Read product description carefullly.

  • Summary: This blue ray player works great and the price is very fair. The only problem I had was that you are lead to believe that everything is included to watch movies or listen to music from your P.C. You still need to purchase a Sony adapter to pick up the wifi signal.

Excellent Bluray & SACD playback

H. Campo, Amazon
17 March 2011
  • Summary: One thing should be made perfectly clear about the Sony BDP-S470: This machine is "WIFI ready". It does not come with internal or external wireless capability unless you buy the Sony external wireless adapter, which sells for $80. The 470 does have an Ethernet jack which allows for a wired internet connection, however.

Good Reliable Blu-Ray Payer

Careful Consumer, Amazon
12 March 2011
  • Summary: O.K. ,This purchase was going to be my 2nd Blu-Ray Player buy. My first Blu-ray player was the Sony S-350 and I wanted to upgrade for the video Streaming feature. This S470 does that. Set -up was easly (Make sure you update to the current software version). There are lots of internet video programming available; and Sony seems to be adding more programming every few weeks. (Some programming is free, some require a subscription).

A good replacement

A book reader, Amazon
12 March 2011
  • Summary: My BDS-300 died, and it was so slow it was time to replace it anyway. This unit is fast to load, and I like the reduced functionality remote, as I've got universal remotes and don't need a 100 buttons to sort through. Only negative is that the unit seems so cheap compared to earlier models.

A Great Player but has some flaws.

Mark, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: I like this player. But, the issues are... It can freeze up while playing burned DVDs. It is EXTREMELY loud. In some cases, during a quiet scene in the movie, it sounded like I had a blender running. The Apps are slow and so is the boot up time. I unfairly compare it to my PS3 for picture quality or for the Netflix streaming. It doesn't have a Hard Drive so I need to remember that. For the money you can't really beat it. It also has Pandora too.

Initial Impressions and Comparison to Insignia NS-BDLIVE01

GC, Amazon
26 February 2011
  • Summary: Just upgraded from my Insignia NS-BDLive01 to the Sony BDP-S470. I received it within a few days of ordering it from Amazon. Pretty proud of my purchase. Other than some annoying quirks, the player provides a lot of additional functionality, better performance, at a quicker speed. Haven't had time to thoroughly test it yet, but after 24 hours, here are some quick observations after hooking it to a 60-inch Sony LED-LCD HDTV (KDL-60EX700): The Good: - Don't know about the...

Solid Blu-Ray Player, Very Minor Flaws

Zach, Amazon
30 December 2010
  • Summary: I spent a lot of time researching for the "perfect" Blu-Ray player. What I've found is that there really is not one. Like anything else, each one has its own strengths and weaknesses. What I did know was my price point - $100 to $130ish. What I found based on reviews on this site and others is that all around, this is the best player for my needs. Let me say up front, probably to the chagrin of some, I was not interested in a player that streamed.
