Just wanted to share my quick experience with the Sony s6200... I own a Denon DBT-3313, so my comparison is to that machine. Obviously the Denon is much more expensive, but so is the OPPO that this thread regularly references. With the Sony being so highly regarding and the Best Buy ad putting the player under 150.00 I decided to purchased one. My father had purchased this model about a month ago, but returned it. We are in two different, non-adjacent states (not that it matters).
His experience: Fired the unit up, never updated firmware. After a half dozen uses, the player completely froze and could not recover even when unplugged. It was returned the week it was purchased.
My experience: I immediately installed and updated to the latest firmware. I fired up Prometheus blu-ray just to test PQ. It was a nice picture but very clearly inferior to the much more expensive Denon. I didn't mind. The unit was meant to be a value purchase. I did not have time to watch the film, just checked things out. On the second day, I fired up a standard DVD, watched approx. 30 min then stopped the film. The image was a far cry from the Denon. It was an older DVD, but virtually unwatchable on to my eyes on the Sony. I took the disc out, but left my entire HT on while I stepped away for about an hour. When I came back, I was going to throw in a blu-ray, but found the unit completely frozen and unresponsive to remote or buttons. I hard powered it off, then on and it did indeed begin to work properly. I watched my movie without issue.
Given my dad's experience and my similar one, it's going back. I'm within the return window, so it seems a no-brainer. My dad exchanged for a Samsung f7500, which he is extremely happy with so far. Again, all just FYI...
