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

Rated 3 out of 5 by Josephine so-so performance
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 2 out of 5 by esandullo Device is ok.
Overall this device is OK. If I had the opportunity though I would return it for something else. When it works (which is only about 75% of the time) it does a good job, but it drops my WiFi network often and the device freezes at least 3-5 times a week. When that occurs I have to get up and unplug the device for a period of time in order for it to be usable again. When it does freeze, there are times where I have to re-enter all of my network data to get the WiFi to work again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DanS1 Ok, But has a Few Issues
I have two issues with this product, one of which is common to all players as far as I know and the other specific to this item.
1. If one practices good cyber security on their home networks, they should employ a lengthy complex WPA2 passphrase. Entering that passphrase on this product can be a pain. There should be a mechanism to load the network name and passphrase on a USB device for entry into the player.
2. There are no controls on the player, only on the remote. So you can't even turn it on without using the remote. And the remote doesn't always work to pause or stop some videos from Amazon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by joebill Devise has poor HDMI port
The HDMI port on the Blu-ray player does not allow for a secure connection of the HDMI cable to the devise. The connection is not tight, and therefore, the signal is lost to the television set. The connection can be manipulated to get the signal to the TV, but the fix is not permanent.

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 eagerzoo slow & not as user friendly
This 2014 unit is not as user friendly & accessible as the older 'google TV' box... we really wish we could revive the older box or, at least, fix/repair/replace the remote for the older box which is all than busted on the older box...
