The price is perfect for all the options.This is a great system for a medium or small room, a Large room You would need a more powerfull system.The sound quality is outstanding. I did have to go into the sony store to show me how to set up the speakers there is no Bass,Trouble etc adjustment, you just adjust the power for each speaker with a easy to use interface, It comes with a centering device that will auto set the sytem for you by plugging it into the system and setting it in the middle of the room but i like a lot of Bass so i had to set that myself (i didn't understand the PER-SPEAKER setup at first now i love it).I was unable to set my Sony XBR 9 TV Remote to interface with the BDV-E770W so thats another Con i have found but thats a XBR remote con not really a E770W con.I also have a Sony PS3 and when i put a DVD into it, the upscaleing is much much better then the E770W it's noticeable BUT NOT A SYSTEM KILLER it's still great, Blu-Ray look then same on the E770W as with the PS3.

Purchased system based on it's ability too stream content from home network. After using the unit for some two weeks it is evident that it supports only a few video formats for streaming, one of them is not avi files. The sound quality is quite impressive, however the base gets too be a bit much at times and have not researched a way to reduce its level. The presets for audio are limited, compared too our old Sony system, of course the old system was a surround / receiver unit without a disk player. Unless you are sitting in a pitch black room, the display on the front of the unit is very dim even after setting it to it's brightest setting. I have registered the product three times now and each time I return to the site for support it doesn't show up. I have tried repeatedly too register the product for backstage pass, extended support etc., movies on demand, the web site tells me that this option could take 12 hrs to set up, well after two weeks I would expect it would happen, NOT! I can do without the movies on demand option however it just bothers me when something won't perform as advertised. As for the Blu Ray player, playback is smooth with crisp picture quality even while pausing. The front controls are not lit and I find myself fumbling around with them trying to choose options, the only one I can accomplish without great difficulty is eject / load, forget trying to navigate the onscreen display with these unless you put them too memory using the manual. All in all I / we enjoy the unit and are pleased with our purchase, just that we thought there would be more control over the audio portion.

USB Port Isn't Working

By 

from Undisclosed

The USB port in my system doesn't recognize any USB port or flash drive that I put in it. It starts loading, then after a few seconds it says "stop". I can't listen to music that is on my drives and I'm disappointed.

Quality of sound good but not loud enough at all

By

I bought this system for my living room and it was not loud enough. On the dolby setting with max volume I have trouble hearing dialect in a movie. Packing it up and going to upgrade.

Pros

  • Easy To Set Up

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Smaller Rooms

    My radio in the office died. This was the best option for the price. FM works well and plays cd's. I wouldn't use it for a surround sound system for watching movie's. If you do, do not expect too much and buy extra speaker wire.

    not so impressive

    By 

    from Alberta, CA

    it is good but i wasn't really impressed...and i even thought that i might have bought something defective because the volume was already at 15 and you only hear a little sound. at volume 20 then at least you can hear but you really have to use the maximum volume then, before you will be satisfied. it would be excellent if it is louder.
