OK Blu Ray player, cannot stream internet content reliably

Eric Hazen, Amazon
14 April 2014
  • Summary: As many others have reported, the ability to stream content from the internet using the built-in apps is very unreliable. It will often fail to connect at all, and when it does connect it will stop in the middle of a movie and will not reconnect. Sometimes power cycling helps.

Stopped working less than 3 months after purchase.

Max Requenes, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: Less than 3 months after purchasing, it froze with the tray open. It would not respond to the remote. After I unplugged it and plugged it back in, the tray retracted, but it would no longer play some Blu-Ray discs (believing them to be from the wrong region).

Freezes on Update, Won't Go Online Without Update

Adam, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: The player was great for 3 months, then Sony pushed a software update. Now it won't let me use any online content without the update and the player freezes when I attempt to update. After trying some suggestions from their tech support, Sony wants to exchange it with a refurbished model...

Player does not accomplish with what was offered.

Luis Diaz Soffia "alvar salvadorez", Amazon
8 January 2014
  • 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.
