Anonymous from Holmen, WI on 8/14/2017

Don't buy the Sony BDP-3700! And, based on problems reported in Sony's on-line "community" with other BDP-37xx models, I'd stay away from those as well. I bought two of these units in early 2016. One failed within warranty - Sony honored the warranty and fixed it. Second one failed just barely outside of warranty, and they won't replace it. I won't spend a cent on fixing a clearly poorly made product.

Wade from San Diego, CA on 7/27/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Satisfactory as a DVD player (have no Blu-rays to try) -- equal to a 12 yr. old Panasonic, but painfully slow to "boot". As an out-of-date 20-yr. career IT person heavily involved with data communications, I consider the network interface to be seriously flawed from a privacy/security perspective. Since I currently do not have an Internet speed to support streaming, I do not plan on using this feature. (!) Connectivity can not be turned off/on as you might do with a PC (delete the MAC address from your router, or do a Reset to Default Factory Settings to turn off); (2) The startup screen contains over 2 dozen "Favorite Apps", none of which can be deleted (each a possible hacking portal?); (3) p. 33 of the Operating Instructions seem to imply the player could change network settings of the router when using WPS for setup (sounds a bit like the software problem with PCs until the late 1990s).

Pros: USB nice to view pictures. (Mixed results for .avi video: camera source OK, but commercially converted 8mm not so - codex problem?). Controller can also control (Toshiba) TV.

Cons: Slow "booting". Network connection implementation.

Impressive detail.

Johnny from Bessemer, AL on 7/16/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Instruction manual is about like most of those I read for players which meant there is a LITTLE information lacking. However, it was very easy just using eyes to connect and it works just great. Still got to go through all of the on-screen prompts to fine-tune it if you use it for internet etc.

Pros: Simple

Cons: Printed manual short on info. but you can get around it.

Enjoying this Blu-ray / DVD player. Quality device with wi-fi that makes my non-smart TV a smart one. Remote has programable TV / Input buttons to minimize remotes while using it. Dimensions are small so it takes up little space. Less expensive units exist, but the added wi-fi was worth the upgrade

Pros: Dimensions Wi-Fi capability Remote

Chub from North Branch, MN on 7/2/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've only had this machine for a few weeks, but I have used it a lot, and in every way I anticipate using. It's small and squarish. I hooked it up, connected to wireless easy, and performed an update before using. The Netflix interface is much faster than my 2013 model. I run the sound into a receiver and the hdmi into a tv. I play a variety of dvds and bluray discs, along with streaming Netflix. The remote is easy to use. Nice to purchase something that does exactly what it claims to do. 5 stars because I have found no problems. (Crutchfield packing was top-notch, much better than Amazon)

Pros: Works as advertised

Cons: None so far

Works great for accessing Netflix and other apps on an older tv. Haven't tried a DVD in it yet.

Pros: I bought this so that I could access various apps like Netflix and Pandora. Works great

Cons: I haven't played a DVD in it yet, so can't really comment on it.

Jeff from Myrtle Beach, SC on 6/5/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When it comes to home electronics I am " Joe Dope " but this little Sony unit was very compact, easy to find a good spot with all the other things such as cable box, modern, sound bar,ect. The set up was extremely easy. Plug in the power source, run the h.d.m.i. cable to the t.v. and your done. Programing the unit to the t.v. was a piece of cake. ( it might have helped that I happen to have a Sony t.v . but I'm sure it would be just as easy). So, in closing if you are looking for a nice little, compact blue ray player, don't pass this one up.

Very satisfied with Sony Blue-ray DVD player

Barbara from Redding, CA on 4/17/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We got the Sony Blue-ray player and have been using it about a month now. It was amazingly easy to set-up. I don't know the technical terms, but it seems to be able to pull the contents of Netflix and other programs from the internet much faster than out previous model, causing far less interruptions. It does take more time to boot up when we first turn it on, but that's not a huge problem. We have not played a DVD on it yet but so far we do like the player.

Pros: Set-up is amazingly quick and easy. Streaming is powerful so less interruptions in programming.

Cons: takes longer than expected to initially boot-up.

This player rocks. Loads very quickly, and this was an "open" model. Good news is everything was still wrapped up brand spanking new.... probably doesn't happen 100% of the time but hey it did for me!

Pros: Great picture, loads quick,

Cons: Menus are a little confusing

Great Upgrade!

Don from Greenville, IL on 3/14/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This player replaced an older Samsung Blu-ray and there is no comparison in picture quality, audio, or available apps. The Sony is really great! The video upconversion is a real plus for our DVD collection of older titles. Set up was very easy (using ethernet) and the multi-brand remote works fine with our Samsung TV.

Pros: Picture, audio, physical size, PRICE

Cons: none

Really good value

charles from Lindenhurst, NY on 3/11/2017

Very surprised that a player at this price performs so well. Even though the remote is kind of small it mates well with my Sony TV for volume, on/off and input. Crutchfield is a great store.

