Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Cons:

Great when it worked!

Harold from Williston, TN on 5/7/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Nice unit, weak wireless

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.

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.

Cons: None

Perfect for our needs, great value.

Andrew from Piedmont, CA on 4/2/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

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.

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

Steve from Sioux Falls, SD on 1/14/2018

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

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.

Crosse from Ashland, MA on 12/11/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Everything on this player works great. DVD, Blue-Ray, WiFi, with my 10+ year old Sony Bravia LCD.

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

Mike from Westborough, MA on 9/5/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Nice little DVD player for a great price!

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.

Wade from San Diego, CA on 7/27/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Impressive detail.

Johnny from Bessemer, AL on 7/16/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Pros: Simple

Cons: Printed manual short on info. but you can get around it.

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

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.

Very satisfied with Sony Blue-ray DVD player

Barbara from Redding, CA on 4/17/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Great Upgrade!

Don from Greenville, IL on 3/14/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Cons: none

Really good value

charles from Lindenhurst, NY on 3/11/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

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)

Poor Quality Product

Chris from Charleston, SC on 1/21/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Pros: Inexpensive

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.

No Need for a 4K Disk Player

Jeff from Oklahoma City, OK on 1/17/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

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!

Gene from Hilo, HI on 12/29/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

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.

Good Bargain DVD Player

Anonymous from Ladera Ranch, CA on 12/13/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

HDMI 1.4: The BDP-S3700's HDMI 1.4 output simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio in one cable. The HDMI resolution can be fixed at 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, or set to Auto, which selects the highest resolution accepted by your television.

  • Precision Cinema HD Upscaling: Through the HDMI output, the BDP-S3700 is capable of upscaling the resolution of your standard DVDs.
