Summary: Blu ray player had piece of the back panel BROKEN when I recieved it. Was underneath the bubble wrap and therefore MOST likely not due to shipping. It's on the back so no one sees it, but what a dissapointment.
Summary: I've had this device since February. It started out working fine. It took a couple of tries to connect it to my wireless modem (finally had to do it manually). The boot up speed is pretty slow but you can make it a little faster by following the set up menu instructions.
Pros: looks to be a great unit. have not tried it yet. it is a gift
Cons: why in the world do you ship a Blu-Ray player in a fedex box that is basically a sleeve on the box?! i sure hope this thing works. i have always had excellent service from newegg but i am really disappointed with this one! this is not fedex's fault. whoever shipped it is to blame
Summary: #1) check your TV if supports 24p output (24 progressive scan). The player is set to 24p by default. If your tv cannot support this, it will not be able to display Blu Ray content, but DVD content yes. You will need to manually switch 24p to 'Off' in the settings of the player.
Summary: I fondly remember the day of pulling a dvd player out of the box and plug-play it worked. That was the whole set up. Now, It seems there is a whole process to go through to set up a Blu-ray player. I can't understand why? shouldn't it just simply work out of the box?
Wired option works very well/Wireless cuts bandwidth by 75%

Summary: I would have given the player five stars if the wireless option had worked. The wireless option cut my 20mbps internet speed down to less than 4mbps. Using the wired output from my wireless Linksys/Cisco N-Gaming and Video adapter, an ethernet switch and a 25' ethernet cable running through four...
Summary: Sony's BDP-S390 Blu-ray/DVD/CD player works fine in most respects. But potential buyers should be aware of one unpleasant surprise: The player does NOT have a front panel display. That's right - no display at all.
Summary: I was up in the air about buying this or another roku for my bedroom TV. I bought this and I'm finding I would have preferred the roku. It's not horrible, I'm not sure if I'm going to try to return it yet. It's really painfully slow, though. The menus are laggy and buggy.
Summary: This is a good player. It can be connected to a PC monitor such the Acer S240HLbid 24'' via HDMI and via the coaxial digital output to an home cinema system (I have an old Kenwood KRF-V5090 with no HDMI plug). Its installation is straightforward and very easy - its use too.
It's OK - but disappointed with wireless connection

Summary: I'm a huge Sony fan and have many of their products - ranging from audio systems, cameras, video cameras et al. This is my first Blu-ray player - and I particularly liked the fact that the device was a wireless connection. My disappointment came during the set-up.