Bryan from Incline Village, NV on 2/13/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a solid unit. I now own two of them. It's probably not the model that you'll buy for your home theater setup, but for the money, it's a great option for less demanding needs. The built-in WiFi is a great feature, and the setup was painless.

Pros: Great bang for the buck

Cons: There are better options (if you are willing to spend a lot more money)

Never had a blue ray player. After reading reviews, chose this one. Happy we did. Works excellently. Have not played any blue ray discs yet, but the dvds we have watched have been up-converted and they look so much better than when played through just a dvd player. Set up was easy. Highly recommend.

Poor Quality Product

Chris from Charleston, SC on 1/21/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product gave me problems from the day I received it. The unit won't power on unless you disconnect & reconnect the power supply or the hdmi cable. It is also very noisy when in operation. Apparently even if you receive a defective product, you have to pay a $10 return fee to exchange it or get a refund. So I guess I will continue to plug & unplug the power to use this product.

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Product Quality & Return Policy.

Crutchfield response on 2/6/2017 Chris, we're sorry that the Blu-ray player didn't work. We have set up a return and waived the return shipping fee.

Very nice machine! Small and compact but does everything it needs to do. Is excellent at playing older, damaged discs. I have an old copy of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (the BBC version) that would not play under any circumstances on my old player; it plays flawlessly on the Sony. Excellent Value!

Pros: Crisp, Clear Picture Great Sound Absolutely simple to set up and use

No Need for a 4K Disk Player

Jeff from Oklahoma City, OK on 1/17/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Blue-Ray player was perhaps the easiest component to hookup that I have ever purchased. It merged seamlessly with my 4K Samsung TV and and my wireless internet connection. The picture was up-converted about as clearly as one could ask, and the small footprint took up a minimal amount of space in the TV stand.

Pros: Ease of installation; excellent picture; small footprint.

Cons: Nothing worth mentioning.

A small compact DVD player with excellent wireless capability. Nice way to make a non smart TV smart as well as gaining a DVD player. Priced right. Easy installation by following prompts. Updates software through internet connection when needed to keep product current. Would be nice if remote was larger.

Pros: Wireless capability.

Cons: Small size remote control

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great little unit! Though we were mocked by our children for wanting to keep the ability to play DVDs (old school, we know!), this unit answers that need, allows us to play our CDs (for which we were also mocked), AND replaced our Roku unit with all the streaming access we need. It was super easy to set up and is easy to use. And even better was the service we got from Crutchfield; we just told them what we wanted to do and what our budget was, and they gave us great options -- and even remembered to add cables to the cart, which we would not have thought of. Can't say enough about this company; they were a great find!

Gene from Hilo, HI on 12/29/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm glad I didn't pay that much. It's very slow. The built in apps are super slow to respond and the unit randomly freezes and the only way to get it going again is to unplug it. The blueray portion is OK. I don't think the picture is quite as good as it was with my PS3 though. Overall it's a disappointment. I will end up replacing the power supply in my PS3 and using this as a back up.

Pros: Has many built in apps, plays discs, is small.

Cons: Slow random freezes requiring the unit to be unplugged to solve feels really cheap picture quality not up to a 5 year older PS3

Great picture, just got the DVD player, this is a very early review. Very easy set-up, WIFI nice, liked the automatic software/hardware update. Only reason it's not a 5 star, is the INPUT control on the DVD player remote does not work with my Sony TV. I have the DVD player on the HDMI 3 port, and I still need to use the Sony TV remote to switch from the HDMI 1 (TV) to HDMI 3 (player), just annoying, especially since both units are Sony.

Good Bargain DVD Player

Anonymous from Ladera Ranch, CA on 12/13/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The player is an very good bargain for most DVD viewing. It is a basic unit without upscaling or 3D, but does have a wi-if connection. Construction is mostly plastic with a metal base and does not feel very solid. No panel displays except for the power on light. The unit is small and should fit in smaller spaces. This unit would best be served as a secondary player perhaps in a bedroom as was this purchase and especially for non 3D or 4K televisions.

Pros: Wi-if enabled Excellent picture Easy to use

Cons: Mostly plastic No Panel indicators Small remote

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great little player for the price. I got it for playing DVDs and streaming Netflix. I connected it to my WiFi without a problem, entered my Netflix password and it was good to go. So far I have only used Netflix because I already had an account, but there are many other services available.

Pros: Easy to set up, great price and lots of streaming services offered.

Cons: None

Delivers as promised

Works great, just hooked it up without a hitch. Customer service was the best, too! I recommend.

Pros: Easy to hook up Great price Works great, too.

Cons: None

Great decision.

Elizabeth from Fredericksburg, VA on 9/26/2016

This little dynamo is everything other 5-star reviewers have said. Easy to set up - well, easy if you read the instructions first. The instructions are clear. We have not yet explored all the streaming options available, and there are many. But for simply watching a DVD movie, our primary purpose for its purchase, it works like a charm. Definitely highly recommend.

