Pros Easy to use, cool features. But when Bravia goes down, you lose all entertainment, it happened twice in two months. Im sending it back for repairs.it froze on me. Weak Sony customer service. 7-14 days return. Wish they would add hulu.
Cons Don?t like the Proprietary ?Bravia? web system. wish you can have more access to internet sites. Wish it would get hulu. I heard you can crack the software but at your own risk. I heard that Xbox can do it all.
Summary Over all it was a good unit. I really like the Netflix instant downloads. You can order movies from Amazon, but only for 24 hr period. YouTube is ok. But make sure you take notice that when buying this unit; you have to buy a separate wireless router. The kind Sony recommends. Not sure if you can use any others.
Pros - Fast loading of Blu-ray discs.
- Netflix and Amazon VOD playback quality as good as Roku HD (Sony firmware v.123 - 12/22/09).
- Display for DVD and BD shows codec and bitrate.
- Theatre mode improves contrast without pushing black level too hard.
Cons - Netflix and Amazon VOD take longer than the Roku to start playing.
- Needs user-supplied USB flash drive for BD Live
- Remote could be better.
- Wi-Fi not built-in (I use Wi-Fi for Roku HD, ethernet for BDP-N460).
Summary I feel bad for the consumers who have had trouble with their units, but so far mine has been good. Note: I am on Verison FiOS, with 25 Mbps download. I am in agreement with others who have said that video streaming sputtered a bit every so often, but for me this disappeared with the update to firmware version 123. Sony's release note says it "Improves connectivity for Internet video."

Pros Easy hookup, intergrates with Bravia TV well, new to Blue ray and big screen, excellent picture with the couple of Blue rays watched. Upgrades regular dvd's very well.
Cons No wi-fi, no onboard memory, and no tray button on remote.
Summary Overall impressed with picture quality and ease of use. Not hooked up for streaming yet but have plans. Purchased as a package with a 52" V series Bravia. Great for movies. Also have a Sony sound bar connected. All I need now is a universal remote!
Pros Excellent Blu-Ray playback, cood dvd upconversion, excellent menu configuration, very good streaming.
Cons no memory included, settings menus are a little confusing
Summary I normally hate sony products, but this is an excellent product. I have had no problems with this product.
Cons After less than 1 year of use the player started jamming; the disc mechanism is cheaply built; the entire player is cheaply built
Summary I have learned to do a lot of searching before buying any piece of electronics. Don't trust SONY name! It looks pretty outside (great branding and marketing), but most of the stuff is cheaply built, poorly put together, with little effort of quality control and reliability.
