Piece of junk.

Dave V, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: Defective unit - whole unit vibrates and rattles when trying to play DVD, unit responds very, very slowly to remote commands, and the HDMI connection in the back is defective, requiring constant pressure to be applied. The general feel of the entire unit, from the remote to the manual, is so utterly cheap that I'm not going to bother replacing it - I'm shopping for an entirely different player.

HORRIBLE DEVICE

Deadwood, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • Summary: When playing any DVD, the video pauses for a second or so, skips and makes viewing impossible. I've spoken with Sony tech support who were unable to fix the problem. I returned the first unit to Amazon for an exchange. When the second unit didn't work either, I called Sony tech support. They couldn't fix the problem and exchanged it for a third unit. IT DIDN'T WORK EITHER! I'm now in the process of returned it for a FOURTH unit.

Difficult to contact Sony

  • Summary: Died in less that two months. Trying to contact Sony to see what I have to do for warranty return / repair is a major frustration. No useful email address seems apparent to use for help either.

Worthless

D. Titus, Amazon
22 June 2014
  • Summary: Wi-fi connectivity is worthless. Won't connect to my Wi-Fi automatically, won't connect manually. Every other device I have in the house have no issues connecting to my Wi-Fi. Will never buy another SONY product again. Used to think SONY was the best. I stand corrected.

ValiantSon, Walmart
3 June 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this player online. Had I seen it in a store I would NOT have purchased it. The power cord plugs in on the front of the unit. That means there will always be a cable sticking out of the front of the player. I have an entertainment center and I don't want cables sticking out of the front of it. I also went to the Sony web site to leave a comment. Unlike all the other companies I do business with, Sony provides no way to provide feedback.

Can't remove apps...memory fills then no blue ray features

Sailingtime, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: Sony controls which apps are loaded onto the player. They fill the entire storage up with a bunch of junk apps and then you can't use the extra features on your blue ray disks. When I try and watch Avatar it says that special features needs at least 2mb of storage which I don't have because of apps. I tried using USB as storage and it wont work...This thing is JUNK!

What a joke!

lilacrose "lilacrose", Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: If someone could tell me how to get DVDs to play on this thing, I would be very thankful. I purchased this with the promise it would play DVDs. After putting in 27 DVDs literally none of them worked.

Hope you get a working one

Y. Schultz, Amazon
9 May 2014
  • Summary: Brought player and disk tray wouldn't open. I googled possible fixes and eventually had to call sony. After about 20 minutes of doing the same things I had already tried, customer service determined I received a faulty player and said I would get a new one. I spent hours calling customer service and other departments, being put on hold and people telling me it was being processed. A month later, I have finally received the player.

Missing "feature"

Jacob Wilson, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: It plays blu ray's, 3D, DVD, etc. The real feature I was looking for when I purchased this was the 2D to 3D conversion (billed on the box). I was SORELY DISAPPOINTED, apparently it only works on DVD & Blu ray, not with any streaming app like SEN, VUDU, Netflix. The majority of my content is in the cloud & that is how technology is progressing.
