Summary: Had the device for year and a half , loved it. Never even hooked it up to the Internet. It started to freeze blurays than not even load them a yer and a half later. Sony support said it was fried. Played DVD s fine great upgrade with them.
Summary: Once set up, this works flawlessly. Instruction manual needs to state that if this player is to be used for 3D, the setup needs to be set to 1080p (HDMI). The error messages said either my player or TV were not 3D capable. Tried contacting Sony. Couldn't get thru to support (normal for Sony).
Summary: Bought this after my last player kept breaking. So this has been a revelation for me. It works well, loads well, and I plugged in to my wired connection and it works like a champ. Though they want you to buy the wirelss, I saw no need works just was well wired. There are tons of lines coming out of it anyway so it wasn't going to be streamlined no matter what I did so it worked well.
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.
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.
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).
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.
