Summary: The Sony BDP-S370 I purchased was open-box but new and never used. It has the Firmware Version: "M03.R.694" that it shipped with new. As such, it does not look for a watermark (confirmed). This player will not be connected to the internet, so its apps and streaming performance are irrelevant for me.
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.
Summary: I bought this blu-ray player two years ago and it's performing wonderfully. It has great built quality. It's true that this blu-ray player doesn't have wi-fi, but that doesn't really bother me. I'm just happy that it can play a majority of my mkv file that are stored in my external hard drive.
Summary: I received my Sony BDP-S370 on 2/17/2012 and quickly configured it without a problem. These are the highlights: - For those of you that may not be aware: * If you have an HD-ready (no HDMI inputs, only component video (DTV)) TV, this unit will allow you to output 1080i over component to your TV.
Summary: This is an OK player. I rarely use it to watch blu ray disks, and actually have not used this feature at all. I have,however, watched regular dvd's, and they work just fine. I also do not use an HDMI cable with it either. I purchased this play for its streaming abilities.
Summary: 300 was the first BD I popped into this puppy. Forget being blown away by the clarity of the sound and picture, I was floored by how quickly everything loaded up, it was only seconds between inserting the disc and choosing a scene from the menu to test out.
If Netflix streaming video is jerky, read this to solve your problem!

Summary: This is an outstanding basic player if you don't need wireless, 3D, or a buffer for BD-Live. My only beef with it given the feature set is that the case is a little flimsy-feeling. If you press one of the buttons on the bottom lip of the case, it feels kind of flimsy and bends a little.
Summary: "Integrating the advantages of the Internet and Wi-Fi technology," led my wife to believe that WIFI was internal... WiFi READY means to me that it still needs something but what it needs is unclear in the description.
Pros: I really like the player. It has a lot of great features
Cons: I haven't had a problem with the player in anyway.
