cool to watch for about the first five times, then from that point it is an annoying detriment to usability.
Cons: I am wondering if there is a problem with my player or with my cable. A few times I have put in a DVD from Red Box and my tv will say looking for signal and the screen goes blue. I never had this issue before I got the DVD player. Any suggestions?

Pros: The picture quality is very good and the sound was easy to hook up to our amplifier. I like the fact the kids can't eject the discs out of the player from the remote, and I like the flip down face and style.
Cons: Didn't realize I needed a USB memory stick in the back of the player to use some of the Blu-Ray features, otherwise I have been happy with this player which was included when we purchased our TV.

Pros: Design is good, nice and thin, connections are adequate, and after only having viewed one Blu Ray disc, I was happy with video quality and everything seemed to work, and as I didn't pay a fortune for it, my expectations weren't very high.
Cons: No eject button on the remote??? The 'Home' setup menu is harder to navigate than it has to be. The 'Home' screen comes up when you turn unit on and doesn't go away until you insert a disk....would be nice to make it disappear.
Summary: Pros: Reasonably priced. Easy setup. Good e-support. Cons: Unable to view DVD's with HDMI connection. Summary: When first connected to a two year old Philips 42" Plasma TV via the recommended HDMI cable. Upon switching on, there was a brief "splash" image showing the Blu-ray logo and then approximately 3-4 seconds of digital snow followed by 2-3 seconds blank (black) screen. This was continually repeated without being able to access the setup menu (Xross Media Bar).
Summary: I love the sound and picture quality. I also agree it is annoying that there is no eject button on the remote control. Also, this unit does not "remember" the last point at which you stopped the movie. It starts from scratch, even if you take a one hour break from the movie (without ejecting it even!). I expect more from Sony.
Summary: I decided on this Sony bluray player because I have a Sony HD TV. I figured same brand, less hassle. This player produces excellent picture quality from bluray discs but there is much to be desired when playing DVDs. This bluray player's upconverting is NOT on par with the Sony DVD player (DVP-NS710), which I consider as excellent.
Excerpt: Hace un año o quizás menos, le regalaron a mi padre un lector BLU- RAY Sony BDP-S360. Obviamente todos sus hijos llegamos a la casa y lo primero que hicimos fue venga mirara el aparato. Luego caímos en que se necesitaban películas en formato BLUY -RAY y como no teníamos, pues estuvimos buscándolas mucho tiempo. En los típicos grandes almacenes encontré varias, peor eran siempre las misma y tampoco es que pudiera escoger entre un montón.
