Very Satisfied with Blu-ray Disc Player BDP-S390


Easy setup, Great Compact Size, Works Great, You can't beat this player especially at the price, $50 after rebate

Plastic case attracts dust like a magnet ; Apps are a little slow to load but not a big deal

Works well for me


A good first entry in Blu-Ray playing in a cost effective way. I have no experience with any other BR player so my comment about being sluggish may be the case with all brands and models of players. Be sure to download and PRINT the complete manual....

Refurbished and working well so far ; Nice and compact so it was easy to find a space in the cabinet with TV, and all the rest of the gear ; The refurbished price plus a Newegg further discount code made it cost effective for me to get started with BR...

Seems very slow bringing up the DVD and somewhat sluggish responding compared to my 2 non Blu-Ray DVD players ; Required going through the entire setup process before I got a usable picture on my 42" flat panel TV ; Doesn't come with the manual though...

Sony BDP-S390


I received mine today and it was shipped in the original Sony packaging and seems to be brand new. Perhaps NewEgg has been reading these reviews?

The low price for both a Blu-Ray player and essentially a Roku box all-in-one can't be beat

Slow interface, lots of lag. This is the reason I deducted one star

Looks like these have problems


Frankly, I bought this to TRY the streaming services ... lower $$ than a Roku. I went through those a little learning and it wasn't bad at all. Then I collected a few CD, DVD, and BluRay discs ... didn't play any thru until the 6th, a Diana Krall...

Inexpensive, meets(?) my needs, almost exactly as advertised

Quit during a disc playback, 6th I tried in it. I'm AMAZED it wasn't damaged in transit ... as others have said, plain brown box, no packing, not even held closed but by a loose shipping label. Not that a pair of AA cells is difficult to come by, but...

The First one I order was at my house it 2 days


Basically the BDP-S390 is easy to setup and grab the wireless connection quickly on the second floor. The reason I order a second one because of quality of the product. Plus FAST SHIPPING it a shame I can"t say that about this order. On the first one...

The player does ever thing Perfectly

This second order still hasn't shipped after 3 days

more than I need


Alot of functions that are redundant with my TV (eg Wifi) that I may never need. Tried to play DVDs that had worked on a previous DVD player did not work on this one

Easy Set-Up

Doesn\'t Work With All Dvd

Consumer review by:

Good features for the price...


Can play Blu-Rays and up-convert your old DVDs, plus it gives you access to many online additional apps... Netflix being the one I use the most and all for under $90.

Now is the right time to get a BD Player


I've been holding off on replacing my DVD player on my second TV. My other TV has a PS3 attached. In the past, BD players were too slow and too expensive, so I never bothered to buy a standalone BD player.

Good startup time, lots of online features

YouTube login information needs to be entered every time, remote doesn't work with my non-Sony TV

Shipping Review & Product Review


For how the product was shipped, I give a rating of 1 (poor). In the future, if I order a refurb from Newegg, I'll probably contact them to see how the product will be shipped. If it is questionable, like this product was, I will skip ordering it and...

Shipping Pros ; None. Very Disappointed! Thankfully nothing was wrong with the player and everything was included ; Product ; For the price: great features; boots relatively quickly (even faster with the quick boot). Once got the connection to Sony's...

Shipping cons ; As others have mentioned, the package was received unsecured. Thus my concern was that everything was included, which it was (note that for the refurb, batteries are not included) ; The other issue was with the packaging. The product...
