Summary: The Sony BDP-S580 is replacing my old slow giant S300. My old one took minutes just to turn on, minutes to load a bluray, and a good minute just to open the tray!!! Now for the BDP-S580: It starts up almost instantly in the fast start up mode. (uses more electricity...
Summary: This is my first Blu Ray player ever. I had researched on numerous brands and makes before I purchased the Sony S580. I had opted for the Sony S580 because of the brand name, affordability and built in WI FI. Overall I am not disappointed with the purchase. Set up was easy.
Summary: This was my first Blu-ray player. I have it connected to my home network and the internet and am amazed at all of the things I can do with it beyond playing disks. So happy with it that I bought a second one !
Summary: I just bought this bluray player for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves it. I currently have the 570(older model of this one) and I think it's great. Both are extremely user friendly and put out a great quality picture!
Summary: This is going to be a very short one. For me, the make-or-brake, and main reason to buy the SONY was their cooperation with the Berliner Philharmonic. First thing I did is link the services and try my new SONY and TV - WOW!
Summary: This is a very nice unit. I don't know if I will ever use the 3D option. But I do like the apps. I also like that you can use a computer Keyboard with this unit. Typing with the remote is a pain in the butt. Also if the apps and the unit won't update.
Summary: I have 2 of these, one upstairs and one down stairs for streaming from the web, home network and from USB devices.This devce has Wi-Fi built in and works flawlessly, easy to set up and easy to navigate menu. It has 2 USB ports, one in back and in front.
Summary: I am loving this player. I am a loyal fan of Sony for years and its products have never disappointed me. The video services over internet are too good. Very easy setup. The iphone app is great and helpful when typing searches or anything elaborate while using internet.
Summary: I am certainly not using this device to its full potential, but for watching BR disks or netficks, you can't ask for much more. BR disks load fast and streaming is high quality. Setup was no problem at all and my Harmony remote works great with it. I have absolutely no complaints.
