I never thought that I'd find a Blu-ray 3D player that could match my PS3, but the 790 does--and then some. I've compared it with Oppo and Panasonic players only to find that it not only equals them but surpasses on almost every critical point. i have paired it with my Onkyo 5010 receiver and the Panasonic 7000u projector. Rarely have I been so impressed at the quality of the image projected as I have been with this combo. Perhaps these units "like" to play together synergistically or maybe I just got lucky but I couldn't recommend this combination more highly. After watching my first DVD on the unit, I found myself screening films I haven't viewed in years to make sure the quality of the picture remained. I was surprised to find that it did. My experience with 3D was also impressive. I reviewed such excellent 3D source material as "Hugo" and "Avatar". ghosting and real depth in the picture. I even watched the new fake 3D version of "Titanic" with some small degree of awe. The audio from the 790 was also impressive. Although it is a very subjective point of view, certainly the sound from my 11.2 channel receiver was outstanding and impressive. To my ears it had never been matched by my Panasonic DVD player and the latest Denon receiver. I just finished watching "The Expendables" (...and, trust me, expendable it is) because, to my knowledge, it's the first disc truly encoded with 11.2 audio channels. The sound field was as impressive as the film was mediocre. I have played with all of the tech options that are available on the 790 but I've never found any that were an improvement or the factory originals. I do look forward to combining the 790 with a 4K disc when they arrive or a regular disc upscaled by this player. Indeed, the fact that this Sony contains this option already makes it future proof to some extent. I consider the 790 the best value I've ever received from a player. Combine this with the stellar video performance and I can truly say that I look forward to hundreds of hours of excellent entertainment from the unit. ...Now if the'd just get rid of the annoying buttons and include a back-lit remote, I would be the totally happy couch potato I feel I deserve to be! tc

This is my second one. The first arrived damaged (bd rom drive door) and was exchanged. Setup was fairly easy, and it plays Blu ray discs beautifully. Using the wireless internet feature, however, was not so great. I was able to connect all my Internet services except Netflix. Player would lock up and screen go black. I worked up to 3rd level Sony tech support, who concluded that my dsl wasn't fast enough. The next day,when dsl was running at 3mbs, I tried to connect to Netflix again. Same result. I was able to connect to netflix with the first machine I received. I can live without Netflix, I suppose, because I don't want to go through the exchange process again.

Best Smart BD recorder


from Vancouver, WA

Comments about Sony Black 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

Excellent network features. Movies load quick and It has never stalled when watching a movie like on Netflix. I like the full width case; it looks nice in my stereo rack. Manufacturers are moving to a small form factor - too bad IMO.


Nice Design Poor Build


from NYC

Comments about Sony Black 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

I used to buy Sony products for quality and build; however, I can no longer say that. This is the second one of these products that I have bought that failed in some way (the first stopped playing DVDs and the second just completely failed within 6 months of purchase.). I would look for another manufacturer.


Great Blu-Ray player


from Seattle,Wa.

Comments about Sony Black 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

I was reading my Sound&Vision magazine and saw an article on the Sony bdp- s790 blu -ray player and went to look at one. It was what i wanted and more. I bought it and it was amazing. It has so many extras it's great. I was looking at oppo's for twice the price , and the Sony had just as good of picture,tho the sony is not as heavy. No nrrd for a smart TV when you have a smart Blu-ray player of this quality!


Player is a better than a playstation 3


from Scarville, Iowa

Comments about Sony Black 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

I went shopping for a blu-ray player to replace a PS3 for home theater use. The PS3 has the horrible bluetooth remote and NO simultaneous hdmi/composite video output. The commonly available blu-ray players ONLY have hdmi output. The player in this review has an infrared remote, composite video output, and wireless internet capability. These features allow me to control it with a universal remote and watch discs or Netflix in any room. HOWEVER, the hdmi and composite outputs are NOT simultaneous! BUT, they do allow the transition screens to be seen at the lesser resolution on either style screen, which makes switching resolutions easier. The PS3 output disappears when in transition, so you must change it from the screen at the other end ; meaning, right now, my PS3 has no output until I hook it to a low-res tv so I can change it back to hdmi. This player has solved many problems over my PS3, and integrated well into my home theater. The lack of tactile buttons on the player makes operating this player without a remote very difficult. Such as attempting to load a movie; there is no visible button to turn it on or eject the previous disc.


Excellent Sony quality


from Nebraska, USA

Comments about Sony Black 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

Sony has been my "go to" manufacturer for years, and this player lives up to my expectations. No problems encountered, and it plays all my discs now since I've retired my other player. Highly recommended.


Excellent player

Comments about Sony Black 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

Love this machine, makes even my old DVD's look great......way to go Sony


Failed out of the box


from Seattle

Comments about Sony Black 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

Bought this to accompany my 4K. Should have stepped up on this as well! First failed in a week, replacement had to be rebooted and multiple software/firmware upgrades. Slow to respond to remote, if I used it more I would be more disappointed, but, the internet on the TV makes up for the low use. New 4K movies would be nice, but how often can you watch Spydy and the others.

My First Blue-ray Player


from Santa Rosa,CA

Comments about Sony Black 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

I am very pleased with this player. I have the Fringe series on dvd and I must say that the picture is amazing, much ,much better than when played on a standard dvd player. Great!!


the unit set up was quick ...


from seattle wa

Comments about Sony Black 3D Blu-ray Disc Player:

the unit set up was quick and easy and is very quick in loading disks making them ready to play. Movies look great, especially Blu Ray disks, and thus far the unit has been glitch free. We had an older more expensive Sony Blu Ray model before this unit and we find this unit far superior. Glad we made the change
