This review is from: Sony WiFi Ready Blu-ray Player BDP-S370
Pros: Access to Netflix, Amzn VOD, Crackle, Pandora.
Quick Start-up even without activating the quick start-up feature that uses more power. Wonderful UI.
Easy software update that didn't require me to download content to my pc, then move it to a flash drive, then to the player. Instead, a prompt appeared when I booted one day and I clicked the software update icon. Nice and Simple.
Cons: Somewhat loud drive mechanism. Poor Netflix application that doesn't allow for browsing of titles outside of the queue. Requires a PIN on every Amzn VOD purchase.
Other Thoughts: Use it daily to watch content on Netflix and previously purchased episodes and movies from Amzn. The only trouble I've had with any online service were a couple interruptions on Crackle during episodes of some classic TV shows.
Have yet to try Wi-Fi, Hulu Plus, Slacker, playback of files from USB, nor Sony's Qriocity service.
Not sure why people complain about a lack of HDMI cable in the box. On Newegg and other online retailers, HDMI cables are available for 3-4 USD and often with free shipping.
This review is from: EVGA GeForce 6200 DirectX 9 256-A8-N401-LR 256MB 64-Bit DDR2 AGP 8X Video Card
Pros: Improved overall video performance.
Drivers were easily found online. Easy Install. Quick delivery.
Cons: Stuttering HD video on Vimeo.
Other Thoughts: After selecting AGP in the BIOS menu for Primary Video full Screen Hulu became watchable. Other video sources loaded with ease.
