Summary: Main thing is that it started skipping and flashing and doing weird stuff after a year. Then a few days later it was pretty much incapable of video playback. For the year it worked.... Decent player. Disc playback: great Netflix streaming: so so Other features: don't care GUI: decent
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.
Summary: In summary, if you are buying this player to stream Netflix (or other internet content) over your wireless network it will REQUIRE a wireless-N router. I have been using an old Samsung BDP-1590 player for the last two years to stream Netflix using my LinkSys WRT56G router (wireless-G) and have had...
Summary: I purchased a sony BDP-S570 (first thing I did was download latest firmware 5.88) my first major dissapointment was how badly 802.11G wireless worked, I live in a very conventional wood home and just 30 feet away I kept getting disconnects from my dsl router every 5 minutes or so, I then went an...
Do not buy if you plan to use Netflix streaming video

Summary: Setup is very easy and the picture is excellent when watching discs. The player constantly hangs up and rebuffers when watching HD Netflix streaming video, making it unwatchable. After doing a little research I discovered that this is a common problem.
Summary: I bought this BD player willing to pay a few extra dollars for all the great new features available today. I usually use a home theater PC in the living room but since I moved from my house into an apartment I dont have my home theater setup anymore.
All you ever wanted to know about streaming content!

Summary: Length:: 8:07 Mins I read a lot of reviews on this player, here at Amazon, AVSForums, CNET, and elsewhere, but I never saw much coverage of the streaming options or how this player actually interfaces to those services.
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.
Summary: Comments about Sony BDP-S570 Network Media Player: This was so east to setup and the picture quality is fantastic. The best picture our TV has had. We did not know it could look so good and it is so easy to use. I like the ability to connect to net.
Pros: Backwards Compatible, DVD Upconversion, Easy Set-Up, Excellent Image Quality, Good Connections, Good Soundtrack Support, Upgradeable
