Works but streaming can be a bit inconsistent.

Nate, Amazon
7 April 2012
  • Summary: Player works perfectly on Blu Rays videos and has access to all the latest, greatest, apps. I took away a star because I seem to have some inconsistencies with steaming Netflix. I use a cable modem and never had this issue before when streaming from my XBox. I'm updated to the latest firmware, so I know that is not a possible issue. I gave 4/5 stars because I am not sure if this is a problem with Netflix's Sony application or with the BluRay player itself.

Sony Blu Ray player

Richard, Amazon
20 January 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this Sony Blu Ray player to see what, if any, improvements had been made in blu ray players. My first blu ray player (Panasonic) is 3 years old and still a good player, but the new Sony is ever better.The menu system provides more info and the included apps are a plus.I did not buy this player for the on-line apps, but of the few that I have used have some nice features.I also use this player to play cd's and for this, it does a better job than my other...

blu-ray

William R. King "Cootiebrown", Amazon

  • Summary: The player was delivered well. It works correctly and was delivered within a reasonable amount of time, but it came with no owner's manual or user's guide. Nothing. I had to figure it out on my own. If there's a problem I don't know what I'm going to do. It seems like about every other time recently when I've purchased something from you, there seems to be some kind of odd problem. I like Amazon, but for some reason these situations have been occurring. Thank you, W.R.

Sony Blu Ray - Is Incredible

Ramspak "Ramspak", Amazon
11 October 2011
  • Summary: The Sony Blu Ray DVD with internet TV is well worth having. The picture quality is good, setup is easy and having the internet access right on my TV is worth the extra few bucks you may pay for it. So far, no problems at all.

Good bang for your buck, but not without bugs

pro-metheus, Amazon
28 September 2011
  • Summary: Generally I'm satisfied with the model, it's feature-rich and does what it's supposed to do. However I think in the scramble to add so many streaming services Sony might have cut corners on software testing. So there are a few issues I've observed and note below. Disc play Picture and sound lived up to my expectations, though since I'm using a smaller (26") hdtv and lack a surround sound system that may not be helpful praise.

Excellent player

B. Burchfield, Amazon
5 August 2011
  • Summary: I've had this player for a couple of weeks and am loving it. Load times are plenty fast, even with "fast start up" disabled in settings. Haven't had any problems with streaming video. There's a HUGE selection of sources to stream video from. If you're a Prime member you'll love all the freebies from Amazon's Video on Demand.

Excellent if expensive

CrunchyCookie, Amazon
20 June 2011
  • Summary: This bottom-of-the-barrel Sony Blu-ray player leaves me pleased. Blu-ray movies of course come out pristine, but just as important, it makes DVDs look exceptionally sharp (by DVD standards). The remote is nice and small and well laid-out, the back panel has coaxial audio + component video + HDMI + 2 USB + ethernet (the only change from last year's BDP-S370 is the now-missing optical audio jack). Finally, the Blu-ray slowness epidemic has been improved -- sort of.

Happy Thus Far

C. Swere, Amazon
6 May 2011
  • Summary: For the three or four weeks I've had the unit I've been very happy. This is a great Blu-ray player for the price. I love the internet capabilities. There's a lot of channels to choose from, although I probably won't use most of them. All I cared about was Hulu, Netflix, and Pandora. The only issue's Ive had thus far is playing regular DVD's. It seems as though it takes longer for the player to recognize DVD's.

A good Blu-Ray player

C. Capell "cfour33", Amazon
18 April 2011
  • Summary: First, This is a Wired Blu-Ray player. If you need Wi-Fi, I would suggest looking at the Sony BDP-S580 Blu-ray Disc Player (Black) instead. It's basically the same Blu-Ray player, but has built in Wi-Fi. This is a good, basic Blu-ray player that will be perfect for most people. The streaming works great from multiple sources such as Amazon, Netflix, and Hulu Plus, in addition to many more that I haven't tried yet.

Super BluRay player at affordable price

Gee Eng, Amazon
8 April 2011
  • Summary: Selected this BluRay unit based on price and online streaming capability for Netflix. Definitely not disappointed. Great picture quality for both BlueRay and Netflix. Some minor complaints resulting in 4 stars instead of 5. Streaming with wifi requires proprietary Sony adapter that cost $79. On Netflix, can only view those movies placed into the "Instant Queue" with your computer - if there is a way to select Netflix movies from the tv, I have not found it.
