Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Nice unit! Easy to use and set up with a nice remote and instructions..
Sony BDP-S6700 - Send audio from the player to a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones (not included)
I've built a solid Blu-ray collection, so I'm glad to see Sony is still committed to making great disc players. The Sony BDP-S6700 won't play Ultra-HD 4K Blu-ray discs, but it will upconvert standard Blu-ray and DVD discs to near-4K quality for playback on your Ultra HD TV. And this versatile player also offers popular streaming video services and delivers serious picture detail to a 1080p screen.
If you're connecting to a home theater audio system, the BDP-S6700 supports high-resolution movie sound formats, like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS® HD. It will play CDs, SACDs, and music files from a thumb drive. Plus, it offers a wide variety of streaming audio options.
These days you can watch many of the best shows, movies, and even live sports on streaming services. And Sony has you covered. An extensive library of over 300 online apps includes Netflix®, Hulu®, Amazon Instant Video, and MLB.TV. Dual-band Wi-Fi gives you a strong, quick connection, and Sony's noise reduction technology improves the quality of your streamed videos. On top of that, Miracast™ technology lets you “mirror” what you see on your smartphone or tablet on your TV's big screen.
Send sound from the Sony BDP-S6700 to a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones (not included) for late night viewing.
If you're a Spotify® Premium subscriber, Spotify Connect lets you play your albums and playlists through your connected speakers. Or you can download Sony's free SongPAL™ app for iOS® or Android™. It gives you wireless access to the music stored on your phone, Pandora® Internet radio, and even music stored on a DLNA-connected server.
The BDP-6700's built-in Bluetooth lets you send the sound of your movies, shows, and other media to a pair of Bluetooth headphones. This helps with late night binge-watching. You can catch all the dialogue and hear all the loud, exciting sound effects without waking everyone up.
Wonderful for the price I paid.

Average Customer Review(s):
Nice unit! Easy to use and set up with a nice remote and instructions..
Dealing with Crutchfield has been a pleasant experience. I wish that I could say the same for the Sony BDP-6700 but I can't. My sole reason for purchasing this unit was for its "WiFi" capability, advertised as being able to "stream" media content such as Netflix and the like. Well, I spent well over three hours trying to get this Sony to connect to my wireless home network, but without success. This was without question entirely the fault of the Sony. I have a very reliable network with a half dozen other devices that connect and run without any difficulty. Just one week before the Sony attempt I connected a new device to my network without a hitch and in five minutes. Sony clearly spent inadequate design time in order to make this product "plug and play". Shame on them for destroying a once great name synonymous with high quality. Google this model and you'll see that hundreds of other BDP-6700 purchasers have had my same experience. I returned my unit to Crutchfield just days after receiving it.
Cons: Won't connect to your network due to poor manufacturing design.
I purchased this because of the 4K upscaling, and price. I have to say that I was very impressed with the picture and sound quality at first. Just shy of two months the picture started freezing and unit would lock up. The only remedy was to unplug it and start movie over. It would do this many times throughout trying to watch a movie. I've seen other reviews now with the same problem. Tried running update on unit, but didn't solve problem. Tried my old Samsung Blu-ray player, and it played fine. Very unfortunate, because when it worked, it was great. I expect more from Sony. Crutchfield was very helpful, and made the return process effortless.
Pros: Price, 4K upscaling Wi-Fi, Bluetooth.
Cons: Picture freezes, unit locks up.
Wonderful for the price I paid.
So far it is working great. Easy to connect and set up. All I had to do was swap out the old player, plug in the HDMI cable already attached to the TV, and plug it in. Setting up the WiFi was a snap. The remote works fine and it is a nice small size. I have not used the streaming function yet but there are many options to choose from and I look forward to using them. I would recommend this player -- lots of features and a great price.
Pros: Easy to use, WiFi was a snap to set up.
Cons: None so far that I have discovered.
Works as advertised so far.
Pros: Good picture
Cons: None so far
Using for a month now. Good unit for the price. A little noisy when playing disk. WIFI works well. Locked up one time but worked fine after unplugging/replug.
