Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Wonderful product and the customer service from crutchfield is the best out there.
Pop in a Blu-ray or DVD disc, enjoy streaming video and music services, or play PS3 games — all with the Sony BDP-S3700.
For my money, a new Blu-ray player is one of the best values in home entertainment, and the Sony BDP-S3700 proves why. This player offers many of the same video services that make similar-priced streaming sticks and set-top boxes all the rage — including Netflix®, Amazon Instant Video, and MLB.TV. Mulitiple built-in Wi-Fi antennas help ensure smooth streaming for your movies, shows, and live sports. Plus, the 'S3700 can also play Blu-ray and DVD discs from Redbox or your own library, delivering clear, detailed picture quality.
These days we watch and enjoy a lot of content on our phone — YouTube™ clips, Vine and Instagram videos, pictures of friends and family. Guess what? All that stuff plays well on the big screen, too. Using Miracast™ technology, the BDP-S3700 lets you wirelessly “push” anything you see on your smartphone or tablet onto your TV.

Wonderful product and the customer service from crutchfield is the best out there.
We also had an issue with a DVD getting stuck in the machine the first day, we fixed it, now it works properly. good picture, good sound, haven't tried the wireless or the apps yet. Set up instructions were cryptic, setup turned out to be simple, but this player model doesn't come with an HDMI cable, so I ordered the cable from from a different online retailer. I really try to avoid using that retailer but I needed the cable. In the future I would like to have everything I need to set up in the box when I order the device.
Worked for about two DVDs. On the third one it wouldn't start and not eject. After unplugging and replugging several times was able to finish watching that DVD. Playing couple more Netflix DVDs, then did the same thing. I finally had to disassemble it to recover the DVD. Maybe just one faulty unit and will get instructions from Crutchfield.
Pros: Small and good picture when it works
Cons: Didn't last long before it started failing and not releasing DVDs.
Bought the wireless version to go with two previous wired units. Had to rearrange Airport Express units in the house so that the Sony BDP-S3700 was close to one of them. Otherwise it works well.
Pros: Nice features, similar to wired unit.
Cons: Weaker than expected wireless. Needs to be located close to router.
This Sony Blu-Ray player is amazing! Easy setup which is nice and compact enough to where it doesn't take up too much space in the entertainment center. It also comes with wifi and ethernet connections which is nice.
Pros: Compact, has wifi and ethernet connection, and easy to setup.
The S3700 is exactly what I needed & bought it for while being competitively priced against the big box stores. The Blu-Ray shipped very well protected & arrived in perfect condition.
This was great for our bonus room where we exercise. Easy setup, connected to our wireless WIFI with no problems. Great pricing and fast delivery. The people there are very helpful and polite.
great - easy install and works fine
Pros: installation was a piece of cake - working fine
Compact,easy to install, and priced perfectly Great buy from Crutchfield
Bought the unit to primarily smarten my dumb TV. Already being a subscriber to Netflix the Sony BDP-S3700 with Wireless LAN remote control has a quick access button to Netflix, Home and Favorites. Easy plug and play connection. Remote also controls the TV on-off, volume and input access. Very satisfied with Crutchfield considering price, free shipping and delivery time. Free Apps such as CRACKLE, TUBI TV, YOU TUBE and VUDU are readily accessed.
Pros: Small size, easy setup and reasonably priced.
I am very pleased with my new Sony BDP-S3700. Setup was a breeze; the device detected our WiFi network and connected immediately. Playback of a Blu-Ray disc at 1080p and an Amazon Prime video were flawless. The box is tiny and very light weight but there is very little disc playback noise. On-screen controls are clear. Loading of a disc for playback isn't instantaneous, but it is faster than the 2009-era expensive player it replaced. I had an HDMI cable so I was happy this device was sold without one. Price point for a "smart" player was a bargain. I probably won't upgrade TV to 4K for several years so the BDP-3700 was perfect for our needs. Service and shipping from Crutchfield was excellent.
Pros: Great value. Fast setup. Flawless playback of Blu-Ray disc and network videos. Small footprint.
Cons: None for our system. Does not support 4K and you will need to provide an HDMI cable.
Product+price is good.
