Summary: I was looking for a quality Blu Ray Player for my bedroom and this one takes the cake by far. I have owned a number of Blu Ray Players and this is one of the best. It's not going to beat my Playstation 3 but it cost a third of the price so I'm not expecting it to. But is does rival the picture and sound quality of the PS3. Pros: Great Picture and Sound quality!
Summary: Excellent product, simly picture quality is great, excellent sound, quality and excellent finish. I highly recommend it, like all SONY products. I like: the internet connection is very fast, firmware updates are welcome. very friendly in general management of bluray, the connection with my SONY BRAVIA TV is excellent. video and sound quality is AMAZING.
Summary: This Blu-Ray player is my first and it's great. It isn't as expensive as some of the higher-end Blu-Ray players out there, which is great for a college student such as myself. The price is lower than most for a reason, though. If you're looking for a Blu-Ray player that'll even wash your clothes for you, this is not the one you're looking for.
Summary: I waited patiently for Blu-ray player prices to drop enough to be competitive with DVD. This is my first stand-alone Blu-ray player (I previously used a PS3 with the Blu-ray remote). I considered more expensive models but honestly couldn't justify the additional cost. Installation and setup was very simple. I connected via HDMI to a 1080P LCD. The picture quality of Blu-ray disks is awesome. Movies are crystal clear and vivid. Sound is good as well.
Summary: This is my 1st BluRay player. I use it as my upconverting DVD player and my CD player as well. Loading standard DVDs is very fast and the picture quality of the up conversion is very clean and crisp with no artifacts that I can see. It does an exceelent job. It also works very well as a CD player. As a Blu Ray player, it also does an excleent job of present ing a detailed sharp well fleshed out picture.
Summary: I bought a Samsung BD-P1600 nine months ago and had nothing but problems. You can read my review over at that page if you want all the details. I finally had it and decided to purchase this Sony player. What a big difference! Plays everything I throw in it flawlessly without any issues, which is more that I can say for the Samsung player. A player like this just proves that you don't need a PS3 in order to get stable playback of Blu-ray Discs.
Summary: This was my first purchase into the bluray world - and it didn't disappoint but in a totally surprising way. The unit is sturdy, quiet, and runs flawlessly. I had been worried about firmware updates but so far there have been no reason to update it - so no complaints there. I ordered some bluray discs (despite the ridiculous cost of them) and they are spectacular. Now for the surprise - my old DVDs are spectacular too.
