  • Summary: This is my first Blu-ray player. I will not buy another one by Sony. The picture darkens and lightens so much that when dark - you can barely see the picture. This occurs on discs, Netflix, and even during setups when you are only seeing the menu. Worse yet - the warranty, after 30 days, only provides a refurbished unit. I can hardly wait to see how bad that one will be. 3 Vizio TVs and not a single problem. Hopefully Vizio also makes players.

  • Summary: Item not as described on website. It was listed as having multiple outputs including composite and component video (RCA jacks). Actually has only 1 HDMI out. Also they sell the same item in the sore for $40 less than I paid. The only plus was I was able to return it to a store and they gave full refund. Still inconvenient.

Player does not accomplish with what was offered.

Luis Diaz Soffia "alvar salvadorez", Amazon

  • 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.

Buy an HDMI cable

William H., Newegg
30 December 2013
  • Summary: Nice and embarrassing when you give someone a gift of a TV and a Blue Ray player expecting the cable with the player only to have to rush to Best Buy to get a cable. The box even says an HDMI should be in the box. The manual says a HDMI should be in the box. $20 to Best Buy for a cable and a very embarrassed apology to the recipient of the gift.
  • Pros: Works great with Netflix, integrates with a Sony TV exceptionally well.
  • Cons: When you open the box, you have a device that has one video output... HDMI... as listed on the details. But that is all you get. You don't get a HDMI cable.

Don't Consider Purchasing This Item!

Bryon D. Stump, Amazon
26 December 2013
  • 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.

If you want to have a DVD ...

ergogov, brandsmartusa.com

  • 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.