The DVD / CD player produces a beautiful picture on our big screen TV. We have some older DVD discs that are not blue ray and the upgrade ability of the player is amazing. Easy to hook up.
Works great. Excellent for the price.
This little tyke is GREAT! Small, effective, great pictures, easy to set up.. Along with great Crutchfield service, a wonderful buy
I've had this unit about 2 weeks. It is very small. I didn't realize that. It looks a little funny in the cabinet with the rest of the media equipment. I thought it would have more relevant apps for streaming videos. Most of the apps I've never heard of. It does have a few basic apps like Netflix. The picture is good. Upscaling from DVD is good. I got this on sale and I'll keep it until I upgrade the TV to 4k at which time I'll probably buy a UHD player.
A bargain for the price. Works really well and it is a TINY Blue Ray player.
Got what I expected. SMALL unit and fair price
Great price and easy to set up with Wi-Fi! Have not used the apps!
Pros: Great price and easy to hook up!
The Sony BDP-S3700 is a tiny little machine (my first cd player was as large as my reciever) that is jam packed with apps and stations to keep any A?V Buff satisfied. Of course it has the option to go wireless and slide right into my household Wifi , I am old Scool enough to like my cabels. I set it up with the low power option which means I have to wait a bit for it to warm up from the foff position, but it saves me electricity and every cent counts. The set-up was childishly easy took 3-4 min and I was ready to startt playing HD, Blu-Ray. of just listen to sme of my favorite CD's. and of course the Streaming OMG so many choices everything from Nintendo to Amazon Prime and everything in between . There were also about ten music choices including siris and pandora so it covers the gambit there also. For the price tis unit can not be beat, especially as it a Sony
Fast shipping. Easy to use and good image. Still can't use to streaming because I live in Puerto Rico and after Hurricane Maria we are still without wifi in our house. But we rent some blue rays and works excellently.
This DVD player works well, plays Blu-ray, is compact, and connects to the internet over WiFi. The picture quality is excellent. We've had no problems.
Pros: Compact, attractive, easy-to-use, plays Blu-ray, connects to internet over WiFi
excellent...just what we wanted at a great price
I only need this unit to play older DVDs and BluRays (I do not stream videos). So far, it's fit the bill quite nicely. BluRay picture quality & sound are excellent and the upconversion of DVDs to near-HD quality seems quite good also. It seems to be a very good basic player - with luck it'll last a long time also.
Pros: easy set-up, low cost, very good picture & sound
Cons: small keys on remote
Excellent unit. Quick set-up and very small. Love it.
Eat install and internet setup.
Works great as expected by Sony.
Works like a charm with my new Sony 4K TV. Very easy set up.
Pros: Easy set-up Works well
Great little Blue ray player easy to use and overall quality is good. Great price and way to play your almost outdated Blue ray discs. The small footprint allows it to be placed almost anywhere. At this Price you can't go wrong.
Pros: Great price point with easy setup and picture quality
Cons: None as of yet
This is my second Sony Blu-Ray player, and I must confess that I got this one because it has the same user interface as the previous model, which I'm keeping, BTW. The S3700 is very small, but it is also very easy to use via the remote (minor ding here: no backlight). It's got all the online services I subscribe to, and both online and Blu-Ray image quality are excellent at 1080p. I use a projector on a large (110-inch) screen, so flaws would be easy to spot. But there really aren't any. It would be hard to imagine, in fact, better image quality at any price. The only potential issue is in overall quality - the tray doesn't seem all that sturdy, and at least one DVD makes a lot of noise when spinning, although that may be a problem with the disc itself, and not the player. I've got my fingers crossed, anyway, and so far I'm pleased - especially at the price paid. Crutchfield did their usual fine job of getting it here quickly, BTW - always a pleasure doing business with them.
Pros: Small, inexpensive, excellent image quality
Cons: Remote lacks backlight, tray feels a bit cheap
This is a great player and a terrific value. Its small footprint allows placement in areas like bedroom furniture. It has all that I need like WiFi, Apps, and BlueRay, and a Sony to boot. I have purchased 3 of these players and scattered about my house. A perfect fit for non smart HD TV's with HDMI inputs.
