“When I first got this I wanted the networking capabilities and 3D but this thing is awesome. It boots super quick and has a ton of online services such as Amazon Instant Video and Netflix (both of which i use regularly). Netflix is streamed in 7.1 which is nice if you have a 7.1 setup like I do.
This player decodes about every audio format that I've thrown at it from DTS-MA 7.1, DTS-HD,...” --jboo43
“I wanted a one box WiFi solution to my internet HT (no broadcast TV or cable) . I was tired of switching between sources (mainly, Netflix, Amazon, and BluRay) I bought this unit from Amazon two months ago. Picture is as good or better than my old LG. ( I have a large DVD collection and it plays them all, so far) The built in WiFi is reliable and after getting used to their interface, seems...” --samujohn
“The LG BD570 is my first Blu-ray player, and was a key part of my home theater upgrade that started in 2011.
First of all, how does this player do with playing physical disks? Overall, I'm very happy with the BD570's performance and image quality. When I first bought it, my wife and housemates questioned whether there would really be a significant difference between DVDs and Blu-rays, but...” --Natros
“I bought this player four years ago, and it is still my first and only blu-ray player. I have been watching movies frequently on it for the whole time, and have had no issues or mechanical malfunctions. Sony has been kind enough to update the firmware regularly, so it is always compatible with even the newest discs, although with the most feature-rich discs, navigation can be painfully slow. ...” --markhyams
“When it comes to high-definition video technologies, I am an early adopter—which makes it a bit odd that I picked up Sony's BDP-S5100 yesterday. I'm very happy I did, because it is a really great performer that addresses many of my complaints about Blu-ray players. Surprisingly, the Sony player also improved my online-delivery experience, especially the quality of Netflix HD content.
“I was after a universal player for SACD, DVD-A, FLAC (192/24, no less), DLNA, Blu-Ray, 3D, and I thought I had found the perfect compliment to my Yamaha RX-A1020 receiver in the Yamaha BD-A1020. Everything worked as expected when I first set it up until I got the the 3D version of Prometheus. SACD and DVD-A discs played flawlessly, as did streaming various FLAC files from 44/16 all the way up...” --foursticks
“I am almost impressed with this little machine, I can't say I expected much as I got this on a promo for free with the purchase of a Samsung TV. This player is small, about an inch tall and half the depth of a typical DVD player while being standard "rack" width. When its off it almost disappears except for its blue i/o touch button. The gloss black front looks seamless edge to edge. Once...” --ZombieTheater
“I got the opportunity to buy a used but minty Oppo BDP-83SE for a very good price. The seller was upgrading to a BDP-105 and needed some cash so I jumped on the BDP-83SE. I will be making some comparisons with a Pioneer BDP-09FD and Sony BDP-580 player as well.
The Differences with the Oppo 83 and 83SE
The BDP-83SE is an upgraded version of the BDP-83. The upgraded version retailed $400...” --Jon S
“Picture Quality -First off I have a Pioneer Kuro 5080 which is 720p so really can't comment on what PQ is like on a higher resolution TV but it is fine on this. Also my aging eyes are not even 720p. Can't comment on 3D since do not have a 3D TV.
It also upscales regular DVDs very well as far as my bad eyes can tell.
Audio - I have it connected by HDMI through my Yamaha 663 receiver and sound...” --Plasmacat
“I have owned quite a few Blu-Ray players since getting into home home theater, and the Sony BDP-S5000ES is far and away my favorite. I've always been a fan of Sony players, and the 5000ES is my third Sony player overall (in addition to a Fat PS3 and a BDP-S1000ES). A little backstory on this player: The 5000ES was released around late 2008, with an initial price tag of $1500. It was Sony's...” --fatuglyguy
