I have the Sony BDV-E385 which, I believe, is the same unit minus the ipod dock. I think this is a great unit. I have it connected to a Sony KDL-52v5100 52" TV in a 12' X 14' room. The speakers produce great sound. It is very easy to connect, but I as disappointed that it came with no hdmi inputs. I have since read that that is pretty typical for a HTIB. I had to improvise on my hook up as I was prepared to only use hdmi. Otherwise, I have no complaints. The NetFlix and other apps are easy to set up and use.
