This unit plays Blu-ray discs better than any I have seen. It also does a great job with DVD upscaling. Setup is extremely quick and easy. Disc loading, following selection, is about what I expected, about 20 seconds. The Gracenote lookup auccess rate will probably vary by each user's library content, mine was about 90% successful. That being said, the cover art success was only about 50%. For some reason a lot of the titles failed to retrieve cover art even though the title was found. You can manually modify the information retrieved, but you cannot add your own cover art. There is no support for this whatsoever. Manually entering info is rather tediious since you must use the number keys on the remote. A keyboard connection would be a big help here. The menu for selecting discs is basic but functional. It allows for sorting by title, genre or slot number. The cover art images are very small, making them difficult to see. Movement through the list is limited to up and down scrolling. Although scrolling is extremely fast, there are no shortcuts to move quickly through the list, such as skipping by entering a letter. Also a serious omission, if you wish to use a third party cataloging program for disc selection, is direct selection by slot number. They did, however, provide this capability if you use the RS-232 control feature. In my opinion if Sony were to upgrade the software with the following features, it would be close to perfect. . . User input of cover art. . Keyboard support for editing disc info. . Skip through list by letter. . Larger cover art images. . Direct disc sleection by slot number.

Should have included all of the above, all my modem/router plugs are taken, so it took me the whole morning to set up a wireless ethernet bridge, some of the BR discs were not recongnized even after checking with the database, and typing all the info using the remote it's a real pain. Regarding SACD, previous megachangers should have included HDMI output for the format, this one doesn't even play them, felt shortchanged again.

Hope it's better after . . .

By RaggieOne

from Houston, TX

Pros

  • Tell when I get to use it but having 400 dvd's readily accessible sounds great to me

Cons

  • didn't operate well; size matters

    Comments about Sony Black 400 Disc ES MegaChanger Blu-ray DVD CD Player:

    after cutting out a hole in the cabinet to fit this, it was connected and unfortunately got error codes 8000 and 8003 when loading more than one DVD; rental slot work twice, though, and video quality was grainy and poor. It is off to be fixed after two days of ownership, so hoping it comes back all better!

    AV Integrator's Review on new purchase

    By flawed

    from Los Angeles

    Pros

    • Amazing picture quality as opposed to other high end players

    Cons

    • confusing and upsetting operation
    • Hard to comprehend interface

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony Black 400 Disc ES MegaChanger Blu-ray DVD CD Player:

      The options to manage a few hundred bluRay discs are not great even these days. Either a Media Server and Manager or this unit. The painful procedure of copying discs one by one onto a computer is not my cup of tea so i decided over this unit. The picture quality is amazing, nice crisp images, beautiful contrast just superb.Disc loading and recognition is surprisingly fast, playback time is greatly reduced. The interface however need some serious work.
      It is not pleasing to the eye. The crossbar that worked great on PS3 and PSP is not for a $2000 unit. It is not at all intuitive or user friendly. The Metadata is extremely small and there are no options to change how its displayed. When you load 400 BluRays into the unit to go from the 1st disc to the last it is a nightmare to do so one by one. When its connected to a large screen TV (55"-65") there are a lot of wasted space due to the interface. It could be filled up nicely with cover art to make it user friendly and easy to operate as opposed to the tiny crossbar interface. I am very disappointed about this, it is virtually impossible to recommend this unit for friends or to customers that are asking for a solution to manage their media collection.
      However there is a solution by adding a media manager to this unit to over ride the clutter and the clumsiness of it all. Given that you want to spend an extra $2000 on top of the $2000 that you spent already.
      I am trusting SONY to come up with a solution in the next software upgrade. If they are in need of ideas just check out other consoles for an easily controllable, user friendly interface.They were pushed out of the high end TV market by the Koreans already and soon someone will make a better Changer with a better interface and no one will purchase an OK SONY unit at that time that is a lot more inferior and maybe a little bit more expensive. Just don't get the idea behind it. Give the customers what they are asking for to stay in the game. If you can't just get out right now, step aside and give way to the future of media management. Because no matter what SONY thinks about the cross bar interface user's just don't like it.

        Its a great machine and has potential. Would like the dvd art a little bigger, would like to see some sort of netflix or amazon streaming on this. I am weighting on returning it since I just bought it and I contacted tech support and they do not have any indication that it will support 3d with a firmware upgrade. For the money I think it should.

