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. I'd actually love to get a second one to replace our old...
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. It easily...
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. Netflix...
The Sony Blu-Ray Play has lots of features, slow to respond
9 September 2012
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: One of the things I wanted for Christmas of course was a Blu ray player because I'm such a huge movie person. The Sony Blu ray player not only plays blu ray but up-scales regular DVD's as well. Many DVD up-scale players only play DVD's at a higher definition, but the Sony blu ray player does that AND plays Blu ray disks as well.
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. You basically just sit there, watch it and type in your...
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.
"Feature packed if you can pick it up for a few saw $$"
8 September 2011
Pros: -Online Streaming (for AMAZON among many others) not always easy to find it. -Small/compact design -Output DTS & Dolby HD sound -Great picture -Decent start up speed -adds a feature to look up data about the disc being played
Cons: -Not wireless (w/o buying a propriatery dongle) -Missing some popular apps; lacks the ability to upgrade/buy the missing. -LIGHT DOESN'T CHANGE FROM WHITE TO BLUE (like previous Sony BR players) when inserting and playing a Blu-ray disc
Summary: Great item with easy hook-up, but internet set-up was a little confusing. The biggest gripe about this product is that you have to buy a separate Wireless LAN in order to use it, when a LAN cable is not available. Other than that, hook it up to Netflix/Youtube, or listening to Pandora is really great, especially when hooked up to external speakers.
