Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this particular product. This is the best as of writing this review. The research also involved returning 3 other Blu ray players (Panasonic, LG and Toshiba).
Summary: The Sony S590 is another excellent Blu ray player from Sony. Fast load times, excellent Audio and Video and its loaded to the gills with apps and features you probably wont have the time use. The deal breaker for me was the inclusion of Vudu my favorite streaming site.
Pros: Excellent Video and Audio, Fast load times, Great Streaming.
Summary: This works really well, is mostly simple to operate, and the remote is well laid out and intuitive. I got it after returning the Panasonic DMP-BDT220 which was so highly hyped by cnet and other sites because it was totally non-intuitive and the manual was incomprehensible.
Summary: Easy to set up. Great picture thru either Blu-ray or regular DVDs and does an outstanding job of streaming movies from Netflix which was the primary reason I purchase it. I liked it so much I ordered a second one to upgrade an older player.
Summary: I upgraded from a Vizio Blu-ray that was adequate but slow to connect to the network, slow to load DVDs and very slow to load Netflix. Frequent buffering on Netflix too. Trying to fast forward a few frames in Netflix was also very slow to begin showing the movie again.
Summary: We wanted to stop paying our high cable bill and had considered buying an Xbox 360. Since we don't play video games that seemed a waste, so when we found this Sony and learned it would do the same thing other than gaming, we bought it.
Summary: I'm retired from the film industry and still work in tech, and this unit is amazing! Immediately recognized my wi-fi and set up the online services in a flash. Picture is flawless, unit is quiet and fast.
Summary: What do you expect it is a sony. The features are good if you have a fast internet connection. I have a slow connection so I dont use them. The 3d movies look and sound great. It's startup and load times are pretty fast. DVD's look great through the player as well.
Summary: Super easy set up. Great apps like Pandora, NPR, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Vudu, etc. ready to go. All work great. Simply go to various sites and login to complete set-up. Really responsive and intuitive device menu. Menu is similar to the SONY playstation.
