Great player for this price.

Experience of using: Few months

Pros: Attractive design, Easy to set up, Lightweight, Numerous apps, Quick response time.

We own Panasonic DLP television that doesn't have HDMI connections, but come with a component video input. This is the main reason why we chose Sony player BDP-S580, because we wanted to have a Netflix video streaming app. However the video quality through component-video connection is average, but we can live with that, until we upgrade our tv. Besides we have only DVD discs in our home collection and I can hardly judge about the quality of blu-ray movies and general playback.

In other reviews I read about video streaming drop-out, but I didn't pay attention to that at all. Well, as it turned out, I had to. Our router is on the same level with the player and it is rather close to it. Due to these reasons I believed that we wouldn't experience any problems with online streaming, but still there was a drop-out, after several hours of watching Netflix. However this happened only once and lasted for about 20 seconds. Hope that the problem won't repeat.

Concerning the rest, this player is lightweight, thin, stylish and really nice-looking. We are happy with the buy.
