Summary: Where to start? --It takes about forever to turn on or off and hangs half the time, flashing "wait" on the display.... --Streaming is a joke, it streams through Sony's servers, not directly to Netflix, so your video quality sucks depending on the speed and load of your local Sony servers.
Needed it to render DLNA. Hardly ever play disks on it.

Summary: This product does a good job as a DLNA client. Plays WAV and MPEG2 files from a DLNA server without difficulty. Performs better then more expensive DLNA devices and has the ability to actually play a Blu-Ray disk as a 'bonus'.
Summary: In addition to playing disks, we use to access Netflix, YouTube, etc. as well as accessing our home entertainment library of shows captured with our InfiniTV4 PCIe from Ceton. I am disappointed that the fast forward and reverse aren't better controlable with streaming media.
Summary: Has played all disks with no real problems. We had to cold-boot it one time to get it to play a disk, but that could have been the disk. It has a lot of options for connecting to on-line services and all stream very well.
Summary: This is the fourth DVD player and second Blu-Ray player I have owned. The first Blu-Ray player was an LG player with a 250Gig Hard Drive. This player will even play Blu-Rays that the LG doesn't. In fact, I've never encounted a disc (Blu-Ray or DVD) that this player does not play.
Summary: We got this to help us stream Netflix because the Wii remote is too difficult to work with on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the software in the Sony blu ray players isn't very good at streaming. It paused constantly to load. We finally just got a Roku box and are much happier.
