This is Great Blue-Ray Player, and Great Buy at the price. Sony runs it own software on the Blue-Ray Players similar to what on the Ps3's so they have several different applications installed, and have a history of releasing updates pretty quick. It also was easier to use to me. I enjoyed being able to download the remote application offered by Sony to my cell because I always misplace that darn remote. This Blue-Ray player is great, and one that I enjoy hope you do also.
