Design is beautiful, small, sleek and sexy, quiet in operation and very slim. It weighs next to nothing. Connectivity is good - well, it's what you mostly need - but you won't find multi channel output for SACD if you have an older cinema amp.
The user menu is excellent and very intuitive, there are a range of adjustments but if you leave them all on auto the sony will do it all for you.
Playback of blu ray and DVD is superb, colours and picture rendition are the among the best, sound reproduction is crisp and powerful.
Connection to a wireless (or wired) network is very simple and went without any problems, the machine automatically updated quickly and without fault.
Once connected you have the best range of internet Smart TV applications you will find including iplayer and 5 on demand. There is free stuff from sony as well as premium content if you want to pay.
So far so good.
This machine claims to be able to read and play files either streamed from your pc or from an attached hard drive, the manual gives long lists of compatible files. However, in my experience I found that with the exception of MP4 it won't play a single video I have and insisted that there was either no playable file or that the data was corrupted. Funny that, because my son's sony PS3 can manage most of them. Not only did it decide it couldn't play files it constantly froze and would not respond to the remote. Only unplugging it worked. This was the case both from streaming from Pc and from an attached hard drive - it saw the drive but with the same results. Photo's were delivered slowly and it was hit and miss whether this worked, MP3's were more reliable but then that's not asking much in this day and age.
If you want an expensive blu ray player with all of the bells and whistles and with internet access that will probably bore you before too long then buy this one because it is a good player with the best range of internet goodies.
Just remember that there are cheaper models that will do that for you.
If additionally you want a network device that will reliably stream files thus allowing you access to your media remotely - forget it because it doesn't - I doubt there are many of these blu rays that can.
So what did I do? The 780 went back and I bought the cheaper 480 model. It's just as good a player, still has SACD capability, Ok it needs a wired connection but I still get the catch up TV, sony content and cute videos of cats and dogs from youtube BUT - the difference in price allowed me to buy a Western Digital TV live media player and that little gem plays everything I care to throw at it. Now I have the best of both worlds at no extra cost.
UPDATE: I have to say this and I need to correct myself: in my opinion, this is the best blue-ray player out there on the market (of course, I still kept its last update before the cinavia one). I managed to turn off the "auto update" and I have to admit it was my mistake not finding it from the first time. On the other hand, I don't know if it's just me, but I think Sony is on the right path. Again, I can't speak for the customers who have the latest updates, but at least from me my "no-updated" 780 deserves 5 stars.
