Summary: All of the reviews I read regarding lengthy waiting period for blu ray movies to load is totally right. I took almost a minute from the time I turned the player on, loaded the disc and pressed play. Other than that I am totally satisfied with this machine even though it is almost years old.
Summary: I HAVE OWNED THIS UNIT FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND 1/2 NOW AND KNOW OF TWO OTHERS IN OPERATION FOR ABOUT THE SAME DURATION. THE UNIT IS SLOW TO LOAD, I'LL HAVE TO GIVE THE OTHER COMPLAINERS THAT, BUT ONCE YOU GET OVER THE INITIAL WAIT PERIOD, (GO DO SOMETHING ELSE UNTIL THE BEAST IS READY) THE OUTPUT IS...
Summary: Actually purchased blu-ray player with sony card reward points. Worked fine without any issues, until recently. Player would shut down once movies started from the menu screen and was a compatibility issue with new blu-ray disc versions and the DTS-HD.
Summary: I have had this player for about a week now. I was vacillating between the S500 and the S350, but after reading countless reviews, I decided to go with the newest model hoping that Sony was able to work out all the kinks and bugs that came with the previous units.
Summary: I purchased this player along with a KDL-46XBR Sony tv. The combination is quite wonderful. My initial review was shortly after purchase, and now I've had the unit about four months. I'm still very pleased with the unit's performance.
