This is an awesome little player! I am a Ballroom dance instructor and I use this player every day! In the studio, I swivel and flip the screen and study our dance training videos while moving around on the dance floor with the player in my hands. The picture quality is really impressive on its LCD screen and I like that I can hook it up to a hi-def TV via HDMI. The menu options are many and easy to navigate. There are only a few things I would improve upon. The sound quality from the built-in speakers(which isn't bad for as small as they are) could be better. The buttons are sometimes unresponsive at first and require a second touch. Having a back-light of some sort on the buttons would make watching movies in the dark easier. Overall this is a fantastic player and I forsee getting many more hours of enjoyment from it!

I am usually pleased with my purchases from Sony. However, after purchasing this blu ray player to stream videos from Hulu I was greatly disappointed. The product description states it has the capabilities to stream from various Apps including Hulu. Sony's customer service was a nightmare, they kept blaming Hulu & my ISP rather than trying to alleviate the problem. After numerous fixes by Sony, Hulu & my ISP the device still won't stream Hulu smoothly. I am upset with Sony as Hulu streams perfectly through another manufacturer's blu ray player in a seperate room. I hope Sony will test their product more closely before advertising that their product has certain features. I have tried to compromise with Sony & asked to exchange this product for a model that works with no prevail. As an loyal customer of Sony I am deeply disheartened.

Works great

By

Comments about Sony Black Blu-Ray Disc Smart Player:

Plays blue ray and DVDs well. Remote is easy to lose but works well. It's a good Netflix and Hulu player as well. It would be great if there were more apps. Hoping for HBO Now.

Good Player for a low price

By

Comments about Sony Black Blu-Ray Disc Smart Player:

We love the Sony Blu-ray player with streaming. We've had no problems with the Blu-ray part of it. Sometimes when streaming we freeze up and cannot connect. We then have to unplug and restart. Other than that, no problems. :)

Blu Ray Discs skip constantly

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Black Blu-Ray Disc Smart Player:

Every new blu Ray disc I watch skips every 5 seconds! It's pretty annoying! DVDs work and so do older released blu ray discs but new ones just constantly skip. Wouldn't mind trying to see if I can fix the problem or just use it watch DVDs that's all!

Blank Screen

By 

from Texas

Comments about Sony Black Blu-Ray Disc Smart Player:

We had no issues connecting to the internet, or watching movies on Netflix and such. But the screen goes blank while watching Netflix, just goes black, no sound, so message, just black. It can not be our cable because we use the cable for the Geni too. We have not tried to watch DVD's or blue rays yet. I may be taking this back to the store if I cant stop it from going black.
