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.
An expensive DVD palyer that is not a capable Multi-Region machine for Blu-Rays.

Summary: This is an expensive player and I was expecting stellar results - but have been very disappointed. Plays region 1 DVD and Region 1/A BR discs well. Plays Region 2 DVDs well, but fails almost completely with Region 2/B BRs.
Summary: Received as a Xmas present 2013. Smart, functional and able to cope with anything needed. Used on Netflicks, B rays USB stick photo slideshow. Only 2 stars however as it has simply died after 14 months.
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.
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.
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.
