This was my first purchase from Abt and I will consider them for other purchases in the future. Good price, delivery and Customer Service. This player was easy to set up and worked perfect from the time I plugged it in. I would recommend it to anyone. In fact, my son had it and recommended it to me. I have an LG DVD Recorder and a TEAC CD turntable Recorder that work great, but all of the discs I record look noticably better when played on the Blu-ray. I couldn't be happier with it.

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.

                Overjoyed with ABT's informing me consistently as to its shipping date (it was backordered). Excellent all around job so far! I will likely be buying from ABT again in the future!

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

                      My primary use is playback of physical media. CD's,SACD's DVD's, Blu-ray discs,and 3D Blu-ray. It does an excellent job of upconverting DVD's to 1080P and delivers full multi-channel DSD over HDMI for SACD's.
                      Has dual HDMI out's for receivers that don't support 3D or for those having HDMI problems with long cable runs when an AVR is inserted into the run.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Delivery was prompt but the player suffered from a UPS bump. After power up, the disc tray wouldn't open. Customer service for the return was great. I returned it to the store in person for the exchange and couldn't be happier. The store personel, both sales and security, were extremely helpful in tracking down the remaining player that was in inventory.