Pros: Small; easy to operate; included set up instructions are clear; sharp picture and sound

Cons: None

BDP-S3700

Larry S. from Spring, TX on 8/7/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was little skeptical as to the unit being a quality piece. The price was more than reasonable, so I said to myself " try it". The unit is a real bargain as it produces excellent sound and a quality picture. i have an demanding sound system and this unit really produces great results . Do not let the price and size fool you as it is well worth your attention.

Pros: Excellent sound and great picture.

Cons: Does not have all the features more expensive and larger units have. But it does not have price tag of those units either.

Video Section

HDMI 1.4: The BDP-S3700's HDMI 1.4 output simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio in one cable. The HDMI resolution can be fixed at 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, or set to Auto, which selects the highest resolution accepted by your television.

  • Precision Cinema HD Upscaling: Through the HDMI output, the BDP-S3700 is capable of upscaling the resolution of your standard DVDs. Output options include Auto (highest resolution accepted by the TV), 1080p (60 Hz video or 24 Hz), 1080i, or 720p. If necessary the output resolution can also be set to 480p or 480i. You can also choose to bypass the Blu-ray player's scaler, so the source material's original resolution is passed to your connected TV.
  • 24p Output: Movies are typically recorded on film with a frame rate of 24 frames per second. When a movie is transferred to Blu-ray Disc at 24 frames per second the BDP-S3700 will output that signal to the TV (if the TV will accept the 1080p/24 format) with no need for conversion.

Connecting the player and a TV that supports Deep Color via HDMI allows more accurate color reproduction than when connecting it to a TV that does not support Deep Color.

You can choose Full or Normal (select when connected to a TV with a wide mode function; displays a 4:3 screen picture in 16:9 aspect ratio even on a wide-screen TV) or Normal (changes the picture size to fit the screen size with the original picture aspect ratio).
  • DVD Aspect Ratio: You can select the display configuration for playback of 16:9 screen pictures on a 4:3 screen TV. You can select from Letter Box or Pan & Scan.

Video Settings: The BDP-S3700 offers the following video adjustments:

  • BNR: Reduces the mosaic-like block noise in the picture.
  • MNR: Reduces minor noise around the picture outlines (mosquito noise)

Cinema Conversion Mode: The Sony Blu-ray player offers two Cinema Conversion Modes - (1) Auto mode automatically detects whether the material is video-based or film-based, and switches to the appropriate conversion method. (2) The Video mode is suited for video-based material and will always be selected regardless of the content.

My other blu-ray player is out of date.[ Annabelle  Dec 12, 2016 ]
I did not need the 4K uplift feature for ultra high definition tv, therefore, I went with a unit that did not include this feature. The Sony was highly recommended on the Crutchfield website with 5 stars, with a discounted price, so I chose it.[ Horace J.  Dec 09, 2016 ]

I needed a replacement for my old player. This one was a decent price, with excellent reviews. Glad to be a Crutchfield customer. Your website has by far the best - most thorough and relevant - information on electronics.[ Catherine  Nov 28, 2016 ]

I was looking for a combination Blu-Ray player that also had streaming wi-fi services, and specifically something that would let me use my Amazon prime video without adding another device (because I'm out of ports!) This seems to fit all those requirements.[ Karen  Oct 09, 2016 ]

Good customer ratings and simple instructions in downloaded user manual.[ Michael  Sep 15, 2016 ]
Wanted to try BluRay movies and also wanted to watch Netflix on the bigger screen. Hope is a good choice, since was recommended on the website. Also, my older dvd player has been acting up for some time. Have to keep it, because it also plays vcr tapes, which I still have a few after purging most last year.[ Sandra D.  Sep 02, 2016 ]

It does play the DVD - discs but I don't have any DVD + discs, so I'm not sure if it plays them. [ JOHN J  Jul 07, 2017 ]
Easy hookup and operation, works well.I would give it 5 stars.[ Cornelius  Jan 04, 2017 ]
I love this player. It's simple to operate and yes there is an indicator light letting u knowvits on or off. Talks well to the TV. An uncomplicated delight!!![ JOYCE  Jan 04, 2017 ]
If u have a smart TV u can access YouTube. I watched YouTube music videos and it was easy to use.[ JOYCE  Jan 04, 2017 ]
Hi Michael, You can access YouTube on the Sony BDP-S3700 with no subscription if you have Internet. The device works well 95% of the time. The other 5% of the time, the device freezes-up (buffering) during viewing youtube. I went from wireless to wired with an expensive cable with no improvement. Its kind of a trade-off, you get to watch youtube on your TV except you must accept buffering. And i have Comcast high speed internet.Maybe think about buying a different brand of Blu-ray player.[ Daniel  Jan 03, 2017 ]
Yes, YouTube is a built in app. Any streaming service that requires a subscription still requires one with this device. To use Amazon prime you need an Amazon prime account. Same with Netflix, etc.[ yz400e  Jan 03, 2017 ]
As long as you have the player connected to your wireless router, yes you can access YouTube at no cost with no subscription needed. Make sure you check and update the player's firmware update because Sony has had some problems in the past on this player with YouTube functionality. As for other streaming services, some are free, such as basic Hulu and some are fee-based, like Netflix.[ Gregory  Jan 02, 2017 ]
