Top Customer Reviews
Other adaptors I own for use with devices like the "Wii" proved to have superior reach compared to the Sony adaptor. Sony would do well to take a lesson from Nintendo and allow for more compatibility with other brands! Also, if your blu-ray player doesn't include sufficient built-in memory (as I found with mine), you will need to add a fast external USB drive with a lot of space before you can access certain features available from services like Netflix or BD live etc.
TO SONY: Rather than hide the facts in small print, BE HONEST enough with your customers and put it in writing ON THE BOX! Having the right information will help you sell more product "AT THE TIME OF THE ORIGINAL" purchase. You'll find your customers less frustrated with you and your products if you're open and honest about what your products require for them to work "AS ADVERTISED!"
We should have read a little bit closer but 'wireless ready' seems unambiguous to me. We could have taken it back and looked for another BluRay with wireless built in, but we probably would have saved only a few bucks.
Bottom line is that the BluRay player should have had the wireless adapter built in, or the adapter should have only cost $30. They're charging over twice the price that is necessary but we love the Netflix capability that it delivers.
I probably should have only given this three stars based on the exorbitant price but I dropped them one for the need to order the adapter and have to wait for it.

1) Purposely not include wifi in your TV
2) Make the tv only work with sony's wifi adapter instead of a standard usb wifi adapter
3) Markup the price by 400% of a regular adapter and put a sony sticker on it.
Add insult to injury, it doesnt even offer any good content.
Instead of paying over $70 for this useless crap, get yourself an apple tv for $99, it will do everything this adapter does and much more. Or if you dont like apple,-insert any brand- wifi ready media box for much less.
