"Love It! Get it Bravia owners"

billcnetbill, CNET
14 May 2010
  • Pros: Apparently it has developed a lot since these others reviewed this device. It is 5/14/2010 and it has a lot. Netflix on demand, but what a great device with decent content for no cost most of the time. It is like having a computer with a 52" screen
  • Cons: semi cumbersome interface. Requires an internet connection of course.

"The 4th wire is the killer"

caponsacchi, CNET
4 July 2009
  • Pros: The literature failed to say an ethernet wire was required and that the unit comes without it. So what do you do if your internet source is on the other side of the house? String a cable across yours walls and ceiling? And for what? Absurd.
  • Cons: I couldn't get it to work. I got tangled up in cables--hdmi, usb, AC, and ethernet--with no place to attach the ethernet.

"Worthless!!"

29 January 2009
  • Pros: None is worthless
  • Cons: Does not work with certain ISP/IP addresses in the US. It seems that the service is just available for the US, there are unfortunately several IP addresses in the US are not in a database of a Malaysian company that provides insight to sony about IPs

6 January 2009
  • Pros: It's a keeping up with the Jones' strategy-
  • Cons: Does not work with all boadband connections. The marketing material does not describe this unfortunate situation nor do the sales folks (how could they know?).

"Not worth the aggravation"

dsc3507, CNET
26 December 2008
  • Pros: Fun the very first time (maybe)
  • Cons: Too many to list them all. If this was a give away or cost (maybe) $50 it might be worth a try. - Numerous lockups when playing local files on a wired network. Required pulling the power cord to reset
