  • Summary: I bought this to replace an older failed BR which also had component video output for my RPTV. Love all the features (e.g., Android remote control) and new apps but not so fond of Sony's enforced use of XMB app user interface. All-in-all a good trade-up.

  • Summary: Great device. Plays all the discs without a problem. Reliable, trouble-free operation. It also includes a reliable WiFi connection and a fair array of music and video inputs, including cameras and PCs.

Solid no-frills Blu Ray player with a few quirks

  • Summary: The BDP-S580 is a budget Blu-Ray player, and as such, it does what it's supposed to do very well, and is equipped with the several important features. First and most importantly, it plays Blu-Rays with picture and audio quality comparable to a Sony PS3 (my personal reference point).
  • Pros: Excellent picture and sound quality, networkable, streams from key services
  • Cons: Limited control of audio output, does not play AAC codec

Works as Advertised

  • Summary: Good thing I went for this Sony BD wasn't even looking at it first since I was checking out Samsung BDs. Glad everything worked out plus it's not a setup for me its for the parents.. If it it wasn't for the parents then I would just make a BluRay PC..
  • Pros: Everything works pretty good from Blu-ray to DVD playing.. Still playing around with it specially the features on this thing like the video services since I have to go PC and to the sites and to sony site to register and things like that. Partnered this with the Yamaha HTiB 5.1 395bl model and a ...
  • Cons: Sure the UI is a tiny bit laggy but this is no i7 PC.. I mean if you complain about it being slow then I guess you are a bit too spoiled and lost the principles of patience. For the WiFi.. I get streaming from 2-10Mbps(ave 5Mbps) and my router(D-link) is in the bedroom and the setup is in the liv...

Not using at as a Blu-ray player so won't say ...

  • Summary: Not using at as a Blu-ray player so won't say anything about that. Using it to stream movies from VUDU and others. The user interface is clumsy but other than that it works well for our needs.

Good for the Price

  • Summary: I bought this so I could stream Netflix. From what I now understand, Sony uses their own servers to stream movies. This creates another step in getting the movie from Netflix to you. I would consider another brand in the future to prevent interruptions of the stream.
