Summary: This is a great bargain for those that's looking for a new and faster hot rod. This player loads many times faster then my Samsung BDP 1400. I was very shocked at the load speed difference. That alone is enough to want this player. The unit User Interface is setup just like all the latest Sony products, if you have a Sony Playstation, PSP or Bravia then you know what to expect. This unit come with a very easy to setup Wi-fi and wired internet connect. You can connect to Sony's Style where you can play your Slacker, Pandora and many more wedges right from your player. The unit has all the basic connections in back including HDMI, optical audio and RCA video and audio, but that's it, don't expect many more high ended inputs, because you won't get them with this until. It does have a USB jack in the front for pictures, audio and video, that's very handle to have. It does play most of the more popular formats, but doesn't do AVI, or MKV.
The players buttons are on a lip on the front of the unit, it's hard to read specially if it's dark in the TV room, it would have been nice if the buttons were pointing forward not up. This is a very minor grip because the remote work fine, though you can't read it during a dark movie, and there isn't a light on it. Though it has very basic features, this unit is fast, and that's what I wanted. Also a plus for some, it's 3D enabled, for people with the itching to get into 3D TV watching. I'm not one of them, but nice to see it's there in case I change my mind later.
I highly recommend this unit, especially for replacement unit like I was.
