    Comments about Sony 1000 Watt 5.1 Channel 3D Blu-ray Home Theater System:

    Wish I had the opportunity to read some of these reviews prior to buying last year. I have had no problems with the network update, the Blu-Ray player, or the online content, and the sound is actually pretty good when it works...BUT it frequently drops out when switching between DVR functionality and normal cable viewing. Some times it even drops out when simply changing channels. The only way to get the sound back is to power off the unit and turn it back on. Wired per drawing in instructions:cable box HDMI to BDV-E580 in, BDV HDMI out to TV HDMI in. ARC turned off in BDV. Two different cable boxes, but no change in performance. Just an extremely frustrating experience and there is no consistency with when it will happen. Problem is worse if power saver feature is turned off for quicker boot up.

    It's O.K

    By theMIZE

    from OHIO

    Comments about Sony 1000 Watt 5.1 Channel 3D Blu-ray Home Theater System:

    I bought a KDL55NX720 during the Black Friday sale and got this Blu-ray system for free. Now that I have used it for a few months I have come to realize why it was free! I have both of them hooked up and working great , but for some stupid reason while I am watching TV the surround sound will CUT out and I'll have to reboot EVERYTHING! My DirecTV, Blu-ray, and TV have NO sound! It is the MOST annoying thing! Other than that I have had no issues and the 3D looks pretty good, the iPhone/iPod dock works well, and the internet content works well over my network. All-in-All I give it 3 out of 5 but I do NOT recommend it for anyone!

    Good when it works right

    By beastMODE

    from Sheboygan Falls, WI

    Comments about Sony 1000 Watt 5.1 Channel 3D Blu-ray Home Theater System:

    I have an old $150 pioneer home audio system that gives me no delay, not a powerhouse by any means but it gets the job done very well. I bought this for 3d capabilities which I will be testing out today. But initially there is a delay, and sometimes no response from my audio to the cable box which is quite frustrating. At times it works perfectly and then it is glorious, and at times it doesn't and it makes you angry. I realize that I didn't pay a heck of a lot of money so what can I expect, but hey it was still $350 and that is some good pocket change where I come from. And what is with the screen? You can't see it when you are sitting down you literally have to be standing over it to see what it says?!? If you are asking me if I would recommend this system for anybody to buy the answer would be no...thus far.

    Great unit with a few bugs.

    By SDFileger

    from Jamestown, NY

    Comments about Sony 1000 Watt 5.1 Channel 3D Blu-ray Home Theater System:

    I love the system, it sounds great. Speaker wires for the front speakers could be slightly longer. I like how the menu is set up. The design of the player could be alittle better. The speakers are the perfect size for the room I'm using the unit in. I really like the size of the center channel speaker. It's small and has great sound,it doesn't seem large and bulky like some of the other brands. The few issues I have with the unit are: The remote doesn't always take you to the home menu when the button is pressed. I have to play around with the unit for a few minutes. The other issue is, when I turn the unit on the speakers do not turn on. I have to get into the menu and press the setting I want to get them to work. I have had to turn the unit off twice to reboot it. I have had this now for almost 2 months. Sony needs to address these issues if they can with a patch to adjust the settings so it will work properly all the time. If it wasn't for these few issues I would have given 5 stars. I haven't spoken with customer support so I can't say how well they are with customers. If you don't mind a few bugs I would recommend this Home Theater System.

    Great unit when the sound works

    By Electric

    from Houston TX.

    Comments about Sony 1000 Watt 5.1 Channel 3D Blu-ray Home Theater System:

    I have had several home theater systems and this is the first time I have had probelms. The system worked great right up until I upgraded it, now it takes 3-5 mnutes to hear the sound after I power it up. If this were not a gift I would have returned it long ago. I do not recommend this unit until they fix the alleged upgrade.
