The War Netflix movie

The War

Netflix movie streaming performance is smooth and clear didn t have the glitch, sluggishness and jerky issue as described by other reviewers. For those folks who are looking for a BD player I highly recommend this unit due to its excellent performance, functionality and its cheaper price than the other competing players with similar attributes. The only cons is the remote control which didn t have an eject button, my older Sony DVD changer remote has one! UPDATE: Relocated the unit upstairs with my main TV, there is no LAN drop in the living I ordered a D-Link DAP 1522 wireless bridge/AP last week and it finally arrived today. Link up/set up was easy and successful to my Netgear wireless N gigabit router WNR-35 Nice thing about the D-link bridge it has 4 ports which I was able to link my Dish DouDVR VIP722 receiver as well. The D-link bridge is a better alternative to the Sony recommended Linksys bridge WET-610N. We are having a lot of fun with this blu-ray player. I bought this for my husband because he wanted something that would stream Netflix to the TV and also play blu-rays. The player was quite easy to set up and use. We have a slow Internet connection and so the Netflix movies take a little while to load and they are not DVD quality but they play just fine without any stopping and starting. The blu-ray quality is great but we only own one blu-ray that we ve been able to test, and the player is also packed with a lot of other nice extras such as music stations and photo CD playback. I m not the expert on blu-rays this is my first venture into this market but I definitely think this is a great product, especially considering that it is less than 2 I researched a lot of blu-ray players before deciding on this one, and so far I m quite happy with my choice. Got this as part of a special along with the 46 inch Sony BF week special. Not sure if its the TV46V5100 or the player but was just watching Star Trek standard DVD not Bluray and the upscaling was excellent. I m sure with a true BR disc, it will be even better. I ve used the same disc on a standard Sony DVD player and the resolution is no comparison. In addition, action scene was pretty smooth without pixelation. Haven t used the internet/streaming features and at present don t plan on it. There is one gripe I have about this machine and is my fault for not reading the desciption you can stream from the internet, but in order for wifi you need a wifi bridge which is NOT included. I thought this model had wifi. It would have been even better if Sony actually had wifi built in like the other BR player. Even Samsung includes a USB adapter for wifi. You can stream with ethernet connection but it would be ugly to run the Cat-5 cables along the ceiling to my office where the router is set up. Great feature my wife loves, with Bravia sync with our 46 incher Sony BRAVIA V-Series KDL-46V5100 46-Inch 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV, Black, press play and it turns on the TV with the right AV channel. WOW, ?!? can you say awesome!!!!! Just got the Trendnet Wireless N Gaming Adapter from Amazon TRENDnet Wireless N Gaming Adapter-Black TEW-647GA V 0Rgoldbox deal special for 99 you ROCK Jeff B!!!!! and connected to the player to get streaming Netflix!! Setting it up a pain at first from the BR player end, where I tried to use the Wireless bridge option and the player wouldnt connect so I had to chose the wired option under the menu yes, it is still a wireless setup just how the Sony connects to the bridge in the menu selection was wired rather than wireless and then it worked like a charm. I have a Linksys wireless router running G, not N, and streaming Netflix/youtube I did not get any hiccups, saw The Matrix Revolution please be aware, if you are expecting HD streaming quality, forget about it, its more comparable to DVD quality I was blown away with it still, given that it was wireless streaming and not a direct ethernet connection. granted not the same as BluRay quality. I wanted to buy the apple airport express for its smaller footprint but 30 vs you decide. The trendnet is actually pretty small by itself. Setting up Netflix was somewhat painful too I m a low maintence person because you had to register online with Sony, run to the PC, with a code the BR player gives you, then run back to the player, then run to the pc to logon to Netflix with another code to activate your account yes, I could have all done it if I had my laptop. Despite these issues its still a 5 star product as setup was not difficult but more time consuming in terms of the need for PC/internet access as well instead of doing everything all from the BluRay player. If the world was perfect, I would say forget about owning media DVD, BR, HDDVD, SD, MC, Hammer just stream HD content through Netflix. Listen up Hollywood this is the future. Pay a monthly fee and watch any movie in high-def streamed to your home. If you want to talk about GREEN, this is the way to go, no disc, no packaging to waste. Nada you leave behind nothing. Can you saw Netflix ROCKS!!! We actually don t use the player to watch BR discs but just standard DVD. Anyhow, even though I have the discs in the queue to be mailed out from Netflix, I ve been streaming Lost Season 5 throught Netflix instead and its AMAZING. It actually streams in HD and the picture quality is great matched with the Sony Bravia 46 incher without any lag in the stream, very smooooooth. BTW, as I ve mentioned earlier, I m streaming this through wireless using a bridge with 802G and not N or a direct ethernet connection. The streaming quality is very smooth. This is definitely the future and Netflix got a handle on this form of delivery.
