Easy to use5/27/2012
Set up is easy and operation is pretty simple. I like it !
Good product, the built-in wifi is great and works well. Fast loading time. Plenty of connections to suit any TV or stereo system. Would like to see move control options on the front, but most players are getting away from that.
good bluray player for home use5/9/2012
I have tried some brands but sony is the best. I really enjoy it.
Sony player is good in quality as well as design. However, it's a little bit more expensive than other brands.
This blueray player was ready to go right out of the box. Truly amazing quality watching 3D movies! I'm so glad that I went with this BRP after many days and hours of research on which was the best one... Sony continues to produce top of the line products!
Sony does it again!12/24/2011
Great player at sale price of $99. Loads way faster than my old Panasonic BD65 without going through a minutes long bootup process. Even when powered down, when you push the eject button it opens right away. Currently use this with a Sony 46" NX810 3D TV and works well together. Watched Shrek in 3D and looks great. A couple of minor downsides (at least to me) are that the front panel buttons are tiny especially the eject, but most companies are eliminating front panel buttons to shave costs. Good luck finding any buttons on a Samsung. The other is that it lacks an optical audio output which I like better than coax but those are personal preferences.
The Widow Maker:That's a Good Thing12/7/2011
I never had a BluRay player, never streamed anything and never really saw plain DVDs upgraded to 1080. I had no accounts for movies or music and had no real idea of what to expect. When my 5 year old DVD player crapped out I figured that going to Bluray would be the logical step. I researched for 2 months examining everything from WI-fi to red rays. Every side step seemed to bring me back to this unit. When it went on sale I pulled the trigger on this, a Yamaha A-V unit and a decent router. O happy day. Installation took less than 2 hours including wi-fi. Had to borrow neighbor's BD Harry Potter disc and I was hooked. Whatever you read about sound improving is an understatement at the least. I played an old Clint Eastwood and Clyde movie and heard fight noises I never knew existed before. Looks like I am forced to re-buy "Star Wars" in BD and then the Potter series as well. The BDP-S580 is a superb unit and well worth the price. Highly recommended!!!!
Great and easy to hook up!9/22/2011
I absolutely love this player. I had purchased the Sony S380 for my bedroom, as I didn't need the WiFi accessibility. However, I wanted to purchase one for my living room. Researched and researched, finally this went on sale. With the price, it's the cheapest with the most features and quality. If you need wifi, invest in the the S580, because the adapters are $$$. To hook into the wireless, it was a breeze, scan and it found it, chose it. DONE. To register the player, it was easy as I had a previous account and it hooked into my Amazon Prime without me having to do anything! The Media App works on my HTC EVO 4G and love it (much better than the remote it comes with). Wifi connection seems stable, especially with the router being several rooms/walls away. Upgrades the picture quality of a dvd to HD and looks beautiful, as well as the sound! Great player :)
