Excerpt: My family has owned this blu-ray player now for about a year. My husband did all of the research before purchasing this blu-ray player and it seems to be one of the highest quality players. In fact, my husband loves it so much that he purchased an identical one for our home theater system. I can't speak about all of the technical features so my review is based on what I expect a blu-ray player to do. That is, play movies.
Excerpt: I am not as impressed with this blu-ray player as I thought I would be. As an owner of a 52" Pioneer Elite Plasma TV and Klipsch sound system, we thought this would be a great addition to our media room. We were sadly disappointed in the problems with this machine. We've had TONS of movies freezing up on us even after we updated the firmware 2x. The picture is nice, but not as nice as we thought it would be.
Summary: Got this free from Amazon with my purchase of a Sony LCD. Here are my observations: I've used the blu-ray a handful of times and although the audio and video are great, it isn't THAT much of an improvement to 5.1 and upconverted video (just my non-professional opinion) One thing I'm not too crazy about is soon after recieving this, Sony came out with their Wi-Fi series. These are basically the exact same units only with WiFi capability.
Summary: Das Gerät liefert wie von anderen hier schon erwähnt ein phantastisches Bild und vermittelt einen bombastischen Sound ( über Heimkinoanlage ) wie im kino . Sehr störend ist , dass man den Player bei JEDER neuen DVD neu programmieren muss . Er kann auch keine selbstgebrannten CDs oder DVDs lesen .Dieses wurde auch schon von Anderen hier reklamiert. Man kann also eigentlich für ein Gerät in dieser Preisklasse mehr erwarten .
