Compatibility: First and foremost understand THIS IS NOT A 4K PLAYER. It uses "4K upscaling" which is of limited value unless you have a 4K (UHD) display, and even then you'll be disappointed. Here's why: The BDP-S6700 HDMI output is version 1.4a which meets some, but not all, of the minimum requirements for 4K video. Of particular note is color depth. HDMI 1.4a displays a maximum 8-bit color depth (256 colors) which is VGA quality. For full 4K color resolution you need a player with HDMI ver 2.0 or better to get the 10-, 12- or 16-bit colors that really make the new 4K displays shine. I knew this going in so the BDP-S6700 was a perfect match for my "older" (2012) Samsung HD plasma display and Denon AVR-591 receiver.
CAUTION: If you set your BDP-S6700 to a color depth greater than your display can process, you will get screen flickers, interference bands and blank screens. The BDP-S6700 will auto-detect your display and adjust color depth appropriately most of the time. However, if your A/V receiver is rated for 4K - but your display is not - then the BDP-S6700 will pass the high-bit color on to the receiver. Your receiver may or may not scale this back when sending it to your display. This was my experience and it took some hours (and copious cursing) to figure it all out. I offer that experience here to save some of you some frustration. In the settings look for HDMI Deep Color. It defaults to "Auto". Set this to "Off" if you have anything less than a 4K display. Trust me and just do it. You won't see any difference (your display can't resolve it, remember?) and you will save yourself headaches when random artifacts and flickers occur.
Performance: The interface is quick and intuitive. Discs load reasonably fast. Network connection was flawless - the BDP-S6700 detected the network, obtained an IP address and accessed the internet within seconds. Network connections have been rock solid since I connected it. Screen mirroring with my Android phone works very well (IOS users are SOL - I tried 14 different apps with no joy). I don't use Bluetooth devices with it but they are detected without issue. Supposedly upscales 2D-3D (yawn).
Streaming: BDP-S6700 offers 75 streaming apps, most of which are of no interest to me. They've got cooking channels, shopping channels, sports, movies, TV, news. There's even an app in Russian. The most useful IMHO are: Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Vudu, Hulu, YouTube, Pandora and Spotify. All of these work flawlessly with one caveat - the search functions using the remote are tedious in every case. Otherwise, they are great. The Home Screen lets you customize 10 - and only 10 - of your favorites. You can't change the "Featured Apps" so half the Home Screen is useless.
Screen Mirror: The BDP-S6700 uses Miracast so if you want to display your Android content you are in luck. It utilizes the Wi-Fi function of your phone to stream directly to the player. No lag. Sound is perfect. One flaw I noticed is that the wired connection to the BDP-S6700 is disabled while mirroring and doesn't automatically switch back when I'm done. Have to power cycle the unit every time. Only mildly annoying. As mention above, IOS AirPlay doesn't play. You can set up your IOS device as a DNLA server and play media that is physically on the device but you can't stream from the internet nor can you see the IOS device screen (think Facebook, emails, etc). Ironic, since Apple pioneered the technology but then they locked it all up with their proprietary Apple TV system. Oh well...
Remote: Small enough to easily fit into the cracks of your couch or recliner and lodge deep in any moving mechanisms. Just sayin'... I actually like the remote for it's simplicity. One of the better device remotes I've used. It is IR directional, so you have to point it at the player with a clear line of sight. You can also download an Android app and control the unit with your phone which is great for entering data in app search boxes.
Conclusion: If you just bought a shiny new 4K (UHD) display you are NOT going to like this unit so start shopping for a $500 UHD player. If you just want to stream internet then get a Roku, it's faster with more customization and 2000+ apps. If you still have HD equipment and want to play all those Blu-Ray/DVD/CD discs you've accumulated for the past 20 years, as well as stream the major providers (Netflix, Amazon, Vudu, Pandora, Hulu), then this unit is for you and it's a terrific value for the money.
It's not that it has problems with streaming (which it does) ... it's that it frequently locks up on DVDs and Blu-ray disks, or even just its home screen. We often have to unplug it to get it to respond, and it may still take 2-3 tries before it responds to the remote. (And you can't even press "play" without the remote.)
It's nice when it works, but it doesn't work nearly often enough.
1. Pandora forgets the user name/password after shut down of the unit.
2. YouTube search and settings get cleared after a few shutdowns. I don't like the audio "bloop" noise on YouTube when navigating, and out of the blue, it will start up again where I have to go back to the settings inside YouTube and shut off the noise. It also clears my search history on YouTube after a few uses. There is no apparent pattern on when it will do this.
3. (biggie) After playing Vudu or Amazon Prime at 24p, and exiting to the home screen, the 24p does not reset to 60p. This causes issues with playing YouTube after using Vudu or Amazon, because it will keep YouTube at 24p. Sounds good perhaps, but YouTube at 24p is choppy ( produces judder). The fix for that is to play Netflix at 24p, and then go to the BDP-S6700's homepage. For some reason exiting the Netflix app, resets to the default 60p, if you play a few seconds of video on Netflix first. You can also shut down the unit, and it seems that after a while of it being shut down, will reset to 60p when restarted. Not a quick shutdown and restart for some reason.
All in all, this is a better streaming player than the Roku 3 because of the better video, audio, and 24p support on Vudu, Amazon, and Netflix. Just wish they would fix the bugs.
Just FYI, I also have a BDP-S3700 and the 24p does reset properly on that unit. However, the BDP-S6700 has slightly better video and audio. And I had a BDP-S3500 and BDP-S6500 from last year, and those did not support 24p on Netflix, and had lock up problems, where I had to pull the cord to reset. This years models 3700/6700 are better in that respect, so far.
Top international reviews
Be aware that in Canada, Sony does not support Amazon Prime Video on this device, and support is non-committal on any possible firmware update including it.
1. great picture quality .
2. Streaming speed is good .
3. Quick startup .
4. If you have a 4k TV , the upscaling from FHD to 4k is really good .
1. Very light and plasticy feel .
2. Some noise while playing Bluray disc.
Over all 8/10.
I would really suggest this player .
Almost every time I go to use this player it is frozen and has to be unplugged.
I've tried everything and haven't been able to get rid of the freezing/locked up condition it enters all the time.
One other thing that stinks, we don't have access to Amazon Prime video on this unit in Canada.
The player itself is great and works well when it isn't frozen or locked up!
Fuera de eso reproduce bien los Bluray y DVD, pero para eso cualquier otro reproductor de menor precio.
Actualización: Bajo mi calificación debido a que cada vez que se enciende el equipo, se reinicia a configuración de fábrica, y hay que volver a conectar a la red, instalar las apps, iniciar sesión... es muy molesto.
I'm very disappointed with this Blu-Ray player because it doesn't have Amazon Video. Both Crutchfield.ca and amazon.ca say that it does have amazon video; as far as I can tell it doesn't. Amazon video was the primary reason why I bought this unit. I'm only giving it one star for those two reasons.
I chose this model mainly because it can also read SACDs, as I have a few of those that can't be played on PC. Not many options at this price.
This unit skips or drops out occasionally when playing new and mint SACDs. and blurays.
The blurays play fine on my external PC BD player, so I'm quite sure it's this player that's at fault.
Picture quality isfine, but haven't tried the 4K upconversion.
Should have bought an Oppo when I had the chance.
I have noticed the Blue tooth sound is out of phase with the picture slightly, plays perfectly on any modern digital TV with or without 3D
Very happy with the product
