Anonymous, Surrey Film lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very compact. Smart features, such as YouTube, lovefilm connectivity are great. One big advantage over other tv/bluray smart players (I own Philips smart tv) is that you can forward / rewind YouTube videos in Sony app, good for whizzing through ads / unwanted sections.
Bad points:
Disappointed that Netflix app can't be added as a software update. One has to buy the 2012 lineup for that. Confusingly the product brochure didn't mention this ahead of purchase.

Joseph, London Home cinema enthusiast

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Image quality. Up scaling. Design
Bad points:
Interface is sluggish. Should be a lot smoother
Playing files from USB is awkward.
Needs to support NTFS.
Needs to support MP4 files like Apple Devices.
i.e. chapters, subtitles without having to rename the extension to avi and creating folders for every file

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great selection of web apps such as iplayer, youtube and Lovefilm. smart design. built in wifi is very reliable. easy to set up. good all-round player.
Bad points:
worry about Sony reliability - despite inventing the format, this is a replacement for the equivalent 2010 model which developed a terminal fault.

armando, Lake Genava Home cinema enthusiast

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Overall excellent DVD BLURAY Player. A matter of fact I have one regular DVD player, one DVD BLURAY Player without WI-FI hookup, one 3D DVD BLURAY Player with WI-FI hookup. All of them I believe are same make and models, but different generations and my family loves all of them great product.
Bad points:
The only bad thing I could say about this machine is Netflix & Hulu app installed on the devices. Not very easy to use on these devices. Thumbnails too small, doesn't save your place in a show. So if you lose your place you have to FF and watch ads all over again. Also searching for shows especially similar shows. You type in search find shows your looking for click on one and add. Then it kicks you back out and you have to type in same search again. I also have a 360, Roku, and other mobile devices that don't have the same issues I just described.