Great price easy to install fast delivery I can not ask for more
Remarkably easy set up and many extras preprogramed. Traditional Sony quality
Easy to set up. Lots of great features. WiFi and Bluetooth were the main features we were looking for in a DVD player. This Sony model has them both and plays DVD's with great quality. Hooked the Bluetooth to the sound bars with the click of the button on the main Sony controller in seconds. Would recommend this player to others.
This blu-ray player has been extremely reliable and having excellent picture quality. It easy to set up and use. It's compact size was a surprise, but doesn't reflect its capabilities. The quick load / start up for blu ray discs is a great feature.
Pros: Size, Picture Quality, Quick Blu Ray Start up
This unit is very temperamental. It's hard to know when all the apps are booted up. If I don't wait long enough the screen drops out when trying to load an app. Then when trying to play a program there are more drop outs. If I turn the player off and restart it sometimes that helps. DVDs sometimes freeze. Again sometimes a restart helps sometimes not. Going from a DVD to the home button usually requires another restart. I get a screen that looks like a 3d picture without the glasses. Crutchfield told me it was a streaming problem with other equipment. Didn't have a streaming problem with my old unit. Sorry this thing is either going back or in the trash. Apparently other reviews are much better. I wasn't so lucky.
Cons: Everything else
I bought this unit to go with a new Sony XBR 900E 55" TV. I have an older Sony Blue-ray that has performed flawlessly for 7 years so I thought I would stick with Sony. I was attracted by the low price and the features offered and after two weeks of use I am very pleased with it. It interfaces well with my TV and my Yamaha sound bar and everything is controlled by my main TV remote. When it arrived I was surprised by its small size. Crutchfield's advisors were very helpful in answering my questions that helped with my selection.
Pros: Great features for a low price. Compact size.
Cons: None so far
Crutchfield help, service and shipping all first rate. For my basic needs this unit is fine. Connection direct and straightforward to new Sony smart tv, and works well. For a basic guy, there is simply too much capability here. learning how to coordinate and operate multi function controls along with those of tv is a real learning process. As with most Sony instruction manuals, very little is spelled out. You must be intuitive. - Sony help line is a lifesaver.
Purchased this for the bedroom to give me access to DVDs, Netflix, and YouTube on the bedroom TV. Small and easy to setup. Was able to get Netflix and YouTube up quickly and attached to my accounts. I'm deducting a star because a couple of weeks after installing the unit YouTube stopped working. The splash screen comes up but no matter how long you wait it never brings up a list of videos. I did verify the latest firmware is installed.
Pros: Small. Easy setup.
Cons: YouTube App failed early in life.
First: Crutchfield's service was spot-on; I ordered it and it arrived today, one day earlier than stated. five hours of trying to pair Beats Studio 3 with it = dismal and frustrating failure. The sole reason for purchasing this unit is so that I can watch movies with headphones; I live in an apartment so I avoid creating noise.
Pros: Very compact size
Cons: I cannot get it to pair with my bluetooth devices, save for the very one I do not want to use; a Griffin Technology Twenty that controls my stereo speakers.Crutchfield response on 5/2/2018 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Ramon to help him further. We'll either help him get the bluetooth working the way it should, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.
Money well spent! This DVD Player should satisfy most, if not all, who are looking for an array of features found in more expensive players; not to mention such an easy set up!
Nice bluray player. Easy to connect to my router, smart functions work well.
This blue ray player is wonderful. The easy install and setup had me up and running in no time. It also prompted me to upgrade the firmware so all features worked right away. Thank you for the recommendation.
This BR player works fine for BR and DVD so far. I like the Smart TV stuff; Netflix worked OK and Prime streaming will be tried next. I'm hoping the CD and SACD will give me satisfaction in a mid-range system. This secondary system in the office doesn't have the super components (like the main HT system) and this Sony BR player fits in great with everything else.
Pros: Small but full of functions. DVD's look great on 2560 x 1440 monitor with the upconversion. SACD capability is not usually found at this price point.
I am very pleased with the BDP-S6700 it has performed very well. The previous DVD player I had for 17 years had run out of steam. This DVD player has played every DVD I have played. This was a great purchase.
Pros: Great DVD player.
Picture quality is wonderful!
