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: 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.
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: I bought this Sony Blu Ray player on black friday for $99. It was kind of an impulse buy, but I really liked that it automatically hooked up to the internet to connect to web streaming services like netflix and youtube. I got home and set up the device. It took a few minutes for the player to connect to my internet and find my netflix account. The setup could not have been easier, the device does it all.
Excerpt: We have had the Sony Blue-ray DVD Player for a little under a year and so far we really enjoyed it. We haven't used barely any of the features. (And trust me their is PLENTY to choose from) But we have used the Nteflix off of their and we really loved the convenience of being able to load whatever movie that we want to watch right then and there in a only a matter of minutes.
Excerpt: I have been waiting for a few years now to get a blu-ray player. I love watching movies, and the better quality, the happier I am. I was keeping my eye out before they even released the players, and I was cheering for blu-ray during the battle with HD-DVD. My only problem was the price. I just couldn't justify spending hundreds of dollars at a time when it's hard enough to buy clothes.
Excerpt: We received this as a Christmas gift in 2010. We were pretty excited about it, since blu ray was suppose to be the way to go. I've got to say, I was quite disappointed! There is no eject button, so you have to push the button on the machine. Not that big of a deal. But, you push the button and then have to wait a good 2 minutes for the thing to open! Then, you push the button to close it, and it takes several more minutes before the thing loads.
