      Unreliable Blue-ray Player

      I have purchased two of these little demons within the last 2 years. The first one hung up within the first few months of using it. We could not access the disk in the drive and had to have someone dismantle the machine to rescue our disk. We sent it back to Sony, and thy replaced it or gave us a refurbished player. In December 2017 (it is April 2018 now), I bought a second player for another television. I was hopeful that we would not have any issues with this one. Four months after purchase, this one began freezing if I left Netflix paused for too long. This only happened two or three times (in the same week) before it completely shut down on me. I tried the power button, but it would not work. Neither would the remote. I was determined though! I unplugged it and plugged it in several times. Each time, I would get a little closer to Netflix. The first few times, it would make its devilish little clicking sounds I think were actually it cackling at me, then it would display the Sony Blu-ray symbol for a few seconds, reboot again, and finally shut down. I finally got it to boot. It had no apps...zero! All my information had been erased, so I suppose the entire system reset to factory settings. I stared into its black, empty depths from my display, but I was still determined to conquer it! I painstakingly logged in Netflix, inputting my e-mail and password, one-character-at-a-time. I made it to the select user screen, and it froze! I went through the unplug/plug in routine again and got it back up. Surprise! It had once again erased all my information, so I had to enter it once again. By then, I wanted to throw the little evil box out the window of a tall building, but I was only in my house where it would not have done the amount of damage I wanted to inflict upon this evil machine! However, I finally made it to Netflix, and I was even able to start watching a program. Yes!!! Then, within the first few minutes of watching it, it once again froze! I haven't touched it since I unplugged it after the final freeze. Now, I will have to return this one to Sony. BUYER BEWARE!!! DO NOT BUY THIS!

      "DO NOT BUY"

      What i am going to say in this review is all true about this Blu Ray player and don't make the same mistake i did and buy it.I narrowed my search down to three Blu Ray players and this was my #1 choice.Now i did read the reviews on all three and there were several reviews for this player that stated while playing a DVD the movie would stop several times while watching.So today i bought this unit hooked it up and around 6 pm i put in Return Of The Jedi for my wife to watch and within 40 min of her watching the movie this player stopped 27 times she counted them as the unit stopped and each time the picture would go away for about 2-3 seconds with no sound and then resume playing.So i wanted to see this myself and in less then 2 min as i watched it did it 3 more times so at that point i realized those reviews i read about this problem were all true.So I disconnected the unit and drove back to Best Buy and exchanged it for another brand put the movie back in and she finished it without any issues.What disturbs me the most about this issue is it is made by Sony one of the top names in the field and to read about this issue and then for my wife to see it 27 times and then myself another 3 times is the reason why i am writing this negative review to explain to others to stay clear of this Blu Ray.There were 4 units on the shelve when i went in the store to look and 2 of them had open box marked on them so that was a sign they must have been bought and returned for the same issue i was having.I wanted to replace my older Blu Ray in our bedroom with a cheaper player that was more current but as it turned out it was a nightmare.Hope this helps those that are thinking about this one.

      If your trying to make a dumb tv smart with a dvd player let me tell you don't especially if you live in a triple wide trailer with a metal roof. You would think a metal / aluminum roof would be a super conductor antenna but the exact opposite it slows high speed internet to a stand still , like a 5400 spin hdd vs todays SSD hdd in comparison . I was doing this for my mother in law as she bought a old 55" samsung 6 or more years ago and it works great for her but has no 4k or smart apps , so when I let her use my netflix to try and get her do drop cable i also gave her a samsung 8" tab to watch it on . Well like any one the 1rst ? is can i watch it on my tv . Well i had to explain your tv even though back then it was 1200$ does not have anything , no internet to download apps and if you go smart get 4k it s senseless not to . She did not have the money though I even found her a 65" for 799$ 4k smart samsung and she as a singe woman just cant spend the cash on frivolous things as she needs a new metal roof lol the irony kills me because that slows her internet and you cant make or receive cell phone calls in there .There has to me newer material going into 2020 for a triple wide trailer for a roof that doesn't block calls and internet !!!! I got off track so yea i bought this hooked it up to the tv now she has a slow...... smart tv with the super high speed ac internet that should work great but alas nothing is AC except for the laptop i made her buy to stay current and be able to manage her life

      Good player; Don't buy to stream Netflix

      For blu-rays, the player looks and sounds great. But I already had a nice player. I bought this one for Netflix streaming, as I don't have a smart tv. Well, the video will load and play great, but the download speed to the player ranges from 16-26 mbps. For HD video, Netflix wants 20 mbps consistently. I have 300 mbps download speeds from my isp, and my wireless computer is testing at about 295 mbps. I've spent hours on the phone with Netflix, Sony, and my isp. My isp has sent two technicians over to check the lines. All consensus is that the problem is the blu ray player itself. After doing some research, I've learned that when you stream Netflix on a Sony player, it passes through Sony servers, then to Netflix servers, back to Sony servers, then to your machine. During the travel through Sony's servers, much of the speed is lost, and causes an intermittent pixelated picture to the point where it's hard to recognize. The problem isn't the player itself, but how Sony processes Netflix information. Sony hung up on me yesterday when I asked repeatedly why Sony's servers are involved in the process. They have been no help at all.

