Vendor switch

Frederick W Link, Amazon
16 October 2012
  • 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.

Misleading

Shunli l., Newegg
27 January 2011
  • Pros: I found this blu ray player on sale and its pretty nice. It has the PS3 dashboard which I am used it.
  • Cons: I purchased it for my father in law thinking it could connect to his wifi and do netflix. Then I realized all it had was an ethernet jack and you had to buy the adapter. Come on, how much does it cost to snap a WIFI chip into the MB, $3?

Not quite what it should be

Anonymous, Newegg
14 December 2010
  • Summary: If you were fooled by the term WiFi Ready, shame on you. If you buy the SONY WiFi Adpater - double shame on you. Run a network cable or buy a cheap router to use as an adapter.
  • Pros: Netflix (from pre-selected queue) Pandora, YouTube. Price also good - if it was as advertised.
  • Cons: dlna - support is spotty depending on the server you use, but the biggest issue is you can't randomly play the music you have stored on your home PC or server using this device - BIG FAIL. Come on SONY - FIX IT! Also limited video formats a big looser here.

Good Player

Brian R., Newegg
6 December 2010
  • Summary: Unlike everyone else reviewing this player, I completely feel for those that were deceived by the blatently misleading "Wifi Ready" label. For those unaware, "Wifi Ready" exactly means that the device does not, in any way, shape, or form contain wifi, nor is it any more "ready" for wifi than any...
  • Pros: Good quality playback (both bluray & streaming). Tons (and I do mean tons) of web applications supported. I was pleasantly surprised when playing around with the NPR app to discover that "Wait, Wait...don't tell me" was in the extensive list of streaming podcasts available. Really, I've had tons ...
  • Cons: Most of the apps have a rather half-baked interface. Example, netlfix gives you access to your user queue, nothing more. Even the wii offers menus containing new releases, "movies like ...", etc. You'll see none of that here. Pandora & slacker both work well, but again, they lack the basic functi...

Streaming - better than most

Dev Laur, Amazon
1 December 2010
  • Summary: All players play discs very well, Samsung is on the bottom though for upscaling DVD's. My review is more about streaming video and applications. I tried Panasonic units and Samsung, both a bit slow and clunky for streaming video and networking...NONE are refined.

Good player for the money, but buggy SACD support

Guidelines, Amazon
31 May 2010
  • Summary: I bought the BDP-S370 for two reasons. I wanted to play Blu-Rays for the their high-def audio (and picture, but more concerned about sound). I also liked the option of playing my SACDs (Super Audio CDs) on another machine. Blu-Ray ---------- Blu-Ray performance is excellent.

Wi-Fi Ready? Nope.

Gerald B., Newegg
5 April 2010
  • Pros: Blu-ray picture is perfect. Up-rez looks as good as it can.
  • Cons: The description of "Wi-Fi Ready" was misleading. It only can take a wireless connection using a Sony brand LAN adapter which run an extra $80. A dealbreaking discovery since I bought this because of it's internet video capabilities.

It play blu ray disks well

T. J. Wass "terry123456", Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: But as for other formats that you want to try on the USB port, it's a case of "Nope" for a lot of them. Get a newer, smaller, better one from Sony and you'll get a better deal.

  • Summary: The player gives a good quality picture and is very quiet. Nice and sleek and fits well withe the tv. The dvd drawer takes a very long time to open, so is very annoying.

good dvd and blu-ray.

  • Excerpt: II bought this item about a month ago from Amazon for £89.99 reduced from £149.00 and when reading the information online was under the impression that it would not need a dongle, even got my dad to read through it to see if I was reading it right, being a layman, however when it arrived it does...