Pros: Well featured, small footprint, value, Somy
So far BDP-3700 is playing as advertise . Nothing fancy just what I wanted great picture , easy to set -up and operate . If you are looking for a Blu-ray with basic app's and just play your DVD's and CD's this the product . For the money can't be beat.
awesome value, easy to set up & use. Good sound & picture. &
Pros: fast load & plays discs my older Pioneer would not
Works as expected. Sony quality ... not an extremely high end product, but gets the job done.
Pros: Plays Blurays, DVDs and other video formats with out issue Nice upscaling on DVDs Built in apps are a bonus.
Cons: None yet
It is working as advertised. Great picture to TV and streams are clear. If needed would buy another one.
We bought two of these blue ray players. We've only had them a couple of weeks but they're working fine. I like the small size and the ease of installation. We're able to get Netflix, Prime, YouTube etc., a big plus. We've always been happy with Crutchfield and our Sony products.
Pros: Small, simple, functional, offers apps we want (Netflix, Prime)
Cons: None so far
Works well. Easy to attach to television. Remote easy and intuitive to operate. Would recommend to anyone.
Everything on this player works great. DVD, Blue-Ray, WiFi, with my 10+ year old Sony Bravia LCD. The only problem is it won't play DVDs I converted from VCR tapes using my ancient 20+ year old Go Video VCR-DVD recorder. Got this Sony DVD-BlueRay-WiFi machine from Crutchfield this month. Recommended.
Pros: Works very well
The player works great. Better picture than the previous DVD Player. Delivery was on time. I also called support for an additional cable and was given good advice on how to hook it up to my sound system.
Lost remote. Doesn't work without one. Cant find one to buy.

Bought on recommendation of Crutchfield rep, good call! User friendly, not too complicated. Easy to set up. It's replacing a Samsung that was always frustrating to use (and wouldn't load my streaming service). Takes up practically no space. I'm enjoying using it and didn't even need help getting it to work. Score!
Pros: Small, takes up little space Easy to set up Easy to use
Cons: Haven't found one yet
Love this player. It's a fantastic player for the money. And physically small. I was replacing a BDP-360 that got a 'thermal' and was quite pleased by the price and performance. The only thing that is a bit disconcerting is the fact that it's a dark front. No indicators. Nothing to really let you know it's on. But hey, it works great.
Pros: Small. VERY Inexpensive. Plays everything I throw at it.
Cons: Dark, no real indicators of it doing anything. Wish the remote would integrate with the Sony AV system for volume control and other functions
This is great. Compact, wifi, does the job nicely. Even better, it's truly portable. And the remote is bigger than a credit card!
Plays blu ray and CDs for for fair price.
Pros: Plays blu ray disk
Cons: None found yet
Ordered my Sony BDP-S3700 DVD Blu-Ray player from Crutchfield and I got it in 2 days, perfect condition and ready to use. It was easy to connect and set up to my current system and I began using it almost immediately. It works great and would recommend it to others.
Pros: Fast shipping from Crutchfield. Easy to set up and use
Don't buy the Sony BDP-3700! And, based on problems reported in Sony's on-line "community" with other BDP-37xx models, I'd stay away from those as well. I bought two of these units in early 2016. One failed within warranty - Sony honored the warranty and fixed it. Second one failed just barely outside of warranty, and they won't replace it. I won't spend a cent on fixing a clearly poorly made product.
Small in size but big in features. Easy set up & love the wireless wifi.
Satisfactory as a DVD player (have no Blu-rays to try) -- equal to a 12 yr. old Panasonic, but painfully slow to "boot". As an out-of-date 20-yr. career IT person heavily involved with data communications, I consider the network interface to be seriously flawed from a privacy/security perspective. Since I currently do not have an Internet speed to support streaming, I do not plan on using this feature. (!) Connectivity can not be turned off/on as you might do with a PC (delete the MAC address from your router, or do a Reset to Default Factory Settings to turn off); (2) The startup screen contains over 2 dozen "Favorite Apps", none of which can be deleted (each a possible hacking portal?); (3) p. 33 of the Operating Instructions seem to imply the player could change network settings of the router when using WPS for setup (sounds a bit like the software problem with PCs until the late 1990s).
