Lousy wi-fi reception = blurry streaming

D. Hall, Amazon
5 February 2013
  • Summary: My previous Sony Blu-Ray, BDP-S770, shows 100 percent signal strength for its wi-fi connection. In the exact same spot, this one shows 55 to 62 percent. On the old one, streaming to my 50 inch plasma from Amazon or Netfllix showed a sharp, detailed picture, like watching a DVD.

does not accept SanDIsk flash drives for memory

Ted Aaronson, Amazon
2 February 2013
  • Summary: This is when Sony tries to do everything and fails at the basics. I really do not need to connect to over 100 different web sites, play music, view pictures, surf the web when all I want is play blu-ray disks.

Nothing is mentioned on box, unit or on literature that this is still a dual core?

J LeRoy, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: I don't see any speed increase from my BDP-S570 2010 model. There is no mention on unit, on box or in manual that it's a dual core although it states it in the selling points. I'm thiinking it was removed like a competitor did on a similar product.

Not for home streaming

TV's Frank, Amazon
22 November 2012
  • Summary: This is probably a fine blu-ray player but that was only half the reason I purchased this as a gift. The other reason was its built in WiFi and DLNA compatibility. The Sony site shows this player as capable of playing a variety of formats such as .mp4 and .mkv.

Flagship? More like Titanic.

AV maestro, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: Bought as it was highly recommended by all the magazines as the best thing since sliced bread. The picture quality is superb, in BluRay, 3D, and in bog-standard non-HD DVD the upscaling is unbelievable, almost indistinguishable from BluRay - until it goes into "Stutter Mode" which is does with the...

Mal soporte de archivos .AVI y .MKV

Yosu, amazon.es
2 February 2013
  • Summary: Compré este reproductor y acabé devolviéndolo. Apenas era capaz de reproducir un 20% de mis archivos .AVI y .MKV a través de un servidor DLNA. La situación mejoraba un poco cuando se conectaba a través de USB pero aún así comparado con otros reproductores el número de archivos .AVI y .MKV que es...
