Don't buy this Home Theater System

 

My problems began when I selected a Sony Blu-Ray BDV-E570. It turns out there's a difference between the Blu-Ray PLAYER & the Bu-Ray Home THeater System as far as Remotes are concerned.

Looks nice & works fine as long as you don't try to use a Remote other than the one it came with

THe Home Theater Systems by Sony are not compatible with any Remote other than the one it came with

Five Star Blu Ray Player! A MUST have for money!

 

Very easy to set up, automated and self-upgradeable. A lot of other options, BRAVIA is self-explanatory, interacting with my SONY BRAVIA HDTV. One remote for both BRAVIA devices, awesome invention

Closed Captioning (I am deaf) via HDMI cable not possible. Recommend that BD device decode the closed captioning off DVD or BD BEFORE sending through HDMI. Closed captioning interprets music (in background) where SDH do not and other things too

Very Pleased - Excellent for Price

 

Bought this from BJ's (the BVD-T57 version but the same as I can see) for $299, very good value, was a breeze to set up (if you have done any stereo set up before). The overall sound quality is perfect for a small to medium room, though it will ......

Easy set up, significant features, cheap price, good surround sound quality, all-in-one ease

Remote not able to run control sufficient functions of TV, only one HDMI input, fiber optic digital cable not included

value & performance beats all others for price

 

shop around as the prices vary by over 200 bucks! you can get it for under $350 with an extended 3 yr warranty for $35 by shopping around

sound is great for a small to medium room

a little dated technology wise, but if you are not into hi-tech gizmos, this is the one for all you will need

Consumer review by:

Excellent HTIB!

 

I'm surprised this and it's brother, the BDV-E770 are getting such poor reviews. I think for the price it's fantastic. I got mine for $260 open box from cowboom.com. I've read that the system fails during updates over wifi, so to be safe I updated mine...

Loads of features, sounds great, looks fantastic, amazing blu ray picture quality and speed, great price

Having trouble with the DLNA functionality, but I might just need to research it more. Wish it had the new style of Netflix available on Xbox 360 and Roku. This one only lets you see your instant queue. You have to search and add from your comp

Horrible quality, HDMI port is defective out of the box

 

Bought this BDV-E570 to complement my Bravia KDL-40V5100. Out of the box, this E570 unit's HDMI output port was defective. the TV displayed the message "No signal" when I selected the HDMI input port connected to the E570. Sony's Tech support confirmed...

the sound is ok in a small room and the WIFI worked well with Netflix

No quality control at Sony manufacturing. Sony ships out defective products and expects their paying customers to ship them right back for repair. 3 out of 4 Sony video components I purchased required repair or exchange. That's a lousy record

Entry level, not bad if you can get it cheap

 

I thought that this system would be "good enough" to replace my aging mid-level sound system (Denon receiver + Paradigm speakers). Well, if you have (or have had) a decent sound system at home, this will disappoint. But to put it in perspective, the...

3D compatible ; subwoofer better than expected ; good Blu Ray quality; does have a microphone for initial speaker setup ; Streams Netflix, Pandora, Youtube, etc

Sounds a bit tinny ; no HDMI inputs means separate video and Audio connections for your gear ; really meant for those who want an easy way to upgrade so-so TV speakers
