While I like the features and reviews on the Best Buy website, I’m wondering why these are labelled as “refurbished” here on Woot.
I love the price so responses might influence my decision to purchase.
People got them home and hated them. They got returned, sent to a “refurbisher” where they were tested, a clean remote with fresh batteries are thrown in along with a new power cord and other things like a user manual.
Many times the serial number tags are removed and maybe replaced with a different one denoting refurbished.
After all of that, they are thrown in a debranded (white) box and loaded into a tractor trailer that ends up at some nondescript warehouse somewhere at the edge of a big city. Drab huh?
An agent for Woot or other reseller is notified of the availability and a deal is struck for some sort of split with the liquidator to sell them and the liquidator often dropships the item to the end user.
The specs say DLNA for photos only but further down it says it is compatible with streaming.
I made some inquiries (I know some folks way-up-high at Sony, ya see?) and here’s the skinny. The first thing they do at the factory before packaging is “furbish” the item. This is a type of nurturing / positive reinforcement for newborn electronics. If after this process, they still do not act right, they might be returned for a “refurbish”. In short, you may get a problem child, you may get a “re-educated” child. Good lock!
Maybe they means as opposed to “non-DNLA photos”…and by the way, we also gots some streamin’. That work for you, Nutty?
It can stream from a variety of online sources (Hulu, etc.) but that doesn’t mean it can stream from DLNA media servers.
If it says DLNA for photos only I’d assume no DLNA for video or music.
Physical media is dead.
My roommate bought this exact model. Haven’t accessed the web with it yet but dvd function was fine.
I’d wager some people returned these due to there being no buttons other than eject on it. You lose the remote, it’s a paperweight.
fwiw she paid 27.00 more new
Don’t do it, if you’re expecting online streaming! YouTube is no longer supported on this model. Sony also no longer supports it. The streaming sucks. Avoid.
I was about to get it for my dad to be able to stream his WWE-Network. Looks like it’s a Fire Stick for Pa’s wrasslin’.
Eh-hem. “Super WiFi”?
It’s like 6-million dollar man…

Did you type that from a physical keyboard or just wish it into existence?
The tray lock in demo mode sold me…
Fair warning. Just received an email an hour ago from Amazon stating that they are going to remove the apps from a whole list of Blu-Ray players on Sept 14th. Received notice for Sony and LG players. They are not going to support many (is this one? don’t know but if they do it at all it’s a shame). They could just leave the app on the machines but they are going to actually have them removed when they check in. Crazy stupid but here is their email:
We’re writing to let you know that the Amazon Video app will no longer be available on your Sony Blu-ray player after September 14, 2015.
This means you won’t be able to stream movies and TV shows directly from the Amazon Video app on your Sony Blu-ray player. As we continually seek to improve our service, this occasionally means we can no longer support certain devices or features.
You can continue to stream Amazon Video on hundreds of other devices, including newer Smart TV and Blu-ray models, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, Roku, game consoles, Android and iOS phones and tablets, and your computer’s web browser.
