5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore Other Reviews!! March 31 2012
By Vaio
I own this Sony S580 Blu Ray Player and absolutely love it!

- If you read the first review, the customer is angry about not being able to hook it up properly without the use of an HDMI cable... All Blu Rays recommend this use of an HDMI cable, if your tv can't hook up to an HDMI connection, then you have no use for a Blu Ray, buy an up-converting DVD player (even most of those use HDMI, but will take component)

- #2 the guy is angry because it was out of stock and amazon could not get it to him, never happened on me on here but I am sure it does once and a while.

A proper review is wi-fi works great, Slacker radio is included and sounds great, much better then any TV music you get with cable TV. Movies look wonderful in 1080P. My connection is using an HDMI into my amp and HDMI out to TV from amp, also sounds wonderful with my surround sound. Load times are fast, and having access to Netfilx, YouTube, NHL Vault, and as mentioned Slacker Radio and many other online apps included in the Blu Ray. If you were always thinking of buying one now, this is it, like I said it has built in wi-fi so you can do updates and access to programs plus is 3D compitable so it will be ready if you have a 3D TV now or may end up buying one in the future. Highly recommended this Sony Blu Ray player.

I discovered recently that Blu-ray machines are being produced that will only output high defintion signals via HDMI. Since I don't have equipment that supports HDMI, I thought I would purchase this blu-ray player because it had the same specs as the Sony BDP S350 which outputs an awesome picture through my projector in my home theatre. Since blu-ray players having component colour jacks are also becoming less frequently produced, I decided to purchase this unit in the event that the current unit should fail at some point in the future. To upgrade all my equipment to handle HDMI would cost a small fortune. Given that this model (S-580)has been discontinued and I couldn't find any new models in stores, I ordered this through an Amazon seller after sourcing more detailed specs on other sites.

I received the unit, set it up with the same outputs in the setup menu as I currently use on the S-350. The player indicated it was sending out the signal at 720p, which is the maximum resolution of the projector. The image looked great. However, once the program on the DVD started, the HD indicator went out and the display indicated the signal was at 480p. The big surprise was playing a Blu-ray disk. Output is at 480i which was the highest resolution I could get from this unit when playing Blu-Ray discs.

Talked to Sony and the tech support was surprised as well -- remarked that conversion seemed to be going in the wrong direction, must be a defective unit. After some further research and a review on Amazon.com, I learned that Blu-Ray discs now only output in high defintion through the HDMI interface due to High Definition Copy Protection installed on machines manufactured after January 2011.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in amazon.ca Jan. 26 2012
When I ordered the Sony BDP-S580 for a bargain price of $140 during Boxing week, amazon said they had a couple available. But after the transaction went through, I received an email saying that it would be two months before it would be shipped. One month later amazon.ca cancelled my order. When it is too good to be true it isn't.

Eventually, Amazon starting selling this model again. The price is lower now. The product is very slow for viewing photos from a WD MyBook Live. It plays Blu-Ray and DVD OK. Don't bother trying to access internet pages without using the ipod app; imagine keying in letters using the number keypad on the remote! Sony Entertainment Network is rather limited in its offerings for movies. There is no Cinema Now app on this unit. Wireless works OK but some devices (computers) only connect to this unit if it is connected to the network by cable not wireless; that sort of defeats the point of wireless.
