Sony is one of the big brands in the world home entertainment. The BDV-E2100 home cinema system has plenty of connectivity options, but can it live up to Sony's reputation when it comes to sound quality? Find out in our full review.

Great product.

 

Great system. Exactly what I thought it would be, the crack doesn't bother me because I bought it refurbished and you can't tell unless you get close to it.

Very loud. Crisp sound. Can stream from your home network via Plex on your PC (and the streaming quality is excellent, full 1080p) plus a plethora of other online services. Nflix, Amzn, Ytube, etc... Looks great on a black glass entertainment center.

Front face plate is cracked on the upper left hand corner.

I got a sad reburished unit...

 

My refurbished unit came cracked on one of the corners. I could definitely tell is was not refurbished by Sony. Somebody just wrapped up the speaker cables and threw them in the box.

The system is great. I wish I had ordered wireless speakers.

The input/output readout on front is hard to see.

Worked great for 5 months...

 

I really like the system, but I prefer my technology to work for more than 5 months from date of purchase. The optical input was the number one feature I purchased this for - I have a PS3 and an Xbox 360 to do Netflix and blurays, and an HTPC to do...

Great surround sound, plays blurays and Netflix.

Worked for 5 months, now won't play any audio through the optical connection. Subwoofer was a little weak, but that was to be expected. Is now getting hung up on certain functions - Netflix takes 5 minutes to load, there's visible stuttering when...

SONY BDV-E2100

 

Not thrilled with Sony's unilateral control of my menus. Would like to change order of apps but can't. Can't delete Sony's promotional apps either (when did Spiderman 2 come out???). WiFi is only 2.4GHz, but was easy to setup, and keeps connected at...

Excellent price for refurbished unit ; No dings, scratches or other signs of previous use ; Rock solid performance ; Well designed remote ; Expected number and types of output choices ; Surround speaker system has excellent sound (I'm no audiophile...

Little slow to startup, even for a BD player ; Can't change order of menu lineups ; Can't delete any menu items ; Browser is a bear to use, even with a connected keyboard/mouse. Doesn't display most websites properly
