I just purchased two of these - one for myself and one for an out-of-state friend. I'm using mine with a Sony Bravia 1080p flat screen; my friend is using hers with an older 30 inch CRT TV (4:3 aspect ratio) until she gets around to taking her flat screen out of its box.

I was thinking about getting a unit with built-in WiFi, but before making the purchase(s), I did some research online and heard (read) some horror stories about streaming via WiFi that were, let's say, somewhat less than complementary (glitches, disconnects, freezes requiring reboots, etc.), so I decided to purchase this unit BECAUSE it didn't have WiFi (why pay for a feature that I'm not going to use?). I already have a Sony BDP-S370 (using it with a Samsung flat screen) and like it a lot; I would have bought two more of them, but they weren't available directly from Amazon when I ordered, so I got these - I prefer buying from Amazon for their returns policy. Also, the BDP-S380 supports 'vudu' AND it has an on-screen digital throughput speed readout (in Mbps) which appears when streaming is starting up - both welcome additions!

My setup took about 15 minutes from the time I opened the box until I was watching discs, Amazon VOD, and Netflix (the only ones that I've set up so far). I connected the BDP-S380 to my TV via HDMI, and my LAN via Ethernet cable and everything just worked (of course, I had to set it up for my Amazon and Netflix accounts, but that took less than five minutes each). After going through the on-screen quick start menus, the unit told me that there was a firmware upgrade available, so I told it to do it, and a few minutes later, it finished and turned itself off (normal when upgrading firmware).

I purchased this to replace an older blu-ray that had trouble commuinicating with my receiver. It was first gen and I couldn't wait but it still had some bugs.

So far at playing discs this has been awsome, the sound and the picture quality couldn't be better. The load time is much faster than with the older players.

If you're looking for streaming then I think we need to give these guys a couple more years to work out the bugs. Before I purchased this I bought the best rated top of the line model that was supposed to be the best at streaming and I was dissappointed. So I waited six months, bought this and the streaming is a little improved but do not expect to sit through anything uninterupted from Netflix or Hulu. So I still default to my labtop for anything streaming.

Anyway I will not return it as I am very happy with the way it handles my blu-rays.

I was the happy owner of a BDP-S350, which was an excellent little Blu-ray player which performed seamlessly, even though it was one of the early generation players. The BDP-S380 was purchased because the S350, even though it can connect to the internet, can not stream Netflix. The S350 has an ethernet slot for receiving network upgrades, but there is no firmware update that allows it to stream. Perhaps it doesn't have the requisite hardware. Anyway, the S380 purchase solved the problem and the S350 is now on Craig's list looking for an adopting family.

The S380 is a very small, very light machine. Aesthetically, it looks beautiful. The main external difference to the S350, aside from its tiny size and miniscule weight, is the fact that it offers a coax digital audio output compared to the optical audio output of its predecessor. Of course, you can also output sound to HDMI, but in my setup I send video directly to the screen and the audio directly to the amp, without using the amp for pass-through of the video signal. My amp has a digital coax input, so this wasn't an issue for me, but if you want a digital optical out then this would not be the player for you. A digital coax cable is not included, but I simply used one of the cheap and nasty RCA connectors supplied and this seems to work fine. If I have any problems with the sound, I will spend the $15 or so on a dedicated cable. As a final comparison, there is more plastic in the case and the power cable does not detach, unlike that of its predecessor.

The remote control is OK, but I use a Harmony 1100 universal remote anyway, which worked fine after a few setup problems, so the supplied remote was simply tossed into the remote control drawer to join so many others.

I really like this player. I've had it about a month now and can't think of anything I dont like about it. It's nice and quiet. Great picture, seems to upconvert well enough. It loads very quickly even with the "quick start" turned off. I have it hard wired to the internet so I have no wireless problems to speak of. Its slim, sick and shiny; goes great with my Sony Bravia LED. I have a PS3 so the whole Netflix "in queue only" thing that others have complained about doesn't bother me. The other internet apps are basically a rehash of whats already on my Bravia. But, Oh Well. I bought it to play Blu-Rays and that it does just fine. This player actually replaced a Samsung BD-C6500 that I had in my possession for less than an hour before taking it back to the store. It was scary awful. Seriously. Overall, I am very satisfied and actually will be buying another in the near future for my bedroom. I have no problems giving this 5 stars and would recommend it to my friends and family. If your looking for an inexpensive, quality, entry level Blu-Ray player, look no further, you just found one.

EDIT: Wow! It's already been two years since I've had this player! I just wanted to update my review to let everyone know that it is still going strong. I use it all the time, practically daily, and have not had a single issue with it. It's a great little piece of equipment and am extremely happy I chose this player over all the other options.
