Good solid player

Pros: Quick setup, great picture quality, lots of apps

Cons: Menu screen is a bit too dark, BD player a bit noisy

I've only had this player for a few days, but have played around with it quite a bit over the weekend. I'll preface my review experience by saying that this is my first blu-ray player, so I have nothing to baseline it against. The player loads very quickly upon power up. Compared to the load time on my Oppo 971h DVD player, it's a race car. The picture and sound quality are top notch, as expected. I did not experience any glitches during playback and the 7.1 surround sound is truly immersive.

The Sony BDP-5100 does everything you'd expect and does it very well ata terrific price.

Pros: Top notch picture and top notch 3D. Loads fast and smoothly. Very light and has a small footprint. Can be had for under $110.

Cons: The pro of light weight also makes it feel unsubstantial and a bit cheap. No SD card slot. Not flat on top.

If you're looking for a blu-ray player with most of the smart features, provides a very good picture and sound field, looks great in 3D, then look no further in the under $150 price range. It doesn't take up a lot of space, has a nice easy to use menu along with a nice compact remote. I will certainly miss the SD card slot (my only down grade) on my Panasonic (which I'm keeping for just that feature). I went with the Sony BDP-S5100 because I upgraded to a 3D TV and I am very impressed with the 3D picture. If you're on a reasonable budget and want 3D with a smart blu-ray player this Sony should leave you with a big fat smile on your face.
