Useless garbage with horrible picture quality!!!

  • from Surrey, BC

Don't Buy This One

Bought this one on December 17, 2016. Stopped working on March 24, 2017. Best Buy return policy is 14 days. Guess I have a new door stop made by Sony.

Sony Bluray

The upscaling to near 4K on this unit is amazing. I enjoyed it so much that I purchased another for upstairs. Pro-Netflix works faster and is more responsive than my old Sony bluray. Con-I hate the "app" desktop lay out.

Looking for a versatile 4K player? Look elsewhere!

This player leaves much to be desired if you want to do anything other than play upscaled Blu-rays—which, I will acknowledge, it does do acceptably. However, it's all but useless if you want to play 4K content of any other kind. It won't stream Netflix in 4K, even though I can do this using Chromecast from my iPhone. It won't play 4K video files from a USB hard drive. It won't play high-quality Blu-ray rips from a hard drive properly either (the sound is slightly out of sync). And to top it all off, even the player's menus are only 1080p! The bottom line: if you're looking to replace a standard Blu-ray player with this one, don't bother. Spend the extra money and get a true 4K player, or look for a different one that allows you to take advantage of a wider variety of 4K content.

I would not buy

Since November of 2016 I have had to exchange 3 of these DVD Players. None of them have lasted over a month. The issue is that after a week or more of play they all start to skip, or hesitate both in the sound and picture. I say 3 strikes and you are done. However I would like to say that I got extremely good customer service from the Riocan Meadows Best Buy Store at 2040-38 ave NW in Edmonton. They were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. That is something that is getting harder and harder to find these days and is a real pleasure to see. I know where I will be going for future electronics.

Power off automatically

I thought I purchase a deflected unit, I return it and get a replacement, after I use it for 2 weeks, same problem happen again, I try to move to another TV or try another source / media. Two is enough.

doesn't function as advertised

I already had a DVD player, and order this to play blu-ray discs and to have a way to show the internet on a TV screen. Neither of those two functions worked, however, After connecting to my wireless network, the internet browser would not show anything, including basics like youtube - typing in url's led to no response. Then i tried 5 different blu-ray discs and none of them could be played in this so-called blu-ray disc player. It does play DVD's, but it regularly stalls in the middle of them, sometimes only for a few seconds, and sometimes it doesn't come back on at all without being turned on and off. Better to just buy a DVD player directly, as that is the only function that worked on this unit.

Sony products almost never disappoint

Great Blu-ray for a decent price. Easy setup and terrific picture quality.

  • from Calgary, AB

It's Ok, sort of.

The BDPS6500 chassis is very small, and light. If you press any of the front panel button the unit will slide away from you. It either has to be held, or otherwise secured. The tiny remote control is annoying. Buttons adjacent to the one intended to be pressed, are often mistakenly activated. YouTube very often closes, and an error, 'Cannot open this application because it is too large. The application has been terminated.' I have tried a variety of potential fixes and the problem persists. The possibility that clearing cache memory on the unit sounded like a potential resolution but it also was not successful. The unit hangs, and its AC pwr must be turned off\on to resolve. It plays bluray discs ok. It's easy to use. Has reasonably intuitive setup options.

Excellent dvd player and wifi

It took 30 seconds to set up the wifi for netflix and the web. Plays dvds with excellent clarity. Will probably get another for the living room tv.

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Great little player

I think for the price it's a great little player...nice compact size.

  • from canmore

Great little machine

Great picture, great sound, easy set up and it is dead silent - does everything I expected it to do.

  • from Nepean, ON

Staying with Sony

Purchased as replacement of my old Sony DVD player. Works as expected, no issues. I can play photos and video files from USB device, all Disc types, many free online services available:YouTube, DW, etc. Very compact design. Simple WiFi setup. Video formats are changing, but actually last 20+ years I use Sony players only. Thanks again!

  • from Toronto, ON

Excellent machine

I bought this to play old DVD and blue ray disk in my 4k tv and is very happy with the upscaling ability of this machine: the picture quality is just unbelievable compared to other players I have. Its upscaling ability is more impressive if watching youtube content through its wifi. Much better picture quality than whtat the 4k TV's upscaling can offer. The control is easy to use and the 3d playing is good although I have no comparisons with other 3d players. The only drawback so far is the built-in web browser is very slow and unusable.

  • from Oakville, ON

Nice but...

It's a nice up scaling player but I returned it because the 2016 model the 6700 has dual band wifi. I'll wait for Best Buy to stock it and then I'll purchase that one.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Great purchase...

Great picture and sound, very easy to install... the quality od the picture is amazing, particularly, with 3D movies... Overall, a very good purchase and value for your money...

  • from Wasaga Beach, ON

Good product

I have not used it much yet, but setup was easy and controls make sense. For the price this is a good buy.

  • from Toronto, ON

Very nice!

I Also tried to register online and website is down. However I understand that the warranty is not affected by not registering. - Very easy to set up (5 minutes max.) - Awesome picture quality! - built in Netflix - will also accept an external hard drive withe USB port in front. Liked it so much I bought another one!

  • from Kingston, ON

Good product, bad company.

The product set up easily and performed as expected. No glitches or problems feeding a Sony TV. The problems came when I tried to Register the product. The Sony Canada web site is broken and all attempts to get it fixed have failed. Still have not gotten the product Registered and it is looking like Sony doesn't care and/or has no intentions of honouring the warranty.

  • from Calgary, AB

Excellent great product

Great product easy to set up works great,Can't get over how small it is and compacked uses up less space.Over all should get a four star rating.

  • from Calgary, AB

Disappointing performance

I've never had good experience with any SONY products I'd purchased before, and same with this one. The first video I tried to play on this machine from my memory stick, the system froze and the player would respond to no buttons. I had to unplug the power in order to reboot the machine. The player wouldn't remember my play progress and would play from the beginning if I pressed the stop button. The worst part: the player has wifi but couldn't connect to YouTube!

  • from Deep River, Ontario

Audio Output

This unit only has a digital coaxial audio output. Would be much better if it came with an optical audio output. Other than that, very easy to setup.

Sony blueray BDPS6500

Good Player, but having issues attaching to Wifi, checked setting on router and confirmed that all is well. Password / DHCP all good, even tried assigning a static address, Keep getting error that it cannot connect.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great Value, Compact, Fast, easy to use

Great next generation player, extremely easy to set up. Fast operation. Easy quick start feature that I love. I am able to mirror my notebook now with not having to buy any add ons to allow me to to that. Really pleased to see Sony is back with high end product. again.

  • from Toronto, ON

Excellent Product

Nice to see Sony is back !! My old unit died. I dont have a 3 D Screen, but this Sony BDPS6500 was on sale for (the price), I wanted something a lot faster, better Wireless and with Upscaling. This is SO much faster switching between Netflix, TED TV and other APPS. the Mirroring of my notebooks is fast and was pretty easy to set up, so now I can do work on my computer and see it on my Big Screen. The quality of NetFlix is so much better than my old machine. In Short, it is simple, fast and easy to set up, I LOVE the fast boot feature to put in a DVD and instantly it is on the screen, instead of waiting, so Glad I took back the Samsung and got this, I was worried that Sony was on the way down, but really happy to see they have really put a lot of work into their Big Screens and the DVD players again.!! LOVE THIS UNIT !!!

Be sure to calibrate you TV for the input used by this dvd player. Very fast app launching and USB file reading.
