$50 for a refurbed Blu-ray with Wi-Fi is a good deal. It was $80 for a Sony refurb @ Frys last week... The best deal I ever got was $38 on an LG (refurbished).

If anyone honestly believes you can find a top name brand RETAIL Blu-ray WITH built in wifi for $50, you're on something.

TonyC 02-14-2013 08:45 PM

I'm in, needed a blu-ray player.

pobonilla415 02-15-2013 03:46 AM

This is a great deal, esp with Prime members. Not all brand name BD players have Amazon VOD. Also, this thing is very speedy. Only drawback is that it is wide, my previous Sony BD is 2/3 the size of this unit

Satisfied customer, so I'm getting another one.

immrB 02-15-2013 06:00 AM

Sony removed Amazon VOD from my Dash at last update. What are the chances they will remove access here too?

kbfirebreather 02-15-2013 06:03 AM

I assume since this is a Sony player that it would be on the lookout for Cinavia issues?

My $17 refurbed magnavox blu-ray player just died on me after only seeing a handful of blu-rays. I guess I'll give refurb one more try. Thanks!

stimpy 02-15-2013 07:03 AM

my brand NEW LG died after 13 months ... we'll give this a try ... didn't think I'd be giving Sony another try, since their DVD player (that I tried) were CRAP!

rolfeskj 02-15-2013 07:03 AM

Got one to pair with my dumb TV. Wife is getting interested in streaming movies.

megamanny2000 02-15-2013 07:03 AM

How does this compare to Amazon deal for the Sony BDP-S590? Is there a big difference?

I think the S590 just really ads 3D. 3D is going away pretty quickly at this point.

I've have mixed luck with Newegg refurbs. I was shocked to see my refurb Kinect sensor with almost no packaging to hold the unit in place. Fortunately it worked.

The reviews suggest that the packaging for this unit was horrible. Just cautioning folks jumping in...

dong 02-15-2013 07:29 AM

no 3D? pass

Thanks. I agree.

However I also saw the poor packaging reviews. Grabbed the 1 year warranty for $10.

BluRay player internet streaming video services
 
Yes, most new BluRay players have Amazon streaming. Here is a quick chart showing Sony streaming features and comparing to other BluRay players. Note chart is outdated and Panasonic has new services. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_1...rs-review/
S390 is similar to higher end Sony BluRay players except it lacks features you do not need such as 3D and 4K. http://reviews.cnet.com/blu-ray-p...18513.html

In for one. Thought about being this unit from BB earlier in the week as they had it on sale for $89.99 I believe.

Glad I waited

Bobby_Pro 02-15-2013 07:40 AM

Though am skeptical about refurb blu ray players, $50 should be the deal.

leadfoot46 02-15-2013 07:58 AM

BlakesPoorBrain 02-15-2013 08:05 AM

I have this player, works really well. Have had no problems with it. I have the 590 as well, and I think the 390 boots for me faster.

Ih8reb8s 02-15-2013 08:17 AM

It appears to play SACD over HDMI as well, which is a factor for me. Good deal.

lestermahoney 02-15-2013 08:20 AM

Can you buy 2 at this price? I went back to order another and there is an issue with the coupon code.

pdinc 02-15-2013 12:20 PM

Does anyone know if this is a SATA Blue-ray drive inside?

janusman 02-15-2013 12:26 PM

It even plays movies from select streaming sites I have tried..

Others - it gives error saying "get flash player".

The mobile remote app 'Media App' works really well in navigating the UI.. The best is that you can browse to some page in your mobile and "catch & throw" it to blu-ray player and viola - the same site is on big screen now..

AmericaRocks 02-15-2013 12:27 PM

Thanks, been looking for a couple good players with WiFi. In for 2.

Troder 02-15-2013 12:29 PM

You will probably be buying mine if you do this deal.....sent mine back because it would not power up after a week.....very common with the 390 and 590 model.

I do like the Sony though because it will play just about any video format I plug in the USB port on the front. I just purchased the new model that came out this week (BDP-S1100 $89.00). Does not have WIFi but a $20 adapter will work if I need it.

kamputar 02-15-2013 12:39 PM

It's not a real deal. It's for people knowingly trying to rip-off Amazon. At least, the one I'm aware of is.

