Rated 5 out of 5 by FranVilla 2nd option ended up being the best!
This Sony 3D Blu Ray Player was my second option only because I wanted my units to match my tv brands which are Vizio but after reading the reviews I went for this unit and I don't regret it one bit! I would definitely recommend for others to buy this.
Rated 2 out of 5 by W8WCA Great Idea - But poor quality and "buggy" firmware
I have constant problems:
1) When a USB HD is connected, about every 3rd time I go to watch a movie from it, I have to do a force power off first - as it says; file is not playable, until I "re-boot" (Hold power button down for apx 20 seconds.
2) Many times it will not see a DVD - until I "re boot"
3) Netflix is VERY hard to fast forward
It May just be poor firmware - it has been updated a few times since I purchased it, but still very buggy.

most adaptive and compatible device of my home entertainment system. works perfectly with my WiFi system. very pleased with my purchase
Rated 5 out of 5 by farid13 excallent Blur ray player with great brand name and great price.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mobman Does all that we wanted it to do
Has been working well. Syncs with our Sony HD TV and streams netflix wirelessly. We really like the fact that our TV remote operates the Blue ray player and the BleRay player runs many TV functions. So far so good.
Rated 4 out of 5 by GeoManReviews Worked Great for Blu-Ray & WiFi
This worked great with my 1090P LCD. Got the same WiFi bars as I get on other devices and laptops. It also has a web browser, but the remote doesn't have a keyboard layout. Those who texts on a regular cell phone would understand this issue. When plug into a Cat 5 cable, it has a quicker response time. It comes with a standard cable, but I would recommend a HDMI cable - better quality picture and sound.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gamechik24 Amazing 3D & love the WIFI!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigbas The product is very good and efficient.
Rated 5 out of 5 by apostleam GREAT
LOVE IT BUT NOT EASY TO SET UP INTERNET CONTENT BUT GREAT AFTER SET UP
Rated 5 out of 5 by CBlake1 So far this player works great. We've only played regular DVDs and blu ray, no 3D as of yet. Great picture, operates normally.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Grumpy75 Disappointment
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.
Rated 5 out of 5 Very nice Player
This is a nice player. It updated the minute I hooked it to the internet. It comes with lots of free subscriptions, and a bunch of pay-to-use subscriptions.
Rated 4 out of 5 by littlerup great bluray dvd player/extras
very satisfied with the player and wi-fi options
Rated 5 out of 5 by tubabob Blu ray player - excellent, and reasonable price
Beautiful styling - so slim it disappears in my stack of components, Incomparable picture, fast streaming, simple operation. Installation was a snap.
Rated 5 out of 5 by beamergirl Great Blu Ray Player

Rated 5 out of 5 by Argoten2 Sony BDP-S580 3D Blu-ray Disc Player
Just a real easy component to use and hook up... just happy with it so far!
Rated 5 out of 5 by bball Great product
OS is very similar to the ps3, this is a big plus as it keeps the learning curve flat. My wife can operate very easily. Also the android phone app is just what I was looking for.
Had to trick remote to allow surround receiver volume control but after that works great. Youtube full screen is awesome, Hulu+ works perfect. Coming over from PS3 for this everything is great.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Jomigo Why advertise it can do Netflix? It can't
Ok so basically it is a good player except for Netflix. Netflix is choppy, like it is skipping frames. My Nintendo Wii does does Netflix perfect, why can't this player. It's not my wifi nor Internet either. I can immediately switch to the Wii and its fine. I can immediately switch to Vudu or Amazon on this player and they are outstanding! Read the Amazon reviews and others on the net....this Netflix problem is real, and Sony is doing nothing to fix it. I'm lucky I discovered all this before my Best Buy return policy expired, it's going back. I'm going to try thE LG instead.....it's a real shame too, I've got a Sony HDTV and really like that the whole link thing where they can control each other and settings are instant on, but we watch Netflix alot and this was one primary reason for getting this player....Sony, you know where I'm at if you want to send a free unit when/if you fix this problem....if it works flawlessly, I'll fix this review. If you are not interested in Netflix, this is a good unit, loads very quickly and is quiet.
Rated 5 out of 5 great product
I have had this blue ray player for 3 months now and I love it!! The wireless feature is great for streaming netflix, qriocity, and pandora. I have no complaints!! I am definitely happy I went with this one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoneStarM Works great if on good network
I checked out the negative reviews first, but concluded that problems appeared result of setup and/or the user's network. Decided to buy the Sony BDP-BX58 (BDP-S580) anyway.
