Pros Seamless integration with TVs' remote; easy installation.
Cons Initially, with first version of firmware - performance was low. Now with at least 2 updates performance has drastically improved.
Summary Me and my wife love this product we just wish more channels would be added; and also more content by Sony... They made it, they should have more content!!! We've only had one problem with one of the updates... It got stuck some how and I contacted Sony Support. They had it fixed shortly:) After that we've had no problems with it, except for wishing for more content from other providers and the current providers too! Especially CBS & Sony! You can get NetFlix too! YAY! My wife has her NetFlix account on the PS3 and I have mine on the Bravia IVL:) There's a lot of content, it's just that 'they' need more!
Pros The literature failed to say an ethernet wire was required and that the unit comes without it. So what do you do if your internet source is on the other side of the house? String a cable across yours walls and ceiling? And for what? Absurd.
Cons I couldn't get it to work. I got tangled up in cables--hdmi, usb, AC, and ethernet--with no place to attach the ethernet.
Summary The concept is promising, but Sony should not have released this unless it required no more than 2 cables. Either a wireless device, or an internet receiver built into the set, is required to make this thing the least bit attractive.
"Worthless!!"on by diegocevallos
Pros None is worthless
Cons Does not work with certain ISP/IP addresses in the US. It seems that the service is just available for the US, there are unfortunately several IP addresses in the US are not in a database of a Malaysian company that provides insight to sony about IPs
Summary Avoid headaches and very bad customer service. Don't buy it!
"got it free"on by Rchfssm
Pros some nice features
Cons Not well thought out
Summary I bought My new Sony Bravia @ Costco. This thing came free with it. The TV was a great deal so I would have bought the TV with or without the link. I have a PS3. I figured Sony would have thought enough about this to allow you to connect it to your PS3, which has a wireless connection built in, via an ethernet cable and be in business. Alas that doesn't seem to be the case. It seems that I need to buy a separate wireless Bridge to run this thing. I can't figure out why Sony wouldn't try to marry all the stuff together. Can't they picture a guy after buying his new bravia that comes with the link on it saying, " I could buy a Blue ray player and wireless adaptor, or I could spend just a little more and get a PS3 and get a game player too."?
Pros Looks good and sounds good
Cons Not compatible with all Bravia TVs., and you must have a USb port on the back to be compatible
Summary Waste of time and money and not worth the effort...just buy and Apple TV or Vudu..its better and has more content!
