However, unlike all of the reviews (on the Internet) of this unit that I read before purchasing, this unit does NOT have DLNA support for streaming music from your local network servers. In fact on page 35 of the included manual in the section "Playing files stores on a DLNA server" it specifically says: "Except for BDV-E370 U.S. models".
This is extremely annoying. It's obvious to me that this device *used* to have this feature, which is why all of the older reviews mention it. My guess is that it was removed in a software update. Yes, I did the network update and now it says that no other update is available. I didn't check to see if DLNA was available before the update. The related setup page for DLNA called "Connection Server Settings" in the "Network Settings" screen is also missing.
Unless you get a really good price deal on this, I'd recommend the BDV-E570 instead which has the DLNA support and also includes the WiFi adapter. I had a wired Ethernet, so the adapter wasn't a big deal. But if I had known that this unit really didn't support DLNA, I probably would not have bought it. Now that it's already installed and working, I'll probably keep it.Read more ›
The system was packaged very nicely and was easy to unbox and setup the system. I hooked up my DVR cable box into the Sat/Cable (Digital Coaxial input) jack. I hooked up my Playstation 3 into the TV (Digital Optical input) jack. (not into my television, but into the input named "TV" on the unit) When I try each source, it tells me on the unit's front LCD screen that I'm getting Dolby Digital.
Using the unit's blu-ray, I watched the movie "Stealth". I must say it was like a whole new experience. I could hear those fighter jets buzzing in the front speakers and then transfer to the rear speakers. It was definately pretty cool to watch (and now finally hear) that movie. After watching the movie, I played some Call of Duty: World at War on my PS3. It was amazing to hear the shooting of my gun and hearing things expload all around me. It really put me into the war zone.
I'm very impressed with the unit. I think it's a great value for what I paid. It doesn't have HDMI inputs, however, as stated above, I was able to hook up my existing equipment. I like how you can watch Netflix on the unit, along with Pandora Radio and a few other streaming services.
Overall, I'm very happy I bought the unit. It produces very nice sound, and for the price it is an excellent product. I'm not an expert on sound systems as this is my first unit. I'm not saying it's the best unit available, but for the price, it's a darn good unit! I love it and hope to enjoy it for years to come.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I would be happy to help.

I have spent a lengthy amount of time comparing this package to other top name manufacturers of similar products. (i.e. LG, Samsung, Panasonic). Not only did I find this to be amongst the cheapest of the bundle, I found it to have an outstanding array of features. If I had no information as to what this unit cost I would have guessed $400-500 given my experience using it over the past few days.
To break it down:
5.1 Channel Digital Surround Sound Speakers
3D Blu-Ray Player
Audio Inputs: 1 x Optical, 1 x Digital, 1 Set RCA
Remote that was easily programmed to also work with my LG TV
Media Remote app for iphone serves as complete control and works great.
A front and a rear USB input.
Excellent Sound quality and probably the finest subwoofer I've heard that is not independently powered.
Easy firmware update and audio/video adjustments
Superb collection of streaming internet applications (Netflix, Youtube, Pandora, Amazon, etc)
I also ordered both an Amazon Basics High Speed HDMI cable and Amazon Basics Optical Audio Cable. This was all that was needed to connect to my television.
It functions well with my LG television and I have also connected a 320GB external USB hard drive I purchased nearly a year ago. Using my iphone Media Remote app by sony I can completely control the unit, explore the contents of the hard drive, watch youtube / netflix in great clarity. Blu-ray looks great and performs well.Read more ›
