I bought this low-end, Blu-Ray Disc Player (Sony BPDS1200) for a family that ONLY uses it to play movies or audio CDs 1-2 times per week. No web surfing, no digital connections, etc. For this use it is quite fine. True plug and play...after all these years, it's the first device I could connect and use as intended. That's first EVER. Ease of use is quite good. Controls are mostly intuitive, even for technologically challenged family members. There is one difficulty, however. Occasionally when you stop using the player and turn off it's controls, it actually returns you to the television use (cable), enabling immediate TV viewing. Most times, it just gives you a blank screen and you must search out the TV's remote, find the input button and select the proper mode for cable viewing. Then you can resume watching TV. For this low-end use that deliberately avoids employing all the "features" loaded onto the device, it serves quite well and I would indeed recommend it to others. The price point--below $70 and sometimes significantly cheaper is also appealing.

I purchased this blue ray player in first week of April & it start having issues in 3rd week of April. My player does not eject disk & each time I need to watch a movie, I have to reboot the player by simply unplugging the wire for few mins & only then I can change the disk. I even called Sony with the Issue but they told me to ship this player to their Laredo Facility & they will try to repair this unit. I like most people work too many hours to actually go to post office, pack the player & hope that once they repair the unit it will work fine. I will just go and buy a different brand unit this time & save myself the aggravation & headache to deal with this blue ray player.

Comments about Sony Black Blu-Ray Disc Player With Streaming:
Was purchased to replace DVD player. Easy set up, clear viewing with regular DVDs. Do not own Blue-ray Discs, so I cannot comment on that. My only issue is that I cannot not get it to sync with my internet (Wi-Fi), which is why I cannot give it a higher rating. Sorry.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very good basic player
Very good load times for BD.Easy and simple to operate.This is just a very good entry level player.
from Waterford, CT, USA
Very functional for the price.
Got it because of the Sony name and the price tag. It's not Wi-fi, I didn't need it to be. Easy to use, no probs so far, use it for movie rentals and netflix mostly.
Great things come in small packages.
I've only used the BDPS1200 a short time, but it works flawlessly. Setup is easy, it boots up quickly and has several apps that I'll f'ind useful. Its most amazing feature, though, is its size. It has a smaller footprint than my iPad, so it fits anywhere. Its apps require wired Internet, so it needs to be located near an Ethernet port or a router. In my case, this is a perfect choice, since my home office is wired. It has turned my remarkably unremarkable flat panel TV into something special.

No complaints about this bluray player. The streaming works well with lots of choices and if even played AVI files off a USB that my computer wouldn't even play. It is virtually silent as can be in the quick start mode it starts up immediately to that usual Sony menu style.
Pleased with purchase
Easy, works well and knows just what to do even when I didn't. Beautiful picture.
Great for the price!
Love this unit, easy to setup, very user friendly.

I got far more out of this product than I ever expected. I spent $60 for it and it delivered big time. I could not stream shows on my smart TV using Netflix and Netflix Customer Service told me it must be due to my Internet speed which was wrong. Running my Internet through this Blu-Ray player it allowed me access to numerous online sites and streamed flawlessly. It also loads fast and automatically will switch back and forth to TV mode or Player mode just by turning it on or off, no intervention necessary. I have a wired Internet connection to this device and it works perfectly. Blu-Ray discs and standard discs played brilliantly.
