Good player, slow load, no wireless, overly expensive.

  • Summary: Sony still sells this unit, so I thought I'd review it for those who might be thinking of buying it. I've had this player for a couple years, and I'm getting ready to replace it with a Panasonic BDT-210. Why?
  • Pros: Great picture; great sound; allows firmware updates by CD if you're not hardwired to the Internet.
  • Cons: Slow load, although it's better with the recent firmware update (4/11). No wireless. Relatively expensive for what you get ($220), vs. what other players can do for under $150.

It isn't too bad

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: I received this player free as part of a Newegg.com promo. If it hadn't been free I would not have purchased it. The player functions and play back is really good, but I have seen much better products and not for much more.
  • Pros: It works It has an Ethernet port It has all the AV connections one needs including HDMI
  • Cons: It is very slow. Probably one of the slowest disc players I have seen. Ethernet is only good for updating the firmware and really has no other uses. What a waste of a good connection. The machine is bulky. For the small amount of features it could be smaller.

Too Noisy

Gary A., Newegg

  • Pros: Nice size and price is right.
  • Cons: Too noisy! This thing makes a noise like a purring sound that can be heard a few feet away. I read this in one other review but I thought the reviewer must be too picky, but they were right! I returned it.

  • Summary: This unit is hooked up to a Sony Bravia TV and Onkyo receiver usind HDMI
  • Pros: Solid 10 on picture quality and sound
  • Cons: Scores a 1 on ease of operation during initial setup. Could get back ground sound of movies but could not hear the actors voice. This unit had a compatibility issue with my Onkyo receiver. Spent the first night figuring all this out. Called sony tech support but could not understand what the tech...

  • Summary: The device works ok, but: - no divx play - no USB key play (a usb key can be connected for other goals) - no eject button on the remote - very slow start if you want to save energy but you can connect an ethernet cable...

Great product until it stops playing DVD's

  • 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.

Average

  • Summary: This player plays discs as it should. However, it has extremely slow loading speed (which is typical to many blu ray players) and it only has a stop and play buttons on the unit, so it is a brick if you lose the remote (and many universal remotes don't have the sony blu ray player codes).
