Sony does not stand behind their product

Sony Wont stand behind Product, Amazon
9 August 2011
  • Summary: We have had this product since late January of this year. By June it was broken. Sony only has a repair center in Texas and required specific packaging for warranty repair. This shipped cost $35. Now they are telling us that it was our fault it broke and it will be $100 to fix the unit.

  • Summary: I've had this player (Sony BDP-S570) for 10 weeks now, and am very pleased with almost all aspects of it. But there's definitely a few flaws that could make or break your purchase decision, depending on what you're looking for in a Blu-ray player. The good: - Blu-ray playback.

Do not buy if you plan to use Netflix streaming video

Sony versus Samsung

Glen Jarboe, Amazon
2 January 2011
  • Summary: In the past month, I have purchased both a Samsung C65000 and a Sony S570, so I thought it might be useful to comment on both. Others have commented on the picture quality and I will agree that they are both great blu-ray players, and yes, the Sony loads a bit faster.

Good Disc Player, But Don't Expect More

  • Summary: I've been using this player for about 6 months in a small home theater setup. The video quality is impressive, and it seems to handle any DVD or Blu-Ray we've thrown at it without problems.
