Terrible range
 
I've had this adapter plugged into my KDL-EX711 for a year and a half. Worked great out of the box for about 3 months. Gradually over time, the signal from my router would get weaker. Replaced the router, and made no difference. Replaced router again 6 months later hoping this would help, but no difference. New router has incredible range.. I can walk 100ft down the street and still connect with my tablet. No luck with the tv. This adapter is a waste of time and money. I've noticed the other rev...

Great picture, but slow as molasses to start up
 
Nice unit. Great image quality. Good price. But this thing is so slow to start up that it's VERY frustrating! So I keep my JVC DVD player hooked up for non Blu Ray DVDs. Another reviewer said that there is no resume feature, but actualy there is. It's obscure, but I discovered that if you press "pause" before turning off the power and then press "play" after he unit is turned on and while it says "Loading" on the TV screen it will resume where last left off...

Sony Time-Killer 3000
 
I run LG's Super Blu and Sony's S300 next to each other. The Sony is by far the most irritating piece of equipment I've ever owned.Everything is painfully slow. Walk up to it and press the open button, and you wait about 70 seconds (no exaggeration) for it to open.Loading Blu-Ray's typically takes anywhere 5 to 15 minutes. Sometimes it will have an error where it justs loads forever (eventually you figure it out). I usually open it up and put a disk in, come back in 5 min...

Very Good Blu-ray Player For Money
 
First thing I did before watching any dvd, I went to esupport sony and downloaded the latest firmware (a software patch...blu-ray players run Java) update for the unit. The firmware is an iso image that you burn to cd or dvd. Firmware upgrades can add additional features and improve performance of the player. Pop your new firmware cd/dvd into the player and it self-installs in about 20-30 mins. Anyway, I got the Blu-ray version of the 'BBC: The Planet Earth' series and the picture and sound were...

HD comes Home
 
Recent purchase of the SONY BDP-S300 ( entry level ) blu-ray disc player is summed up in one word WOW! With prices coming down, this unit is well worth it. Loading time for blu-ray disc is not that bad, consider the vast amount of info these discs are loaded with. My standard dvd discs load fast. The upconversion feature has my wife accepting the purchase. Our collection has the two of us feeling like it's all new again. Disney dvds are very brilliant in veiwing, with Rattatoullie being our firs...

Bluray Blues?
 
I have owned the S300 for a couple of weeks now. The picture is fabulous. Two of the problems I have with the unit are that it does not decode the latest Dolby and DTS sound that was developed for HD, and it is horribly slow in booting up. When you put in the Bluray disc you want to watch, go out make some popcorn and a little hot chocolate, do the dishes and maybe a little laundry and by the time you are done, the movie should be ready to watch after the ridiculous boot up time that you have to...

It's not obsolete, just update the firmware!
 
Not exactly a product review as you already have dozens of them. If you are undecided because of some of the negative things said, let me show you the light. It's blu!I bought this player with the 2.0 firmware and it was great. Yes, it did take a very long time to load Pirates of the Caribbean - almost 3 full minutes. That is due to the disc heavily using Java (BD-J) for interactivity. I flash update to new firmware in about 10 minutes. See Sony's web site for the firmware and carefu...

Finally !!!
 
Sony has finally given me what I wanted. A Bluray player at an affordable price that can ALSO play CDs and regular DVDs with upconversion. Didn't want the extra component as we know space is limited when you have a big screen. Set up is easy. The look of the player is clean and subtle and the size of a typical 5-disc carousel player. Hmm, wonder what's next? Function speed at startup and loading is tolerable and you forget about that when the movie starts anyway. Patience people!! Picture is jaw...

Great Experience
 
I have read the reviews and cannot agree with them. Perhaps the newest firmware version updated a lot of items people complained about. I can watch Netflix without having to Queue. I can search for items as needed and add them to my Queue if I like. I have had a great experience with my player thus far. I am very pleased.

Doesn't quite live up to the Sony reputation, but you get what you pay for.
 
I recently upgraded my living room to a modest hi-def system to prepare for a larger remodelling of my theater room. To weigh out the results, I purchased a 46" Polaroid HD LCD and a Toshiba HD-A20 1080p HD DVD Player player and the Sony BDP-S300 1080p Blu-ray Disc Player. I wanted to see the results of both Blu-Ray and HD DVD before investing in more expensive units.I must say that the image and sound quality of the Blu-Ray player is quite impressive, but as noted in other reviews...
