Oddly, a step backwards in a few areas.

  • Summary: I would buy this for the BD performance, but there are other players that make it much easier (and faster) to access on-line and streaming content.
  • Pros: Loads BDs VERY fast, excellent BD play and features
  • Cons: On-line streaming interface and setup below par, tiny little buttons on front

All you ever wanted to know about streaming content!

M. Campbell, Amazon

  • 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. This video shows exactly how Netflix, Pandora, Youtube, and the other interfaces work on the player, including playing back files on a flash or hard drive connected to the front USB port.

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. Actually, both purchases were motivated by the built in wifi that each player has (for me, the blu ray was a bonus). I found both players equally easy to set up using WPA2-PSK.

Great Blu Ray player, needs Streaming improvements

Ryan, Amazon
7 December 2010
  • Summary: First, let me say that before I purchased this Blu Ray player, I read many reviews about the quality of movie streaming via the Netflix application. Most of the reviews stated that the quality was not so great and CNET also mentioned this as well. People also seem to complain about the lack of a robust Netflix app that can do more than just show your instant queue.

Networking difficulties

Bertilak, Amazon
26 August 2010
  • Summary: I really don't know what a fair star rating should be for this. Should I base it on the difficulty I had in loading firmware or just on the general performance once things are all set up and installed? My rating leans towards the way the player works after setup, but I can't give it a full five stars. The following comments focus on the networking difficulties and the customer support I received. BUT SEE UPDATE3, below (23 December 2010).

Non-Technical Experience

S. Brady, Amazon
16 June 2010
  • Summary: I had been looking for a Blu ray DVD player for some time. It seemed that when I decided to get Blu ray, everyone raised their prices putting Blu ray out of my budget. Over Memorial Day week end the price was reduced $ 30.00 to $ 218.00 ( No tax or shipping ). I purchased this machine through Amazon but it was executed through One Call. The delivery was incredible, Fed Ex showed up at my door far ahead of when promised.

Sony BDP-S570 ...May be one of Sony's Better Offerings?

Wander'n "Wandern", Amazon
25 May 2010
  • Summary: Just opened up my Sony BDP-S570(Samsung LN46A650 46-Inch 1080p 120 Hz LCD)about an hour ago...25 May 2010. Startup was very straight-forward to the point.First thing was download a firmware update...no problems with update.Went through Ethernet rather than wi-fi because of problems taking the wireless route (with other players) firmware updates...not the place to have a problems! Will probably stay with Ethernet cable until Netflix has a fix for content download...
