BX2 suddenly faills after 11 months


Avoid this device.

Great player while it lasted

All disks loaded to this player are reported as "No Disk". Sony service suggestions are useless. It will not spin a cleaner disk so I cannot figure out if that would fix it. Will buy a replacement rather than mess with it. I expect more than this

Cheap, substandard and lack of support. Don't buy.


Slow startup, slow playback, slow tray open, slow boot up. I purchased from a store about 4 months ago and I had to do an update. I think sony needs to work on their appliances a bit more before they send them to stores for sale. Why should I pay...

Price and the fact that you can buy it from me

Everything. Let's start with the little ones and then I'll move onto big ones ; 1. Slow ; 2. Not current ; 3. Does not play all disks

Good for the Money. Can be Sluggish at times.


This is good stater blu-ray player. If you want wi-fi, netflix, pandora etc. this player is not for you.

Works well for the money. Pretty fast start up but not as fast as my old dvd player

Sluggish on BD-live and more complex menus

Best sony blu-ray player for the price.


I dont know why this player has had such bad reviews. Bang for your buck its great. Don't expect 500-800 dollar features with a $150 player. I have only had this player for a few months and have had no real issues. The lack of an eject button was...

This blu-ray player does have all the onboard decoding for dts-hd Master Audio and dolby hd. Load times are good but not fantastic. Upscaler works well and for the price its great. It is just costco's version of the S-360 specs are the same

The remote is cheap and does not have an eject button. The whole front face flips down which can lead to problems in the future. USB flash drive has to be the right size to work

Only Lasted Two Weeks


Very unreliable, not built to last. Sony will only exchange it for the same model, which I have no faith will work any better than the first based on the other review of this product. Find a more reliable product from a company with better customer...

None. Didn't have it long enough to find any

This player gave me trouble with the first two BD's I played and by the third has quit completely. It will still play regular DVD's, but no longer play BD's after just two weeks

Inexpensive player that did not work well


I called sony customer support. Then tried to help me reset the player by unplugging from the power source and then plugging back in a minute later. The player would not reset and I was told to mail the player back to sony for them to remove my CD,...


crapped out after two weeks. While viewing a picture CD the player froze and displayed sys err. It had acted erratically playing DVD's before, but had not actually become inoperable. There is no way to manually remove the CD, like with a computer

A great accessory for a 1080p TV


Within the last few weeks I bought a new 42 inch HD television, and since it is capable of displaying in 1080p I found myself without the means to make use of that quality. So I opted to purchase an accessory for my TV, the Sony BDP-BX2 Blu-ray...

all around good

requires network connection and USB memory
