Highly recommended

Kenneth C., Newegg
5 August 2010
  • Summary: Played Planet Earth and other Discovery Bluray disks and it's stunning. I have it connected to Ethernet, with wireless LAN setup too as backup. Works great. My house has Comcast business class cable modem service which is typically 10 Mbps or better.
  • Pros: Bluray playback is very clear. Starts the playback very fast. Netflix streaming works great. We use this feature more than any other probably. Seems to upscale non Bluray DVDs well. Setup was straightforward.
  • Cons: Can't add titles to Netflix cue from the Bluray Remote control provided by Sony is pretty basic Setting up Sony.com account was awkward and took multiple steps and multiple websites.

Regretted purchasing

MICHAEL F., Newegg

  • Summary: There are other players out there... if I had to do it all over again, I'd start somewhere else. If you plan on watching Netflix, consider ANYTHING else.
  • Pros: Loads very quickly. Bluray discs play very well.
  • Cons: I imagine the reason most people purchase this model is because of the internet connectivity. I bought this model for my Mom as a Mother's Day gift, because she watches Netflix all the time and I figured she'd take advantage of the streaming. The bluray disc I bought her looked great, but for som...

No Streaming option

  • Summary: What a waste of money and time. This player does not stream any online video from popular commerical services like Amazon Video-On-Demand, Netflix extra. Why Sony have wireless if that is of no use other then BD live.

  • Pros: Plays Blu-ray with the best quality converter. Has HDMI and optical audio. Extra format capabilities are convenient for other media, such as audio and downloaded videos. Wireless works great.
  • Cons: Takes about an hour to update at first install. Does not support Netflix or other major streaming providers. One of the biggest and heaviest players.

Awesome Blu Ray Player

Dominic C., Newegg
26 April 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this at sears for $159.99 2 weeks ago. It was the best deal and nabbed one. Never had any problem connecting to my wireless router. The software update took a few minutes and everything still works perfectly. Dont hesitate to buy this.
  • Pros: Loads at decent times. Looks great and performs like it should. Upconverts Regular dvds to 720p. 1080p movies look AMAZING, hands down the best.
  • Cons: Didn't buy it at newegg this time which is rare.

Excellent Blu so far...

  • Summary: I ordered the BDP-S550 but Electronics Expo sent me this S560 one instead! The setup was quick and easy, I was able to watch blu ray movies in no time...It even played SD dvd movies better than my Panasonic S77. If the S550's made in Japan the S560's made in Malaysia, if it matters to some.

First Blu-ray and it's wireless

Mark G., Amazon
18 April 2010
  • Summary: This is my first blu-ray player I have ever bought and after doing extensive research I focused on the 560. The reason I narrowed down to this one was because it has built in wireless and therefore I don't have to worry about connecting to my computer through an ethernet cable and due to always...

  • Summary: This blu-ray player has been a charm so far. Very easy to setup and use. The network features are great and the device automatically went out and updated it's own firmware right off the bat.

Supreme quality, no streaming (but would I use it ?)

Kyle Robert Mcgaw, Amazon
24 March 2010
  • Summary: I own a 60" DLP, and the tv's definition is great, but with this big jumbo-tron I started to compare the hi-def cable quality to the dvd pixels, and I saw the quality of picture I could have with a blu-ray player.
