Sony BDV-E770W review


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. If you don't care about sound quality and you only need HDMI, WiFi, BD...

Internet connectivity, nice interface

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

New Purchase Sony BDV_E770W


I like the product and appreciated the fact that the layout was similar to other Sony products we own. However, I think that it is a little slow when you try to shut it off. If you accidentally hit the power button you have to sit and wait for it to...

Great System


I really have enjoyed this new surround system, I only wished I would have waited just a few more days. Saw it at best buy for about $150 cheaper, but overall very satisified with the system and the spped at which i was able to get it delivered.

Excellent choice


This has been the best home theater system that I have ever purchased. Right out of the box and within minutes ready to play and enjoy. An oustanding choice for the price. Thanks.

Worst WIFI ever


Don't expect to use this wirelessly for video or audio, it's slow and endlessly loads to nowhere.

Great sound, like the rear speakers, easy to set up and operate

Terrible WiFi range, wouldn't play a Netflix movie all the way thru at even 15 ft away from the router, finally paid our cable provider 30 bucks to add a wired connection behind it, which fixed all slow or no loading issues with video and audio

Excellent System


Love the system. Works great, sounds great!! Had no problems with set up, and was streaming music from my Windows 7 Dell laptop and watching online content (NetFlix, Hulu, etc.) in no time.

Nothing special. Firmware is weakest link.


I bought this unit for the wireless rear speakers and that works well. Although, I am disappointed about the firmware. From a media player point of view, a different firmware front end would have been vastly better. A recent firmware update caused a...

Easy setup, wireless real speakers work well 100% of the time

Wireless connectivity is not very reliable and the range needs desperate improvement. The system shut down time is long, if you accidentally shut it off, prepare for a 30 second wait before being able to turn the unit back on. The firmware is typical...

Sound goes off


Suspect quality

Good unit features

I have had this unit for just over two months and it was working fine. The last few days the sound will go off after about ten minutes. I have check connections and it is the unti because the tuner does not have any sound