The setup consisted of plugging it in, connecting HDMI cable, turning on power and following the onscreen menu -- about 5 minutes total. I entered the passphrase for my wireless network and It instantly accessed the internet and offered a firmware upgrade.
While disc loading is slightly slower than the DVD player it replaced, it is faster than other BR players I have seen.
Of course BR is excellent resolution, but this player renders my existing DVD's at a much higher resolution than the old equipment. (This may be partly due to HDMI connection on the Sony which I didn't have on old player. 1080i vs 480i has to help!)
I didn't give too much consideration to the wireless till I tried it out....Works great! In addition to all the internet stuff like Netflics, Hula, etc., I can now watch video and audio from my computer including iPhoto and iTunes libraries.
Bottom line: The negative reviews may indicate network setting and software problems and/or poor wireless signal to the set. Problems user are having could possibly be corrected by either relocating their wireless router, relocating the player or as a last resort using a network cable to connect to router. (or getting a WIFi extender to increase the router's range.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sinsonte Easy to install
Non techie senior citizen however the installation was relatively simple, on my set it was only one HDMI cable hook up to an existing Sony surround sound system. Easy TV on screen instructions to hook up to your router, mine has an WPS button that when pressed emits a hook up signal with the wi-fi facilitating connection. Strong Steady stream, but you do have a short wait for a channel connection .CONS few freebies be prepared to pay for viewing can dowload DVD's movies but not more current blue ray recordings.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hatchman Solid BDP
A not too deep solid unit that delivers what I needed to stream into the bedroom. Mpbs meter nice and onscreen menus easy to use simular to my PS3. USB conectivity in back but not a problem for testing / playing / imaging my Walkman and thumb drives. Highly recommend. Android app (and other) compatable. Not bad for a medium priced BDP dvd upscaler.
Rated 5 out of 5 by migunner First flat panel and first bluray
This is the first hidef and my first blu ray player, I am happy with all the channels added to this including the web, I have not tried a keyboard in the usb slot yet but that is coming, fast wireless and strong signal with no stutter in hidef movie settings, all around good solid device, have it hooked up to plasma 1080p and shows great blu ray movies. streams excellent,
Rated 5 out of 5 by arnymateo Love It!!
Ignore all the reviews with 1 and 2 stars. I don't understand what they are doing wrong. I was able to easily connect the player to the internet and get Netflix setup. Both work fabulously. Oh.. and you can add titles and search in Netflix.
The up-scaling of the DVDs works great looks as good as a Blu-ray.
I also have a Sony TV and love the Bravia sync. If you have a Sony TV then get a Sony Blu-ray player because the Bravia sync is great. When you turn on the Bu-ray player it automatic changes your TV input to the Blu-ray player. You can also set it up to have the Blu-ray player turn off with the TV. Another feature I like is that you can control the TV volume with the Blu-ray player remote. You also can control the Blu-ray player with the TV remote.
Overall this is a great product and would recommend this to anyone especially if you own a Sony TV.
Rated 4 out of 5 by dinmt nice product, need some better interface
This is a rather amazing unit especially for the price. Great picture and sound. We have very poor internet speed where we live and we can actually what an entire Netflix movie without buffering and with great sound and picture.
It is super frustrating to try to try to watch a program in Hulu thru this unit. My list of shows to watch appears very jumbled, w/o air dates and there are pages of them. It is just too much to sort through.
The "keypad" for entering names to search for channels in Pandora or movies in Netflix is PAINFUL. I read that there is an Android application to control unit from your tablet or phone. Please let me know what that app is. I have a Samsung Nexus phone and Galaxy 10.1 tablet.
Nice producct for watching movies.......web interface still needs smoothing out.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Explorer A Sony at it's best!
product is sound, works great, especially with a secure wireless system. Worked so easy I convinced my room mate to switch from his Samsung which required an additional item to go wireless (and then required the network to be un-secure to work.) Only recommendation I have is to make it one key for all the features. Pandora, Netflix, Slacker, and SEI all had separate screens and keys.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MrJerome Works great!
Everything is great, they should have the Internet TV and remote with this unit. Everything works properly, it has very fast load response especially if it was loaded already.
