Solid no-frills Blu Ray player with a few quirks

Thunder240, avsforum.com
4 June 2013
  • 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

  • Summary: Have not yet played a commercial blueray disc, so I cannot comment on playback ability. I use this primarily as a DLNA media player. This unit provides the necessary wireless (built-in)connection to my media server.

Solid, but with minor flaws

RedRocker, Amazon
27 December 2011
  • Summary: Since there are so many reviews here, I'll try to address those negative issues which come up for most people. I've been using the unit for a couple months now. Setup took no time at all; most of the time is spent activating various accounts online.

Great starter Blue-ray player

H. M. Pearsall, Amazon
9 July 2011
  • Summary: This machine is so much better than the one I had previously, plus it has internet capability, which is why I traded it in.

Once you get past the software update...

  • Summary: Out of the box this unit was easy to hook up. Plug it in, connect it via HDMI and we're off... Straight into our first hiccup. The setup was easy enough. We purchased this particular unit because of its "wireless" capacity. That aspect worked easily enough.
