Really pleased with this Sony BDP-S580 Blu-ray player. Being the mid-range device it has dropped to a very good price point. I preferred this over the entry 380 model as it has built in WiFi. Although I plan to use this on a wired Ethernet connection it's good to have the wireless facility in case I want to revamp the setup or move it to another room. (The 380 requires a separate dongle purchase to enable WiFi - but this sticks crudely out of the back and could be prone to breaking.) I did not really see any benefit in going for the higher priced 780 model. All the Sx80 models are Sony's 2011 range of players.

My main reason for choosing this over other Blu-ray players was because of the interface. It uses the familiar XMB (cross menu bar) menu system as seen on the PS3 and PSP devices, so no new learning curve there. In terms of the actual Blu-ray disc playback I didn't worry, as at this price range all the main manufacturers probably produce a decent enough player that will give acceptable results in the home; so this player won me over on the other features.

The media streaming is perfect. It seems to stream all my files in varying formats including ones that used to show up on the PS3 as "unsupported data." I have a NAS drive (networked hard drive) to which I have copied my music and film collection to, and so far everything has streamed great, with no stuttering or freezing whatsoever even on the higher quality HD larger files. Also when streaming over my network it seems to start playing quicker (and buffering quicker) than the PS3 did.

Blu-ray playback is excellent - I am very impressed with the output onto a 37" screen and I have this coupled with a Sony surround speaker system again with excellent results and great quality.

I bought this player to go with a new TV a Samsung UE40D7000. Both are 3D capable but I doubt if I will use that very often, so I was more interested in the 2D ability of the equipment. The player quickly found my wi-fi and updated its software. The pictures from Blu-ray discs are as good as I have seen and the upscaled pictures from DVD's are very good, nearly on a par with HD. The X-bar menu is cluttered and Sony need a rethink on that, but in normal use you don't need it so it isn't a big issue. The only downside is that the digital audio out is only coaxial and I have had to buy a coaxial to optical converter as my cinema system only has optical inputs. I think that manufacturers should provide both options to ensure compatibility. That aside, I am very satisfied with this unit and it has many features that can be explored by the adventurous and some which are very useful like the BBC iPlayer.

Bought this player specifically to have the wi-fi function on my TV without any more boxes sitting underneath. I would absolutely recommend this unit, picture superb and no problem streaming from the internet, my connection is always around 7mB so HD on Iplayer is no problem. This is my second BDPS580, the first one automatically upgraded the software a short time after switch on and something happened to BBC Iplayer, it was exchanged and no problem since. After having a BDPS350 I was very pleasantly surprised with the speed of start up, warp speed by comparison.
All in all for me a good buy, the only reason for four stars are the fact that I had to have the unit exchanged and the fact that the Wi-Fi connection does not have channel 4 on demand or ITV player because of the lack of flash player which I understand cannot be installed.

This Blu-Ray has been brought for me for Xmas, but I of course had to test it beforehand!

What can I say it's amazing! Blu-Ray is great, Saving Private Ryan on Surround sound and Blu-Ray is easily the best test for it, great quality and clarity. I've always wondered what the benefit of HD is, it's not what you can see in the main part of the screen it's the peripheral vision where I notice it. Trees in the background etc look so much crisper and clearer.

Wifi was a doddle to set-up, I was streaming Top Gear off the iplayer within 10 Minutes of opening the box.

If you're debating the jump from Blu-Ray to DVD, I would certainly recommend it! All I'd recommend is make sure to get a decent HDMI lead like this one to get the most out of your Blu-Ray Player: 2 METER PRO GOLD RED (1.4a Version, 3D) HDMI TO HDMI CABLE WITH ETHERNET,COMPATIBLE WITH 1.4,1.3c,1.3b,1.3,1080P,PS3,XBOX 360,SKYHD,FREESAT,VIRGIN BOX,FULL HD LCD,PLASMA & LED TV's AND ALSO SUPPORTS 3D TVS.(2m/6.4ft)

Lovely machine. Very sleek and quick to respond. Very sharp picture on both blu-ray and dvd. Does what it says regarding the use of BBC i-player. Reviews I read before I bought it said it was noisy, but apart from a few clunks when loading disks it is very quiet.

I am a delighted customer!

This machine is a great buy. Had it set up, including Wi-Fi in about 20mins. Works flawlessly, streaming internet material in HD without problem. Picture first class and can not recommend highly enough.
