Default Going to buy s380

Would like to know if anyone has had bad experiences with this BD player before I buy it.

Hey bluboy, I picked up this same player a few weeks ago and I'm quite happy with it. My setup isn't the most extravagant, running an older bravia kdl40v3000 connected to HTCT100. Adding the s380 was a quick and painless experience and so far I'm in love with this player.

I picked up the 380 to replace a faulty ps3. I used the ps3 for bluray and media playback almost exclusively, and I really wanted to find a player that could handle advanced file playback as well as netflix. The s380 not only loads blu rays very quickly, compared to my ps3 at least, but the video codec support seems pretty extensive. I can play back .mkv files of 1080p content without any hiccups, and I can even cycle through subtitles and audio tracks which is quite nice. So far it's great. If you've had a sony player before I'd recommend this one. Just know in advance that while this player is marketed as being wifi ready it doesn't have wifi built in, but the rear ethernet jack works just fine for me. Best of luck!
