"Going to exchange it, though not sure it's broke...."3.0 starson by elguapoeg
Pros: Design is good, nice and thin, connections are adequate, and after only having viewed one Blu Ray disc, I was happy with video quality and everything seemed to work, and as I didn't pay a fortune for it, my expectations weren't very high.
Cons: No eject button on the remote??? The 'Home' setup menu is harder to navigate than it has to be. The 'Home' screen comes up when you turn unit on and doesn't go away until you insert a disk....would be nice to make it disappear.
Summary: The Setup menus are kind of cumbersome and not user friendly...I'll survive but not sure my wife can. This is my second Sony DVD player and I'm surprised the remotes are kind of cheap looking and they don't have an eject button. Might seem like a nit, but when every other manufacturer in the world seems to have an eject function on the remote, you wonder how much trouble or expense it could be for Sony to add one. It's nice to finish your movie, hit the eject on a remote, and walk up to retrieve your disc, rather than turn the lights up to find the unlit button on the unit. When you first turn the unit on, the "Home" screen (setup) comes on but you can't get rid of it until you insert a disc. I've hit every button on the remote, looked in the operator guide, went to the web for help.....couldn't find anything that would lose the annoying screen. Maybe not the biggest problem as such, BUT when you are watching a movie and press the Home button to change a setup feature or if you hit it by accident, you can't get rid of it, you have to eject your movie an reinstall it. This may be design intent or just a messed up player, but after reading the scare stories about internet firmware updates (turns your unit into a brick), I'm exchanging my Sony for a Samsung, Panasonic, LG...anything but Sony Blu-Ray.
