Blu-ray streaming player

Pros: Tons of video and audio content available for streaming;Integrated Wi-Fi 3D and HD 1080p playback; Small footprint Reliable and long-lasting

Cons: No integrated HDTV tuner; Occasionally drops Wi-Fi connection

We have had this for over a year and it still performs great. We use it almost solely for streaming TV and movies from Netflix. Over time, Sony has continued to upgrade the streaming services (many of which are FREE) to the point where there is almost too much content. The player can handle all of our older DVDs. However, we have not invested in any Blu-ray discs, so I cannot comment on the quality. The player has 3D and 1080p playback (which are kind of useless on my 720p tv ). For us, the biggest selling point was integrated Wi-Fi. The player is in a location not easily accessed with cables. The Wi-Fi easily located our network and connected.
