What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sony BDP-S6700 4K Upscaling 3D Streaming Blu-Ray Disc Player
  • If you don't have a smart tv then make it smart using this player. Full HD 4K upscale is really great.
  • Nice and compact with smart features.
  • Not a bad player and the smart functionality is useful.
  • Very good resolution Blu-ray player. I would recommend it.
  • We enjoy our Sony streaming 4K wi-fi Built-In Blu-ray Player. Extremely smooth play back, razor sharp and looks sleek in our console.
Samsung BD-J6300 3D Wi-Fi Blu-Ray Player
  • I am using this on a LED TV that's not SMART capable so I now I have the Smart Hub and can stream movies and utilize all the apps.
  • Smart capabilities work perfect and I like the feature when you turn the player on it automatically turns my Samsung TV on. Very convenient and less buttons to press.
  • My daughter does not have a "Smart TV" and now she is capable of streaming shows using the popular sites.
  • Love the wi-fi feature. Had an older model I used with my smart TV. This helps so we don't have to continue unhooking & hooking up other devices. Also love the default apps.
  • After a cheaper model that wouldn't connect to wi-fi, I went with this version. No issues with it, great wi-fi reception and the upscaling looks great.

  • Good product. However limited in apps you can use.
  • Not a huge selection of apps, but the popular services are available.
  • Bluetooth is a little weak, other than that excellent.

What customers say about "Outputs"
Sony BDP-S6700 4K Upscaling 3D Streaming Blu-Ray Disc Player
  • Easy hookup with the HDMI port. Setup was super simple.
  • HDMI and Digital Coaxial Audio are perfect for my existing system.
  • Very easy to set up. Plug in power cord, then plug in HDMI cable to TV and now your ready to watch brilliant movies!
Samsung BD-J6300 3D Wi-Fi Blu-Ray Player
  • I had no trouble hooking this up to the HDMI cable for video output and the optical cable for audio output.
  • Plays DVD from HDMI cable hook up.
  • The only negative was that it didn't come with an HDMI cable and I was not aware that this wasn't included.
  • The one detracting factor is that an HDMI cable is not included with this player. I had to use one from another player I have in my bedroom to test this player out and use until my order for a cable arrives.
  • The player came with only an optical digital audio output, for which I had to buy a cable.

What customers say about "Accessories"
Sony BDP-S6700 4K Upscaling 3D Streaming Blu-Ray Disc Player
  • Really easy to set up. The remote control is a perfect size.
  • Nice quality picture with clear functional remote.
  • Nice small unit with user-friendly remote.
  • I found the remote complicated to use. Don't like all the buttons.
  • Remote is small with small and compact buttons so lowlight operation is difficult.
  • Works well, remote is kinda small though, also no display at all on the unit but preforms very well.
Samsung BD-J6300 3D Wi-Fi Blu-Ray Player
  • The remote is decent however and most will likely not use the control plate on the device itself.
  • The remote is kind of small, and the function buttons are smooth with the player, making them kind of hard to see. I use the remote and no problem.
  • Responds to commands from the remote without any delay. Compatible with cable providers universal remote.
  • Their remote cannot be programmed to use a non-Samsung TV. The Sony that preceded it had this capability (it would run non-Sony TVs).
  • The player has all the apps needed, but its remote is a little awkward to use.
  • The down side is there are no manual buttons so if the remote goes bad you're stuck.