          Comments about Sony Black 400 Disc ES MegaChanger Blu-ray DVD CD Player:

          It does not bear repeating but my Blue Ray changer appears to be bug free and the video quality, both Blue Ray and upscaled DVD is breathtaking. WIth the improved sound, this is a noticable improvement over the 777ES I owned with an Escient sytem. With Escient out out business, I would recommend looking into third party solutions that are now plentiful to round out this unit and add a lot of high tech options like a robust user interface, easy fixing or creation of metada (I fix and create my metadata from my home office computer for instance) To learn what alot of experienced owers think, I suggest reading the AVS forum thread on this unit to be an informed buyer. I have posted some screen shots of the improved third part interface as well http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?p=18467734#post18467734. I would start on the last page and work back to the begiining as there are 44 pages currently. I really appreciate Sony stepping up and supporting the Blue Ray format, this is a spectacular piece of equipment and can be made into an awesome home theater system with the right third party add ons.

          from Virginia Beach, VA

          Comments about Sony Black 400 Disc ES MegaChanger Blu-ray DVD CD Player:

          After receiving the 7000ES I decided to give it a full test run. It was quite the experience despite some of the reviews I read. While there was no keyboard input, I would hardly call the device fatally flawed. I have few Blu rays which Grace note had titles for, and a few DVD’s it did not. But for the other DVD’s I did nothing but let the machine load the info. Manually adding titles via the remote was a pain, but I was able to make it happen. The Bluray video performance is outstanding, and the sound quality was awesome paired with my Pioneer SC-27 receiver. My wife went nuts screaming that noise was unbearable and wanted it down, until she saw what I was watching. Disc changing time was not bad... The 7000ES is supposed to have a superb scaler for SD DVDs, but I have yet to watch a SD disc on this player. The quality of the player seems to be first rate; the 5 year warranty is comforting should it fail later down the road. I later found out that Sony was putting out a firmware update late summer for 3D Bluray on PS3, so I emailed Sony Style to inquire if the 7000ES would also have an update. I was disappointed to learn that after spending almost 2K on this piece of equipment, that Sony has no intention to push a firmware update for the device to allow 3D Bluray playback & it costs significantly more than a PS3…Unreal)..I did voice my concern and hopefully Sony will take to heart my issue, rather than telling me I should consider purchasing another 3D Bluray ES player which will be available later this year...(NOT THE WORDS I WAS HOPPING TO HEAR) With a brand like Sony, I expect better…..

          Comments about Sony Black 400 Disc ES MegaChanger Blu-ray DVD CD Player:

          After receiving the 7000ES I decided to give it a full test run. It was quite the experience despite some of the reviews I read. While there was no keyboard input, I would hardly call the device fatally flawed. I have few Blu rays which Grace note had titles for, and a few DVDs it did not. But for the other DVDs I did nothing but let the machine load the info. Manually adding titles via the remote was a pain, but I was able to make it happen. The Bluray video performance is outstanding, and the sound quality was awesome paired with my Pioneer SC-27 receiver. My wife went nuts screaming that noise was unbearable and wanted it down, until she saw what I was watching.
          Disc changing time was not bad... The 7000ES is supposed to have a superb scaler for SD DVDs, but I have yet to watch a SD disc on this player. The quality of the player seems to be first rate; the 5 year warranty is comforting should it fail later down the road. I later found out that Sony was putting out a firmware update late summer for 3D Bluray on PS3, so I emailed Sony Style to inquire if the 7000ES would also have an update. I was disappointed to learn that after spending almost 2K on this piece of equipment, that Sony has no intention to push a firmware update for the device to allow 3D Bluray playback & it costs significantly more than a PS3Unreal)..I did voice my concern and hopefully Sony will take to heart my issue, rather than telling me I should consider purchasing another 3D Bluray ES player which will be available later this year...(NOT THE WORDS I WAS HOPPING TO HEAR) With a brand like Sony, I expect better..

          Sony has finally released an iphone app for its newer blu-ray players. How about spending a few minutes to update their top of the line $1800 unit to enable control through the app?!! This would enable them to (i) overcome the poor disc navigation (ii) allow editing of title information to correct it (e.g. the apple remote app incorporates a keyboard for editing) and (iii) make use of this beast simple! Come on Sony!
