Rated 4 out of 5 by Mowinter Good device with one disapointment
Overall great device, but would be nice to be able to add more apps. A disappointment is will not show all videos on my youtube playlist. If I have 70 in my playlist it only displays 7 not to pleased with this at all. Hopefully, there will be a fix for this or a way around it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mrbasicshark Close but falls short
I love the size of the unit, love the features, love the virtual remote, it has all the streaming apps, the throw to the screen feature is neat, plays blu ray fine. However, it has no component output - only hdmi and composite .. not sure why a blu ray player would have composite anyway as this is a non-hd output.... the problem I ran into is my tv only had one hdmi and I upgraded my dish network box that took this output.....I do not want to connect with the composite - if doing that I might as well went with a standard dvd player.....If it had the component output though - I would have used that and would not be returning, but is does not. In summary nice dvd player, but needs better wifi and needs component instead of composite output. Additional of an optical output would be nice to - but not a deal breaker.... the deal break from me was the video outputs...I may go with the next model up the 590s, I think it has the outputs. The 590s is 3D though which so far is a useless feature to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MyFirstDVD Great Product
So far so good! Easy set up... took less than an hour to un-pack, hook it up, and go thru the set-up menu. Connecting to my wireless network was a breeze - first time without any problem... went thru the setup wizard and got connected on the first pass! Then it informed me that there were software updates that need to be applied and it downloaded them and applied without a glitch! Connected to Crackle on the Sony Entertainment Network to test the performance of my network - no problem except that the breaks for advertisements were annoying. Signed up for Netflix and have had no problems whatsoever. This is how I expected a Sony product to be... great quality, performance and reliability.
It is set up and fully operational...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drakah Best Bang for the Buck!
I bought this to replace my broken DVD/VHS player and gave me a reason to upgrade to a Blu-Ray. What I didnt know was that this device automatically configured itself to be on my workgroup of computers where I can access all my video, music and media straight from any computer including my NAS device! THAT was awesome! I wound up buying 3 more S390's for the rest of the house! I have a Sony Bravia TV too and the remote works with it since its the same brand, cool! AWESOME UNIT and wasn't expensive! SO Happy, thank you Sony!

Rated 5 out of 5 by yeyo Fits what I needed and more
I had some doubts before buying the unitt due to comments (don't remember where#, but related to being too slow the equipment when accessed the internet. I thought: well my smartphone does reasonable good, at least for my needs. This bigger box should do at least the same. And took the risk of purchasing it. No regrets. Good decision. Speed is completely reasonable. Well, let me be more specific, if you expect to get any internet load in fractions of seconds, then you could be dissapointed. If it is ok for you to wait about 1-3 secs, then this works for you (I am using basic internet connection). This time is, for example, for searching youtube or for initial connection to internet. During playing itself, there is no interruption at all, as expected. I like all the options to connec to channels, but I was looking for youtube, cd player, dvd and blueray, and netflix.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dalijokk PLEASE FIX THE SOFTWARE!!
I bought this because it include internet tv and bluray at a good price. but right after it starts up it requires an update. after the update, the user interface become super slow!!! almost everything on the user interface lags.
PLEASE FIX THIS SONY!
it is not smooth at all. this kind of software shouldn't come from a highly known company!
perhaps theres too much info for the player hardware to process.

This Sony Blue Ray DVD Player not only plays DVDs and converts them to high definition but also connects to my wireless router. Using wireless internet, I can connect to Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus and many other free and/or discounted subscription sites. This is really nice for someone who does not have a cable or satellite subscription. I was going to purchase a Smart Television but I am able to do the same thing with the Sony Blue Ray Player at a significant savings. Easy set up with my Sony LCD flat screen television.
Bottom Line: I highly recommend the Sony Blue Ray Disc Player BDP-S390.