The simple solution to Blu-ray quality video with upscaling ability. The SONY BDP-S6700 is not the top of the line Blu-Ray player, but it is a great way to add Blu-Ray capability to a "streaming video world." You may not use your existing Bly-Ray collection as much as you once did, but with this very economical Blu-Ray player you can add disc capability to your streaming video equipment without "breaking the bank." The set-up is quick and don't get me wrong, it is a great little player. Does everything I want AND more. It is like adding a "smart TV " to my system without buying a new Smart TV. I have purchased 2 of these over the past few months because it is value priced and does everything I want.
Pros: Economical, small in size, large in ability. Simple set-up.
Cons: Not true 4K, it is upscaling to 4K.
This is now our 2nd dvd of this model in our house. Wife wanted to watch Netflix and Hulu in our bedroom. With the built in WiFi hook up was a breeze and with the Bluetooth capability we can watch tv without disturbing the other while they sleep. This feature is great when your kids are watching tv in the living room and you want some quiet as well. I would suggest a pair of JBL's from Cruthfield of course.
Great picture. Easy setup. Very happy with this purchase!
Pros: Great picture. Fast loading. Quiet operation
Cons: No display
It arrived when expected, it works as expected and I'm very happy with the results.
Nice unit for the money. Simple setup
Pros: Small, supports many on line apps.
Cons: no display on unit other than a very small power led.
Just set it up today, and that was almost plug and play, with a few on-screen instructions to approve and selections to make. WIFI set up was instant with the wifi connect button on my router. It has a tiny footprint, front loads and with the right HDMI cable (Crutchfield had it), it talks to y Sony TV and external speakers automatically, while the TV remote can also run the DVD. Bravo too on the apps and internet/netflix/MLB streaming even without a hard-wired LAN connect. Crutchfield even matched the price on Amazon and let me use my Crutchfield bucks to help pay.
Pros: Easy set up, auto connect with Sony devices. Price.
Cons: Not yet
Great product looking forward in using it, thanks for all
Pros: Great piece in a small package
Small, compact, and does everything i need. Hope it last a long time. Easy to set up and even the kids can work it without problems.
I don't know how Sony gets away with calling this 4K, it is not. Best I've seen out of this unit is 1080p. Seems like false advertising. A good Sony 4K is the newer 800.
Cons: NOT 4K
Easy setup. No problems to note.
Pros: Fast delivery and easy set up.
The Sony s6700 biuray player works very well with my 4k tv, the processor upscale to near 4k quality, very happy with my purchase and the staff at crutchfield, awesome, educated, nice people!
It seems good for the money.
Pros: Price, size
Compact yet loaded with apps at a great price
A great value for the price.
This thing spends more time frozen than it does playing movies. Very disappointed that Sony would let this thing go into production
Cons:Crutchfield response on 10/18/2017 After receiving Andrew's feedback, we looked up his order and found that his Blu-ray player is still under warranty. While his order is beyond Crutchfield's 60-day return policy, he can contact Sony at 800-222-7669 for further information about the 1-year warranty on this item.
Awesome upgrade from my 6-year-old blu-ray player. Initially, I was put off by the footprint of the device -- it's just a square. But there is a lot of power under the hood, so to speak. The BDP-S6700 has improved processing and memory over the BDP-S480. It's quicker to start up and easily handles basic navigation through the on-screen options. Blu-ray discs play back flawlessly. The error correction has improved, and discs that generated errors on my old blu-ray playback without errors (or a greatly reduced incidence of errors) on this machine. This is really a streaming device that happens to play Blu-Ray and CD discs. If you are watching an online show, this player has the memory and processing to quickly rewind, stop and playback with ease.
Great picture and sound
Bought it to replace the BDP S6200 model which was acting strangely after couple of close lightening strikes. Very disappointed, picture is crisper on the internet stuff and normal DVDs but poor on reproduction of a Blu Ray disic, also sluggish responding to commands and freezes on occasion,.
Cons: poor performance
Excellent playback picture and audio, Easy to operate.
Upscales Blu-Ray quite nicely on 4K Ultra HD screen. Menu functions slowly, especially after initial start up.
Pros: Nice upscaling.
Cons: Slow operating system for menus.
Great little unit for the price, performs very well, haven't got to try out it's 3D capabilities yet since I don't have any 3D DVD media, the streaming works very well.
Pros: Fast DVD loading and startup.
