Summary: I don't like it as much as I thought I would. The case is attractive and smaller and less substantial than I expected. I don't like the fact that it doesn't have control buttons on the case (aside from power and open). The remote is small, so it tends to get lost easily. Functionally, it's mostly adequate.
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. My other unit is on wifi and this one is downstairs hard wired to the router and is quite a bit slower than the other one. I don't own a 3D TV yet, just wanted it as a just in case Santa brings me a new TV.
Summary: It's a fine player for DVD's but, if you want to find something to watch via the Internet, good luck. I find myself going around in endless circles. For instance, I wanted to watch a program from PBS.org and finally found what I wanted. But when playing it, I couldn't get the screenshot to full view. The picture was very small and not enjoyable to watch. I admit, I'm a little technically challenged (I'm over 50). Younger folks could probably do better.
FLV and 12 volt and price were worth the purchase, but...

Summary: I have a couple of BDPS-590 units, which I preferred because of the optical and coax sound outputs and for the RCA outputs and two USB connections, but apparently they can't offer RCA with new units. I had trouble with streaming netflix at home, but it was in close proximity to my 590 unit. I'm at my daughter's for Christmas, and it streams fine here, so there must be some sort of conflict between this and the 590.
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.
The Sony Blu-Ray player only has about 100 apps. Where the Roku-3 has 1500+ apps.

Summary: Works fine, The only cons I have is that is has only a few limited apps and some of the apps load very slowly. Like the YouTube app loads very slowly. However I do have a Roku-2 also and the YouTube app loads very slow on the Roku also. If you want a DVD/Blu-Ray player with Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, etc. Then this is an inexpensive route to take. Remote is easy to use and DVD's / Blu-Rays load quickly. I have had not problems with the Blu-Ray player.
