I have been after Sony to assist me with this since March and all they have done is waste my time
19 December 2014
Summary: It's a piece of junk. I bought it two and a half years ago from Costco. A year ago it stopped playing some Blu-ray discs. Now it doesn't play any Blu-ray discs. Sony’s customer service department is a joke.
Its a weird electronic but sounds and works good when it works.

Summary: It ate my hellraiser DVD and gave me problems and issues with the sound randomly slowly turning up, the unit turning on randomly, and problems with the remote. It said "demo lock" and i couldnt use the remote for about 2 years.
Summary: I purchased a Sony BDV-T58 two years ago. It was far ahead of it's time. Accessing apps that are state of the art on smart phones and smart televisions is a cinch. The price I paid for the unit has doubled since I purchased mine.
Summary: Occasionally the unit freezes up and instead of the audio for your movie or show, you get a loud static-like buzz noise through the speakers. The only way to make it stop is to turn the unit off and wait about 3 minutes for the whole thing to come back on.
Summary: In terms of quality of sound, it is awesome. But after a week the home key started sporadically working on start up. Turning off and on several times failed to fix the issue. Also unplugging and replugging works only some of the time. There are some serious glitches in the software.
Summary: I didn't want to spend more for the audio, than for the TV. I chose this system as a compromise, and for its value. It works well, sounds 100% better than my Bravia LED TV speakers, and fits my basic requirements. It syncs perfectly with my TV, and so no problems with remotes, etc.
