Great Unit for the Money
Short Version: I use this unit primarily for streaming but I also wanted blu-ray/dvd/cd capability in a single unit. It excels at all functions. While my wireless signal is strong, I prefer wired connections for added stability – another feature of this player. Performance is very good all around and I recommend the unit as a great value for the money. Details and minor flaws noted below:
A few bugs. Better than last years models.
A nice streaming player. Colors are vibrant, Wi-Fi connection works well. Mostly, not too much lag time when pressing buttons. The Blu-ray/DVD player work as they should. I am really reviewing the streaming. I have YouTube, Netflix, Vudu, and Amazon Prime. I have a Roku 3, and this BDP-S6700 video blows that away. The BDP-S6700 also supports 24p on Vudu, Amazon, and Netflix.
Finally, the right all in one player for me.
Given that this is a Sony, it’s fast with great video and audio quality for BluRays and DVDs, so I’ll leave that to other reviews. Here I’ll cover the extra features important in my house. One simple device for everyone in the house to learn and not have to flip between devices and learn different controls is a helpful beginning. The interface is simple and easily customized with the streaming services and NAS connection I want to see. It’s a little annoying that the left hand 1/3 of the screen has Sony’s “Featured Apps” and they can’t be removed, but I’ll live with that.
Capable of Becoming Streaming Headquarters
I have 1100 DVDs and HD-DVDs and no Blu Ray discs, so needless to say, I was very interested in the Sony machine, because it could not only play, but upgrade DVDs to HD and even beyond if the TV was capable of showing it. Upon receipt, it took perhaps 20 minutes to get it on line with my wireless network, and another 5 minutes to download the latest software. I immediately tested the claim to upgrade DVDs by playing one that had turned green on my old player. Not on was the color restored, but the picture was far superior to what it had been before. I still do not own any Blu Ray discs, so I can’t speak to that capability, and I also do not have a 4K or 3D TV, so I can address those features. I do, however, have an excellent Samsung 1920 x 1080 LED, 55-inch TV and the picture of the regular DVDs was excellent. I’ve saved the best features to the end. I currently use–used–an Apple TV system to stream Netflix and other systems. As one might know, Apple makes it difficult for Amazon Prime Video to stream over their system. Well, this player has the APP for Netflix, Amazon Video, and several others built in. I have not used my Apple TV since I bought this player, because not only does it play what I’m interested in–Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube, etc. but the picture displayed is far superior to that streamed by Apple TV without the fuss that Apple TV requires. Bottom line–this is an excellent machine that does everything it says it will, and in a very small package (about the size of a lined notepad and about 2 inches high. It weighs less than 3 pounds.
Plays well, but PAUSE
I have no complaints about the player itself in regards to picture quality and features except for one complaint. PAUSE – Often when watching a movie I will pause the player and make popcorn or use the bathroom. This particular model will only pause for a limited amount of time then it basically shuts off. This would be OK if it remembered where it left off on the disc, but it doesn’t. I am forced to reload the disc, go through the previews (when they can’t be skipped), get to the menu and pull up the scene selection and attempt to find my place again. Sometimes which scene that is isn’t obvious and if I am watching a movie for the first time the scene selection often results in spoilers. I bought this because my old player was giving me problems and it was affordable at a time when money was, not tight exactly but not as flexible as I desired it to be. I will most likely replace with player with a better one soon.
