      I bought the BDP-CX960 for two weeks now and like it a lot. The only thing I disappointed is that this unit is not Netflix streaming device ready. I am a netflix member but can not utilize this player to stream the instance movies. I am considering to return it and purchase the Samsung BD-P4600 which has the Netflix streaming enable. I hope Sony will have a firmware update soon to support streaming technology so I don't have to buy multiple devices. Last thing I wish is that the movie pictures can be zoomed in like Netflix instance streaming so you can see it clear.

      Here's a list of things that need to be addressed:... ...SONY, please let everyone know that these issues are being worked on.... ...#1 Direct Disc Access via IR Command, without this, this unit is useless to those with programmable remotes using macros to select a disc.... ...#2 The ability to scroll lower than 1 and higher than 400 so that you don't have to scroll through 400 titles... ...#3 Bigger Cover Art, should be able to use the USB storage if memory is the issue... ...#4 Ability to upload your own cover art, Gracenote doesn't have everything and sometimes incorrect, plus I want to be able to have cover art for home movies... ...#5 USB Keyboard entry/edit of disc info, this would make things much easier than using the remote... ...I hope SONY can make this happen, if so, my overall rating will jump to excellent and I will highly recommend this unit for all custom installs.

      disappointed with results

      By dlcoker

      from Virginia Beach, Virginia

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

      Have had my player for a little more than a year now. At first it was great and had little problem until disc titles would disappear, then some new Disney blu ray movies just stopped loading and will not play. I have bought new disc's thinking something was wrong with the disc, same problem. Also allot of different blu ray disc just lock up and stop playing in the middle of the movie. My unit is connected to the internet and gets all the automatic updates, but the problems are still there. To set the record straight--- this does not hold 401 disc, it holds 400 with the "RENTAL" slot being #1 out of 400. I also have had a Sony DVP-CX995V which is a 400 disc DVD player for about 4 years. Had to have the reader replaced after 3 years of heavy use, but it does not have the PLAY issues that the Blu ray player does...

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

        EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Despite my long list of overly-picky "cons", I am still glad I purchased this Blu-ray mega changer. PROS: Holds 400 discs. Plays Blu-ray, DVD or CD discs. DVD playback quality is near HD. Downloads title, year, director's name, lead actor's name, rating (like PG-13) and genre from Internet. Sorts by title, slot or year. Groups by genre, director or lead actor. Dedicated SORT and GROUP buttons on remote. Displays jacket picture in directory. After adding more discs, LOAD function only adds data for new discs, without overwriting changes made to existing discs. Very fast directory scrolling. Drill down to track names on Audio CDs. Fast and easy menu system. Easy firmware upgrades from Internet. + 100 button on front of unit speeds up physical navigation. Remote can also be used to control TV and AMP. CONS: Too tall to fit into most cabinets. Too deep to fit onto most shelves. Table top only. No 3D. Despite its size, it cannot flip discs like my older (and much smaller) Sony 300 disc DVD changer. No keyboard port for editing disc data. Editing disc data via remote is very time consuming. Disc data downloaded via Internet from Gracenote is not always accurate. Title, year and rating are almost always correct. Genre is mostly correct (obviously, this is somewhat subjective). Lead actor is often incorrect. (I do not know director's names well enough to comment on their accuracy.) Gracenote has not yet learned that you should ignore articles such as A or THE at the beginning of the title name to permit proper sorting. With all of its sorting and grouping capabilities, I could not believe that it could not group by video format (Blu-ray vs. DVD). Your only clue, prior to playback, is a little blue bar at the top of the jacket picture for Blu-ray discs. When grouping by lead actor or director name, the people are sorted by their first name, not their last name. Jacket picture is small. But, if that speeds up directory scrolling, I am OK with that. During prolonged scrolling, directory listings are not displayed. Rental slot is just as narrow as all of the other slots. Disc eject feature is shallow - making discs somewhat difficult to retrieve. Like most Blu-ray players, this changer requires about 30 seconds to power up. Despite stated specifications, does not recognize CD-Text data. (See, I told you I was picky.)

        I think this is a great or I would not have bought the second one. i only have three complaints 1. too long to turn on. 2. can not link multiple units together. Have to turn one off and turn the other on. It would be nice if you could access all the DVD in both units at one time. 3. Unit is way too deep to fit in a cabinent and hook up cables.

          Pros

          • Contain most all your discs in one place so the kiddies don't mess them up.

          Cons

          • Outside editing the name on writeable discs you can't edit anything else

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

            It sure does take up a lot of room, like stated elsewhere.
            It may be slow, but it beats getting up and down when playing a series of discs.
            If I could get only one wish for this, I would just like to be able to edit the genre on the writeable discs.

              only major problem is limited access to internet. only easy workaround is to buy a single slot BR DVD player and use it for access to netflixs and one time use of DVD such as rentals and guest use.

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

              I bought this player for its storage capabilities,DVD/CD player, connection to the BOSE system, and memory to locate CD/DVD. The screen display make it easier to locate music and movies, and it excels in this regard. It is like all SONY DVD players that I have owned, it is slow to turn on, and sometime I am unable to tell if the player is OFF or ON, and at times it goes OFF automatically, while we are trying to power it ON.

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

                  Please let me know when you integrate the Model: NSZ-GT1. Make sure to add 3-D, thunderous 6.1 wattage, wireless connectivity, and a large download storage capacity.
                  Thank you.