It was posted. Not everyone received the rebate as it was not instant. It has since been removed from the product's webpage.

Good information for those who want to wait until next year to buy.... /shakeshead.

Peeptastic 02-15-2013 02:36 PM

Is it worth it to get the warranty? I got this earlier, but now I am thinking that maybe I should also get the warranty. I think we have 30 days to decide. This will be my first blu-ray player. From what it sounds like, blu-ray players don't last as long as vcr's or even dvd players, so I may be replacing this in a year. But I don't want to pay money for the warranty if it won't be honored later on. Thanks in advance.

redboar 02-15-2013 02:43 PM

I bought this crappy player from Target and returned it within a week. Has a lame facsimile of PS3's interface & menu but with grainy looking VGA style graphics. Strange little hiccup whenever I paused a Blu ray disc and hit play. Netflix support is awful - fast forward and rewind have no preview like the PS3 does. I bought this thinking I can give my game system a break on using it for Blu ray movies and ends up, even my ancient Philips Blu ray player with no Wifi and no online apps has better performance with discs. Skip this model and wait for the quality 3D players to start breaking the $100 price threshold instead.

Older players seem to be made more "solid", plus the pre-2011 players often have the component video out for which the MPAA made an agreement with manufacturers to leave out, due to the supposed ease of creating illegal copies/rips through those cable outputs. I shopped for a new one and gave up when I realized, they are all flimsy and have so much plastic in them they may as well double as food storage! :shake:

scurrier 02-15-2013 02:50 PM

I remember when I had a Sony BDP series bluray player. It committed suicide one day while updating its own firmware. Best $100 I ever spent.

medicswife2002 02-15-2013 03:31 PM

I got the same model only with 3D yesterday on Amazon for 44 dollars (after they credited me the 50 dollar rebate that they stripped from the product page) and a 20 dollar VOD credit - so net of 24 bucks (we use the VOD all the time) :)

This was a large thread from yesterday.

There are many wi fi Blu-ray players hitting below the 50 dollar range.

As far as warranties go, DEFINITELY get one. I have almost everything in my house warrantied via SquareTrade. They frequently throw out 30% codes....and rarely up to 40% ones.

They just had a 35% one for Valentine's Day, I had a new item and waited it for the code (you have 30 days to buy a plan from date of purchase).

We have my Keurig machine, our snowblower, all of our phones, and every piece of electronic equipment warrantied through them.

I love having their user interface to view all my products on their site, they store receipts, and I have made 3 seamless claims with them since 2008; including one for my last blu-ray player which has decided to die. I had it for 14 months, I paid 79.99 for it. I filed my claim online two days ago and ST emailed me a shipping label, I packed it up and shipped it away.

They did a full payout this time and said they're paying me my 79.99 in full plus 5% extra if I agree to accept an Amazon GC code instead.

I did some digging and to warranty this player (since the final price is under 50) for 2 years is 5.99 plus tax (without any codes which I would personally wait for). Or alternately, you could get it for 3 years for 8.49.

I love this company. It makes me feel better about buying refurbs.

Good luck!

SuperTroller 02-15-2013 03:36 PM

I bought one of these earlier today, now I can move my LG into the bedroom so I can stream Netflix :)

Sony's interface is way better than LG's, I regret getting rid of my BDPS370 for it. Hoping this is as solid of a player as the 370 was.

Pod_Dog 02-15-2013 05:22 PM

I don't think most people are aware of what Cinavia is. PIA if you bought a street dvd and are expecting it to play. Or if you make copies of your own DVDs. Still it is cheaper than a Roku box.

Mariss716 02-15-2013 07:28 PM

Pretty bad feedback on how NewEgg sends this, just in the brown box with NO protection whatsoever. Was about to buy one as a gift but I don't want the hassle of a damaged shipment.

Decide.com does give the S390 an 87 rating, (top 3 of Blu Ray players, the other top sub-$100 was the S590).

This is a *$50* item, not your next born. Square trade is incredible over-kill at this price point. Not anywhere near the hassle of finding the latest discount and signing up. YMMV

I bought this thinking I can give my game system a break on using it for Blu ray movies and ends up, even my ancient Philips Blu ray player with no Wifi and no online apps has better performance with discs. Skip this model and wait for the quality 3D players to start breaking the $100 price threshold instead.

how big is this? I was thinking about just grabbing another roku but this has blu-ray player for the twice a year I actually use a disc

In for one. Also going to grab a squaretrade warranty..

