I have two identical BDP-BX2 machines. One is being used "out of the box" and is an excellent machine. Plays every Blu Ray I have. No problems. On the other one, I downloaded two "firmware" upgrades from the Sony site. After the first "update" it would only play some Blu Ray discs. Now it calls all Blu-Ray discs "Invalid Disc" and plays only DVDs. Bottom line: A really a good machine if you don't update the firmware. If you update the firmware, you could end up turning it into a DVD pla...

Great performance for what it is designed to do...
 
Outstanding quality. This blu-ray player produces a top quality picture. Setup was painless. However, if you like to add all devices to your cable box remote control, I could not get it to recognize this player. I tried all the Sony codes in the manual and then tried the learn process and the cable remote could not operate this player. Not a deal breaker but an annoyance. This player has BD Live which allows for firmware updates over your network but has to be hard wired. It has no wirele...

Sony Blue-Ray
 
I received this player for Christmas and have now had time to watch numerous videos on it. This is my first Blu-Ray so I don't have other to compare it to, only what I have read in other reviews.First I will say this an inexpensive no-frills player. If you want bells and whistles you need to pay more and look elsewhere. On comparing the Blue-Ray format to the progressive scan (upconvert) DVD I find that the picture for most live action films is simply outstanding and an order of magn...

My first blu ray
 
This is my first blu ray player and even though I have nothing to compare it to I'm still impressed. I've heard that most blu ray players are slow, especially with jam packed discs. I've found that this blu ray players is fast in comparison to some other ones I've tried in stores and ones that friends have. I've never had to wait longer then a minute to load a disc (included: starting the player, loading the disc, and seeing the menu). I'd say it's only slightly slower then my Philips DVD player...

Nice unit marred by audio/firmware and customer service issues
 
Sony does make good units (and this one basically is with one major problem), and Blu-Ray is still an evolving standard...BUT:I'm using an older Technics A/V receiver with an outboard Technics Dolby Digital decoder, that accepts coax, fiber, (both 5.1) and RCA (2.0) inputs, with 6 channel output to the receiver. So I don't have an HDMI input/output loop in my receiver, mainly because I had been waiting for HDMI/HDCP to really settle down before retiring a [still-useful] A...

Fantastic player for the money
 
Very satisfied with this purchase. The player has a sleek look and it is very quiet when playing blu-ray discs. Perfect choice for anybody who is interested in a more basic(not so many features) blu-ray player that offers top notch video and audio quality for the price. It worked perfectly right out of the box so I didn't even bother connecting it to internet for updates. Highly recommended!

No Resume. Major disappointment.
 
Shocked and annoyed that this player doesn't resume play from where I left off. Very annoyed.

Good Operations, Set-Up A Problem
 
Used on blue-rays and regular DVDs - excellent picture and sound. Wish there was a way to make less sensitive to fingerprints, scratches, etc., or to get past. Going to try a disc-cleaning and recovery system. Not certain what all the features are. The manual seems written by someone with less than 100% knowledge of good English.

No Network Capability. No Netflix Streaming.
 
While blu-ray discs play just fine and DVDs look even better then on a DVD player, I was really disappointed to find out that the Sony BDP-BX2 does not support Netflix video streaming, Pandora, or any network features available on other Blu-ray disc players. I had to take it right back to the store. I'll have to buy an LG player instead.

Great simple player
 
This is my first blu ray player and it works great. Blu ray discs look great on it (I've been testing it out with season 5 of LOST). The player itself looks really slick. The load times for blu rays are pretty quick too. Something you may not be able to tell from the picture: when a blu ray disc is playing, the faint light at the top center of the front is blue, when a dvd is playing, it's white.Note: as other reviewers have said, this player does not have advanced internet features ...
