Summary: Worst blu ray player in my house.. Ugly, useless waste of space. The front of it is this big blank face. I have to reconnect to the internet everyone I turn it on. It isn't worth the time reconnecting every time so now we use our other blu rays for Netflix etc and this one for disc's only. Total waste of money for this cheap looking system.
Summary: Great speakers. This is in a room that is fairly large and open. We've hade it for a few months and have never complained about the sound quality. That being said the functionally stinks. All the apps and media stuff stinks. They have a terrible layout for Netflix, Hulu, pandora, and the such. It takes forever for it to connect to the internet. The other problem is changing the base level.
Great soundbar system for a medium to smaller size room

Summary: If you loathe the clutter of a true 5.1 system, this compact sound solution will satisfy your needs. The surround effect is minimal but it does deliver sound infinitely superior to your tv speakers. Good booming bass and overall good sound. The DVD unit is sleek and stylish and setup is a snap.
Summary: I mostly own Sony products and was happy to get this, the sound is great, the picture is greater. It was very hard to hook this up to my cable box and TV. Its pretty much designed to be a stand alone product not for cable. The set up guid showed how easy it was to hook up everything except the cable box. It would be nice is Sony started including HDMI cables since the price of the cables has gone down dramaticly but they must have a surplus of RCA cables.
Summary: Good looking unit ,easy to set up and use. I have not yet used all the features of this yet but the main items the surround sound and blue ray player work great. This unit is a replacement of an older Sony home theater that had the 5 speaker system without the blue ray and this unit is much simpler to set up and use and with the sound bar mounted on the wall gives the whole room a cleaner look.
