Add the BDP-S390 Blu-ray Disc Player from Sony to your living room home entertainment center, and it might become your new favorite room of the house. With support for full HD 1080p resolution, this disc player is capable of delivering vivid, realistic imaging to your HDTV screen. Even your old standby favorites can be upconverted to near-HD picture quality.

As a networked Blu-ray disc player, the BDP-S390 can be connected to your home network easily without any need for an external adapter. Once you're up and running, you'll have access to tons more entertainment right at your fingertips. For starters, this is less of a standard disc player and more like a multimedia powerhouse, beginning with its side gig as a DJ. You probably already have a free Pandora account, and maybe even listen on your computer or smartphone. Now, you can sync your Blu-ray disc player to those custom-tailored radio stations you've already created and enjoy them in the living room streamed onto the disc player. You can also see user-uploaded video clips on YouTube, so you won't miss out on any of the top rated videos of the day.

The fun has just begun -- if you already have a monthly subscription to HuluPlus, you can keep on enjoying its expanded content library that includes full seasons and more episodes of shows already available through Hulu, streamed right to the BDP-S390. Same goes for Netflix; sign into your account to keep up with your favorite TV shows or search from their movie database. This disc player also supports BD Live, which are movie extras included on many Blu-ray discs. These can include Internet chats, scheduled chats with the director, Internet games, featurettes, quizzes, and movie trailers. You can even share what you're watching with friends via Facebook and Twitter.

Chances are you may have an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android-based smartphone, or even a Sony tablet. If so, you're in luck -- in addition to running apps, web browsing, text messaging or whatever else you do with your portable devices -- you can download a remote control app specifically for your BDP-S390. It gives you a full keyboard and movie information search capabilities right from your device. Very cool!

The BDP-S390 also supports decoding for lossless audio formats Dolby TrueHD and dts-HD, which are included on many Blu-ray discs. So if you connect it to your A/V receiver you can send up to 7.1 channels of realistic surround sound to your speaker system. That way you can get the full realism and thrill of the theater, right from your very own couch.

With support for DLNA, you can wirelessly access music, videos and photos from your PC or other compatible Android device and stream them right to the BDP-S390. Or, you can connect a USB drive to the easy-access front USB input to enjoy your stored media. If you have Sony Wireless Network speakers, you can wirelessly stream music throughout the house. And if you have other Sony products with BRAVIA Sync, you can control them all with just a single remote. While watching, you can also get detailed information about the movie you're watching and seach across Internet apps like YouTube and Video Unlimited for related entertainment with Gracenote.

Given this new multimedia gateway that will be housed in your living room, you probably want to get started right away. Luckily, this disc player features a quick start and load time so you can do just that.

      I own an older Sony Blu-ray player, but it does not have the internet content capability. I was looking for a Sony unit that would access Netflix and Amazon Prime streaming, and this unit (Sony BDP-S390) had what I was looking for.

      The unit was extremely easy to set up. I was up and running in under 5 minutes, including connecting to my home wireless network.

      Both Netflix and Amazon work flawlessly. I have seen the internet interface on other brand units, and the Sony interface compares favorably. It is very easy to navigate. I watch all of my TV with subtitles or CC, and the unit does support this feature.

      Other internet content such as music through Pandora and Slacker, and YouTube content also works very well.

      The picture quality on both streaming and Blu-ray discs is excellent.

      Sony Bluray devices have severe problems with Netflix. HD content (like most recent movies) - which is what we buy HD equipment for - DOES NOT STREAM without freezing and pauses to re-buffer every few minutes. After hours of tweeks suggested by Sony telephone support (including manually configuring ISP settings, changing DNS settings, doing factory resets, etc etc), the unit still does not stream. If you google search the issue you will see that thousands of users have this type of issue. To watch Netflix I use my Ipad with a HDMI adapter which works just fine. SO... save your money, buy a $[$] adapter and watch Netflix without all the grief. Shame on Sony for making this product line and shame on B&H for continuing to sell it. This is something that is wide open for a class action lawsuit.

                    I bought this product primarily to turn my TV into a wireless smart TV, and secondarily for DVD and CD play. It had an easy setup, is intuitive to use, and I am pleased with the sound and picture quality!

                    This is the first time I have purchased from B&H and I was impressed! Their prices were competitive, their packaging and shipping very fast, and they had customer service. I will definitely be a repeat customer. Thank you!

                          I learned some time back that if I purchase electronics from a secondary manufacturer, I get what I pay for -- and I regret it. Sony doesn't disappoint. I chose this model in particular because I wanted one with a wi-fi connection that was easy to set-up, AND I wanted one that would allow me to easily connect to my [@] Prime Account (videos). As a bonus, the player loads DVD's quickly and is responsive to remote commands (lesser DVD players are sluggish -- if you've had one, you know what I mean. I now own 2 of these Sonys.

                              I was looking for a Blueray player that would be compatible with a TV set with analog input yet would work for a future 'modern' TV purchase. Works great for what I needed and very simple/quick hook-up. I haven't explored all the features yet, but I plan to. I find this product to be very affordable and feature loaded.

                                    I received this item very well packed and in a pretty fast pace for a free shipment. The unit arrived with its firmware updated to the latest release that Sony has for it. After presenting the unit to the internet webs it was bundle-up with a lot of internet watching possibilities that we are already enjoying. I'm still not a believer of the wireless, so it was hardwire connected to my network. Now I can also enjoy pictures and music from my computer! I might buy another one for my garage. So far...no problems at all!

                                      Worked perfect right out of the box. I like how it will play VOB, MPG2 and AVCHD files on a usb flash drive.

                                        I purchased this player because it had such excellent reviews all over the web. Now it is getting one more. Our old BluRay player was not wi-fi so it started to cut out when watching movie because it couldn't be properly updated. It was incredibly easy to set up. I never even pulled the instructions out. Sony loads this with a bunch of very cool features like ultra easy access to YouTUbe & Netflix along with dozens of other sites & spots for music, news & movies. DOn't hesitate. This thing lives up to the hype.

                                                    Sony Bluray devices have severe problems with Netflix. HD content (like most recent movies) - which is what we buy HD equipment for - DOES NOT STREAM without freezing and pauses to re-buffer every few minutes. After hours of tweeks suggested by Sony telephone support (including manually configuring ISP settings, changing DNS settings, doing factory resets, etc etc), the unit still does not stream. If you google search the issue you will see that thousands of users have this type of issue. To watch Netflix I use my Ipad with a HDMI adapter which works just fine. SO... save your money, buy a $[$] adapter and watch Netflix without all the grief. Shame on Sony for making this product line and shame on B&H for continuing to sell it. This is something that is wide open for a class action lawsuit.

                                                    If you're use to the fine quality of Sony products of the past, you WILL be disappointed with this cheaply made plastic DVD player. NO DISPLAY on front of unit at all! Remote is ok. Pressing power button on remote or player turns on 1 small LED. ALL DVD player status info can only be viewed on the TV screen. Initial setup required a call to Sony to provide critical setup info NOT included in the manual. Picture & sound good for a unit in this price range. As a retired Broadcast Engineer, I am very disappointed in what the Sony Corp. has turned into.

                                                    As usual, fast shipping by B&H was excellent.

                                                      Set the box up easily. Wifi connectivity isn't the best. Netflix doesn't seem to work. Amazon streaming works better. Happy with this product.

                                                          Great player for portable projectors. I make and show Blu-ray discs to groups and needed a player with separate audio out and HDMI. With a projector you need separate speakers and this does both in a very small and light weight unit.
                                                          This unit has no problems playing discs creates with Sony Vegas, something many other brands cannot do.
