I can't really say anything bad about the principal function of the device -- the BluRay playback. It works well enough and so far as I can tell the picture quality is fine (I don't really have a television capable of showing off its strengths), but all of that is dependent on a very big "if" which is, IF the machine is working at all, which isn't that common as it turns out. It seems to lock up all the time and when it does, the only way to get it working again is to power cycle it . . . and the only way to do that is to unplug it. In my case, as I am sure is the same for many others -- the plug is behind an entertainment center in a place very difficult to access so unplugging it is no treat. Would it have been so hard to allow one to reboot the thing by holding in the power button for a few seconds or even to use a power cord which can be unplugged at the unit? (or better yet, create software for the thing which actually works rather than locking up).
Offhand it seems to have a lot of features but then for its price (did I mention it's kind of pricey?) it should have a lot of features. On the other hand, those features don't really work all that well. For all of the features which require connecting to the internet, good luck -- that's certainly no treat. Half the time it simply fails to connect to anything with no error message or anything -- it just quits trying after a few seconds. I can repeat trying until the cows come home and nothing happens. I have verified that it is connected to the router, there is nothing blocking its access to the internet -- it just fails to work. Usually I can get it to work by going through the "Easy Network Setup" routine once again (even though the network was already setup and working -- it has no trouble, for instance, accessing DLNA servers on my local network). Most of the time that will allow it to access internet based services though, even after that, it sometimes fails two or three times before it finally works. Once it does start working, it can take forever for it to actually access a service -- using my XBox 360, for instance, I can access Amazon Home Video within seconds -- it can take several minutes to do so using the Sony. And then, after watching a video, that's one of the times that it frequently locks up -- rather than going back to the app, the screen just goes black and the unit refuses to respond to almost anything (interestingly, if I press the button to open the disc tray at that point I will see a message that the function isn't available at that point -- fine, but then no other functions are available either). The DLNA functions are not that impressive either -- for instance, it doesn't seem capable of playing mpeg files.
As others have pointed out, its connection options are pretty limited. While i don't find that particularly limiting -- HDMI is enough for my purposes -- at the price they are asking, they ought to at least offer some flexibility. Also, as some have pointed out, the unit seems rather flimsy -- unless something breaks on it, I don't know if that's a legitimate criticism but it doesn't inspire confidence, particularly given how poorly nearly everything else works.
Basically, the only thing which really seems to work well is the BluRay function and that only works when the unit isn't locked up. Not much of an endorsement and I probably could have done a lot better at a fraction of the cost.
BluRay is life for this.
Phenomenal performance here with vibrant colors, and excellent detail, and nicely performed scaling. Running a 1080P Sharp LED so the Upscale to 4K is something still up in the air with this player for me. Shadow detail, and highlights are well presented. My reference is the Oppo BDP-103 of which this is about 8/10ths there. Not bad for a Sub two hundred dollar player you can buy today.
Loading speed is very acceptable by today's standards. Plays all my other Media discs save SACD of which I have none to play. MP-3, and WAV format discs, and some VCD discs I have laying around the media room.
Up the Stream, or is that the Creek with the Paddle.
Streaming is a applenty with apps I have not even heard of, but PS-3 play, and YouTube, and Netflix, and Hulu and more to fill out the Streaming party.
The one item that sticks out as an annoyance is YouTube. Your favorites autoplay no matter what you deselect in the setup menu. So as you hunt for the desired favorite, the one you don't want, that is the first one is playing. Annoying that. If you have allot of favorites as I do, this Sony will irritate no end hunting for that just right video to play. Stick with a tablet, or computer. So much easier.
Netflix is standard fare. That is easy as can be. Sync with another device to your account, and the Sony will behave with Netflix like you always had the account here. Streams are good not great. Soft details, and poor artifact rejection. Frequent Dot Crawl artifacts, and some Jaggies on occasion. Definitely not your Bluray quality. The YouTube quality is worse still by the way. I do not use the other streamed services as they are not my cup of tea if you will. The Ethernet aspect of the Sony lags my Asus in performance, and it is night and day difference. A not so great showing there.
It is all about a pretty plain face.
Where are the controls??? The front panel is void of any such transport or mode, or any other controls save power. Why??? I want to play a CD and don't want to bother with the Remote Control. Well, you cannot. The remote gets lost? So does playing the Sony. Unless you have a Mobile app as backup. An "F" grade for being stylish over being functional.
The Remote control although small, covers the functions of the Sony just fine. Backlit, and larger buttons would make the experience better. As being an expensive player in 2014, it should have had this.
The Face is more than skin deep on old too.
The PS-3 like interface while functional is primitive, and lacks refinement. Did Microsoft help here? Long strings of menus, bring to more, and more strings of menus. Not a great way to go.
Connections are just fine, USB input, Coaxial Output, and Optical Toslink Output, and HDMI output with the requisite captured power cable for our U.S. of A. Non grounded cable by the way like most appliances too.
So in the world of so many BluRay players is this a Hero, or a Zero?
Well depends. Value is in the equation, than yes, it is a fine buy. Award winner in the UK at the time. And a Stunner in the Bluray view mode. Stunned in the stream mode. Very wounded on the primitive user interface, and only middling streaming performance, and scaling.
Only the Bluray playback and the fine value price push this to a 4 star, and only just.
Final thoughts and recommendations.
If outright performance over all is your Raison D'etre. This is NOT your player. The Oppo BDP-103 will sink this battleship all day and night long. However if a fine Bluray playback is what you need in the Sub 200 dollar mark it is one of the better though not great values right now. The low profile, and very light body build will not fool you into it being a much more substantial product than it is, as it certainly is NOT. The Streaming content, though generous is half baked, as is the user experience. So there are some glimmer of fine greatness here, just nothing that says a complete refined, and modern Media Player for your HT spread that is moderate to high end. While certainly enjoyable in its own right, the Sony does not stand out enough to get a must buy recommendation for me.
So in the end, it gets a provisional recommendation with the Streaming performance, and ancient user experience holding back what would have been a pretty darn good package overall.
