Summary: If you are planning to use this for Netflix, don't - get a LG or a Roku box. The player re-buffers so often during a program making it unwatchable. A Google search will tell you that there are many unhappy people out there. I'll probably see if I could still return it.
Summary: Purchased to replace a failed Bluray player. Wanted one with Wifi for my Netflix. After hooking up all cables, tried to tie into my wifi. Had a good router signal but no Internet. Every other item in my house using wifi had internet service.
Summary: I purchased this with a new 55" Sony LED tv. This replaced my Samsung bluray player with streaming capability. First the good: Bluray/dvd playback is very good with fast load times and quiet operation. Remote control is small and easy to use.
Summary: The BDP S580 plays Blu-Ray discs just fine, but that's about all it does with any degree of competence. Its primary failing is due to Sony's decision to divert all the myriad streaming services that come with the device through its own servers before delivering them to the home.
Summary: First time blu-ray owner thanks to this blu-ray player. I'm a lifelong Sony fanboy since the late 80s and have yet to be disappointed, hence this purchase. Just a couple of notes. I don't have any other blu-ray players to compare my comments to, so take my words with a grain of salt.
