We should SUE SONY!

Explorer83, CNET
29 January 2012
  • Summary: Feel free and contact me, and lets get on it :)
  • Pros: I have the same problem. Now I'm thinking how nice it would be if sony would replace all of our devices, with brand new one (Including NETFLIX APP, of course) :)
  • Cons: If anyone that has a SONY Blu-ray Player containing the same exact issue, regarding `NETFLIX Streaming`

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. This adds up to more than we paid for it in the first place. Also I am not sure what we did. We never moved the unit. It was protected in a cabinet and only used for its purpose.

Do not buy if you plan to use Netflix streaming video

Jeffrey Wood, Amazon
15 January 2011
  • 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. Sony is of no help and refuses to acknowledge the problem.

SO Disapointing !!!

Steve Hoyt "gibu", Amazon
5 January 2011
  • 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. With DNLA, online streaming, and so many other features I really had high hopes for this player to be a great, compact replacement for my previous setup. What a total disappointment!

Stay away if you have a secured Wireless network

H. Wang, Amazon
30 November 2010
  • Summary: I am a Cisco certified network engineer and I have helped numbers of large public companies build their enterprise grade wireless network. I know how Wi-Fi works in and out. I have 5+ wireless devices connected to my home wireless network without issue. Unfortunately I could not get this Player to work on my home wireless network. It simply does not support a non-broadcast SSID.

SONY should be embarassed

Amazon Customer "biz", Amazon
2 October 2010
  • Summary: I have had good luck with SONY products in the past. Not with this one though. It took several days to get it to work because it is designed by SONY to work in a network environment that possesses no security protection. This device needs access to any IP address and any port at any IP address. This would be acceptable if: 1. SONY properly documented its use of ports and address space 2.

So far so good: no good anymore..

Kristin, Amazon
22 September 2010
  • Summary: I got this after returning the Samsung 6500 since netflix was not streaming well plus a few other hiccups. The setup for this machine was a hassle. I had to call Sony and do everything manually but it does work now..plus there are more steps that are not user friendly. But it works! So far netflix has streamed seamlessly. I dont like the look of this one as much.. the menu is okay..might take some getting used to. The remote is okay.

Not good for streaming

Irols, Amazon
14 September 2010
  • Summary: The Netflix streaming on this player is so bad that I returned the item. I have a Roku streamer and there was no comparison in quality and user interface. I have a home theatre with a front-end projection system which projects a 220" image (10' wide screen). So when it comes to resolution I need the highest possible or it looks like crap.

Not for Netflix

Bowser B "Bill", Amazon
12 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this mostly for Netflix streaming movies and an occasional Netflix Blu-Ray DVD. I it were for Blu-ray only, I would give it a higher score. Of course, why would one spend the money for Ethernet and Wi-Fi if were just to play disks? As a Neflix streamer, the S570 worked fine for a few weeks. Now it will play Netflix for 5 to 20 minutes, then goes to "Loading" and never recovers until I stop and go back to the menu to select the program and start again.

NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS - THE MOST DISAPPOINTING SONY PURCHASE EVER

Christopher, Amazon
19 June 2010
  • Summary: At risk of sounding completely negative, I will just itemize the entire array of problems I had with this unit. I receive it last night, and immediately all these issue came up. I do hope this was just a defective unit, but I will have to wait until Amazon sends me a replacement in a few days. The issues: 1) SONY IPHONE BLU-RAY REMOTE... if you activate the iPhone remote, the in-the-box original remote stops working.