My current LG BD-650 couldn't play a DVD after like 100 days.. It had 90 days labor coverage on a new unit.. Called LG and they wanted something like $80 for labor + s/h for service... what a deal!!

From what I've read on Squaretrade's website, they don't directly offer warranties on refurbs. Refurbs are only covered by Squaretrade warranties offered by the retailer.

SquareTrade offers Protection Plans directly for new items only. Some of our resellers offer Protection Plans on refurbished items, given that the item was also purchased through that reseller. Used items are only eligible when purchased on eBay.

well, I bit. it looks like the netflix support does feature the ability to search, unlike the older netflix implementations, and it will play SACD's.

thanks OP!
p.s. code definitely still works...

flyingroach 02-16-2013 06:22 AM

I already have a $30 insignia wifi blueray that is really great for kids Netflix, YouTube and DVD. I think roku or Xbox is better but some insist on bringing disks to house.

Hope this Sony is easy to use for amazon VOD even though no dedicated button.

davidbix 02-16-2013 02:15 PM

I have one of these (bought new at Amazon for $90) and $50 for a manufacturer refurb is a great deal. Fast Blu-Ray load times, great selection of streaming video and music services, solid DLNA format support (plays some stuff PS3s don't, like MKV files and 50hz videos), SACD support, HDMI CEC support, and more. I wish it played SACD-R discs (at $50 I'd jump on another one to put in the room where I have a PS3 so I could play those), but otherwise it's awesome.

econsumer 02-16-2013 02:18 PM

Finally bought it. I hope it works well. I had a Roku before. Since some of you have used it before, if I only need Amazon Video, Netflix, Hulu, and Crackle, is this going to be a good alternative? Since this player has all those apps and it also can play Bluray, it might suit my needs more than a Roku.

I've read the older firmwares work with SACD-R.

ansonyuhas 02-16-2013 06:33 PM

I believe I have as well, but is it possible to flash it with older firmware if mine has newer firmware or should they all come with SACD-R compatible firmware if you don't flash it?

I guess I can use my Discover card and use their return guarantee if it has newer firmware...

davidbix 02-16-2013 07:48 PM

Googled around...

http://code.google.com/p/sacd-rip...blePlayers

Quote:

Sony BDP-S380 with latest firmware M06.R.0624 still plays SACD-R.

If you've upgraded a Sony BDP and SACD-R has stopped working, you can burn a firmware CD and force a downgrade at any point. You can upgrade/downgrade as often as you need.

BDP firmware archive: http://www.mmnt.net/db/0/0/ftp.va...HAV/BDP/FW
So if this model ever supported SACD-R, then that's a yes.

Yes, I have read the reviews (like this one) and the Panasonic DMP-BDT220 and Sony BDP-S390 are the ones that bubbled to the top (bluray/streaming [netflix/amazon]/wifi).

My refurb BDP-S390 arrived today (double boxed w/brown packing paper) and looks like new. Came in original box with instructions and RCA cables. So far everything seems to work fine, including blu-ray playback, wireless hookup and streaming of netflix/amazon instant video.

HalfAmazingOne 02-18-2013 05:35 PM

Got this today... They weren't kidding about the poor packaging. Let's hope it works. -_-

Sent from Slickdeals App for iPhone & iPod Touch.

MrBlackFriday 02-19-2013 09:16 AM

lol packaging is ridiculous. Mine was worn and damaged all over, looked like the box was from world war 2, but the player looks great. Really good bluray player deal, especially if Sony keeps updating the firmware.

davidbix 02-19-2013 11:15 AM

Mine was shipped in the retail box but the player itself looks brand new. Next step: Downgrading the firmware.

davidbix 02-19-2013 12:50 PM

UPDATE: Actually...maybe not. See reply...

What I posted before playing around more:


Downloaded and burnt what I believe is the last SACD-R capable firmware (M11.R.0320, the player came loaded with M11.R.0369, the first version to block SACD-R) and it won't let me downgrade, saying the player is already updated. So I guess the Google Code SACD-R comment was wrong? Or is there a way, like via a service menu?

