Top Customer Reviews
First of all, for those that get the Sony BDV-E570 that was manufactured earlier in the year, it may have been before they fixed the issues with the software upgrade. I believe I received such a model. Being the overly concerned nerd that I am, I read the manual. It is not very specific, but does tell you to plug in the network cable to perform the upgrade. Read into this and you must assume to NOT PERFORM THE UPGRADE OVER WIFI. Well, you can take that a step further, (which of course I did), and you can download the update directly from Sony, place the files on a blank CD-R, then place the disk in the player and perform the update that way (it auto detects that the disk contains update files very nicely). This worked perfectly. No issues like the horror stories I have been hearing about this model (earlier this year), and the next model up the BDV-E770W. Due to the age of the model I received, there were two updates to perform, which I did, using two separate disks for each update. They take a while, so don't start one if you have somewhere to be. You do have to perform both, and the latter update is the more important one that enables the features that make this platform what most people are looking for, a 3D capable Blu-Ray HTIB with DLNA Features (both of these are why I got this model).
Now on to the good stuff.
Wiring: The room I placed it in is wired for 7.1, so connecting the rear speakers was not an issue. The speakers themselves have standard pinch connectors, so insert the wire and you are all set. At the reciever end, there is a custom connector, so you will have to splice it to your jack wires if you don't use the wire they provide (which looks a bit short for a larger room).Read more ›
I Wish that the subwoofer was powered. The passive subwoofer gives good sound, not great sound. The 1,000 watt system easily fills the large family room with quality sound.
The system has the minimum amount of inputs, but lacks an audio out-put to run a set of B speakers to another room in the house.
I haven't tried the WiFi conection to the internet yet. I'll update my review after I try the WiFi feature.
Overall, It's a good system for anyone looking for a complete Blu-Ray video & DTS 5.1 audio right out the box. I got the best price from Amazon (Amazon stands behind any product that you purchased fom them) and it was deilver in two days. Other than the rear speaker wires (it's easy to add additional wire) and the lack of an audio output, I'm happy with the system.
If anyone has found a way to get a stereo audio output from this system, I'd be very interested in knowing how you did it.
pros: Can watch Netflix "watch instantly" movies and shows
can listen to Pandora
can watch photos, videos from a flash drive
sound is pretty good, comparable to my last system
cons: It cannot play my iPod (5th gen iPod classic). Watch out for this: the system can play some iPod's, but not others.
It cannot play European (other than region 1) DVD's. I now have to hook up my European DVD player to the television because the unit is not a real receiver.
Does FM, not AM radio
Overall, it was a good buy for me since I got it on Amazon for $350, so I can't complain too much.
Do not send your equipment to a Sony Service Center! You will never get it back! I sent the receiver for service more than 4 weeks ago, and have heard nothing substantive regarding when the product will be returned ("call again in 5-7 days"). I might as well have thrown $400 out of the window. I really wish I had just returned the receiver to Amazon rather than sending it to Sony for service.
Never again will I buy another Sony product.
=== UPDATE (2/23/2011) ===
On February 16, 2011, I received the replacement. It was a refurbished model (not the same) that has worked well so far. I hope to say that this story has come to a close. Still, 4 months for a replacement from Sony is ridiculous. I think that's a hint that there might be some deep flaws in this product.