Pros: USB nice to view pictures. (Mixed results for .avi video: camera source OK, but commercially converted 8mm not so - codex problem?). Controller can also control (Toshiba) TV.
Cons: Slow "booting". Network connection implementation.
Instruction manual is about like most of those I read for players which meant there is a LITTLE information lacking. However, it was very easy just using eyes to connect and it works just great. Still got to go through all of the on-screen prompts to fine-tune it if you use it for internet etc.
Cons: Printed manual short on info. but you can get around it.
Enjoying this Blu-ray / DVD player. Quality device with wi-fi that makes my non-smart TV a smart one. Remote has programable TV / Input buttons to minimize remotes while using it. Dimensions are small so it takes up little space. Less expensive units exist, but the added wi-fi was worth the upgrade
Pros: Dimensions Wi-Fi capability Remote
Get to use Youtube.......awsome!!!!
Needed a blueray player always use Sony. Works great very happy!
Pros: Great sound and picture
I've only had this machine for a few weeks, but I have used it a lot, and in every way I anticipate using. It's small and squarish. I hooked it up, connected to wireless easy, and performed an update before using. The Netflix interface is much faster than my 2013 model. I run the sound into a receiver and the hdmi into a tv. I play a variety of dvds and bluray discs, along with streaming Netflix. The remote is easy to use. Nice to purchase something that does exactly what it claims to do. 5 stars because I have found no problems. (Crutchfield packing was top-notch, much better than Amazon)
Pros: Works as advertised
Cons: None so far
Bought to replace an older Samsung Blu-ray player that had multiple skipping problems. So far, so good with the Sony, which is not only smaller but offers more streaming perks.
5 stars!! This product gets 5 Stars..well packaged upon arrival, ease of set up and slim profile!
item is easy to install and set up. good quality and fine picture on tv.
Pros: good price . hooked to older set for nextflix, etc . control has just enough keys to work without needing a manual to run it. and still very functional.
Works great for accessing Netflix and other apps on an older tv. Haven't tried a DVD in it yet.
Pros: I bought this so that I could access various apps like Netflix and Pandora. Works great
Cons: I haven't played a DVD in it yet, so can't really comment on it.
When it comes to home electronics I am " Joe Dope " but this little Sony unit was very compact, easy to find a good spot with all the other things such as cable box, modern, sound bar,ect. The set up was extremely easy. Plug in the power source, run the h.d.m.i. cable to the t.v. and your done. Programing the unit to the t.v. was a piece of cake. ( it might have helped that I happen to have a Sony t.v . but I'm sure it would be just as easy). So, in closing if you are looking for a nice little, compact blue ray player, don't pass this one up.
Excellent value for the cost. YouTube app quick and responsive. Have played DVD, Blu Ray & Cd all great sound and picture. Coaxial audio fits onto my amp. Easy setup.
Pros: value to cost, apps, digital audio to amp, simple to use, decent responce times,
Cons: On/Off light could be larger.
got this for my daughter for her room. shes a Netflix and hulu girl. loves it.
Pros: good player for the money
Great little device. Purchased to primarily stream online media to an older HD TV and it works great!
Great player. Easy to set up and works very well
Pros: Small, plays well and easy to set up
see pros below
Pros: dvd works very well--easy to set up and great -picture--people at Crutchfield were very nice
We got the Sony Blue-ray player and have been using it about a month now. It was amazingly easy to set-up. I don't know the technical terms, but it seems to be able to pull the contents of Netflix and other programs from the internet much faster than out previous model, causing far less interruptions. It does take more time to boot up when we first turn it on, but that's not a huge problem. We have not played a DVD on it yet but so far we do like the player.
Pros: Set-up is amazingly quick and easy. Streaming is powerful so less interruptions in programming.
Cons: takes longer than expected to initially boot-up.
This player rocks. Loads very quickly, and this was an "open" model. Good news is everything was still wrapped up brand spanking new.... probably doesn't happen 100% of the time but hey it did for me!
Pros: Great picture, loads quick,
Cons: Menus are a little confusing
This player replaced an older Samsung Blu-ray and there is no comparison in picture quality, audio, or available apps. The Sony is really great! The video upconversion is a real plus for our DVD collection of older titles. Set up was very easy (using ethernet) and the multi-brand remote works fine with our Samsung TV.
