Worst piece of Junk I Ever Bought and Dealing with Sony is a Nightmare

Michael Kaplan, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this unit and installed it without setting up the network. Several months later, I decided I wanted to download Netflix on it, so I went to setup the wireless network connection. It gave me a message that the network connection was OK, but the internet connection failed. Something which is physically impossible. I have 4 other wireless devices on my network and all of them worked perfectly on the first try.

Was OK, then the UPDATE OF DEATH happened. Constant freezing & logging into Netflix every time you want to watch.

  • Summary: Like another commenter, my BDP-S790 seemed to work OK out of the box, then went haywire after the October 2013 update. Forces me to log into Netflix again and again. I tried to restore to factory settings, and it just hangs and freezes. Tech support has no clue. I set up a warranty return, but didn't have the cash to buy Roku just to have something to watch on TV.

Works great as a paper weight! But that's it.

  • Summary: The first one was left out in the rain by the deliverers. The replacement that was sent didn't even work. The third one was great.... it lasted almost 6months! Yeah.... think I will get a different brand for my next one, and probably buy it directly from a local store so that if I have any problems I can actually return it. Most expensive paper weight in my house right now.

Customer Service at Sony is terrible

DBG, Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: I had this unit in my possession for less than 24 hours. The unit would never "connect to the Internet" using either wireless or wired connectivity. I will point out that I have numerous devices connecting through the same wired and wireless networks, but this unit would never recognize the Internet. It would receive a DHCP address fine, but would show Internet as Failed.
