Rated 5 out of 5 by ZekeOne Works Great.
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 4 out of 5 by JDogg282014 Been a wonderful pleasurable enjoyment
They start out of the setting up could have been a bit more easier to do the set up. I work and build eltronics myself n I had a small amount of difficulty. So for others I can only image the difficult amount they could be having on the set up process. N all in all it aa great and wonderful, convent, very optional in choices to use n mess with and really my only complaint about the produced I don't like is it difficultly after connecting the device to another such as a netbook that even though they have already been sync together the bluraydoes not stay in sync with it and I have to go through the process each time I I wanna sync my netbook to it to transfer and watch my movies on my flat screen. Other wise besides that little bit of troubles I love the product as I do with all my Sony equipment I have and will continue too keep on purchasing. Ty Sony

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 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 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LongtimeSony Problem with Internet Access
I am disappointed this time's purchase. I had problem getting internet access with this DVD player. Wi-Fi connection shows ok but internet access shows 'failed'. I have contacted support three times and they are still trying to figure out the problem. One time they gave me the case number and said someone from the second level would call me back but never did. They reviewed the setting of the player and my modem and router and indicated problem most likely came from the player's software inside, which needs an upgrade.

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 1 out of 5 by railman Problems, problems, problems!
The HDMI port does not allow for a secure connection with the HDMI cable. As a result, there is a loss of connectivity, and the cable connection must constantly be manipulated to allow the signal from the blu-ray player to reach the television.
