"Excellent Player"4.5 starson by dlmiley
Pros: Quick and easy setup (for wired users)
Huge variety of choices
Picture and sound quality
Cons: Icons a bit small (though not as bad as CNET claims)
Summary: I have a Sony BDP-CX7000ES changer for my blu-rays. It is an excellent player but it lacks streaming capabilities, so rather than buy a single blu-ray player just for streaming, I opted for this player instead. I am glad I did. It took me about 5 minutes get things set up. The player instantly connected to my network and told me of a new firmware update which took about 2 minutes. After that, I registered my player with Sony with a code provided by the player. Then, I activated it for Amazon, Netflix, and Pandora. The X-bar navigation is very easy (again, I don't know why the CNET editor is complaining). Picture quality and sound was good from all sources (including my personal videos and movies - the unit found all of my computers quickly). All-in-all, I would highly recommend this player to anyone looking for a high-quality, reliable network media device.