      Great A/V Quality. Issues with Older Sony DVDs

      Posted
      Movieguru83

      I purchased the BDP-S1700 in April. I had no problems with Blu-ray, DVD or CD playback...that is, until recently. One night last week, I decided to dig out my old "Spider-Man" DVD. It took three attempts and opening and closing the disc tray before I wouldn't see a "No Disc" screen. I'm pretty OCD about my disc library, so needless to say, there were no fingerprints, dust or scratches on it. After the disc finally booted up, things were going just fine until the screen went black following the FBI warning and there was a hesitation loading up the Columbia logo. I didn't get anything on screen until about the point the Col. logo segued into the Marvel one. The player had never hesitated before like this with any disc. As an experiment, I dug out some more older Sony DVDs ("A Few Good Men," "Panic Room," "Adaptation," "Black Hawk Down," "As Good As It Gets" and "Glory."). They all had the same delay issue ol' Spidey did. I have the video set at 24p on the player and I'm using a Dynex HDMI cable on an Insignia 32" 1080p TV. No discs from other distributors have had this issue. Oddly, more recent Sony Blu-rays and DVDs play without a hitch. I have the latest firmware update and I've tinkered with every setting known to man, but there's still a delay playing the beginning of older Sony DVDs. If anyone knows of a firmware update or has a solution outside of upgrading these discs to Blu-ray or 4K, please pass it on!

      I love this DVD Blu-ray player

      I was debating on which one to buy from Best Buy and picked the Sony DVD Blu-Ray player. I am so glad I did. the other models I bought before are so slow loading and opening of door. This one plays all my DVD, Blu-ray, and CD music which I have lots of. This is a very small DVD Blu-ray player but it is awesome. It tucks neatly under my 43 in insigna TV I got from Best Buy. these two items together make one awesome picture. And you can control the picture quality to suit your needs very easily from the remote. I like Samsung but sorry this one wins. I have never heard of insignia but I went to BestBuy and took this one home for less than $200 plugged it into my Sony DVD player from Best Buy and I was amazed. And I have Wi-Fi I can plug it in to the DVD player directly and I now get Netflix which is very popular for me. The DVD player does not do over-the-air wifi-only direct plug-in to DVD player. Which made it easy and perfect for me so simple to use and the DVD player opens quickly closes quickly and plays the Blu-ray quickly compared to the Samsung I had. So now I just push the button the door opens i can put a CD music in and it plays quick. I got a discount when I bought the 43 inch TV and DVD I only paid 250 for both I am very happy with this combo. Highly recommended. Super easy setup. I bought a$19 flat panel window antenna and I get 20 channels. Awesome love it.

      I bought this Blu-Ray player for my parents. All of my home theater components are Sony. My parents have a Panasonic TV. But I still went with the Sony Blu-Ray player. Even though the TV is not a Sony, the two units work well together. Turning on the Blu-Ray player causes the TV to automatically switch to the Blu-Ray player input, which is great. I wasn't sure that would happen with a Panasonic. The only issue is that you must be careful when setting up. There is a very specific order to be followed when connecting and turning on for the first time. Initially, my setup was unsuccessful - there was a picture but no sound. Make sure the device initializes when you first turn it on. If it doesn't, then turn it off and go through the steps again, making sure to follow the proper sequence.

      Very Disappointed

      Posted
      Clarity

      Purchased this as an upgrade from an older Samsung blue-ray player...I wish I had stuck with Samsung! To be honest...this is the worst experience with a piece of technology I have ever had. The blue-ray player freezes almost every night, and when iit does, it kicks me out of all of the apps and I have to log in all over again. It's gotten so bad that I have had to go online with several accounts and "deactivate" the device because it was on there seven or eight times! There are also times when it will work fine, but the next day I turn it on, it will be logged out of all the apps again. I have to re-connect it to my wireless almost every day. I have a smart TV in another room that never has any issue - I can stream all day in any app without complaint. Previous blue-ray player had no problems streaming or staying connected either. I am really disappointed with this purchase and do not recommend this product. It is incredibly frustrating!
