Don't buy Sony, used to be quality but no least for Bluray...

Great while it lasts

After two years of minimal use, the "Welcome" came on and froze there. dIsconnected power and reconnected over a period of time, this player has been dead ever since. Absolutely no power. Contacted Sony and they wanted $111.00 plus tax. Trash

Less than 2 years into this BD player (BDP-BX1) it started to freeze and skip during playback. The discs I played were in perfect condition, so I knew it was a software issue. I contacted Sony and they sent me a firmware update disc (iMac owners cannot...

Great quality picture

Slow loading time, BD freezes during playback

Sony BDP-BX1 do not buy


A Sony product should last more than a year. I already paid $225 new. I would not recommend this product. I paid for top end and that is not what I ended up with. I guess I go back to Samsung.

Good picture. Easy setup

I purchased 1 year & 1 month ago. Now that the warranty is up it will not play all blue rays. Sony says for $122 they will send me a refurbished

Skips when playing regular DVDs


The unit tends to play the dvd perfectly until the move is almost over, then it skips or freezes before it is over and you can't view the end. i tried the same dvd in a different Sony in the bedroon and it plays without any problems. Sony Technical...

Plays Blu-Ray without problems

Skips playing regular DVDs ; Slow, very slow to start playing anything ; Will not play MPEGs ; Sony tech- plan to spend about an hour to get any satisfaction on the phone

Superb blu-ray player.


I originally bought a BDP-BX1 at Sam's and loved it, but returned it because it didn't stream Netflix. I bought a Samsung BD-P1590 that streamed Netflix. I had to return it because it developed an unfixable software glitch. I bought the Sony BDP-BX2 at...

Very responsive. Intuitive. You don't have to point the remote directly at the set. Very good picture

It doesn't stream Netflix

Excellent 1st time Blu-ray player


Very few products bring as much pleasure and ease of use as does this Sony Blu-ray player. Only a multiplayer disk would be better then this little jewel.

Stylish looks and ease of use are in addition to excellent High Definition picture and surround sound production. Internet connection was rapid and easy

Does not have all audio codecs but most modern receivers will deal with this issue transparently

Outstanding For the Price Thru Clubmac


Bottom Line Awesome Price Excellent Features And It's A Sony

Easy Setup Firmware update 2.0 thru the internet. Quality is Above Average Dont Spend 300 or More this player does all that. sound is great thru my onkyo 7.1 reciever. I bought this player 2 weeks ago for 200 dollars new

There's nothing to dislike about this player

Great First Blu-Ray Player


$239 at Costco is a decent price, it will only go lower from here but I didn't want to wait. You really can't go wrong.

Easy to set up, update, and play movies ; Standard DVD up-convert looks great, blu-ray looks even better ; Some have complained about the small USB port on the back. I have plugged the two thumb drives I have into the port with no troubles at all

None so far, and I'm pretty critical of the things I buy

Great value for a first Blu-ray player


This is the warehouse club version of the Sony BD-350. I first played Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (Blu-ray) and the picture is stunning. I then played an old Clint Eastwood movie "Eiger Sanction" which had some troublesome moire effects in one...

Easy set-up, HDMI cable included. Beautiful playback of Blu-ray movies. Excellent upconversion of most DVDs

Trouble getting correct picture ration on some older widescreen DVDs not enhanced for 16:9

A Sony BDP-350 with HDMI cable included.


There is "no added value" to purchasing a Blu-Ray player for more than this unit providing - video is your focus and you own an HDMI ready TV. The Sony BDP-BX1 has most of the features people require and includes the HDMI cable which most retailers...

Best value in a Tier-1 Blu-ray player

Lack of audiophile formats such as SACD

Product Specifications

BD-Live brings you the next generation of interactivity, allowing you to download and stream bonus content such as additional scenes, shorts, trailers, movie-based games, and more. View feature provides "picture-in-picture" capability with select Bluray Disc titles - useful for viewing director or actor commentary while the movie plays. DVD Upscaling via HDMI gets the most out of your existing DVD collection by upscaling standard definition video to near HD quality. Precision Cinema HD upscale uses high bandwidth digital-to-analog conversion and processing to detect image changes at the pixel level, rather than at the level of whole scan lines. Additionally, separate algorithms are used to process the moving and still parts of an image, resulting in sharp backgrounds with moving objects that are free from motion artifacts. Support for the international xvYCC color standard produces images with 1.8x the color space of the traditional RGB color standard, resulting in images with more natural and vivid color reproduction.
