Summary: I ordered the Sony BDP-S370 on a Friday and it was shipped the following Monday. The problem is, TigerDirect switched out the Blu Ray player I ordered with the newer Sony BDP-BX39. It seems the S370 isn't available anymore. As with most "new and improved" products they eliminated some features on the new model. One thing is no optical output connection that I was looking for. The BX39 is a smaller footprint but this was not one of my requirements for a new player.
Excerpt: Just received this new Sony BDP-S370 blu ray player for Christmas. We already have a Samsung blu ray player, but it would make this annoying high pitched noise as the blu ray would play. The picture wasn't much clearer than regular tv. So, for Christmas this year my husband purchase me a new Sony BDP-S370 blu ray player. I can tell you the minute he hooked it up, which was a breeze, there was an amazing difference from our old player to the new Sony BDP-S370.
Excerpt: The only thing that would increase my rating of this player is if the wifi was built-in or if I could have used a standard dongle rather than paying an extra $80 for the Sony dongle. That said, it was so easy to hook up and set up on the network. We easily merged it with our existing Netflix and Amazon accounts, as well as set up the Sony VOD (for which we were rewarded with a $5 credit) and other services.
Excerpt: My boyfriend and I just received this Blu Ray player for Christmas, and at first, I wasn't too excited. First, because the wireless adapter wasn't included and cost an extra $90! And second, because I didn't see a huge difference between DVDs and Blu Rays other than blu rays costing more. I quickly realized I didn't need the wireless adapter and just hooked into the internet router. I also realized this can play DVDs so I dont need to switch to blu ray.
Excerpt: This is my first blu ray player. It came as a package deal with a Sony LED tv. I have owned this blu ray player for about six months. I was skeptical about if the picture would be that much better than dvd's. I was pleasantly suprised. The first movie I rented was Invictus. I was amazed by the picture that the blu ray provided. I was easily convinced that the blu rays surpassed dvd's in picture quality. The set up of this blu ray player was easy.
Excerpt: We purchased this item just before christmas to stream netflix and updgrade to Blu-ray. Our TV is not 1080p ready so we don't get the full HD/Blu-ray experience but it is worth the upgrade for the chance to play Blu-ray disks with their higher quality picture and sound. I love that I can also still watch DVDs on this player. The online apps are awesome and vary from Netflix and Pandora to temporary channels such as a Michael Jackson music video tribute.
The Sony Blu-Ray Play has lots of features, slow to respond

Excerpt: We recently bought the Sony BDP-S370 Blu-Ray Player. We wanted something we could stream our Netflix and Hulu to and got so much more than we bargained for. It has tons of different videos, movies, pod-casts, music stations, ability to stream to Pandora...the list almost seems endless. However, not sure if it's our internet connection or if it's the blu-ray players response time that is so slow when watching shows or movies streamed from the internet.
Excerpt: We received this as an early Christmas (and thank you) gift from my parents and have totally fallen in love with it! IT not only allows us to watch Blu-Ray movies, but with it hooked up to our home network we can stream our Netflix and watch movies & TV shows off an external hard drive. Pros: Price. We got this as a gift, but I was actually the one who physically bought on Black Friday for $99.
Excerpt: I received this Sony Blu-Ray player for Christmas a couple of years ago. It is the first and only Blu-Ray player I have ever owned and I have really enjoyed it. This Blu-Ray player plays both Blu-Rays and also DVDs, which is nice because I don’t think all Blu-Rays players play both. I have an extensive DVD collection and it was very important that any Blu-Ray player I owned would play my DVDs as well. I have had no problems from this Blu-Ray player.
I really don't see the difference between this & regular DVD.

Excerpt: We have nothing but HD TVs so getting at least one Blu-ray disc player was soon to follow. I got this Sony BDP-S370 Blu-ray Player only because it was on sale, only payed $100. The kids seem to like it and my wife does too but I really can't tell the difference at all. Maybe I just need to get my glasses checked because I have watched the regualr DVD of a movie & blu-ray version of it and could not tell any difference other than the blu-ray had some extra special...
