Summary: This player sometimes has trouble starting. I play a couple of DVD's per week and about 1 out of every 10 times it won't load. Have to unplug and restart sometimes more than once to get it going. I stream from both Hulu and Netflix.
Summary: I bought this to replace an S370 that was hard wired to my network and got fried in a recent lightning storm. My assumption is that it would at least have all the features of the S370. Well bad assumption.
Great Blu-ray player however the streaming needs help

Summary: I purchased this to replace an older blu-ray that had trouble commuinicating with my receiver. It was first gen and I couldn't wait but it still had some bugs. So far at playing discs this has been awsome, the sound and the picture quality couldn't be better.
Summary: i bought this product so i could enjoy 720p & 1080p Blu-Ray content from it through the USB port in the back and upscale some DVD's to HD. It was a bit of a let down that it didnt play files bigger than 4GB, it happily supports NTFS but will not play some MKV's which is disappointing.
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...
Pros: connect to lovefilm to watch movies .
Cons: needs a network adapter costing over £50 . 00 to be wireless .
Summary: I bought this mainly for the internet capabilities (specifically LoveFilm). The player is easy to use, although the menus appear necessarily complicated. The available films on LoveFilm are different to this on-line, which is annoying.
Summary: The DVD player itself is fine and the standard Sony region tweaks work on it which was a plus. The LoveFilm streaming suport is, however, not so clever. I had movies hang after an hour, others wouldn't start, it seemed to consistently fall over, lock up and require a power off/on.
Summary: Bought this for my daughter. Have not really used it enought to rate the player's quality. However one thing that I feel a little deceived over is the wi-fi connection - hence the rating. I assumed that this was already included in the blue-ray player. IT IS NOT !.
Summary: Unfortunately had to return mine due to a high pitched whine noise coming from the unit when playing Blu Rays. The noise changed in pitch depending on where it was in the film, and didn't appear to be resonance etc.
