"I love it."on by Mikey10000
Pros Fast load time. Slim design. Netflix is good We have watched a bunch of flix and no problems whats so ever. I have the machine hooked directly to the router with 20 meg service. 3D on our KDL 55HX800 is GREAT!. DVD up conversion via HDMI is near HD.
Cons None. Even Netflix works great.
Summary Don't but this unit if you belive the neg reviews. I can't belive them as my machine works GREAT plus Im happy with the remote. I have a uni remote anyway. Let wife use the included remote so it's just fine. All the other neg reviews must have purchased a different unit as mine preforms GREAT.
Pros The Blu Ray player is great. Low noise, decent start up time. Connects well with my Sony Bravia tv and its Bravia Sync. It has a plethora of features to access through your home wi-fi making it a great choice (Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora, NPR, etc).
Cons The Netflix is completely way too slow to use. I still have to use my Wii for streaming Netflix in demand, but that in turn stifles the quality of the video. Gracenote is a little slow to load (when it does load), even with a new Cisco N Router.
Summary Great for the price. Even better if you have a Sony Bravia tv to hook it up with. Take it as you will for its online services though. Many features, but at least it does the one thing that I bought it for very well-play Blu Rays extremely crisp.
Pros Bluray's load Fast, Unit produces a sharp picture
Cons Netflix performance is unacceptable
Summary This unit does not connect to the Netflix website. It goes to a Sony site that acts as an intermediary between Netflix and the Bluray player. Its works great at 2 in the afternoon. At 7 pm, when traffic is high, - it makes the movie unwatchable. We have a wireless laptop, several desktops, and Xbox 360 that all work fine with Netflix. Its definitely not a network issue. Mine is going back.
Pros Easy to follow on screen setup, wifi works awesome throughout my home 3 stories, picture & sound quality is wonderful. Easy to operate and no apparent firmware challenges so far.
Cons The instructions could be a bit more helpful when networking to different servers on the network. Eventually figured it out, just took some patience with on-line research. More video play types would be nice.
Summary I purchased 2 of these from Costco running on cable internet via wireless with a Netgear WNDR3700 router and have incrediable viewing not matter what I'm watching. Setup was a breeze and when I decided to start completely over on one of the players no problems at all. The features are more than enough for my needs and have not had any of the issues I've read about the BDP-S570. And, just to note this is a true personal opinion and review; as many of us use these reviews in order to make informed decisions concerning products we're looking to purchase. Have a great day!
Pros Good blu-ray disc fast playback
Cons I have 2 BDP-S570's and 2 Insignia blu-ray wi-fi players.
The Insignia has much better quality Netflix streaming.
I tried hooking my Sony's up with the ethernet cable and the Netflix had no change from wi-fi.
Summary Don't buy it, if you want the best quality Neflix picture. Very dissapointed in the Sony streaming.
