Summary: I was upgrading a Panasonic blu-ray player (DMP-BDT300). I searched for quite a while for a good model at a good price. I could care less about 3D blu-ray, since I don't have a 3D set (wish this 3D fad would end…just leave it in the theaters). I decided on this Sony blu-ray due to its fast loading (most important to me), network stability, interface, and streaming apps).
Summary: My last 3 DVD players have been Sony and I thought it was time to get a Blu-ray player. I use it primarily to play DVD and Blu-ray discs. So far haven't done much streaming of movies from the cloud. Overall I'm pleased but have a few minor negatives. I am not comparing to competitor models (LG, Panasonic, Samsung). I was pleased with the HDMI cable from Amazon.
Summary: This Blu Ray seems to work just fine - now that I finally got it to work! It only connects with one HDMI cord, so it's rather difficult to mess that up. However, I kept getting a message on my TV "unable to find signal". I unplugged the HDMI cable and plugged it back in and tried all sorts of settings. It finally worked - but I'm not sure what I did different to get it to work!
Summary: lots of features for a reasonable price. set up was very easy following the on screen prompts. one problem so far with the unit freezing up when streaming a movie - had to power off everything including the wi-fi extender to get things working again
Summary: This player does indeed play several different regions of disc, both DVD and BluRay. It is marketed as all voltage, however the cord that comes hardwired into the player is a US only plug. Otherwise, no complaints.
Summary: This is my second Sony Blu-Ray. It was very easy to set up by connecting to my wireless router. i have used it to play Blu-ray discs and to stream Netflix. So far, it has performed well without any problems. My only criticism is the external design - the top is slightly angled, like a pyramid, and the controls are located on the top of the unit (not the front as most units).
Summary: This machine takes minutes to set up and has great menus and GUI interface.Apps galore but lacks the ability to stream from other devices on network or Wi-Fi. I was very disappointed thinking that this unit was a 5. I give it a 4 for lack of Sony Intel.
Summary: This was easy to install but had a few issues. I called the Sony support and was helped by a very nice fellow. We found that my issue was not with the player but with my Internet connection. I would recommend this product to my friends.
Summary: The Bluray side of this unit is simply un-questionable; it works as you would expect it to and proves to be a Sony product. Menus are easy to navigate and intuitive. The network side of the things can be a little complicated. One important thing, before registering any service on the unit please download the Sony TV Guide android app; it will make typing credentials so much easier!!!
