Appearance-wise, the system looks very nice. The main unit is a nice glossy black with sensory buttons. The onscreen display in minimal and looks nice. Most of the detailed options are displayed on your tv screen.
Initial set-up was easy enough with color coded cables and a walk through upon turning on the system. There is even a self calibrating microphone, which helps the speakers calibrate to meet your needs based upon where you typically sit to watch movies. The manual is quite long, however, so I imagine advanced customizing of the system to your preferences can be a little more complicated.
The wireless surround sound is a great addition. You should know that it is not truly "wireless" in that there are wires that run from the rear speakers to an amplifier. That amplifier can sit anywhere behind your couch and connects wirelessly with the main unit. In other words, it is only wireless in that you do not need to run wires from the front to the back of the room.
This is a great purchase and one I am sure we will enjoy for many years.
contacted Sony for repair. that gave flat rate quote to fix since out of warranty. reasonable at 120 or so. then thought perhaps there was a blu ray that could replace this one for less. chatted online with sony sales and he let meknow the Sony BDPS3100 Blu-ray Player was compatible and they had it on sale for 80 or so dollars. awesome. meanwhile while I was about to go ahead and order this with the extended warranty this time, my son was taking apart the old one and fiddling with it and amazingly he got it working! He just said he jiggled some things and reconnected some things and now it is working, amazing what a 13 year old can do. so anyway, just wanted to mention this. These are pretty good machines for this cheap a price overall and we have never had any of the issues as others mentioned. Again I would recommend this system just get the longest warranty you can.
Be aware the real speakers are not wireless. The 2 rear speakers are wired to a wireless receiver. Where you don’t need the wire from the main unit to the back of the room, you still need wires connecting the wireless receiver to the 2 speakers.
I am disappointed the software has limited options on the type or format of movie files it will play. I want to stream video TS files or a disk image (iso) movie from my computer to the BDV-E780W. It has a very limited selection of video formats.
So given that problem, I write the movie to a DVD disk. Some disks it plays just fine and some it has all kinds for ‘read’ problems. I have an old Sony DVD player we keep in our bedroom that reads and plays everything. Many times we have to finish or watch the movies in bed on the old TV in stead of the new surround system.
The quality of the sound system is just medium. I had an old off brand system before. It had better sound all the way around.
The remote is poorly designed. Small and straight like a stick. In the dark, (We watch movies in our dark home theater) when you pick up the remote, your hand can’t tell what end is what. You have to look at it and the buttons are very small and black on a black remote with dark gray tiny print. Want to use the remote? Keep a flashlight handy.
This system is Sony’s cheap version of a Surround Sound - Home Entertainment System. Very limited thought went into it. They are really milking the Sony reputation on this one.
