This Device Incorporates ALL of the Hollywood of Mandated Anti-Consumer Features.
4 July 2015
Summary: This device incorporates ALL of the Hollywood of mandated anti-consumer features. Has NO analog outputs. Has Cinavia DRM and HDMI with HDCP. Cinavia works to prevent ALL copying via the detection of a watermark recorded into the analog audio of media such as theatrical films and Blu-ray Discs.
Summary: This Sony blu-ray player is just ok. Seems like it does a lot. I like the wifi with all the apps. Everything is arranged thoughtfully, and is easily accessible. Starts up quickly too, which I've heard is not always the case with some of its competitors. What I don't like is its glitchy operation.
I will give it some props on being aesthetically pleasing as it looks wonderful. The app menus take forever to load

Summary: I also own the non 3D version of this too, the 3200 model, and this one seems to be ALOT slower. I will give it some props on being aesthetically pleasing as it looks wonderful. The app menus take forever to load.
Summary: As a Blue ray player it is great. The smart capabilities, are kind of limited due to low processing speed. Internet browsing is really slow and hard to use. Just navigating thru a simple web page is a real pain. So, again, if you need a player is great, period.
Summary: This is good player but needs lots of improvements. Powering down is an ordeal. It takes several attempts to shut down. The on/off LED is so tiny that it is hard to see. The setup is super easy and the unit works good.
Playback is okay, but there are still issues even with the new irmware.

Summary: Bought this over the Thanksgiving Holiday. Hooked it up (wired - 100Mbps internet connection). Turned it on and NOTHING. Power light was on and tv said no signal. Tried the power button and nothing. Unplugged the power and ethernet.
The older models performed as good as the new model

Summary: The first Sony Blue Ray Player that I purchased was BDP-S580. Its HDMI connection is rarely work, but I still have component and digital audio output for playback backup. My second player was BX510, its HDMI is still not reliable, but at least works most of time, regretfully, we do not have...
Summary: I had a giant review written that I scrapped. After my 3rd call to sony support....and it took over an hour...Problem was netflix would not respond and take up to 2 minutes to load. Ill get to the answer-set your dns 220.127.116.11 and secondary dns 18.104.22.168. Here is the big secret sony wont tell you.
Summary: When selecting star amounts, three stars or "It's okay" really does accurately describe this product. In the end, it's a reasonably priced but mediocre device. The biggest reason for my disappointment has to do with performance: The system is sluggish when browsing content and crashes...