Pros: Picture, audio, physical size, PRICE
Very surprised that a player at this price performs so well. Even though the remote is kind of small it mates well with my Sony TV for volume, on/off and input. Crutchfield is a great store.
Pros: Great picture, easy to set up.
Easy to install and operate. Picture quality very good.
Pros: Built-in Wi-Fi; controller easy to use; very reasonable price
Easy to set up and use. A lot of applications loaded, i.e. Netfilx, Crackle, YouTube. Highly recommend it.
Out of the box worked very well. Shipped quick and arrived in good condition
This is a solid unit. I now own two of them. It's probably not the model that you'll buy for your home theater setup, but for the money, it's a great option for less demanding needs. The built-in WiFi is a great feature, and the setup was painless.
Pros: Great bang for the buck
Cons: There are better options (if you are willing to spend a lot more money)
Never had a blue ray player. After reading reviews, chose this one. Happy we did. Works excellently. Have not played any blue ray discs yet, but the dvds we have watched have been up-converted and they look so much better than when played through just a dvd player. Set up was easy. Highly recommend.
Great picture quality, better than Roku or Firetv on same streaming apps. However very few useful steaming apps, also very plain looking device if appearance is a concern.
Pros: Picture quality
Cons: Plain looking, limited apps
Very happy with this Dvd/internet player. Installation and connection was super easy, quality of images impeccable and it's very compact thus takes up very little space.
Great little product, especially for its price. Video is clear and sharp and the sound is the same. I would highly recommend this for the casual user.
I bought this blu-ray player to replace a Samsung that was outdated and not working properly. I am happy with this player as it has Netflix capabilities which is the main feature I wanted.
Pros: Small Numerous features
We have had this for a month now. It's the perfect Blueray player for our basic needs.
Pros: Easy and quick set up
This product gave me problems from the day I received it. The unit won't power on unless you disconnect & reconnect the power supply or the hdmi cable. It is also very noisy when in operation. Apparently even if you receive a defective product, you have to pay a $10 return fee to exchange it or get a refund. So I guess I will continue to plug & unplug the power to use this product.
Cons: Product Quality & Return Policy.Crutchfield response on 2/6/2017 Chris, we're sorry that the Blu-ray player didn't work. We have set up a return and waived the return shipping fee.
Very nice machine! Small and compact but does everything it needs to do. Is excellent at playing older, damaged discs. I have an old copy of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (the BBC version) that would not play under any circumstances on my old player; it plays flawlessly on the Sony. Excellent Value!
Pros: Crisp, Clear Picture Great Sound Absolutely simple to set up and use
Great Blu-ray player. The only negative is there is no internet browser.
This Blue-Ray player was perhaps the easiest component to hookup that I have ever purchased. It merged seamlessly with my 4K Samsung TV and and my wireless internet connection. The picture was up-converted about as clearly as one could ask, and the small footprint took up a minimal amount of space in the TV stand.
Pros: Ease of installation; excellent picture; small footprint.
Cons: Nothing worth mentioning.
A small compact DVD player with excellent wireless capability. Nice way to make a non smart TV smart as well as gaining a DVD player. Priced right. Easy installation by following prompts. Updates software through internet connection when needed to keep product current. Would be nice if remote was larger.
Pros: Wireless capability.
Cons: Small size remote control
Great little unit! Though we were mocked by our children for wanting to keep the ability to play DVDs (old school, we know!), this unit answers that need, allows us to play our CDs (for which we were also mocked), AND replaced our Roku unit with all the streaming access we need. It was super easy to set up and is easy to use. And even better was the service we got from Crutchfield; we just told them what we wanted to do and what our budget was, and they gave us great options -- and even remembered to add cables to the cart, which we would not have thought of. Can't say enough about this company; they were a great find!
Poor resolution, frequent buffering, cheap feel-- isn't that enough?
Cons: See aboveCrutchfield response on 1/18/2017 Richard contacted us and set up a return for this item. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days.
Fast startup, convenient icons and great picture. Have not found any negative aspects yet.
