Sony® smart 3D Blu-ray Disc™ player with Wi-Fi® - BDP-S580
No Problems Here...
I don't know what the one and two star reviewers are doing wrong. I have had NONE of the problems they have mentioned. My machine works perfectly!!! It says you should have a "N" WiFi connection which I have and it works great. Some have said WiFi sucks...not mine. It's as fast as my computer and the router is on the second floor while the Sony is in the basement under the TV. I get 3 bars of signal and 8Mbts of stream which is what my cable provider (WOW) provides. Blue-Ray is great, 3D is great and Netflix and Amazon streams are flawless. Get a fast "N" WiFi conntction and you won't have any problems. The price is right and I think it has all the features most people need or want. Buy it, it's a good machine. THE END

I eyed this BDP for a while, finally pulled the trigger and am very pleased. The key features that I choose Sony on was the mobile control and app selection. The loading speed is good and the apps out of the box are ideal. I tend to host many get togethers and access to personalized streaming media just made my events even better. Also the iPhone remote control adds to ease of leveraging the apps and overall experience in using this BDP. I highly recommend and the ability to stream music between Sony devices just put a few more Sony products in my future.
If I could ask for more features, it would be to build out the Facebook / web navigation and also expanding the capabilities of iPhone app. I would like to see an interface screen to see what the tv is showing. It would make remote nav a bit easier if I am out of the room.

My Sony Blu Ray
I have only recently received my blu ray player as a gift, so I have not had much occasion to use it. But the times that I have I can honestly say have been great. It has an excellent picture and I know it will work a lot better once I have it properly connected to my wireless router. I am not electronically adept, so when it comes to new devices like this it takes me a while to get it working, but Sony support ran me through it very easilty. I am a happy camper.

This player was purchased to access online films from Netflix but stops and will not finish a movie. I have a new router and a router enhancer. My screen displays 5 bars and 11.5 Mbps. i can view the movies perfectly on my laptop sitting next to my tv. I guess this is why this player is now unavailable.
