  • A. No. Connecting it to the internet (which, incidentally, can only be done via a wired network) is optional. It works just fine without an internet connection.

I got this unit after returning a defective Phillips DVD player. This one, even though it is refurbished, worked great. It loads faster than the Phillips and doesn't freeze up or stop playing. I knew it was a wired model, but so was the Phillips, so I had the ethernet cable already ran. I have purchased a Sony internet box for my mother-in-law last Christmas, and this has the same interface, and same channel option. This player auto connects to the internet whenever you select a streaming option, which makes using it much easier. The Sony internet box required manual connecting by going to Network > Connection > Verify connection every single time you wanted to use Netflix or Hulu Plus, etc. This unit was the same price as the Internet Box from a year ago, and also comes with a Blu-ray player, and no manual internet verification, basically for free.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I purchased this DVD player so I could play netflix on my old tube tv. PROS: *Netflix *Pandora *Works on older tvs (has vgs? connectors, the red, yellow and white plug ins) *Wired ethernet connection *A ton of apps come on this player CONS: *Likes to buffer sometimes *It is a refurb, so the player is already registered to the old user. I wanted to use my Pandora and it requires a registration code from the device to sign up on Sony Essentials to get it to work. You have to call SONY to get the rep to reset the code so you can register it under your name *Slow to turn on/power off It is a good player to get if you don't want to shell out the money for the latest tv or device to watch Netflix, etc instead of watching on your computer all the time.

Great system for watching videos (HuluPlus, Youtube, and Netflix) as well as DVD and Blu Ray. Easy to hook up and simple to browse so didn't have to teach my parents how to use a computer.

This box is a great deal. It plays BluRay very clear. We stream Amazon Prime on the box also. The refurb price is great and the player we bought seemed brand new.

Before I did anything with this I updated the firmware. Hooking up to my Netflix account was much easier than expected. Played nicely with no freezes and the picture was excellent. Freezes in streaming are usually due to a slow Internet connection or source. Load times are very fast. Much faster than the Panasonic BD that it replaced. I also appreciate the fact that I don't have to use an external memory source for streaming capabilities such as a USB thumb drive or a card. I also appreciate the smaller footprint that this unit offers. It's nearly half the size of the typical BD players out there today.