Cons: None so far.
Seems to work well. The only downside that we've found so far is that isn't a web browser on the unit.
plug in turn on and does what I need.simple to usr
Pros: easy to use
Overall, I like it. I can see a definite improvement in picture quality. I like having the ability to install my own apps, such as Pandora. The problem I experience is when I move from Pandora back to Netflix. It's not seamless. I need to restart to unit. In the old days, we'd receive manuals. I'm sure I'll work it out some day, but for now it's too fussy. It's a lot of value for the price.
Pros: Quality. Price.
Cons: Fussy moving between apps.
Used this to up-grade a 10 DVR, blown-away by increased speed/performance. Box is tiny compared to old unit, discs boot-up 10x faster also. Have no need to use Netflix et al, can't comment. But picture quality exceeded expectations, performance outstanding, compact & priced great...completely satisfied. As always Crutchfield's service is excellent, ordered Friday had it Monday. Called w/ a question after product arrival, CS rep responded immediately clearing-up any confusion.
Pros: Ultra-compact. Fast. Excellent picture quality. Price cannot be beat.
Cons: Next step-up model comes w/ a HS HDMI cable. THIS model does not; and, while it states this it's also all-too-easy to overlook. Minor, but important also. Why in the world Crutchfield doesn't flag [this] at checkout is beyond me. Crutchfield unnecessarily missed a sale as I would've surely purchased one.
This blu ray player does a lot for its size, which is very small, and lived up to my expectations. All of the smart apps, netflix, youtube, etc..., was exactly what I needed to turn my projector essentially into a "smart" projector. The interface is very intuitive to use, and very well laid out. 3D works great out of the box, and the player has lots of settings to maximize picture quality right out of the box; One box to do it all!
Pros: - Compact Size - Functionality - 3D capabilities - Smart functions - Excellent User Interface!
Cons: - Lacked support for VUDU (high quality streaming service)
I primarily bought this player because my components are in a closed cabinet and I wanted something that didn't need an IR remote. The wifi remote app capability of this unit, plus good review and Sony brand sold me. Unfortunately There is no documentation for how to install the remote app. After a bunch of web searching, I found out it is called SideView. Easy to install/set up once I knew which app to use. Super easy setup out of the box and player works as expected Haven't streamed much with it, I have AppleTV for that, but it seems to work ok. SideView app gives only really basic functionality while playing a movie (start, stop, pause. No fast forward/rewind). I accidentally put two in my cart and didn't realize until I got my shipping confirmation. Crutchfield had my RMA to me before the units even arrived. Great service.
Pros: Easy setup Good value
Cons: Limited WiFi remote app functionality
This unit was exactly as described. Easy to set up and use. No complaints.
Pros: convenient and easy to use
I found the Sony BDP-S6700 extremely user friendly. It only took me 10 minutes to set it up for use. The picture and sound were very good and I liked the many features it had for apps, etc.
Good machine kinda slow to load netflix
Pros: Reliable,simple to use
Cons: Slow to load from internet
Quick response blu ray player. Very nice product
Great value for the money! Sets up easily and produces a dynamic picture. The 'apps' for Hulu, Netflix and other services are easily accessible and log in very quickly. The sleek, minimal design integrates nicely with the rest of my components. Highly recommended...you can never go wrong with Sony!
What can I say, it works well! The picture even with non Blue Ray discs is extremely clear. Also setting up the app stuff (kids set this up) was easy and I'm amazed how good Netflix looks. Glad I bought this and not a cheap department store player, again a big thanks to CJ for helping me put my system together.
I've been using the Sony BDP-S6700 for two weeks now and I'm impressed with the product. Setup was very easy and straight forward. I've been using a Sony Playstation 3 for a BluRay player for quite some time but it died and this was the replacement. It was very easy to move the cable to the new system. Quality seems to be just a bit better, but both were 1080p anyway. Don't have a 4k TV, so haven't tried the up-scaling feature. The Apps are sufficient for the services I use, mainly YouTube, Hulu, and Amazon. Very happy with this purchase.
Pros: Easy Setup Good Picture
Cons: Small Remote
Simple to use. Didn't even need directions since hand held device was standard.
Pros: Simple to use.
