SONY reliability at a bargain price for a (nearly) full-featured Blu-ray streaming player is what this device delivers. I waited to write a review until I had more than three months of experience using this model (actually using three of these; living room, media room, and bedroom). I'll say upfront that I prefer SONY products and use SONY televisions and high-end audio equipment throughout the house. The initial set-up was easy; one device is on a wired connection and two use wireless bridges (read the box or specifications: "network ready") to connect to the Internet. Establishing the streaming services was a single effort for each service on each device and has been problem-free since the initial set-up. Registering the devices and linking services through the SONY site was the expected normal effort. Blu-ray playback has been flawless even using rental discs that aren't in pristine condition. The lack of sufficient onboard memory doesn't allow the use of disc-related online content without adding USB storage, but that is a minor annoyance rather than a true problem. Device updates haven't caused device or services disruptions or the need to re-establish any service connections. Additional streaming services added since the original purchase and set-up have been okay, but beyond the well-known services, i.e., Crackle, Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, etc., there really isn't much vital general listening or viewing content that are important to add. The user interface is not slick or pretty, but it is easily navigated because it is so simple. SONY user interfaces are generally kind of clunky by today's standards; however, they are simple and do what needs to be done and that's more important than pretty. Media Remote App support would make the interface more palatable, though. Overall, this is a performer of SONY-expected quality at a bargain price. DNLA support (like on the SMP-N200 media player) and Media Remote App support would make this an ideal device and an even greater bargain as well as a five-star rating. However, I'm very pleased with all that I got in performance and features for the price that I paid.

I am very frustrated after having my second PlayStation 3 stolen. The gaming isn't the thing we missed the most it was Netflix. Don't get me wrong the gaming was missed too. I bought this blu-ray player to be able to have the Netflix service available to us again. I also wanted to check out Hulu Plus. I bought three months worth of Hulu Plus on gift certificate/pre-paid cards. I still cannot get anything but youtube . The player makes you register with a code for each app you want[(it doesn't just come right on). Thats cool except for the error code I get each and everytime I've tried to get this hunk of you know what working. The Hulu Plus pre-paid cards I'm also finding out are really useless unless they get your credit card number too. So whats the reason for even selling pre-paid Hulu Plus if you still have to fork over your credit card number. To me this has been nothing I would recommend to anyone. Sony customer service is a joke too. You might as well put your story on tape and play it back for the 10 people you have to explain it to before being cut off . That would be less tedious than saying it over and over again.

Good Investment - With Exceptions

By 

from Cranston, RI

Comments about Sony Black Blu-Ray Disc Smart Player:

Watching Blu-ray discs on the Sony Blu-ray Disc player is a major improvement of picture quality over regular DVD viewing. The Sony player offers all of the features and options that I need. The menu is somewhat easy to navigate, once you get familiar with it. The only issue that I have with this player is that when streaming video from one of the available sources such as Netflix or Hulu Plus, there are annoying breaks in the sound. I am not sure if it is the network or the player, but it happens all of the time. Also, there are quite a few instances in which I select Netflix and the player has trouble connecting with their server.

Excellent Choice

By 

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Sony Black Blu-Ray Disc Smart Player:

I was so glad to find this Sony BX39 Blu-ray Player that has composite cables for televisions that don't have a HDMI connection. It shows such vibrant pictures and clarity. I'm thinking about purchasing another one for my other Sony TV. This time I think I will get the BX59; these are the only two models I found that have composite cables e.g. red, white & yellow jacks. Thank you Sony for making these two models.

So-So. Frustrating to use "Netflix" feature

By 

from Cicero, NY

Comments about Sony Black Blu-Ray Disc Smart Player:

I rarely use the Blu-Ray player, since I watch a lot of Netflix and that is the primary reason I bought this player. Unfortunately, about half the time, the unit will "freeze" while I'm using this feature. Holding the "Power" button for 10 seconds SOMETIMES works - meaning the unit will then power down and I start the whole process over again. Otherwise, you literally have to unplug the unit and plug it back in again to access the Netflix feature again. Just to put this in the proper context - I'm submitting this review on May 3, 2014. To this date, I have not seen a patch or upgrade to the firmware that resolves this issue. It's really unfortunate because up until now, I always associated the Sony name with quality.
