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.
Sony BDP-S6500 3D 4K Upscaling Blu-ray Player with Wi-Fi (2015 Model)
  • This player will also up-convert your .jpg pictures via its USB to 4K if they are high enough in resolution. Really spectacular on a good 4k TV.
  • Incredible resolution, as new technology.
  • We have a 4K television and the resolution is excellent through the Blue - Ray. Very glad we bought it.
  • You can use Wi-Fi or a wired Ethernet connection to connect.
  • My greatest concern of the Wi-Fi was it's ability to maintain a connection to my network (I have experienced issues with other video products).

What customers say about "Features"
Sony BDP-S6700 4K Upscaling 3D Streaming Blu-Ray Disc Player
  • Very happy with the build in apps that come with it.
  • I like it very much for that front USB port for reviewing my HD video edits.
  • Has a usb port in the front which makes it convenient to plug into.
  • It has many of the standard apps for streaming and can use Ethernet wired or wifi wireless connections to access the streams.
  • I like how it is so easy to use. But also I like its bluetooth a lot. Everything is works great and awsome.
  • 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.
Sony BDP-S6500 3D 4K Upscaling Blu-ray Player with Wi-Fi (2015 Model)
  • The BDP6500 plays DVD’s and Blu-Rays just great, I couldn’t be happier with the playback from them.
  • But for Blu-rays and connecting video files via usb on front it's great.
  • You can use Wi-Fi or a wired Ethernet connection to connect. I tried both, and naturally I got better image quality from the wired connection, although the Wi-Fi image was still pretty darn good.
  • Nice Remote control – feels good in the hand, and has on/off volume and input controls for multiple TV brands (not only Sony).
  • I bought two movies that are in the 4K format and when I insert either one into the player it says that no disc is found. I could only watch the movies using the standard Blu-ray discs.
  • I do have a complaint about the apparent lack of ability of using USB wireless keyboards to type instead of having to use the arrow buttons on the remote to navigate the on-screen keyboard, which is cumbersome and really stinks.

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!
Sony BDP-S6500 3D 4K Upscaling Blu-ray Player with Wi-Fi (2015 Model)
  • Make sure your audio system will accept HDMI or digital in if you plan on connecting it to surround sound.
  • But the real reason I purchased this is that it plays SACDs, connecting to a receiver over an HDMI cable.
  • This one is compact smaller than a Verizon router and works perfectly with one HDMI cable.
  • It would be nice if it provided audio out other that by HDMI or Digi Coax.
  • However, on the back there is only a coaxial output, hdmi port, and ethernet port. I was looking for something i could run the sound seperately to my surround sound.

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.
Sony BDP-S6500 3D 4K Upscaling Blu-ray Player with Wi-Fi (2015 Model)
  • The remote is cute, small, but easy to use despite not being back-lit.
  • I like the very useful submenu under OPTIONS on the remote.
  • It produced a great picture, has a very intuitive user interface, and nice remote.
  • I find the remote control very adequate in size and function.
  • Don't lose the remote--you can't play SACD's without it. You don't need to have the TV powered to listen to SACD's but you do need to hit the play button on the remote to get things started.