Pros: Small footprint, multiple connections,
This is a very good Bluray disk player. I also purchased this product for use as a DLNA media player over my WiFi network. I only was successful making low speed network connections and for HD content it does not reliably produce high quality playback. Somewhat disappointed.
Pros: Very good bluray disk player
Cons: Poor WiFi connections result in poor DLNA media playback
Just what I wanted. Compact size along with wifi apps which to me is a bonus Nice unit
This product was very easy to install and operate. I am very happy with the product.
Pros: Easy installation.
Just received the unit in the last 30 days. Plays DVD's fine with an older Samsung flat screen tv. This tv was not a "smart tv, so am using the Sony unit to access Netflix and other web content. It works real well for this purpose also.
I'm glad I didn't pay that much. It's very slow. The built in apps are super slow to respond and the unit randomly freezes and the only way to get it going again is to unplug it. The blueray portion is OK. I don't think the picture is quite as good as it was with my PS3 though. Overall it's a disappointment. I will end up replacing the power supply in my PS3 and using this as a back up.
Pros: Has many built in apps, plays discs, is small.
Cons: Slow random freezes requiring the unit to be unplugged to solve feels really cheap picture quality not up to a 5 year older PS3
Very pleased! This player offers very much in a small package and a pleasing price.
Pros: A lot for a little
Cons: None yet?
This product was a great price and once ordered, I received this device very quickly. It was very easy to set up and use. So far I am extremely pleased with my purchase.
This is such a fine DVD player at a reasonable cost. I love the smaller footprint and the simplicity of the interface. It installed very simply and was up and running in just a few minutes. I love Crutchfield's service as well! A+++ experience.
Plays all my DVDs and Blue Rays perfectly. Easy to use and hook up initially. We are thrilled, don't hesitate in choosing this player for your home.
Pros: Works great on all my DVDs and Blue Rays. Easy to operate and hook up initially. Very small profile easy to hide.
Great product, easy to set up, price is right
Great picture, just got the DVD player, this is a very early review. Very easy set-up, WIFI nice, liked the automatic software/hardware update. Only reason it's not a 5 star, is the INPUT control on the DVD player remote does not work with my Sony TV. I have the DVD player on the HDMI 3 port, and I still need to use the Sony TV remote to switch from the HDMI 1 (TV) to HDMI 3 (player), just annoying, especially since both units are Sony.
Pros: Great picture Very easy set-up, WIFI nice, liked the automatic software/hardware update
Cons: INPUT control on the DVD player remote does not work with my Sony TV
I like things basic and that make it a breeze to use without pulling out the manual. It is what I need for my system.
The player is an very good bargain for most DVD viewing. It is a basic unit without upscaling or 3D, but does have a wi-if connection. Construction is mostly plastic with a metal base and does not feel very solid. No panel displays except for the power on light. The unit is small and should fit in smaller spaces. This unit would best be served as a secondary player perhaps in a bedroom as was this purchase and especially for non 3D or 4K televisions.
Pros: Wi-if enabled Excellent picture Easy to use
Cons: Mostly plastic No Panel indicators Small remote
My first bluray player!! I trust Crutchfield's products and customer service, very happy will shop with you again
Great service from Crutchfield - as usual ! Sony DVD player works well and meets my needs exactly. I just wanted to have exactly the same interface to internet that I have living room ( which uses a Sony DVD player ) . Easy to set up. Gives beautiful pictures. A problem with delivery and Crutchfield immediately shipped another unit !
Very nice blu ray player for a good price!
Hello bought this Sony Blu_ray to replace an older Sony. The wi-fi is great, the True Dolby and Master Hd DTS that runs Thru my Sony HD surround sound works great! Thank you Crutchfield!
Pros: Simple to use, smaller takes up less space as older Blu-ray
Cons: Remote is smaller , could be a little bigger, button seem close together.
The unit is nice and small and compact. Set up was easy. Great picture on blue rays. Automatically reverts to the proper I put. I recommend this product.
Pros: Great picture, easy set up
Bought this product for ease to connect to internet s For netflex. Easy to use bought a different brand and took it back after hours of not being able to connect..
great for the price. small enough to fit in a tight space. Great audio and visual.
