shipped with small piece broken

VoodooMan, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • 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.

Strike two

John P., Newegg
20 February 2013
  • Summary: Although it is not directly a problem with the player itself, I couldn't rate this higher than 3 stars because of newegg's logistics. My first purchase was a bad experience and I tried to stay away, until this deal popped up which was too good to pass up.
  • Pros: Although I purchased this unit refurbished, the functionality and overall use is exactly as advertised. This unit comes with built-in wi-fi, allowing it to have apps within the player. This was the main reason I opted for this player, as I would be able to watch blurays, stream netflix, prime, et...
  • Cons: The interface is basically the same as the PS3 so while I am extremely familiar with it, I have noticed quite a bit of lag. The on-screen keyboard layout is very annoying to use and I've given up on trying to use the browser a s not having a mouse or joystick makes navigating the screen very diff...

Shipping Review & Product Review

STEPHEN M., Newegg
11 January 2013
  • Summary: For how the product was shipped, I give a rating of 1 (poor). In the future, if I order a refurb from Newegg, I'll probably contact them to see how the product will be shipped. If it is questionable, like this product was, I will skip ordering it and continue looking.
  • Pros: Shipping Pros: None. Very Disappointed! Thankfully nothing was wrong with the player and everything was included. Product: For the price: great features; boots relatively quickly (even faster with the quick boot). Once got the connection to Sony's servers resolved (see below), updating the firmwa...
  • Cons: Shipping cons: As others have mentioned, the package was received unsecured. Thus my concern was that everything was included, which it was (note that for the refurb, batteries are not included). The other issue was with the packaging. The product was not packaged well to protect it from potentia...

Sony S390

Raman D., Newegg
20 December 2012
  • Summary: Very disappointed in Newegg, and as this was the first "large" electronic item that I purchased from them - I do not have enough trust to order from them again! More info - I asked that they replace it, because the price was great, instead they refunded the money.
  • Pros: Ordered the 390 as it was WIFI capable and I did not need the 3-D capability. Had plenty of built-in apps.
  • Cons: Unit arrived totally unprotected (in the OEM box only) and was delivered after quite a delay. Unfortunately had to send it back as it was dented! NewEgg wanted me to pay the $12 return shipping too because it was damaged during shipping - well, that'll happen if you don't protect it.

what kind of shipping is this?

Scott S., Newegg
7 December 2012
  • 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

Started out okay

Mistefye, Amazon
30 November 2012
  • 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.

Wired option works very well/Wireless cuts bandwidth by 75%

J. Brimelow, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • 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...

Takes some effort to get up and running

Robert Detroit, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • 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?

Mediocre, Prefer my Roku

Owen P, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • 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.

2 items to be aware of:

Listener, Amazon
2 November 2012
  • 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.