It came in just a few days. Great service as always with Crutchfield. The unit works great and is easy to use and set up. I had it running in about 5 minutes. Very satisfied. Have told others about it. Would definitely recommend.
Pros: Great picture Easy to use Easy to set up
Fairly inexpensive for unit that has Wi-Fi capability and can upscale on Blu-ray discs. The play back DVDs look very good. I am very pleased with the purchase.
Cons: Can't think of any right now.
Dear Crutchfield staff and management: I was very impressed with 3 outstanding points of care. The first was the ability to discuss in detail my present electronic issues and how to work through them with your knowledgeable staff. The second was how quickly the electronics arrived at my door step (two days) unprecedented!. And the third was the quality of the item received, excellent and with no regrets or buyers remorse. After talking with your staff I went back to your website and read your history and afterwards I felt a ping of joyful envy for the employees working there. You present a family atmosphere and not a corporate one and that is so refreshing now-a days. Thank you so much and when the time comes for my next purchase all I have to do is to look into my favorites bar to find you! With much appreciation from one of your many happy customers; Russell
Pros: great service with bountiful customer service!
I could not be happier with this player and with the fantastic service from Crutchfield!
Pros: Great features, easy-as-pie set up!
The picture quality is very good. However, the machine freezes up very often. You have to unplug and replug quite often. And then reconnect to the wireless network. This happens several times a day. I would not recommend this product in the long run. I watch a lot of apps on my television through this machine. And so I was depending on something more reliable in the way of keeping connected to the wireless network in my home.
Pros: Good picture quality
Cons: Freezing. Too many unplugged and replugged to make machine stop freezing. A lot of network connecting over and over again.Crutchfield response on 3/28/2017 Jerry, we're sorry you're having issues with your Blu-ray player. If the problem continues, please just reach out to our tech support team. They can help you solve the problem or set up a return within 60 days of purchase.
Quick startup with excellent resolution and color. Would like to have play and fast forword:rewind buttons on the player itself.
The I've gave it 5 star.it dose what it suppose to do on my sharp tv even though 720p every DVD I've put into my blue ray player it goes to 1080i this is an awesome DVD player, I would recommend this to anyone who wants to buy one. Frank ??
Pros: Awesome that's all I want say
Cons: So far I have none
Well worth the money.easy set up and easy to use.
Until I bought this new Sony BDP-S6700, my old Sony Blu-Ray player would not play some of the newer discs (even after upgrading the firmware). Note that my old player was at least 10 years old and did not have integral wireless internet. The new player was very easy to set up. It is compact, has a strong connection to the internet, and has a great picture quality. I am partial to Sony products and this one is a really good player for the price in my opinion.
Pros: Strong internet connection, Compact size, Great picture quality, Plays all Blu-Ray DVDs
Love it! The set up could not have been easier. After struggling for hours with my old Samsung attempting to connect to internet. The Sony was a breeze, soooo intuitive, set up to a minute tops! Love the picture quality and YOUTUBE!!!
Pros: Easy WiFi connection and great picture quality
Works as advertised
Sony products are my go to...this doesn't disappoint. A very inexpensive way to make your otherwise fine TV intelligent. Not 5 stars because of the remote entry system when signing in to apps. Setup is super easy !!! Thanks for the deal Crutchfield !!!
Pros: Easy move to smart TV Easy setup
Cons: Remote form entry
I have a lot of blu-rays I burned myself and my last player, a Samsung, had trouble playing many of them. This Sony has played everything I've thrown at it. The unit is small in size but big in features. Pretty fast start up and bitstreams HD Audio to my receiver.
Pros: Plays all the disks I've tried including inexpensive home burned blu-rays.
Cons: 4K upscaling instead of actual 4K output.
Everything I purchased recently has been great . The Crutchfield team was great too !
Start-up time for the blu-ray discs are much quicker than before. Was hoping to get 4K player, but Sony still not offering cost effective model. This unit will replace another older model, as an up grade in the near future. (Great staff at Crutchfield, make purchasing simple.)
Cons: Audio is slightly limited by digital outputs which will require me to purchase a DAC to use it with my older receiver.
Needed a DVD player that would hook up with my older Sony receiver that has no HDMI inputs. This hooked right up and works perfectly. I also like the USB slot and the Bluetooth. Very happy with this product.
