I got this unit on sale at Costco but after reading a few not so great reviews I wanted to add a positive one: I LOVE IT!!! Granted I have nothing to compare it to so maybe I'm less picky than some. This is my first Blu-ray player and the first time I've been able to watch Amazon Prime video on my TV instead of my iPad. I'm stunned by the picture quality and would never guess that it's internet video. I found the setup to be pretty straightforward. Once I'd plugged it in and attached the (included) HDMI cable, turning it on took me to a screen which literally walked me through the setup. I never even looked at the instructions. Maybe in time I'll wish for a few more features or something but for now it feels like an absolute bargain. I remember back when I bought my first VCR for one thousand dollars (am I dating myself? hehee) so to get something this good for a hundred feels pretty amazing.

After owning this product for about two months, here is my review:

Pro:
Flawless Bluray playing.
Decent media player - Note that this player does not play FLV or AVI files. I found that simply renaming the AVI files to MKV, the player will play fine without complaints.
Decent streaming - I have only used it to play Netflix movies, and it does it well. It even shows subtitles for the movies that have them.
HDMI interface - When I turn the player on, the TV turns itself on and switches to the proper input channel. When I turn off the TV, the player turns off.

Con:
Wireless connection - Can be shaky, causing buffer issues. But this is an issue not related to the player itself. Another issue is that the player does not allow all the special characters, so if you have those strange $#@$%$ combinations in the wifi password, you may need to change the wifi password.
Netflix crashes - Once in a while, Netflix will boot me out to the main menu. This could be related to the connection issue mentioned above, but this happens only once in a while.
Firmware update feature - This issue can be the source of much frustration. When I first received the unit, Netflix complained about outdated firmware, but the player's firmware update feature keeps returning errors. I went to Sony's website, downloaded the ".bin" file, copied it to a DVD, then stuck it into the drive. The unit came up and found the bin file, and after a few steps, it was updated. I haven't tried this with a USB stick, so I don't know if it'll work the same way.

Conclusion:
All in all, I like the player. With the exception of some quirks, it did what it claimed to do.

Wanted to upgrade one of my DVD players. Did a search and found this. Also found it at Costco with an instant coupon which brought the price down to $99.99. Hooked it up on the basement TV (router on 2nd floor). Had no issues with the WiFi and no issues with Netflix and Amazon streaming.
Unit required firmware upgrade when attached and that took only a few minutes.
Oh yea, Plays Blue ray movies great.

I watch a lot of videos via USB and Netflix. This player, much like the PS3 will play pretty much anything you throw at it via USB. The complaints about some formats not working over DNLA are valid but I believe its a copyright protection thing that all players are doing now, so I don't hold that against it. You do have to do the firmware update before you can use netflix, and you have to register on sony essentials and link Pandora to it before you can use it. But once that is done its great.

Its currently at sams for the same price which is where I got it. The HDMI cable is short and useless if you're bluray is further than about 3 feet from your HDMI port. I had a better HDMI cable laying around anyway.

I bought this so I can keep my ps3 hooked up into the playstation 3D monitor and have something just as versatile in the family room for the main tv. This bluray player did the trick and even has the cross media bar which i'm accustom to. The firmware update online said it includes Cinevia . . . which had me worried about some of my content . . . but everything still played fine.

Pros:
Netflix Button
Plays mp4 and avi via USB, and other formats
2D to 3D conversion that some players don't do (looks at you LG)

Cons:
Setup
firmware update
register to use pandora
short HDMI cable

Verified Purchase
The dvd player arrived in a box with a different model number on it than what I had ordered. I looked inside the box and saw that the dvd player was the model that I had ordered however, so we started to set it up. While setting the dvd player up, we noticed the serial number on the back had been blacked out by what looked to be permanent marker. In addition, the user manual was a Xerox copy of an original. These facts seemed very odd to me and anyone else who I told, so I emailed the seller through amazon with a statement as to the condition of the dvd player and requested to send it back at no cost to me for a full refund or a genuine replacement of what I had ordered. I got a generic response to contact them personally. Given the suspicious circumstances, I was very uncomfortable contacting them directly, so I went through amazon, hoping I could rely on their a-z guarantee. Well apparently the a-z guarantee doesn't totally apply to third party sellers, so amazon sort of had their hands tied when dealing with this company (Was discountsjungle but when I clicked on the dvd link from my orders box, it took me to "thehappystore"). Discountsjungle's policy is: sure they'll take something back, but you'll always have to pay a restocking fee and pay for return shipping, which I wanted waived due to the condition of the dvd player upon arrival. I then contacted amazon to help me try to get those fees waived and get this issue resolved. No one assured me that the restocking fee would be waived and that I wouldn't have to pay for full return shipping costs, even though the dvd player was not as advertised and sent to me in their error. As a result, I have to keep this dvd player even though I can't call Sony with a serial number for future service etc.Read more ›
