UNUSABLE NETFLIX

Charles S., Newegg
19 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this from Best buy in a moment of weakness, I usually use Newegg. Sony's customer service leaves a lot to be desired, so far no cure for the constantly stopping Netflix. Regular Hulu would be nice as would some other online choices such as Revision 3, a wider range or choice of podcasts and more online functionality in general.
  • Pros: Good blu ray player, quite fast start. Hulu plus free trial with credit card, a selection of other online choices such as tv shows (old), movies (old unless you pay) and other shows and clips like podcasts. Front and rear usb.
  • Cons: The Netflix service is unusable, whether you use an N router or hard wire it, the service stops frequently and makes it almost unwatchable. Attempts to get a solution from Sony have so far met with generic unhelpful 'solutions'. Canadian models have Divx, but we don't get it. The usb port will play mpeg and .vob files ONLY. Anything else will not work, come on Sony throw a few more codecs in!! No regular Hulu available on Plus with a credit card. No facebook, no block...

Streaming video for a home network DOES NOT WORK!

Kontrol, Newegg
20 July 2010
  • Summary: Netflix streaming, Pandora work great. The interface is great. However, one of the big reasons I purchased this is to be able to stream movies from a NAS. In theory, a DLNA certified player SHOULD be able to do this, but this one can not. Well, it can if you have WindowsMediaPlayer transcode the stream, but that's nothing more than a hack, and it requires a windows box to be running. Thus a standalone NAS drive is useless.
  • Pros: Great interface, iPhone remote app, good picture quality, lots of internet media streaming options.
  • Cons: Although this unit is advertised as DLNA certified, IT CAN NOT STREAM YOUR VIDEOS FROM YOUR NETWORK. So, if you think that you'll be able to put this on your network and view all those movies you've collected on your big harddrive, forget it.

Read the specs carefully

R. Cahn, Amazon
2 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this player because according to the manufacturers specs it would play the file formats for Divx and MKV. I hooked the player up right away and noticed it wouldn't play the Divx files or even recognize them. I updated the player to the latest software and this didnt help. I contacted Sony support and they told me to look at the fine print on page 32 in the manual and in the fine print it states that Divx is only for the Canadian players.

Poor product from giant Sony.

Barrett "Barrett", Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: I was very excited to receive my Sony Blu Ray player, my first venture into Blu Ray after purchasing a Sony HD TV. I had already bought a Blu Ray disc to watch and set it all up, closed the curtains and sat back to enjoy. Wow, I though the picture is amazing, really clear and vibrant, to a HD novice like myself it almost gave the impression of 3D! Even the sound seemed clearer, no more muddy voices.

cuidado com a internet do aparelho!!

giovani hideo tut..., Bondfaro
19 January 2013
  • Summary: o aparelho é de fácil instalação e manuseio. Quanto à durabilidade ainda não tenho opinião.
  • Pros: muito bom de imagem e som. Parece que as fotografias ficam mais nitidas quando reproduzidas no aparelho.
  • Cons: é o tal do adaptador wireless UWA BR100... é muito caro. Sem ele vc não acessa internet e os extras do filme. Se não for por esse adaptador, pode ser pela linha comum (LAN) do telefone fixo... mas como eu não pago isso, então fico no epa!

Geschenkt würde ich ihn nehmen

Thomas Gloeckler, Amazon
3 December 2010
  • Summary: Eigentlich wurde ja schon so gut wie alles gesagt, ich möchte nur nochmal zur Vorsicht raten, sollte sich jemand dieses Gerät anschaffen wollen. Vorab: ich bin absoluter Heimkino-Einsteiger und wollte mir in erster Linie einen neuen DVD-Player anschaffen, der auch Blu Ray kann und den ich digital an meinem neuen Samsung LED-TV anschließen kann.

Super Teil, ABER....

2cvr, Amazon
16 November 2010
  • Summary: Ich muss sagen, im Gegensatz zu meinem BDP-S350 ist dieser Player echt eine Rakete! Der Funktionsumfang ist aus meiner Sicht echt berauschend. Aber leider muss ich mich meinen Vorrednern anschliessen. Das Laufwerk des Players fiept bei all meinen Blu-RayŽs unerträglich. Selbst meine Frau fragte mich ob das Normal ist! Ich hatte erst überlegt ob ich eine Glasplatte oder ähnliches vor den Player baue, weil er ansonnsten echt Top ist.

Guter Multimediaplayer mit miserablen Laufwerk :-((

Andy, Amazon
3 November 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe den Player eben getestet, von der externen Platte spielt er alles tadelos ab. Doch sobald ich eine Scheibe eingelegt habe, fängt ein nervtötendes fipsen an, das offenbar von dem billigen Laufwerk. Ich hatte schon einiges über den Player gelesen, unter anderem auch das mit dem Laufwerk, ich dachte das kann so schlimm doch nicht sein, glaubt mir es ist so nervtötend das ich nach 20min Avatar wieder ausgemacht habe ...!!!

Laufwerk zu laut

ErichS., Amazon
8 September 2010
  • Summary: Was nützt es, wenn das Laufwerk eine Super-Audio-CD (SACD) lesen kann, das Laufwerk aber so deutliche Geräusche abgibt, dass bei leisen Musikpassagen diese deutlich wahrnehmbar sind? Wer - wie ich - das Gerät also auch zum Abspielen von Audio-CDs (bzw. SACDs) verwenden will und entsprechende Musik hört, sollte es bei Amazon oder einem anderen Händler kaufen, bei dem eine problemlose Rückgabe möglich ist. Denn vielleicht hatte ich ja nur ein Montagsgerät...
