I've had this Sony Blu-Ray player for just over a month and I'm trying to decide if I should keep it or send it back. I've played several regular DVDs on it, two Blu-Ray discs, and I've watched about 6 movies on Netflix this month. I'll write up my experiences here and maybe I'll figure out if this player is worth keeping or not. Picture: Beautiful picture quality with Blu-Ray Discs (and upconverting on DVDs too). Internet: Once you get the internet working, you have an adequate player for Net...

This is the Costco version of the Sony BDP-S570 Blu-ray Disc Player. This comes with a free HDMI cable in the box and Costco's 90 day return policy if you buy from them. Otherwise just go for the BDP-570 from Amazon. This is a pretty sleek looking player, even the start button blends into the face, it is pretty light too and you can easily stack it on all your other equipment.The greatest asset of this player is the multiple video streaming options it gives you from different services. Netf...

I bought this to take advantage of its "DLNA Certified" media player. I have a Netgear ReadyNAS media server on my home network with movies and music, and bought this to stream them to my bedroom. I have a Moxi Mate media player that is able to stream them just fine, so I assumed this Sony would do the same.Here is what it WILL NOT DO:From the Netgear ReadyNAS, it will not stream mkv or m4v video files, or mp3 music files, all of which play fine on the Moxi. Each time it says "unplayable file". ...

Not a big review writer but I am sitting here after 10pm writing this because the issues I have described below have happened about 4 times in the last hour.I bought this Player at Sams Club. It seemed like a very good deal at the time.Yes, I've done all of the updates. Finally.However, the Wi-Fi connection keeps dropping as does the NetFlix Streaming. It is definitely the player because I have another laptop in my basement streaming NetFlix to my projector with no issues.By dropping I do not me...

I bought this from Costco and it worked fine during setup, connecting to the internet and registering with Netflix. then it pushed the network update to me and after that I could not pull up the home menu at all. I spent an hour with Sony help on the phone and they couldn't resolve my problem and offered to send me a new device after I send in the one I just bought 3 weeks ago at my own cost. So, I just returned it to Costco and got another one, thinking someone might have been wrong with the...

I purchased the Sony BDP-BX57 at COSTCO. The unit is easy to set up. I hooked it up via the included HDMI cable to my 37" Vizio. I had no problem in connecting wireless to my Netgear router. I haven't tried Netflix but had no problem in connecting with Pandora and Amazon On-Demand, as well as UTube.It enhances my DVDs; very satisfied. I only have 1 Blu-Ray - Invictus with Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. It loaded immediately and played flawlessly.

Opening up the box was a rather simple process. There was not a lot of real thick tape to have to cut through, there was no special way of opening up the box. One thing that I did notice was a note left by Sony letting me know that there will be an update to the player so it can read the new and upcoming 3D. The set up was fairly quick and easy, except when I tried to use the systems WEP. I could not get the Sony to accept my "key". I do have a hub sitting right next to my television, so thi...

My player worked well for a few weeks, although I did have problems with streaming Netflix pauses during evening hours that I think were due to heavy internet traffic. So, one evening the DVD would not eject no matter the remedy. Rather than risk damage by forcing open the drawer, I sent it in for service. I included the Netflix DVD envelope and a note asking if the technician would mail my DVD back for me. A month after the player arrived at the service center, I'd heard nothing and my DVD ...

Lousy customer service
 
I rec'd this product and immediately attempted to set it up with my wireless network. Oops no way. Called Sony customer service do discuss the problems and I was told that I need to prove that I had an active broadband connection before they could proceed. I did that and called them back after attempt after attempt I was advised by Hector at Sony that they would have to send me a disc to update their software and could expect to see it in 7 to 10 days. If the disc doesn't work it going back may ...
