      Just bought this player 3 days ago. Had the other top brand along with a not so old Sony. The Wi-Fi range is 10x better! Where I used to have buffering before..... NO MORE! (same cable provider and same exact place I had the other players) The picture with streaming and dvd is even better then my PS3. As hard as I am to be happy with a product, I am blown away! This is my first written review ever. I had to let buyers know this is finally the way a blu-ray player supposed to work....PERIOD!

      The blu-ray player worked fine for a couple of days and then the screen started to flicker off and on while on the main menu. Installed the latest firmware update and switched the hdmi cables and it still flickers. It seems that there possibly might be problems with a few LG tv's not being fully campatable with this model as I have read several other reviews on the net that have the same problem as I am having. Will be returning asap!

          Comments about Sony BDP-S3100 Blu-ray Disc Player with Super Wi-Fi:

          This is a tentative 5-star rating because I've only had the Blu-Ray player for a week, but so far it's perfect. It's tiny enough to fit into its small space, and despite its considerable distance from the router it streams Netflix with ease. A breeze to set up. I have no complaints.

                I bought this player not only for the Blu-ray but the Wifi. The connection has been flawless on DSL. I stream Pandora thru my stereo TV & Hulu TV. The main complaint is when trying to use YouTube - it hangs up.

                Easy to hook up. I was up and running in about 15 mins. You do need to register online with Sony Entertainment before content will work and there was a firmware auto upgrade out of the box. And some of the shows from Hulu do NOT stream - does not view as a computer or home network. These little things kept me from rating 5 stars.

                                  I bought this player to assist me in getting rid of cable. It has built in media for connecting to Netflix, Hulu, etc. It was easy to hook up and instantly worked with my wireless router. I was also able to hook-up my digital camera via the USB port on the front of the player, which makes watching home videos a snap. I love it!

                                      I like everything about the player. B&H is very quick to ship and they have the best deals on the net.

                                      More than a purchase I got this as an exchange of a defective Samsung Blue Ray and I am so glad about this! No comparison at all with the previous item, Sony is top of the top!

                                            I am new to the smart tv, smart apps market and did some research to get up to speed. I bought the Sony Blu-ray player with Super WIFi and have been blown away by its quality with discs and steaming super HD video.

                                                  Its an awesome blu ray player and very easy setup.I waas able to control the player using my andorid phone tv View and best part is i can stream the youtube video from my phone to TV suing this player which is most wonderful thing, earlier to this player i was using Wii device to stream youtube , typing is quite hard to do this wii control but now things much easier to serach and stream instally.

                                                  The clarity is 4.6/5 , the menu are smaller , so the UI i would rate 3.9/5.Overall I am enjoying this new player and watching my wishlist movies.

                                                    I ordered this blue ray player from [*].. its pretty light weight and i carried it to india..I have old sony LCD tv without wifi and inbuilt 2.4 Ghz wifi works like a charm, it works faster than my laptop and i love watching youtube on my tv nw.I also tried few movies from my passport drive and to my surprise it upscaled the video qwality and its a pleasure to watch them now on tv.have not tried dvds or blue rays so far but i am sure they will work greatExcellent player!!
