Comments about Sony 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi:
I bought my Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Wi-Fi in June of 2014, and by the time September had rolled around it no longer played regular DVD's that it played when I first got the machine. I have run through all the troubleshooting and updating that I can, and can't seem to get it to work on anything except blu-ray movies. I also am not impressed with the user interface when using netflix and such. Everything is small, and considering I have 20/15 vision the fact that I have to lean forward to read stuff is kind of telling. I wouldn't recommend buying this machine to anyone I know, and I'm hoping I can still return it...they don't make that very easy though now do they?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I used to have and old Phillips DVD player with hdmi connection, and I though it was ok, however once I upgrade my system to this new sony DVD player the difference is huge.....even with the regular DVD discs you can notice the difference....

SOMETIMES TECHNOLOGY GETS IT RIGHT AND YOU JUST CANT GO WRONG WITH THE SONY S5100. SMOOTH STREAMING, GREAT HIGH DEFINITION QUALITY IN 1080 P, ,3-D CAPABILITY IS AWESOME EVEN THOUGH THE MARKET FOR 3-D IS SUB PAR TO SAY THE LEAST...NO FAULT OF SONY'S. THIS IS A TOP NOTCH DVD PLAYER AT A GOOD PRICE AND WELL WORTH THE COST....BEST VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY, THANKS SONY.

Can't beat it for the price. Turns on fast, loads fast, and built in wi-fi works great. I can't believe that I paid so much for a high end Blu Ray player a few years ago when this Sony beat all my expectations for under $150.

It's worth every penny. It's a great product.
A little disappointed
from North Smithfield, RI
Was excited at the prospect of watching 3D movies and the experience was great. Am a little disappointed in that for some reason i do not get the 5.1 sound that we really enjoy. I can play a disc on my other unit at the 5.1 is there; however, the Sony is very selective, and uses PCM in most cases. Most times the previews on the disc is in 5.1, but when the main movie starts it defers to PCM. Have learned to live with it; however...

Only use a. Few apps. Works really easily. Network setup is simple.
One of my best purchases
from Los Angeles
This Player is like the Swiss Army Knife of BlueRay/Media players. It does it all. It's better than a Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV and all the other wanna be players and the video quality is excellent. I highly recommend this player.
from Los Angeles, CA.
Love the "box", hooked up really easy, very easy to use, outstanding options for viewing, really enjoy it.
