location of this player is way less than ideal... in basement basically underground, wireless router upstairs on other side of house, player enclosed in a totally metal media cabinet which could hamper wireless connection, yet works flawlessly!!! netflix interface is great... shows with multiple episodes run consecutively without having to manually start each episode. this is exactly what i was looking for and couldn't be happier! fast load, seamless wireless connection even in terrible conditions, great PQ, LOVE IT!

I purchased this in Nov 2013 for our bedroom. It was the reviews about how fast the Wi-Fi, HULU, Netflix and other internet based apps load up that interested me. Prior to this I had a LG blu-ray player which worked just fine but it took a considerable amount of time to get the internet based apps to load. The internet based apps on this load up faster than on the LG but I have since purchased a Vizio smart TV and am using that for my internet based media due to how incredibly fast that is to open up/load up. The blu-ray player on this has a great picture but you WILL hear it switching tracks even at a moderate volume. It starts up/loads up fast which is a plus. I have a Sony BDV-E3100 5.1 home theater system and that does the same. I think that is the same device with just a bit more functionality. A guest of mine pointed out it's odd a big name like Sony wouldn't deal with an issue such as that. I don't use the blu-ray all too often in the bedroom but it is pretty distracting if you ARE watching a quiet scene in a film and hear the tracks switching inside the device. A couple of times while watching a DVD the playback stops and put me back on the "home" page with the DVD icon highlighed. If I hit the enter button it just starts back up but from the beginning of the DVD, not where I left off. That has not happened with a blu-ray disc, just a couple of differnet DVD's but that should not happen period. I have played the same discs on the other Sony player I have and that does not happen. Once the device shut off just as if I pushed the off button on the remote. I was no where near the remote. One more thing about the player is the design, the top is not flat. For whatever reason it's a squat pyramid shape. I'm not quite sure what the designers were thinking. Most people stack components. If you place anything on top of the player it's pitched at an angle and it's a mid sized component so if you are stacking, chances are you will be putting something smaller on top.That just seems to be an added expense on Sony's part in the manufacturing process. Just something to think about. I'm not sure I would recommend this to a friend. I'm in my 50's and have owned plenty of Sony in my life. I think they can clean up their act a bit.

from Undisclosed

I bought my Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Wi-Fi in June of 2014, and by the time September had rolled around it no longer played regular DVD's that it played when I first got the machine. I have run through all the troubleshooting and updating that I can, and can't seem to get it to work on anything except blu-ray movies. I also am not impressed with the user interface when using netflix and such. Everything is small, and considering I have 20/15 vision the fact that I have to lean forward to read stuff is kind of telling. I wouldn't recommend buying this machine to anyone I know, and I'm hoping I can still return it...they don't make that very easy though now do they?

Great Product


from Las Vegas, NV

I used to have and old Phillips DVD player with hdmi connection, and I though it was ok, however once I upgrade my system to this new sony DVD player the difference is huge.....even with the regular DVD discs you can notice the difference....

Super Value


from San Antonio, TX

Can't beat it for the price. Turns on fast, loads fast, and built in wi-fi works great. I can't believe that I paid so much for a high end Blu Ray player a few years ago when this Sony beat all my expectations for under $150.

A little disappointed


from North Smithfield, RI

Was excited at the prospect of watching 3D movies and the experience was great. Am a little disappointed in that for some reason i do not get the 5.1 sound that we really enjoy. I can play a disc on my other unit at the 5.1 is there; however, the Sony is very selective, and uses PCM in most cases. Most times the previews on the disc is in 5.1, but when the main movie starts it defers to PCM. Have learned to live with it; however...

One of my best purchases


from Los Angeles

This Player is like the Swiss Army Knife of BlueRay/Media players. It does it all. It's better than a Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV and all the other wanna be players and the video quality is excellent. I highly recommend this player.
