Much Better Than I Expected!

  • Summary: Out the box it feels solid, well built and has a host of connections on the back. This is connected via HDMI to my TV for best quality and least wires. Its also connected via ethernet to get the top speeds from my internet.
  • Pros: + Solid, well built and has a host of connections on the back, + Setup was simple and took a few minutes, + Menu system is alright, + Image viewer works fine, + USB media playback, + Works with any TV
  • Cons: - Lack of ITVs on demand service and 4oD, - Navigating Youtube is difficult with the annoying input system used

Works Wonderfully for Me

S. V. Divelbiss "shera1381", Amazon
7 January 2012
  • Summary: I have no idea why some of these reviews are so awful, because my experience was great. I looked into buying either apple tv or a roku at first, but since I do not own an HDTV and both of those lack the old school composite hookups, I ended up looking for something I didn't need an adapter for.

Works better than anticipated

Benjamin R., Newegg

  • Summary: The Wifi router you decide to use is crucial to any of these devices. I have heard of some people having stuttering from this device. I am using a Netgear WNDR3700 router with this box and don't have any problems and the internet connection connected to that router is only 6mbps down....
  • Pros: DLNA certified, Remote that works with TVs to control volume and inputs (can use just one remote to control this box and TV) and virtual remote that you can download for free to work with smartphone (gain access to a QWERTY keyboard to search for content. Streams content smoothly straight from Wi...
  • Cons: Has just about every plug on the back except for DVI, VGA, and S Video. Wifi only uses the 2.4ghz N band and not the 5ghz band. Some file types will only play on the USB and not over the network (See sony's site for specifics). I just dedicated an External hard drive to the device to be hooked up...

It's a Contender for sure

Clyde H., Newegg
26 May 2011
  • Summary: - Neither Pro nor Con, but during setup, it auto detected my tv as 1080p, yet my tv is only 720p/1080i. Not a big deal, picture looks good. - If you're familiar with the PSP or PS3, the menu will make perfect sense. - All in all this is a great little unit.
  • Pros: Relatively small footprint, ease of setup, great picture, decent service selection (hulu plus for one), all at a disposable price. - Network media requires no setup, it automatically saw my Linksys NAS, and added the appropriate folders. DLNA For The Win! (and over wireless i might add) - Actuall...
  • Cons: - Remote only controls sony products (could be a plus if you have a Sony TV. - Device must be registered on Sony's website after initial setup - "BD Remote" app for Android needs work. the onscreen keyboard works nicely, but trying to control the side-to-side menu selections can be tedious, as th...

  • Summary: I had an older projection HDTV this was for and this was the only media player you can hook up with regular component cables, The Roku HD XDS has component out but requires miniplug to component adapter.The netflix queue was the thing that drove me crazy as i wanted this to be easy for everyone in...
  • Pros: DLNA, component and HDMI outputs, PS3 feel interface, 1080p, power button(roku does not have one on unit). pandora
  • Cons: Wish the there was an app to search your media files from the pc easier.

  • Summary: getting the player to operate was a little tricky, but once i figured out the process.and it was done, this player has operated very well. Occasionally a bug occurs with the wireless connection, but it is likely more the fault of my house computer.
