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.
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.
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
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