Pros: I like the USB input and Bluetooth. Also the coaxial output comes in handy when hooking up to an older Sony receiver without HDMI.
Cons: None so far.
Very quite and fast, picture quality is perfect. Very satisfied
Pros: Loads fast Easy setup
Replacement for a Samsung POS that all of a sudden just stopped working (black screen using any input) Still not convinced that this idea of no information on the front of a unit and only onscreen is the right approach for any of these Blu-Ray players but that seems to be the approach. At least this unit (unlike the Samsung) has a power light (tiny green little thing) that at least lets you know whether you should see something on the screen or not. Regarding this unit, so far, so good. There is a setting in the options to allow fast start (boot?)) and I must say, it is great. (Less than 10 seconds) Everything else seems fine, plays Blu-ray discs, DVD, and CD with no problem. I don't use the streaming features (Have a Roku and a Kodi box) but I have it hooked up to my internet for updates and it seems to work fine. The remote is tiny but perfect and has all the options one needs in a small unit. I have a Sony flatscreen and that remote (after a quick programming) manages the BDP player fine also.
Pros: Small footprint Runs cool to touch wireless and wired connectivity fast-boot option small power light on front of unit
Cons: Information is only available on screen (No information presented on unit)
Some issues getting device to wake up to set up now after changing to quick start up no more issue. Works as it should, improved picture quality as expected.
Pros: Upscale picture quality
Needed to replace my 5 y.o. Oppo 93 because the laser kept freezing, apparently common per online complaints. Oppo wanted too much money plus elaborate shipping to fix it. Call me old-fashioned, but a bluray at this price should function for a decade or more, & a common glitch should be fixed for free. Anyway...My new Sony has identical picture quality and bluray sound. I have not yet tried it w/Pandora. The Oppo had a great DAC which made Pandora streaming above average. Possible update. Some of the lower priced Sonys seem to be identical, except (I mean EXCEPT) they do not play SACDs. This does, which is important if you know that SACDs are superior to most downloads. Also plays bluray Audio discs, a great format strangled at birth, though Neil Young released Americana in it, & the Norwegian classical label 2L has several titles. But SACD is just as good. Medium-sized negative: As others have noted, no front plate info, no track #, no timing, no nothing. If you listen to Vivaldi or Telemann concertii, which do kind of sound the same, better keep your watch handy. Or keep your tv monitor on just to listen to music. This is not a great time to upgrade to UHD. You would need a new tv, new speakers, new receiver, and a new bluray player. And there are only about 120 UHD blurays available. And while netflix & youtube say they have 4K, it all hangs on their bandwidth, which is not adequate unless you live in Japan. So this Sony is ok until UHD settles down.
Excellent job, does exactly what is was made to do. Great picture quality even with DVD's. There are no counters or other displays on the player. to check time played or time remaining you must use the remote control.
Very pleased with the Sony BDP-6700 and with the product selection assistance from Mick at Crutchfield. I was looking for advice on purchasing a 4K upscaling player and was choosing between the Sony and Samsung players. I am an early adopter of most video equipment and can't believe the value of this player compared to what I paid for my first DVD player (much smaller in size and price.) I replaced an older Sony Blu-ray player which now serves in our guest room. As others have noted, setup is very quick and easy (HDMI directly to Denon AVR.) The wifi is much easier to setup, faster and I find the apps (primarily Amazon and Netflix) easier to access than on my Samsung 4K television. Maybe it's my imagination, but I think the upscaling does make my Blu-ray discs look much better. Overall, very pleased!
Pros: Great picture Fast, easy to setup WIFI Compact size
Cons: None noted
Product was easy to set up. As I have an older receiver, I do not use it as the controller for my surround system, therefore I needed an RCA cable to connect the sound from the DVR directly to my receiver. This is not included. I would also recommend the high speed HDMI cables when hooking to a 4K TV, which I have. These are also not included.
This is a wonderful unit that does everything well at a great price. I love the fact that can play my SACDs. The only downside which is why I didn't give this unit five stars is that there is no display on the unit itself ( the unit only displays on your TV screen).
Pros: Easy setup, great picture, and one of a few players that can play a SACD
Cons: No display on front of unit
This unit works great. Has many apps for viewing online.
