"Perfect for Me!"4.5 starson by CraigRenner
Pros: + Produces astounding picture quality
+ Beautiful device
+ Sound is fantastic
Cons: - Command response time slow
- Pricy and impending format uncertainty
Summary: About ten minutes to open box, slide it into my cabinet and look at Blu-ray disc. The image is the best that I have seen on a 40 inch screen. The sound is fantastic. Old SD disc image quality is boosted greatly on this machine by the way. The operation seems as smooth as can be. My previous player was the first machine that Sony produced.
That one has performed flawlessly and should continue to do so in its new location. I have no reason to expect less from this Blu-ray. The box is a work of art... kind of like a special edition camera. It would be a major project just to make an empty chest that looks this good. Photos don't do it justice. In my cabinet it looks very different depending on the surrounding light.
The white function lights comes through the glass and look great. You can't beat the breakthrough over the top production quality of something like this. Yes, it is a very good buy. I'm just an audio/video freak... not a lunatic. I won't wait around for another drop of perfection. I will just enjoy this for many years.
*** if you will buy this Blu-ray disc player I suggest you have a compare with other model or newer model of Sony Blu-ray disc players at: www.amazon.com/gp/*************?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie%3DUTF8%26redirect%3Dtrue%26ref_%3Dsr_nr_n_0%26keywords%3DSony%2520Blu-ray%2520Disc%2520Player%26bbn%3D172514%26qid%3D1297391484%26rnid%3D172514%26rh%3Dn%253A172282%252Cn%253A%2521493964%252Cn%253A1266092011%252Ck%253ASony%2520Blu-ray%2520Disc%2520Player%252Cn%253A172514%252Cn%253A352697011&tag=***************&********=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957