I guess I can use this for pressed SACDs or give it to my sister (she was gonna order one but it was sold out by then). Still, blech.

davidbix 02-19-2013 02:07 PM

GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE!

While. out of the box, the player wouldn't even recognize SACD-Rs as valid, I decided to try a SACD-R in my other, fully updated BDP-S390, which is connected directly to a TV. It recognized the disc as a SACD, but gave me a "No sound will be output to the device connected via HDMI" error. It did output SACD audio over the analog outputs.

Since something was working in the updated/direct to TV player, I updated the refurb, which is connected to my Onkyo TX-NR515 receiver. It plays SACD-Rs perfectly in both DSD Bitstream and decoding to LPCM 176.4 kHz. So yes, with the current firmware (M.11.R.0422), SACD-Rs work perfectly if the BDP-S390 is connected to a receiver, which you're using if you care about the feature, anyway. It's weird that it gives a HDMI copy protection error connected directly to the TV, though.

Pickngrin 02-19-2013 06:42 PM

Mine arrived today. It was in the retail box, which was partly open. Fortunately, the player looks brand new (but has the refurb sticker underneath) and I'm watching Amazon Instant Video now... awesome! Thanks again, OP.

SuperTroller 02-19-2013 08:14 PM

Got mine today, hooked it up this evening. Netflix streaming only works for a few minutes at a time before it stops and buffers, after which it plays for a few more minutes before buffering and only playing audio. It does this through Wifi and being connected through an Ethernet connection.

Getting sent back to Newegg tomorrow.

synikil 02-20-2013 06:48 AM

Got mine yesterday. This is a great unit. I had issues with "the A/V receiver displays LPCM or stereo instead of Dolby or DTS" and just called Sony up and they checked my blu-ray player settings and determined it was a receiver setting. They transferred me to their receiver (it's a Sony STRDH520) department and after trouble-shooting for about 10 minutes they determined the correct fix and it sounds and looks amazing.

I plugged in a USB hard drive and played several mkv movie files and they sound and look way better playing from this unit when compared to playing directly from my computer.

Netflix worked great too.

Seems like it could be a problem with your internet service provider and lack of internet speed.
Who is your ISP and what is your internet speed throughout different times of the day?
Go to www.speedtest.net and let us know.

get2Brad 02-20-2013 02:01 PM

What bothers me is that Newegg sells this device claiming:
Limited Warranty period (parts): 90 days
Limited Warranty period (labor): 90 days
In the box I received was a warranty insert that says the player has a 30 day warranty. Hopefully Newegg will stand behind the for 90 days. I don't think these were refurbished by Sony, not sure if 3rd party refurb is a common practice. Often times when the manufacturer refurbs an item, they'll put new parts in or on the item. For instance, if the case is scratched, they'll replace that piece.

It has nothing to do with my ISP, my service is fine. I purchased this player to replace my LG BD550, which I was going to move upstairs to the bedroom using the wireless gaming adapter I am currently using downstairs in the den. The LG works fine, the Xbox 360 works fine, it's a problem with this player.

rolfeskj 02-20-2013 04:21 PM

Got mine today. Double boxed but the inner sony box was in bad shape. The player was wrapped in bubble wrap, no original packing. The player was in good shape itself. Only problem I hit so far was that someone else registered it so I cant get the registration number. I am guessing these were not reconditioned by sony. Still a good buy but not great.

econsumer 02-20-2013 04:52 PM

Don't forget to register the device and get three months of Hulu Plus free here:

Mine had already been registered. I had to call sony support but it was easy and I got my free 3 months. It was funny, the blu-ray player had not even been set back to defult settings. Might be worth getting that one year warranty on it.

flyingroach 02-20-2013 07:59 PM

Mine too. Player was wrapped in bubble wrap inside original box. No outer box, USPS just dropped between front doors and ran. Player still had plastic wrap on it.

Seems to work very well after firmware update and a few reboots. Amazon HD VOD, Netflix. HuluPlus looks great. Played VOB DVD rips on usb hard drive, mp4, mp3, aac, music on network from pc. Hulu didn't give me referal code so perhaps player was used but I hate hulu plus and it looks new.

