Excellent purchase.

  • Summary: I agree, this player is slow, especially when playing Blu-Ray disc. I have BDP-S1000ES, BDP-S2000ES & DVP-S7000, therefore this one fits right in. It will be playing primarly the standard DVD and occassional Blu-Ray. The front doors on the S7000 & S500 very simular movement.

  • Summary: Sony BDP-S500 1080p Blu-Ray Disc Player is the best investment that I have made to support my CD/DVD collection. Using Blu-Ray DVD'S the picture feels 3D, picture is WOW. Using regular DVD'S the picture conversion is incredible.

Great equipment

  • Summary: Has great sound, fantastic picture,very easy to hook up just 1 HDMI cord.Already had an up grade that was easy to get off of Sony's site or they will send you a cd free. It also plays all my other standard dvd's and I have over 500 dvd's I recorded myself and so far it plays them all and even upgrades them all to near HD picture. I also have a Sony bds300 on my upstairs system. I recommend these blu-ray players to every one.

  • Summary: I guess I would have to use to a magnifying glass and get real close to tell the difference between a Blu-Ray and HD-dvd. First I figure I'll let the movies decide....as in which format has the better films....yes films, not movies....there is no need to see Big Mama's House in high definition. Honestly...Do you really need to see all the hairs on Rattatoui's butt?
