Solid Blu-ray player, nothing else

Matthew H., Newegg
10 February 2011
  • Summary: Bottom line, if you need a Blu-ray player, it does a fine job, but if you are looking for a network media streamer look elsewhere
  • Pros: Very easy to set up, intuitive XMB menu, loads Blu-ray quickly and plays AVCHD discs
  • Cons: Sony's DLNA implementation is very limited, more so even than that PS3. While it will play .mp3 and photos from my MediaSmart server, it refuses to recognize any video files at all.

Careful about DLNA - nothing like the PS3

Anonymous, Newegg
17 July 2010
  • Summary: I have 7 DLNA servers - serving 15TB of content to 2 PS3's, and 2 WD-Live box's. I never have DLNA trouble with them. This player will not accept connections from any of the 7 servers - claiming they are either not DLNA compliant, or they need to be reconfigured (- but work great with my PS3's) One...
  • Pros: Great at things OTHER than DLNA. If you don't know/care about DLNA, this is a very nice machine.
  • Cons: Does not support DLNA at anywhere near the same level as the PS3 - don't buy this thinking it will service DLNA like your PS3 - it won't. I've yet to have it play any DLNA content - and I have lots of working DLNA on my home network. I imagine I can force it to work with my Media Player devices -...

I would keep searching.

John M., Newegg
10 July 2010
  • Summary: I did not purchase this at Newegg. I wish I had, because I would have read reviews on Blu-Ray players that worked better. I think the Netflix movie / tv list could be organized better.
  • Pros: Its small, connects to the internet, connects to Netflix. Its fine as a DVD / Blu-Ray player. I don't have complaints there. I primarily use it to watch Netflix.
  • Cons: WI-FI ready or whatever marketing they used is a bit misleading. No where that could see on the package said you had to purchase an additional Sony WI-FI device to get this working. Second, this device crashes ALL THE TIME. Maybe I got a bad one? I don't know. But at least a few times a week I ha...

Firmware update killed my HDMI

Mr. M., Newegg
6 July 2010
  • Summary: The same thing happened with my PS3 and now my Sony BDP-S470. My thoughts are that the 3D update is causing a handshake issue with my Hitachi Ultravision. I have my DirecTV and my Xbox 360 hooked up with HDMI with no problems.
  • Pros: I absolutely loved this player until the 3D update.
  • Cons: I get a message that an update is available, so I download it and now my HDMI will not work. When I first turn it on I get a Sony screen then everything goes black, I only have a 1080i compatible TV so I know I can run component but I want HDMI for upconverting my other DVDs. I return the player ...

nice picture and features, but....

Amazon
2 May 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this Blu-ray player for the up-scaling of DVDs and the Netflix streaming, as I don't have any BD media at this time. The good: we were all impressed with the quality of the picture when up-scaling DVDs. The picture was very good with few artifacts.

Broken network connection, so 2 stars

Michael Patterson, Amazon
19 April 2010
  • Summary: ** UPDATE 04-29-2010 ** Sony Repair found nothing wrong with my unit, so they shipped it back to me... without the original box (just wrapped in bubble wrap). I plugged it in, and tried to stream a movie (that I had just watched on my XBox two days earlier), and it froze after downloading about a...

Was ist das für ein Laufwerk? Grausames gepfeife

derimmerfreundliche, Amazon
12 February 2011
  • Summary: Über die Eigenschaften dieses Gerätes braucht man nichts mehr schreiben, ist ja bereits alles beschrieben worden. Aber dieses gepfeife vom Laufwerk bei Blu-ray abspielen, ist wirklich absolut GRAUSAM. Wie kann Sony, der Vorreiter der Blu-ray, so ein NO GO produzieren.

Toller Klang, Bedienung eine Zumutung - oder: "Musik in schwarz/weiss"

D. Cosic, Amazon
26 January 2011
  • Summary: Zunächst mal die Abgrenzung: diese Rezension bewertet NICHT die Video-Fähigkeiten des Players. Ich habe einen Universalplayer als zeitgemäßen Ersatz für meinen betagten Sony DVP-NS700V gesucht. Wichtig waren für mich also vor allem auch die Audio-Eigenschaften, und um die geht es hier.

User Review

1 January 2011
  • Excerpt: На сайте производителя написано, что данный проигрыватель может воспроизводить файлы в формате MKV. Данная информация мягко говоря не соответствует действительности. Проигрыватель не воспроизводит данные файлы не с диска не с флешки. Обновление прошивки до последней версии ничего не изменило.
  • Pros: Отлично показывает с BD как обычные фильмы BD. DVD так и фильмы в формате 3D.
  • Cons: Не показывает фильмы в формате MKV, не видит диски и флешки в формате NTFS.

Schade

mille, Amazon
23 December 2010
  • Summary: Ich war mir nicht sicher, wie ich ihn bewerten sollte. Bild, Zugriffzeiten, Funktionen, Ton ect. fand ich alles sehr gut und ansprechend (5Sterne). Was aber wirklich gar nicht geht ist das Laufwerksgeräusch. Es hat ja schon der ein oder andere davon geschrieben.
