Summary: I purchased this DVD player because I wanted a multi region Blu Ray and DVD player. And the one I received only plays Región A Blu Ray and does not play any Pal disc neither DVD nor Blu Ray. Furthermore it is not Dual Voltage. I really feel that I was cheated. I am an old customer of Amazon and never have had such a deception.
Summary: This is the second region free Blu Ray Player I've purchased. Neither machine worked for very long. This one started out well, but the region had to be reset every time I used it. On its second day it spazzed out in the middle of playing a disc and went to static. Turning it off and on again resolved the problem, but it repeated a short time later. I'm done buying devices like this via the internet.
Excerpt: If you want to have a DVD player for only 3-4 months , then you can get this one. After 3-4 months all apps will stop working ( netflix, hulu+ ,youtube, etc.) . Sony tech support was no help at all. Sony knows about this problem and they are not able to fix it. Probably my last SONY product.
Excerpt: I have had the player for five months. I have yet to get it to play without pausing, skipping or update firmware, both DVD's and online video. I like the options and functions available, but if the unit does not work, how good is it?
Didn't Work - No Response From Sony Customer Service
13 August 2013
Summary: I bought one of these directly from Sony (the price was a bit cheaper than Amazon). It arrived promptly, but on connecting it up, there was no picture. The front panel on the unit came to life, displaying messages, but that was all. I'd initially connected it via my AV amp, but I also tried it directly to the TV with a different HDMI cable and that was no better. Both cables tried work fine with other devices.
Summary: anfangs war ich sehr zufrieden, bis das letzte update kam. Seitdem hängt sich der Player bei Maxdome komplett auf und ich muss den Stecker ziehen, dass ich den Schrott wiederbeleben kann. Kontakte mit dem Support von Maxdome und Sony brachten, wie es eigentlich zu erwarten war, nichts. Ich war immer der Meinung, ein update wäre eine Verbesserung, nein, updates unbedingt vermeiden.
