I read lots of reviews on lots of players before I purchased my first blu-ray player. The reasons I chose this unit are: 1) Price, 2) Brand, and 3) Options. The reviews I read were either at one end of the scale or the other. I am very please with the unit I purchased. I have not streamed any content on it at this point because we have Netflix on our Wii. The menu can take some getting used to if you haven't used other Sony products, but it is relatively easy to learn. Setup was easy too. I had my player up and running in only about 10 minutes if not less. People have complained that it is not wireless, not an issue for me, my router is in the same cabinet. If you NEED wireless I would not recommend this unit, if you can do without the wireless BUY IT NOW!!! I have not had any issues playing any movies on my unit, load times are fast no more than 10-20 seconds if I had to guess (not enough time to bother getting off the couch#. PROS: Affordable, Compact, Easy Setup #Plug and Play, easy as that#, Multiple Outputs #I have an older surround sound receiver so having the Red/White/Yellow RCA outputs was nice, although I only used the RED & WHITE for sound output and the HDMI for video out, and sound to the TV when surround is not needed#. CONS: Not Wireless #Like I said, not a big deal to me#,You MUST Register with the Sony website BEFORE the option to stream content becomes available #Sony website was SLOW!!!! My computer timed out 4-5 time atleast before I was able to get on that site, but all other webpages loaded fast on my computer.) ALL-IN-ALL A GREAT PURCHASE!!!
