Summary: This was a gift to my brother and it wasn't working as it should, I would have returned it but my brother decided that he should keep it an fix it. It seemed as if it was a returned item or referbish. Not to HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary: It has a lot of quirks but overall I am satisfied and haven't had any major issues since activating the unit 6 months ago.
Pros: The functionality is very good as far as menus and preloaded apps. DVDs play well and the 3D quality is excellent. Remote is easy to understand and it has dedicated controls for Netflix and Sony Entertainment Network. Setting up with a network (wireless or cabled) is pretty simple and the menu offers a manual and auto feature that makes it even easier. The unit is compact and easy to connect. It is very nice looking with almost any other components and is easy to clean.
Cons: It has an auto shut off feature that you cannot disable and It has to reconnect to the network every time it is turned on which slows down using the unit and one connection function requires that you acknowledge that is completed connection before it continues. The search feature is OK (even though it is set up on screen as a QWERTY keyboard even though it is controlled with the remote) but does not have an auto search to make suggestions as you type. If you misspell ...
Summary: why is this selling for so much when original list price was $uno hundred and fiffty ? I bought mine reconditioned from New Egg for half that price.
Pros: Great Blu Ray player. Streams Netflix movies with no lag, very clear image watching House of Cards, etc.. I need to only use the buttons on the unit itself for watching autoplay Blu-Rays I burn with Sony Vegas Pro
Cons: slow to boot up from cold? Slow to play a Blu-Ray when you first insert it.
Summary: This is the second one that I purchased. I cannot find it on the shelf anymore so I got it through Amazon. It not only works with the latest TVs but also the old analog TVs. I highly recommend this player.
Pros: The movie quality has been good, except when streaming Netflix, HULU + etc....
Cons: Mu open/close mechanism has jammed for some reason. My Blu Ray of the "Empire Strikes Back " is stuck... I have tried the remote. The buttons on the unit are USELESS. The buttons on the unit are poorest I have ever seen. The remote is upside down from our normal remotes. Bought it at Best Buy 8 months ago. ready to ditch for another.. NO MORE SONYS!!!!!.
Got refurbished model (it was advertised "new"), but Amazon helped, and it works fine. NEW YORK SALES
14 June 2013
Summary: As I mentioned above, I got mine through Amazon Prime, sold by New York Sales. The description could not have been clearer -- "NEW." I opened the box not to find Sony packaging, but, brown cardboard with a receipt indicating "refurbished." Clearly, not what I bargained for. Called Amazon, who are always responsive and pretty amazing, and spoke with a, "Curly Ann." She kicks butt.
