Netflix Streaming Requires a Wireless-N router

Mark A. Wilson, Amazon
5 February 2011
  • 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...

To be honest you did not need all the gadgets

Mr Lewes, Amazon
7 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this for all the extras and in fact only use the blue ray player. I also bought it because I have a sony TV, the remote of which does not work this machine so no need for brand loyalty. Could have bought as good a machine for less from a different manufacturer. It does play DVD well.

Lacking in USB cababilty

SunderStan, Amazon
5 January 2011
  • Summary: This review is for those interested in the technical aspects of using the USB port to view video. A very important fact is that the USB does NOT recognise NTFS formatted hard drives (Windows XP and later). It recognises FAT32 formatted hds (windows 98) but this limits files to a maximum size of 4GB.

Sony BDPS570B - Blu-ray with wifi - auto setup does not work

Billy, Amazon
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.

Mmmmm...iffy

trailer, Amazon
4 November 2010
  • 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.

NOT Multi-region!

Chinatown Blue "cthulhoid", Amazon
24 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a Panasonic which had a mechanical failure after only 14 months (the disc eject mechanism failed and it had to be dismantled to remove the disc). Having had a lot of good Sony technology lately, from the PS3 to my Walkman phone, I decided to try this one.

Matthias Mueller "mattberlin", Amazon
31 January 2011
  • Summary: Hab den Player als Bundle bekommen. Er funktioniert sehr gut mit einem Sony-TV zusammen 2D und 3D funktionieren hervorragend.
