Rated 2 out of 5 by oQQQQQ8 good when it works, but three fails in 12 months.
Navigation is easy and picture quality great. But the thing keeps breaking, and Sony is very unresponsive on tech support. Fortunately I got SquareTrade coverage through Amazon, and they have offered me a refund. Sony just gave me the runaround.
First one dead on arrival; second one started flashing 2 seconds of display, 2 seconds of black; Third one started flickering then wend dead completely. The third one was smaller and had no display, and no numbers on the remote for setting codes up.
Tech support obsessed about whether the cable was high enough quality, but it works fine on my PC. If their product is more picky than a standard video card, they should include a cable with the product. Brand new cable didn't help.
I don't know what "offered for presale" means. I've owned this product nearly a year but am not selling it.
I never tried the 3D capability and was unable to set up wifi

I bought this unit to replace a Panasonic unit that died after just 8 months of use. It had never worked correctly anyway, as it never did connect to the internet via WiFi to do software updates (which I didn't confirm until after I saw how well this Sony unit worked).
This Sony unit connected immediately (with positive feedback, so I knew I was connected) and worked great, right out of the gate. I now have at least 5 dozen sites available, and many are free.
The Blu-ray functionality has been flawless. Even playing some scratchy old DVD's without issue.
The unit has a small footprint. The remote is also smaller than most, which was a plus for me. My only negative comment would be that the pause button should be the same size as the play button and placed directly under the play. But that is very minor unless you have big paws. Overall, I give this unit a big thumbs up. Nice design, great functionality, WiFi compatible and easy to navigate.

Rated 2 out of 5 by puddintame11 I wanted to like it : (
I purchased the Sony Blue Ray Disc player (BDP S5200) in order to view internet content on my television. Entering information to access internet content is cumbersome and time consuming with the remote control. There is a screen mirroring feature that would make eliminate this problem, IF I could access it. The Wi Fi connection process to access screen mirroring asks for a password. I searched and entered any and every number on the box and instructions with no results. I contacted customer service, asking where I might find the password, or if they could provide one. Customer service told me the player was not compatible with any of my devices ( Apple ipad, iPhone, droid phone, and PC) I am disappointed to say the least.

The Blu-ray player can't read all formats as indicated in the specification section from USB external hard drive. With no cursor indicator and poor internet browser software, searching online is impossible.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KenVtown Excellent DVD, Poor Wi-Fi
Bought this to go with our new Sony KDL60W630B TV, picked it over a lower cost Sony because of the Wi-Fi. The upsale pitch was it would be an easy way to update firmware/software when it is available. However, the Wi-Fi is a royal pain, it will not connect. I had hoped the negative reviews I had read about the Wi-Fi problems were a result of people not understanding how to set it up. I was wrong. Trying to get it to work is exceptionally frustrating. The interesting part of this is, the new Sony TV easily connected to our Apple Airport Extreme. Should have listened to the review warnings and bought the less expensive Sony DVD without Wi-Fi. To update this unit I had to connect it to the internet via cable anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LarryH Sony 3D Blu-Ray Disk player
This Blu-Ray player works great, have had it for about 4 weeks now and not a problem with it. Sometimes I don't have a Blu-Ray to watch but I still have other choices such as NetFlicks, Crackle and/or several other choices. The player is small and compact, therefore it does not take up much room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ZaDomSC Good Player but it has some issues
Overall works well but I've been having a issue with the unit turning on. For what ever reason some times the unit won't turn on by remove or button the the player. I have to unplug the unit and plug it back in which seems to reset it. This happens weekly. I need to take it back for a replacement but haven't had time yet.
The unit itself is good, I wish the remote had a keyboard it would make it more functional when surfing the web or typing in movies via netflix. I'm happy with the purchase but wish the unit didn't have the power issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Roy1 Worst Blue Ray Ever!!!!!!
I purchased this unit from "Best Buy" approximately two months ago and after very little use, less than 10 hours, the unit is broken and does not work properly. During playing the unit shuts down like it is over heating. I telephoned "Best Buy" and they basically told me they do not have a dime it it and to contact "Sony" directly. So much for customer service. DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT!
