Built-in Wi-Fi. Quick disc loading speed. Impressive Web video streaming offerings

Comparatively expensive. No analog surround audio outputs

With all the hype surrounding 3D movies like Avatar, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Alice in Wonderland, everyone wants to get in on this emerging technology. Luckily, several of the top electronic brands have recently released 3D Blu-ray disc...

We especially appreciate how this Blu-ray disc player feels like a computer. With two USB ports, data can be transferred easily from your home computer, camera and even MP3 players to the built-in memory section. The only thing the Sony BDP-S770 is...

The entertainment industry is seeing a 3D revolution. 3D products are coming to the market at warp speed and plunging prices. Of all the manufacturers, Sony is the only one involved in every aspect of the product chain, from 3D movies to HDTVs and 3D...

Should have checked..

 

I know this seems like a bad review, but I bought this player so I could play BR disks and Japanese DVD's(wife is Japanese), only to find out that there is no region free hack for this player. In todays world there is no reason for every player not to...

Seems on par with most other BR players

Wont play DIVX or japanese DVD's(see summary for my reasons)

Good Player

 

Good product. Plays crisp pictures. Varied internet options (we use Netflix). Two [minor] complaints ... the ON/OFF button is on the left above the disk load tray and the OPEN/CLOSE button for the tray is on the right. Ergonomically speaking, I would...

Good picture quality and loading time. Varied internet options

Ergonomics. Remote control

Tried the rest, SONY was the best.

 

Born out of frustration in getting my surround sound system to perform up to my standards this was the last player I tried (only because the store was out of 570's). It blew me away with sound quality. I had wrongly assumed that all players were...

Worked flawlessly for me. Video quality was beautiful with no skips or hiccups. Mostly I bought it for sound quality. I tried 2 samsung players, one LG 570, and also compared it to the PS3.. this was the best. Flawless sound of superior quality

So far I haven't found anything I don't like

Superb premium Bluray/DVD player

 

I've had none of the firmware upgrade disasters reported by some other s770 users here. My machine was bought In Australia and the problem may be specific to the units sold in North America. This top of-the range isn't Sony's best value Bluray Player...

Excellent Bluray, DVD and CD audio performance; streams most files types reliably from computer when using good DLNA server software like TVMOBILI; backlit remote; virtually noiseless disc transport; more solid build than its cheaper Sony cousins

Slightly limited functionality with streaming videos (eg. skipping back/forth is disabled); User Manual offers no setup advice on computer networking and DLNA streaming; MKV file support flakey but solved by M2TS remuxing

Stopped working for me too - still needs bugs fixed

 

Don'y buy one until they fix the bugs and beware of incompetent service center staff. I'll never buy another Sony product. SN of product was 1000506 so probably an early untested version.

Fast loading

Would play fine for 30-45 minutes then just stop playing. Awful trouble with customer service, machine never worked and they refused to ship a new one and tried twice (unsuccessfully) to repair leaving me without a DVD for 2 months

Stoped working after a week

 

Maybe it needs a update. Not going to keep it.

Fast loading

Stoped loading blu-ray movies after a week

Consumer review by:

good player but Update ruined it for me

 

I recommend the player without downloading the update it offers. If you so decide to download the update and it doesn't work afterwards, good luck dealing with sony. I just spent 2 hours with 3 different people trying to get a replacement on my HDMI...

It comes with lots of apps to access sites such as Netflix and Pandora as well as many others. The setup was very easy. Image great and disc load time quick

Tthe Firmware Update. As soon as it was complete I turned the power back on and my tv said "No Signal." I changed inputs on tv and it worked. I changed cables and it worked. Before update everything worked - after I couldn't use 1 input with player
