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. After spending an hour and a half with Sony tech support I was told it does not have DLNA support so I can't watch photos or play music that is on my PC. You can plug a flash drive in the front of the player and see your photos.
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. The load time is much faster than with the older players. If you're looking for streaming then I think we need to give these guys a couple more years to work out the bugs.
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. This product does well to compare with others, it has NTFS, which alot of players dont yet.
Excerpt: "...instructions that you need a Sony UWABR100 network adapter to access Wi-Fi, and that costs another £56.97. I had bought this because I had wanted to access my Love film account through it wirelessly. So this frustrated me, nowhere did it say that I would require this, I assumed that if one was needed I could purchase a cheaper version dongle for 10-15 pound but when the instructions specified a particular item I was dubious of buying any other item ...
Pros: connect to lovefilm to watch movies .
Cons: needs a network adapter costing over £50 . 00 to be wireless .
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. It looks like a software issue to me.
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 !. You have to buy a USB wi-fi dongle, unless you want to connect by ethernet cable.
Summary: A blu-ray and DVD player of reasonable quality. No major complaints as such, but... 1. All over the Internet, including the seller I purchased from, it's written that the DVD side is multi region. This was the main reason I bought it. It's not multi region. Not in the slightest. It requires hacking, like all the others. 2.
Summary: Otimo aparelho , qualidade de som e imagem excelentes !
Pros: Qualidade de imagem ,som sao excelentes ,conectividade , nao é muito grande ,enfim pelo preço esta bom !
Cons: O que mais me decepcionou, é que nao tem o canal netflix ,embora tem muitos canais como sbt, band ,youtube , mas tem varios canais estrangeiros que é dispensavel,tambem o controle tem a tecla volume mais so serve se a tv for sony, tirando isso o aparelho é otimo
Summary: Dieser Player funktioniert genauso wie man es von jedem Gerät dieser Art erwarten würde, also wäre es überflüssig die einzelnen Funktionen zu beschreiben. Was wichtig ist, ist die Ausgabe von Bild und Ton. Die ist einwandfrei. Ich vergebe nur drei Sterne, weil das Laufwerk bei eingelegtem Blu-ray Disk laut pfeift und vom Geschehen ablenkt. Sehr schade. Eigentlich inakzeptabel.
Summary: Wollte eigentlich den Vorgänger S370 kaufen, den gab es nicht mehr, also habe ich mich für den Nachfolger entschieden. Aber warum ist DLNA nicht mehr dabei? Damit ich den teureren und für mich unsinnigen S480 mit 3D kaufen muss?
