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: "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.
Summary: Use it daily to watch content on Netflix and previously purchased episodes and movies from Amzn. The only trouble I've had with any online service were a couple interruptions on Crackle during episodes of some classic TV shows.
Pros: Access to Netflix, Amzn VOD, Crackle, Pandora. Quick Start-up even without activating the quick start-up feature that uses more power. Wonderful UI. Easy software update that didn't require me to download content to my pc, then move it to a flash drive, then to the player. Instead, a prompt appea...
Cons: Somewhat loud drive mechanism. Poor Netflix application that doesn't allow for browsing of titles outside of the queue. Requires a PIN on every Amzn VOD purchase.
Summary: For all those people out there who can't decide which Blu-Ray to get as their first...GET THIS ONE! Its cheap, easy to setup, easy to use and offers quality on par with the more expensive models! If u just want to improve your home-theatre or TV/DVD setup...this will do the trick!

Summary: The level of satisfaction one derives from a product like the Sony BDP-S370 probably depends on one's expectations and intended usage. I bought this device just after Christmas after seeing it priced the same as the "new" small form-factor Apple TV.
Summary: Sony's BD-S370 is a very light weight machine. While it seems fragile the proof is in the using. Thus far every disc we've watched has had excellent picture quality and the surround decoding is just as good.

Another Con is I tried to connect a HD to the back of this via USB and it didn't work. after investigation it is related to the type of hard drive which is NTFS not fat.. sys...
