Sony BDP-S3100

 

Sony's budget Blu-ray offers excellent value for money

Good feature list for the money, Slick and easy to use, Sony Entertainment Network

Lags behind Samsung on smart content, No 3D or DivX support, Limited DLNA format support

Sony's 2013 Blu-ray player lineup is price low and feature rich, but it has stiff competition from Samsung, among others. Read on for a full comparison.

It works

 

With the exception of "super wi-fi" this blu-ray player offers everything that it promises. Works perfectly. There is a delay in the response time of the remote when opening/closing an app or powering On/Off. This is a minor issue.

Good Wi-Fi Blu-ray

 

Good Blue-ray player, worked with little effort at setup as long as you have a basic understanding of wireless devices and how to sync them. Plays Netflix perfectly.

None as of yet, almost a year of ownership.

Pleasantly surprised

 

At the price I would not expect 3D, but I bought this as a secondary system for the spare room and found I like the Sony apps better than the apps on my unit in the main room (which has 3D), otherwise it could replace the "better" system I have. All...

Easy connection to wifi, Nice internet apps

does not have 3D

Refurbished Sony BDPS3100 Blu-Ray

 

I have bought a couple of cheap Android streaming devices with Wi-FI and they both worked well as far as the Wi-Fi goes. The Sony Wi-Fi seems very weak. The signal strength is so low that it will only work intermittently.

I bought the Blu-Ray device mostly for streaming Internet content. I have only tried the disk player one time to make sure that it worked. I used a DVD disk to test it and it works fine. The Internet streaming works very well if I use the wired...

I can only get the WI-FI to work intermittently at a distance of about 30ft from the router. I had to use a powerline wired interface device to use the Internet streaming. It is working fine with a set of Actiontec 200 Powerline Network Adapter Kit. I...

Better than anticipated

 

Bought this as a secondary device for a bedroom, but I like the internet apps on this better than the device (different brand) I use in the living area, I need 3D for that room, so if I need to update there I will look at Sony as a possibility then.

Seems to have built in auto energy saving settings, a nice plus for me. Turns out that I like the Sony brand internet hub for this device

none that I have discovered yet