So easy. play good . nice program . small size DVD player
Easy installation, ease of control, good picture
Pros: ease of installation, use. Good picture
Cons: none so far
It is a quality product at a value price. Setup was easy ... just give it about two minutes to initialize the setup routine. Does not have as many streaming sites as my Apple ... but it has the big ones. Wifi connection was good and seemed fast enough. Bluray and DVD play was automatic. The device is easy to use and works well.
inexpensive blue ray player has all the built in apps i need great value. Crutchfield always easy to do business with
Pros: inexspensive, goodapps, great picture, easy set-up
Cons: non sofar
Arrived on time . Works great. Better than the old Sony it replaced after getting fried by a power surge following Hurricane Matthew. 5 stars and thank you Crutchfield.
This is a great little player for the price. I got it for playing DVDs and streaming Netflix. I connected it to my WiFi without a problem, entered my Netflix password and it was good to go. So far I have only used Netflix because I already had an account, but there are many other services available.
Pros: Easy to set up, great price and lots of streaming services offered.
Delivers as promised. Excellent quality. I buy from Crutchfield whenever I can, excellent guidance on ourchase and by far the best support compared to anyone with installation.
Pros: Excellent quality for price
Works great, just hooked it up without a hitch. Customer service was the best, too! I recommend.
Pros: Easy to hook up Great price Works great, too.
This little dynamo is everything other 5-star reviewers have said. Easy to set up - well, easy if you read the instructions first. The instructions are clear. We have not yet explored all the streaming options available, and there are many. But for simply watching a DVD movie, our primary purpose for its purchase, it works like a charm. Definitely highly recommend.
Pros: Small; easy to operate; included set up instructions are clear; sharp picture and sound
Outstanding service and delivery from Crutchfield. Product work right out of the box with minimal fuss, no need for advanced knowledge or training. Very satified with performance
Quick setup. Almost did it all by itself! Watched Netflix and Amazon with not a problem at all. Haven't gotten a Blu-ray disc yet, but the streaming was my main objective.
Pros: Quick setup and easy to use
Cons: None yet
the sony BDP S3700 blue ray disc player arrived very shortly after ordering. the player was easy to set up and it works very good for netflix movies. i have always had great service and products from crutch field
Pros: easy setup and it works great
I'm surprised by how well it works, compared to it's price. Works great on my wireless. I got another one for my son in Minneapolis.
Pros: Small, good wireless receiver for Netflix, etc.
Small, compact and simple, the only downside I can see is that you can't tell if it's playing or not. It does not have any digital display.
Great BluRay/DVD player for price. Wanted a small component to fit in a compact place and it works great. Haven't figured out how to program it to work with Bose universal remote yet, but still trying.
Pros: Small size Great picture and sound Price
Cons: HDMI cable not included.
I was little skeptical as to the unit being a quality piece. The price was more than reasonable, so I said to myself " try it". The unit is a real bargain as it produces excellent sound and a quality picture. i have an demanding sound system and this unit really produces great results . Do not let the price and size fool you as it is well worth your attention.
Pros: Excellent sound and great picture.
Cons: Does not have all the features more expensive and larger units have. But it does not have price tag of those units either.
This bluray player works well and is compact and light weight, perfect for our RV.
Pros: Reliable Sony and the play all format Bluray
Cons: None so far
Does everything that it's supposed to do, in about 20% of the size and less than 1/3 of the price of the unit that it replaced.
Pros: Size, features
Not an OPPO, but for the price it's a good buy. Replaced a much earlier Sony unit that was very slow had unreliable WiFi. Works great but locked up once. That meant reset of Amazon, Netflix, and I Heart Radio. Picture quality is very good and audio is excellent.
Pros: Cost, Video and Audio quality very good.
Cons: Locked up once. Had to reset apps.
Great little blue ray player. We like having the ability to watch movies on discs, our external hard drive and on netflix.
Pros: Sony Included apps via WiFi.
Cons: I do wish that the USB port was on the back instead of the front.
Perfect for the price
Pros: Quiet running and great video quality
Cons: Nothing bad to say
This player had all the features that I wanted. Plus, with the 48 inch Sony TV I just purchased from Crutchfield, this player matches up with TV.
Pros: It's a Sony
