great features, but annoying glitches

Kevin Finch, Amazon
26 March 2015
  • 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.

Very limited "smart" features

Marco Mora R "Marco Mora R", Amazon
5 December 2014
  • 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.

Ok DVD player

AG, Amazon
2 December 2014
  • 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 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.

There are lots of sites to enjoy watching shows

Jose Ortiz, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: There are lots of sites to enjoy watching shows, but I wanted it for my HBOGO.com and that site is not supported by the player. Kindof defeats the purpose for me. All in all a good product.

Crash and burn

Jacob Bleth, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • 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...