Streaming is great Netflix always is on all my devices, but amazon isn't usually. This works in HD better than my tablet and pc do in SD using flash. Android app is fine, Windows Phone app doesn't work (not official)

My connection should be crap. I'm travelling so used buddy across street FIOS wifi (about 50 yards away) using netgear bridge that is then wired to Netgear Powerline AV to back of house and to this. Still have the player showing 8-10Mbps.

I find the sony menus text too small for amazon/netflix but I was expecting that. Wish they would just copy or buy ruku interface. This sony does not pass the "good enough for mom test"

Ruku is best for most non geeks...but for family that insist they NEED DVD for the kids. This model should do the job. My $30 Dynex blueray has better netflix menus that even my mom...and 4yr old kids can use.

This sony has amazon VOD. I just bought The Walking Dead this week episode in a few clicks on this player. Exactly what I wanted..but only the 4-30yr old can use. All the moms said nope, cant read or understand how to navigate. (@#@##$!!!)

Good value, just get off the couch to read the small text then find a show and hit play. (Said me to pain in A$# family I give free stuff too!)

flyingroach 02-21-2013 09:54 AM

Enjoy region free DVD playback on your Sony BDP-S360!

Turns out it's not as impossible as you might think, it's just not very user friendly.

I will here outline how I did it, using my Harmony 525 remote.
Since this is reconstructed partly from my memory, it may not be 100% accurate, but with alittle faith it should be possible for anyone to do the same.
From I started searching forums til now took about two hours, so it's far from impossible...


First start by creating an account using the Logitech Harmony Software.
I recommend making a new account, if using an existing account I recommend deleting all activities and devices before starting.

Start out by adding a DVD player: Sony BDG-S360
It will automaticially be named "Dvd"

Then add another identical DVD player, it will be named "Dvd 2" (No, you don't accually need to own 5 physical players!)

Make sure you finish adding each player one at a time, instead of adding all 5 in one go.
If you add all 5 players in one go, the program will change it into one single composite device, and that will not work for this purpose.

Releat 3 more times, untill you have "Dvd", "Dvd 2", "Dvd 3", "Dvd 4" and "Dvd 5" added.

The reason you need 5 DVD players created, is because the website we're going to use next can only create one command for each device, and we need 5 commands.
If you try to add more commands to one device, it will just overwrite the previously created command for that device.
So 5 players are critical!

Now go to logitechs online webinterface and login using your harmony account created earlier:

http://members.harmonyremote.com
(If it says it found a software update, just click next...)

Now go to the "Secret" Infrared page:
Logitech® Harmony® Member Web (members.HarmonyRemote.com)

Click the "Select an active device" link, and select "Dvd"
Click the "Manual" button

There are now 3 input-fields you can enter text into, click on the last one "Data Value:" (Below "Pronto") and copy/paste in the following codes:
Click Process
It will show some more codes, telling you it was successfully converted - Click Next

Now type "Hack 1" in the "Name:" field, and click the "Add" button.
It will now tell you that the command was added successfully. Click Next

Now click on the "Current Device:" link - Should say "Sony DVD (BDP-S360)"
It will show you a list of your five DVD players, click "Dvd 2"
Now Click "Manual" again, but this time enter the following codes:
Save this command as "Hack 2"

Continue untill you have created all 5 "Hack-codes", here are the final 3 sets of codes:
Sony Code 3: (Save on "Dvd 3" as "Hack 3")

Sony Code 4: (Save on "Dvd 4" as "Hack 4")

Sony Code 5: (Save on "Dvd 5" as "Hack 5")



Now you're done on the website, all five commands have been created.



Back in the Logitech Harmony software, create a new acticity, choose to manually add the activity.
Type of activity: Utility
- (Then choose "Generic Activity", the only choice available under Utility)

Now add all five DVD players to the activity (Click Add next to each of them, one at a time)

Click Save

It will now show you a list of settings, it should look like this:
Choose "Yes, but I want to add more control of options and devices for this Activity." and press Next

You should now be shown a list of actions that are to occur whenever the activity starts or stops.
It should be empty by now.
In the top half (actions that should occur when activity is started) choose "Dvd" and click "Add"
Choose "Send this infrared Command" and from the dropdown-box select "Hack 1" (Should be the last on the list). Click Next

Now select "Dvd" again, and click "Add"

This time choose Send this infrared delay: "1 second". Click next.
(This one second delay between commands is VERY important, this will NOT work without it!)

