Not worth it

By AudioFiloDough

from Los Angeles

Comments about Sony Internet-Ready 3D Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

I've been a Sony loyalist for over 25 years. This Blu-ray player may finally be the nail in the loyalty coffin. Internet access is temperamental on a very strong home connection. The player's menu feels clunky and inefficient. I'm surprised this is the 'top of the line'. Definitely has a long way to go.

Nice but maybe a bit klunky

By Zaphod

from Washington, D.C. vicinity

Comments about Sony Internet-Ready 3D Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

The DVD experience is as good as on any other DVD player. It's hooked into my 5.1 sound system, and its performance and compatibility in that area are fine. Nice that it controls the Sony HDTV, so you only have to hit one remote. On the other hand, the Sony HDTV remote controls it, too, except that the OPTIONS button results in a different menu. I use the wireless networking features extensively, even though I did not intend to prior to purchase. I watch YouTube and Netflix only via this device. Have also watched Flickr and European news coverage. Thought those would be mere gimmicks, but I continue to watch them. Every now and then the unit flakes out and needs to be rebooted, an inexcusable bit of bad software engineering. Also, online ordering and delivery went smoothly.

Great until it fails

By DPAirboat

from Inverness, FL

Comments about Sony Internet-Ready 3D Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

I have loved Sony products for over 30 years and until recently given Sony a 10 out of 10, but their warranty has been the worst. Can't get in touch ot just plain egnored. I really like this BDP-S790, it sometimes does not play a DVD disc that others players in my home play, and now it stops, jumps and hesitates when playing DVD's, but still plays Blue Ray, what's up with that. I am having so much trouble trying to get warranty, and it runs out 09/19/2013. Less than a year old and trouble all ready. Time to go to another product.

Works Well

By dustnik

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Internet-Ready 3D Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

At first I had trouble getting my music files to stream, but that was because they were ripped to WMA. None of the techs at Sony could figure out was wrong, (even though I told them the files were WMA). But since then my music collection has been ripped to MP3 and it all works beautifully. Also, it doesn't support Airplay. I wish there was a shuffle feature though and a way to incorporate a visualization. I've never used the internet or 3D features, so I can't comment on them. All in all, I'm happy with it.

3D Compatibility SUCKS

By LongingFor3D

from Tampa

Comments about Sony Internet-Ready 3D Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

S790 doesn't recognize my Bach & Odin HXD-1113 as a 3D display. Funny works fine with my LG BP620. Sony manual says to turn OFF the 3D output which apparently ignores the display devise type but then the projector says INVALID FORMAT (playing Avatar figured its been out long enough to work with all equipment). So just because you buy a Sony BD do you REALLY have to buy a Sony TV ???? The LG works on my XBR (pre 3D unfortunately) & the HXD. So I think I'll just buy LG when I replace the TV. You know the BP730 does 4k too.

Buy this ONE!

By Trinitron

from New Hampshire

Comments about Sony Internet-Ready 3D Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

The hardware in this player is top shelf. This is the first player I've owned (this is number 12) that truly presents a vivid life like experience. The video and sound quality will satisfy the low tech and the high tech user alike. The easy setup menu takes minutes to walk through, and has enough Internet connectivity for even the most demanding tech geek. Bottom line, its a SONY, if it doesn't blow your hair back they will exchange it. Oh!! ....but it will, it will

Great player , lousy controls

By Hunter1

from Juniata, NE

Comments about Sony Internet-Ready 3D Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

This is a great player with two very irritating items of note. Number 1 - the remote has an inner and outer circle in the center which controls different functions. These circles are right next to each other and if you have large fingers or are not very careful you will be continually hitting the wrong button. the control buttons are very sensitive and this is very annoying. You should be able to control a remote without looking at it after awhile. That's not the case with this one. Number 2 - The manual controls on the player itself are poorly located on the top of the player and not labeled. This are especially annoying if the player is in an entertainment center and you have the slide you fingers across the top until something happens. Aside from these two annoyances it is a great player.

...better than a PS3?

By wopo

from Williston Vermont

Comments about Sony Internet-Ready 3D Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

I never thought that I'd find a Blu-ray 3D player that could match my PS3, but the 790 does--and then some. I've compared it with Oppo and Panasonic players only to find that it not only equals them but surpasses on almost every critical point. i have paired it with my Onkyo 5010 receiver and the Panasonic 7000u projector. Rarely have I been so impressed at the quality of the image projected as I have been with this combo. Perhaps these units "like" to play together synergistically or maybe I just got lucky but I couldn't recommend this combination more highly. After watching my first DVD on the unit, I found myself screening films I haven't viewed in years to make sure the quality of the picture remained. I was surprised to find that it did. My experience with 3D was also impressive. I reviewed such excellent 3D source material as "Hugo" and "Avatar". Finally...no ghosting and real depth in the picture. I even watched the new fake 3D version of "Titanic" with some small degree of awe. The audio from the 790 was also impressive. Although it is a very subjective point of view, certainly the sound from my 11.2 channel receiver was outstanding and impressive. To my ears it had never been matched by my Panasonic DVD player and the latest Denon receiver. I just finished watching "The Expendables" (...and, trust me, expendable it is) because, to my knowledge, it's the first disc truly encoded with 11.2 audio channels. The sound field was as impressive as the film was mediocre. I have played with all of the tech options that are available on the 790 but I've never found any that were an improvement or the factory originals. I do look forward to combining the 790 with a 4K disc when they arrive or a regular disc upscaled by this player. Indeed, the fact that this Sony contains this option already makes it future proof to some extent. I consider the 790 the best value I've ever received from a player. Combine this with the stellar video performance and I can truly say that I look forward to hundreds of hours of excellent entertainment from the unit. ...Now if the'd just get rid of the annoying buttons and include a back-lit remote, I would be the totally happy couch potato I feel I deserve to be! tc

Excellent complement to a Sony 3D HDTV

By FranklinMint

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Sony Internet-Ready 3D Blu-ray Player With Built-In Wi-Fi:

This is my 5th Sony Blu-ray player. They have gotten better with each new player. This player is no exception. Video quality is greatly improved with 16 bit processing. Much better than it's predecessor, the BDP-780. When playing a Blu-ray disc, the player automatically selects the best audio CODEC for your audio set-up. The new Netflix interface is similar to the Nintendo Wii and is much faster when loading content via WiFi. Web streaming is vastly improved and quite noticeable on Netflix. Netflix video resolution now approaches 1080P with outstanding 5.1 audio. Sony has again added more Internet widgets over the previous model, BDP-780. DLNA works well, but still doesn't decode Apple's audio format, AAC, on iTunes. DLNA works well with most popular video formats. It also plays Sony's video camera formats, however 1080P content from your Sony camera on your computer does not play smoothly over WiFi. The output 3D signal on HDMI now passes through the Bose Lifestyle V25 Home Theater System to a Sony 3D TV. This was seldom the case with the BDP-780. All-in-all, those upgrading from the BDP-780 will be pleased with the improved features of the BDP-790. These improvements are well worth the money spent on this new player.
