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.
