Sony BDP-S3100


Sony's budget Blu-ray offers excellent value for money

Good feature list for the money, Slick and easy to use, Sony Entertainment Network

Lags behind Samsung on smart content, No 3D or DivX support, Limited DLNA format support

It works


With the exception of "super wi-fi" this blu-ray player offers everything that it promises. Works perfectly. There is a delay in the response time of the remote when opening/closing an app or powering On/Off. This is a minor issue.

It works ; Reads .mkv files

Pleasantly surprised


At the price I would not expect 3D, but I bought this as a secondary system for the spare room and found I like the Sony apps better than the apps on my unit in the main room (which has 3D), otherwise it could replace the "better" system I have. All...

Easy connection to wifi, Nice internet apps

does not have 3D

Refurbished Sony BDPS3100 Blu-Ray


I have bought a couple of cheap Android streaming devices with Wi-FI and they both worked well as far as the Wi-Fi goes. The Sony Wi-Fi seems very weak. The signal strength is so low that it will only work intermittently.

I bought the Blu-Ray device mostly for streaming Internet content. I have only tried the disk player one time to make sure that it worked. I used a DVD disk to test it and it works fine. The Internet streaming works very well if I use the wired...

I can only get the WI-FI to work intermittently at a distance of about 30ft from the router. I had to use a powerline wired interface device to use the Internet streaming. It is working fine with a set of Actiontec 200 Powerline Network Adapter Kit. I...

Better than anticipated


Bought this as a secondary device for a bedroom, but I like the internet apps on this better than the device (different brand) I use in the living area, I need 3D for that room, so if I need to update there I will look at Sony as a possibility then.

Seems to have built in auto energy saving settings, a nice plus for me. Turns out that I like the Sony brand internet hub for this device

none that I have discovered yet

Excellent value for the money


bought this for my daughter for her apartment. She wanted to be able to get Netflix and no close internet wire so the built in wifi works great. This bluRay filled the gap. Blu Ray movies display great on the TV. A bit slow to set up but other than...
