      I have read the reviews and cannot agree with them. Perhaps the newest firmware version updated a lot of items people complained about. I can watch Netflix without having to Queue. I can search for items as needed and add them to my Queue if I like. I have had a great experience with my player thus far. I am very pleased.

      Blu Ray functionality is great… web apps are HORRIBLE. One of the main reasons I purchased the unit was the variety of web apps it offers. Unfortunately, their poor functionality has me regretting this purchase. The Netflix app will only display what you have placed in your instant queue via your computer. The Hulu Plus app refuses to refresh and sync with the changes you have made via your computer. It also doesn't respond when you delete/remove items from your queue. I've even gone as far as deleting our account from the Blu Ray player's app and reconfiguring it. That didn't correct the issue. Unfortunately, I've had to move my son's XBox back into the living room in order to use our Netflix and Hulu Plus accounts. I would not recommend purchasing this unit if you are interested in using its web apps. THEY ARE WORTHLESS!!!

      Very Disappointed

      By MrCanoehead

      from St. John's, NL, Canada

      Comments about Sony BDP-S380 Smart Blu-ray Disc Player:

      I like my player. I have found one big glitch. " No HDCP compatibility". I ordered a movie on the Qriocity which is owned by Sony and cannot play it because my device is not HDCP compatible. The HDTV I bought 6 years ago is HDCP compatible, why would this new player not be? Sony you need run a script on your site to detect this problem before you take my money. Hoping to get a refund.

      disapointing experience

      By SamB

      from Aiea Hawaii

      Comments about Sony BDP-S380 Smart Blu-ray Disc Player:

      I rushed to the NEX to buy this supposedly WiFi Blue-Ray player and got home hoping to watch Netflix. Instead I found out that this Blu-Ray player is not WiFi capable without an extra part that doubles the price of this thing. The packaging and ad should point this out, but it doesn't.

      No HD through component video

      By rbkay78

      from Albuquerque, NM

      Comments about Sony BDP-S380 Smart Blu-ray Disc Player:

      I specifically bought this BD player for the component out as I have an older TV that does not have HDMI. After an hour chatting with customer support, they let me know that you CANNOT get an HD signal out of the component out video. What is the point of even having the jacks on there?! No where is this mentioned on the packaging or in the documentation.

      Works Great for Netflix

      By Popeye

      from California

      Comments about Sony BDP-S380 Smart Blu-ray Disc Player:

      I was worried after reading some of the earlier reviews about compatibility issues with Netflix, but after speaking to Netflix they told me that Sony has upgraded everything to make it fully intergrated with Netflix. I will try Hulu next.

                Comments about Sony BDP-S380 Smart Blu-ray Disc Player:

                Warning: I purchased this player to watch movies using Best Buy's CinemaNow streaming service. Although the service is listed as being supported on the player's box, when I tried to use CinemaNow I received a message that the service was "coming soon". Sony customer support then told me CinemaNow is not supported on ANY of their 2011 Blu-Ray players and could not say when the service would be available.

                Great player

                By Crazy4bluray

                from Oakland, CA

                Comments about Sony BDP-S380 Smart Blu-ray Disc Player:

                It does what it was meant to do and that is play Blu-ray DVD's. The load time is pretty much instant (seconds) compared to my old Blu-ray player (2 yrs old), which took a 3-5 minutes between load times. I was suprised at the menu screen. Looked like I was playing on my PSP. The picture looks a lot more smoother too compared to my old one. I guess I just needed an upgrade. The slim design is great. All the other ones I've seen are so much bulkier and look like they were meant to make you cappuccino's for the extra $100-200 to watch with your movie. I dont care to much about the web apps or the wifi connectivity, all that seems like extra fluff to help it sell... and besides you have to pay for those services, so why bother. If you just want something to play Blu-ray DVD's, then this is a great player. The price is decent and at some stores you can find it for sale at around $100. No issues... yet
