Fantastic 3D blu-ray player with dual HDMI,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony BDPS790 3D Blu-ray Player with Wi-Fi (Electronics)
I have owned innumerable DVD, Blu-Ray and 3D Blu-ray players over the years, with separate set-ups for the living room, theater room and family room. Each has performed well enough, but all tended to have one flaw or another.
Until I purchased the Sony BDP S-790 recently. I had wanted a player with dual HDMI outs so that I can use my Denon 4806 AVR, as it still has the finest sound I have ever owned. I had purchased a newer AVR with 3D pass through, but was not satisfied with the sound. I bought the Panasonic BDT-500, also with dual HDMI, but that unit experienced frequent freeze-ups and definitely did not perform as well as i would have hoped. I returned that and decided to try the Sony.
So far, fantastic is the only word for it. Wifi connection was instantaneous, 3d recognized immediately and the player has been flawless with both 3D and standard blu-rays. It has handled every disk I have thrown into it and I can't imaginge it not working flawlessly as we go along.
I highly recommend this unit.

Thank you Jeff for the feedback, i take customer feedback very serious and a major part of my purchasing choice. i read back a year and was haunted with story after story of the wifi not connecting to the home network, then requiring all kinds of reconnecting. your review appears to note that this issue has been resolved. it fired right up. my cable provider admitted they are in fact behind the times with providing enough wireless juice to keep up with the current technology. he noted I was lucky to live in a community with older adults that do not use their equipment much leaving me with enough streaming to provide service to all the 17 wireless items , from Ipads, TV's, laptops, printers, blu-rays etc. I know 17 may sound like a lot but that is the direction we all are heading. The wireless service's are out-dated while the toys grow wireless/wifi TV's, well you get it...,,,,much like the new Ipad Apple Air. A new piece of technology that doesn't have any supporting cast. You can go to the moon but providers can't get you there... streaming , buffering, searching...it should not be happening. Even new gathering spots, clubs, coffee chops, library's have stepped up their game. The cable guy explained when they hook up wireless services ( pick one) they control usage by providing only a few fast uses much like a parking garage so you have 4 wireless spots, if someone comes over you will have users knocked off, more , longer streaming, buffering, etc. Don't get me wrong there are some money earning services but for the most part we are not getting what we pay for in service, not from the hardware or item but the service.....I am always reading ways to speed up and improve...so I read customer postings....I love the positive feedback regarding this blu-ray player with wifi but I expect it all the time.....blackouts, loss of sound, etc. not what I want. I'll pay top dollar but want what I pay for....the companies should hammer the service providers....