Pros: Has a great resolution and good selection of apps.
Cons: Wish it was capable of Bitstream for dolby atmos
I am very pleased with all aspects of the bluray player, especially its size and simplicity. The ease with which the setup is performed is outstanding. I am very happy with the choice.
Very good player, HD picture quality. It does not have an optical output , if Sony add an toslink optical output I will said that excellence player.
Pros: Good price, good player, good picture quality
Cons: No toslink optical output
Picture quality is good, but even with a new Sony 55" 4k (XBR-55X850D) and checking all menu / setup selections on both units, still not getting anything over 1080p. Passing HDMI thru a Pioneer Elite SC-97, which outputs Comcast Cable Box input (nearly or all channels) at 4k (not a fan of Comcast, so that surprised me) - so apparently not a limitation imposed by the Surround Receiver. What am I missing?? Plan on playing with more, maybe trying a different HDMI Cable out of BDP-S6700 and/or re-checking all menu options. Other issue, happens every single time I play a CDR, BDP-S6700 locks-up when done playing disc, even power does not work, have to unplug AC power from player to resume any kind of operation. All things considered, I am not thrilled with unit.
Pros: Plays Blu-Ray discs
Cons: No 4k, Locks-Up Consistently, no display, limited connections
At times the unit needs to be unplugged to reset the internet app screen. Not sure why this is the case. I am hoping a future firmware download corrects the problem.
Pros: Lots of features
Cons: Inconsistent operation
Sony does a great job with Blu-ray players. The BDP-S6700 is a very compact unit, was extremely easy to set up, connected to my wi-fi immediately and was very intuitive to use. I bought it more for the streaming capability rather than to watch actual blu-ray disks and I'm very happy with the way the streaming works. So far so good! Highly recommended.
nice unit, small and compact, just using it as a basic blu -ray player. picture is fine , hooked it up in minutes and started watching a movie. just what I was looking for. and the crutchfield guy was very helpful, gave me honest advice. thanks TIM
Pros: easy set up , small remote, Iam happy
Cons: so far so good
Great little device. Produces excellent picture quality, streams all of my apps well, and is easy to set up. Well worth the price.
Connection to local WiFi and internet was very simple and easy. Disappointed in that there is not an optical digital connection for audio.
Sony BDP-S6700 is a good all around Blu-ray/dvd player. However things are missing for me thus the 4 stars. Player does not have a window to view time of viewing media, media type, nor starts video at last viewed. My older player has these and I liked that very much. Being Sony it was easy to install, update software, and connect to my Sony Smart TV so all is well in my entertainment world. Bottom line a little pricey for what you get since I have a smart tv with the internet connections and Goggle Play aps.
Pros: Easy connect and interaction to Smart TV. 4k media ready whenever that happens. Plays MP3 on media stick.
Cons: Price for what you get already having a Smart TV so internet apps not necessary.
I purchased this product for my wife. I set it up before letting her use it. For the money it is very simple DVD player to get use to. I showed her the basic operations and she was able to catch on quickly for someone who hates new equipment. I showed her how to use the streaming aspect which I thought worked very well. She has had no complaints and uses it without assistance. A very good simple piece of equipment for those wo are afraid of electronics.
Pros: Easy to use unit.
Cons: None found yet compared with the price of the unit.
A lot of stuff in a small package. Turns any TV smart. Good Wifi antenna internal.
Picture and sound are great. Streaming works well. Wifi is stable. Overall no complaints. I see no reason to spend more on a blue ray player.
Pros: Every work great product for the price
Very easy to instal
Pros: Very easy to instal
I am very pleased with my purchase so much so I ordered another to replace a year old Panasonic.
Pros: Small, Fast, Easy to use. Can't comment on 4K as I am not there yet.
Cons: Short of output options.
Had this for a few weeks now, works just fine. There is nothing to it -- it's small and it plays DVDs and Blue Rays. Am not able to try out the 4K upscaling because, wait for it, I don't have a 4k TV. Only reason for 4 stars is do to the lack of connectivity/output options, but I knew that going in. As long as this lasts a couple years I will consider it a solid purchase.
Pros: Small and it works
Cons: Lack of connectivity options
