Mostly Works, But....

D. Lewis, Amazon

  • Summary: The player says that it will automatically switch between regions. Wrong; manual switching only. The operating manual says nothing about multi-region operations; a mimeographed supplemental sheet provides instructions for that. The player automatically looks for firmware updates, but the mimeographed supplemental sheet says to ignore them (oops) at the very end of the full page troubleshooting guide (oops, again).

  • Summary: A lot of apps but no red box app that's was disappointing. All these other no name apps that 98% don't use. Anyway not bad though if ur just looking for simple bluray.

  • Summary: Purchased and could not get wireless portion to work. We spent hours with tech support at Sony and got different answers. Sony asked us to send back to them at our expense. We returned it to Walmart, and exchanged it. We had the same problem. We had just gotten a Net-Gear dual band wireless router. One tech at Sony said out router was too new to be supported. Hopefully Sony will fix with an update. Hardwired player and it works great. The remote is a little slow.

Not playing all dvds.

Robert, Amazon
21 April 2014
  • Summary: Got it to play international (specifically UK) watched 6 dvds of a 7 dvd set, would not play the seventh nor will it now play any even the ones I've watched. The only thing that has changed is that I clicked on an update. Tried everywhere to get it back, including reset to default, with no luck, this was 6 weeks into ownership. Other than this frustration I would have loved it. Anyone got any suggestions?

Flimsy, noisy, DVD playback could be much better

  • Summary: I got this Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray player as an exchange for a recently bought Panasonic DMP-BDT230EB which was failing after a month (you can read my review of the Panasonic separately). Looking at various ratings from review sites, it looked like a candidate for a good player. However, as soon as I put a 3D Blu-ray disc into it, the player ramped up the spin speed, and everything started to rattle and shake very badly.

Sehr entäuschend

Jens Kurps, Amazon
24 April 2014
  • Summary: Eigenwilliges Design, billiges Plastik-outfit. Ich hoffte mit einem Multinorm-Player Futurama ab Season 5 sehen zu können - herbe Enttäuschung. Auch das mitgelieferte HDMI Kabel war defekt. Die Versiegelung der Verpackung war beschädigt, das Gerät offenbar schon einmal entnommen worden. Die Menu Steuerung erzwingt die Copyright / FBI etc. Einblendungen anzusehen.

Gemischte Gefühle

DonnyDingDong, Amazon

  • Summary: Der Player ist vom technischen Standpunkt aus gesehen sehr gut, wenn man davon absieht, dass er nicht alle Formate streamen kann. Die Bildqualität ist sehr gut. Die Bedienung geht ebenfalls schnell und flüssig von der Hand. Was mich wirklich schockiert hat, ist die mieserable Verarbeitung und die wirlklich billige Materialqualität. Der Player besteht wirklich sogut wie nur noch aus Plastik das zudem Staub wie magisch und andauernd anzieht.

Nicht das was ich erwartet habe

Move, Amazon
31 July 2013
  • Summary: Der Player ist von der Optik eine reine Geschmacksache. Zur Technik ist folgendes zu sagen. Das Laufwerk ist nicht zu hören. Die Bildqualität ist ohne Makel aber der Klang ist unterirdisch schlecht. Ferner hat das Gerät zwar einen Internetzugang aber leider ist das Internetradio nicht offen sondern es werden nur die Sender empfangen welche von Sony geduldet werden. es ist keine vernünftige Suchfunktion vorhanden. Das Gerät wird umgehend ausgetauscht.
