Sony 3D Blu-Ray Disc Player BDP-S570 - We were disappointed
9 September 2012
Excerpt: One of the things my husband and I decided to purchase for each other for Christmas 2010 was a Sony 3D Blu-Ray Disc Player, BDP-S570 to be exact. We had listened to all the advertising hype, had never owned a Blu-Ray DVD player, but wanted to try one. We decided to take the plunge because we understood that all these free avenues went with it where you could connect to the internet via your computer and watch free movies on our TV via the DVD player. Boy, were we wrong.
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 purchased a 802.11N adapter and still had disconnects trying to download movies from netflix. I finally gave up and hard wired it temporarily.
Sony BDPS570B - Blu-ray with wifi - auto setup does not work
21 December 2010
Summary: Great product but it was a real pain setting up the wifi link. The auto setup didn't work and I had to search the internet to find out that I would need to set it up manually. Eventually got it setup but it was a pain. If you were not IT literate it would be very very difficult to get the wifi working. Now it is working it is great.
Summary: Unlucky enough to get a duff one, sound gaps every now and then on all movies. Picture is stunning but disappointed...mid movie sound will disappear for a few seconds randomly. Know this is a fault with my player but also loud running noise in background and clunky when loading.
