Sony BDV-E770W

 

The Sony BDV-E770W is the company's flagship Blu-ray home theater for 2010 and it's outfitted with just about every feature you could think of. It can stream media for a ton of online sources (including Netflix, Amazon VOD, Pandora, and Slacker) and it...

A 5.1 home theater system with built-in Blu-ray player; excellent sound quality for a home-theater-in-a-box system; Netflix, Amazon VOD, YouTube, Pandora, and Slacker media streaming; DLNA streaming of PC-based media; wireless rear speakers; Wi-Fi with...

No HDMI inputs; required USB dongle for Wi-Fi is a hassle compared with other units; only three external devices can be connected at once

The Sony BDV-E770W is one of the best Blu-ray home theater systems we've tested, with excellent sound quality, tons of streaming-media options, 3D compatibility, and wireless rear speakers. The lack of HDMI inputs is the only big omission.

"Poor sound"

 

BDV-E770W as well as the flagship BDV-E980W have terrible sound, compared to other brands, even cheaper ones. BDV-E980W has everything BDV-E770W lacks, but the sound is the same.

Internet connectivity, nice interface

Very bad sound. The sound is confused, tremble is almost absent. No possibility to adjust Bass/Tremble

"Handsome compact unit: a nice array streaming options."

 

This is no substitute for separate components. If you are starved for space, or aren't too critical about audio it is fine.

Good Streaming options.

Only sounds good within a certain volume range. It seems like the unit has a built in loudness tone shaping circuit which kicks in below a certain threshold. At lower volume levels the system sounds quite colored. At louder volume levels the system seems

Good all-around system with a few flaws

 

Not too great if your focus is music. There are better sounding options for that (choose a system with a receiver). But for the money, this is a pretty decent system. Now if only I could get a stable network connection going....

Tons of media streaming options. Great for streaming music, movies, and photos from your PC to your T.V

Some of the media streaming options are clunkers you'll never use and wish you could remove. Internet connection is fickle and easily dropped. "network error" is a phrase you'll see quite often. Can't use any other speakers with this system except those p

excellent blueray receiver and surround..

 

Now that the price has dropped this is a great deal.I picked up a new set for 350.00.. The front and center speakers are too small to deliver good music.. So i used my old ones..big improvement.Tiny speakers are really tweeters and have miminal output...

stellar blu ray video's ; easy to set up ; affordable ; linked to my toshiba TV

shaky netfix ; multiple hdmi inputs would help ; instruction book ; Not a home theater remote

Very fair price, Fair to Good sound, Dead components

 

I bought this almost a year ago, but was browsing reviews of consumer report (CR) picks again as I prepare to give my parents advice. At the time I purchased, two different tech-savvy friends were helping a mutual friend research and purchase a truly...

Price: $330 door buster vs. $2500 for true, theater-like sound. Only this and Samsung HT-6500 include bluray player & get Consumer Reports recc. Speaker auto-calibration good feature, especially for non-tech savvy customers

Annoying, senseless to have proprietary wiring way too short; splicing= signal degradation. b/c very wide, remote signal may be blocked if in a stereo cabinet. Like others, I had dead components to exchange. Samsung reviews show the same, though