Now Select "Dvd 2", and click "Add"
Choose "Send this infrared Command" and from the dropdown-box choose "Hack 2". Click Next
Now Select "Dvd 2" again, and click "Add"
Choose Send this infrared delay: "1 second". Click next.

Now Select "Dvd 3", and click "Add"
Choose "Send this infrared Command" and from the dropdown-box choose "Hack 3". Click Next
Now Select "Dvd 3" again, and click "Add"
Choose Send this infrared delay: "1 second". Click next.

Now Select "Dvd 4", and click "Add"
Choose "Send this infrared Command" and from the dropdown-box choose "Hack 4". Click Next
Now Select "Dvd 4" again, and click "Add"
Choose Send this infrared delay: "1 second". Click next.

Now Select "Dvd 5", and click "Add"
Choose "Send this infrared Command" and from the dropdown-box choose "Hack 5". Click Next
Now Select "Dvd 5" again, and click "Add"
Choose Send this infrared delay: "1 second". Click next.


When done click "Save"

It will now show you a list of settings, it should look like this:
Choose "Yes, theese settings are correct" and click Next
Click Done

Optional: Click the "Settings" button next to the newly created "General Acticity" and choose "Rename General Activity" and rename it to "Sony Hack!" or whatever....


Click "Update remote" and wait for the remote to be programmed.
now you're done programming the remote!


Now go and turn on your TV and the Sony BDP-S360.
Wait untill you see the home screen on your TV, and make sure there are no discs in the drive, and that the drive is closed.
Now aim the remote at the DVD player, I recommend keeping a distance of about two meters, you be the judge of that..
Now press the new activity button, should be named either "General Activity" or "Sony Hack!" or whatever you called it.
Keep aiming the remote at the DVD player for at least 10-15 seconds.
The remote will blink alittle while it's working...

When the remote stops working, the DVD player should start blinking the blue light above the disc-drive - this means everything worked.
Now try inserting a DVD with a region-code you couldn't play before - it should now play!

Once you are satisfied everything is ok, turn the player off, and disconnect the power.
Then plug back the power and everything is good now.
(This last step is to stop the blue light from blinking while the player is turned on...)

Hank3 02-22-2013 05:58 AM

Set up was a breeze (firmware update and connecting to Wifi). Plays Blu-rays fine although I haven't tried any online content yet. The unit looks to be in brand new condition. The player had plastic film on it to protect it. The remote looks like it had never been used.

Overall, very happy with purchase...will be even happier if I can sell my S360 via craigslist to recoup the costs :)

I had this problem as well, it connects to the network fine but says no internet connection. After I set a static IP address, subnetmask, etc. it was able to connect to the internet fine.

It appears I'm the only one that got a bad refurb. It shows the bluray logo on boot up and then nothing out of the HDMI port which pretty much makes it useless. I can get video out of the RCA connection and have tried updating the firmware and all sorts of video settings but nothing with three different screens and 2 known good HDMI cables.

I am returning to New Egg for replacement but at $13 for return shipping not so slick :mad:

Get the warranty from Newegg, and get it fixed or replaced. Cheaper that way. But I am not sure if the warranty can be bought later after the product is purchased.

It appears I'm the only one that got a bad refurb. It shows the bluray logo on boot up and then nothing out of the HDMI port which pretty much makes it useless. I can get video out of the RCA connection and have tried updating the firmware and all sorts of video settings but nothing with three different screens and 2 known good HDMI cables.

I am returning to New Egg for replacement but at $13 for return shipping not so slick :mad:

screw that...Sony tried to get me to pay shipping on a return bluesy player once.... I said, wait, you sell me a unit that does not work out of the box and now I have to pay to ship it? Let me speak to a supervisor ( I always say sprvsr or district manager when complaining). They said, well, I spoke to my supervisor and they said to go ahead and do it an no cost.... If it was not working a few weeks/months after purchase, I could understand, but you just got the thing....

I only get 1 or 2 bars myself (computers get 4 or 5) but I get about 5-8mbps out of it.

Wouldn't play blu rays, sending it back. if you have ShopRunner do you have to pay for return shipping?
