I bought this player to stream netflix in additional to play blueray discs. For netflix it seems to be dumbed down, i.e. I bought this device because it was at the top of the list as best blu-ray players.Well it has been a real pain to watch movies from Netflixs.

This player does not play anything except blu ray disks and store bought movie dvds. It does not play dvds you make on pc from your video camera.

"I have had my Sony 550 for about 6 months now, the picture and sound on some movies just blow me away. I tried 4 different models in one month. "Im angry that this blue-ray player doesnt have slow motion. My 30 dollar dvd player does. Im going to take it back.

"Buy the 550 over the 350. You will get the memory card and all the updates pre-loaded. For me it was worth the hassle.

This arrived today. I had it plugged into my LCD TV and playing my Pandora station in less than 30 minutes! I have a Sony surround sound, a regular Sony DVD player. I just got a newLED tv and a Blue-Ray player by a competitor as a gift.

The Sony Blu ray Disc Player is fantastic. I have bought this dvd player so I could watch netflix on my t.v. I have to say that it is amazing.
AB 4:15am on Thursday, March 18th, 2010 
My opinions for Sony BDP-S350 are as following: 1.smaller.Although the S350 has already learned that compare to before ,it used thin design.

Focusing

Focus detection zone

Auto Focus

The camcorders Full Range AF system offers continuous shooting ability from close-up to infinity. However, correct focus may not be obtainable in the situations listed below (in these cases use manual focusing): When two subjects overlap in the same scene. When illumination is low.* When the subject has no contrast (difference in brightness and darkness), such as a flat, one-color wall, or a clear, blue sky.* When a dark object is barely visible.* When the scene contains minute patterns or identical patterns that are regularly repeated. When the scene is affected by sunbeams or light reflecting off the surface of a body of water. When shooting a scene with a high-contrast background. * The low-contrast warning appears.
If the lens is smeared or blurred, accurate focusing is not possible. Keep the lens clean, wiping with a piece of soft cloth if it gets dirty. When condensation occurs, wipe with a soft cloth or wait for it to dry naturally. When shooting a subject close to the lens, zoom-out first ( pg. 18). If zoomed-in in the auto focus mode, the camcorder could automatically zoom out depending on the distance between the camcorder and the subject. When Tele Macro ( pg. 28) is activated, the camcorder will not zoom out automatically.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation. Change or modifications not approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the users authority to operate the equipment. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.. do not subject to unnecessary shock.. avoid repeated charging without fully discharging.. charge in an environment where temperatures are within the tolerances shown in the chart below. This is a chemical reaction type batterycooler temperatures impede chemical reaction, while warmer temperatures can prevent complete charging.. store in a cool, dry place. Extended exposure to high temperatures will increase natural discharge and shorten service life.. avoid prolonged uncharged storage.. remove from charger or powered unit when not in use, as some machines use current even when switched off.
It is normal for the battery pack to be warm after charging, or after use.

About moisture condensation. You may have observed that pouring a cold liquid into a glass will cause drops of water to form on the glass outer surface. This same phenomenon occurs on the head drum of a camcorder when it is moved from a cool place to a warm place, after heating a cold room, under extremely humid conditions or in a place directly subjected to the cool air from an air conditioner. Moisture on the head drum can cause severe damage to the video tape, and can lead to internal damage to the camcorder itself.
Serious malfunctioning If malfunctioning occurs, stop using the unit immediately and consult your local JVC dealer.

1 INSERT BATTERY

Compartment door
Slide the battery cover up to remove it, and install one AA(R6) size battery as shown in the illustration at left, then reattach the cover. Slide the latch to open the adapter compartment door, then insert the cassette and close the compartment door. Load the cassette adapter into the VCR and play the tape back as you would any other. Slide the latch and the compartment door opens automatically. This may take around 10 seconds. Do not attempt to force the adapter open. Then, insert your finger in the hole on the underside of the adapter as shown in the illustration at left, and push up and remove the cassette.

TROUBLESHOOTING

If, after following the steps in the chart below, the problem still exists, please consult your JVC dealer. The camcorder is a microcomputer-controlled device. External noise and interference (from a TV, a radio, etc.) might prevent it from functioning properly. In such cases, first disconnect its power supply unit (battery pack, AC Power Adapter/Battery Charger, etc.) and clock battery; and then re-connect it and proceed as usual from the beginning.

SYMPTOM

POSSIBLE CAUSE(S)
The battery pack has not been attached correctly ( pg. 8). The battery pack is not charged ( pg. 8). The power supply has not been correctly connected ( pg. 9). The battery pack has completely discharged. Remove the cassette and disconnect the power source, then after a few minutes, try turning the power back on. If it still does not come on, consult your nearest JVC dealer.

No power is supplied.

The power suddenly goes off and does not come back on by itself.
Recording cannot be performed. Make sure the Erase Protection tab is in the position that allows recording. If not, slide the tab. Some cassettes have removable tabs. If the tab has been removed, cover the hole with adhesive tape. The camcorder Power Switch has not been set to CAMERA (AUTO or PRO.) ( pg. 16). Before recording in the Animation mode at the very beginning of a tape, set the camcorder to the Recording mode for about 5 seconds, so that the tape runs smoothly. Using the Fade-in function at this point is a good way to begin an animated program ( pg. 39).
Recording does not start. Animation or Time-Lapse is not available.
The tape is running, but there is no playback picture. Playback picture is blurred or interrupted. The counter indication is blurred during Still playback. The TV has not been set to its VIDEO mode or channel. If A/V connection is used, the TVs VIDEO/TV Switch has not been set to VIDEO. The video heads are dirty or worn out. Consult your nearest JVC dealer for head cleaning or replacement. This is normal.

TAPE TRANSPORT

The tape stops during fast-forward or rewind. Rewinding or fast-forwarding cannot be performed. The Counter Memory Function has been activated ( pg. 42). The tape is already fully wound on one reel or the other.

TROUBLESHOOTING (cont.)

SYMPTOM POSSIBLE CAUSE(S)
Press DISPLAY for longer than 1 second to make the indications appear ( pg. 17). The battery pack is running low. If the LCD monitor is not open over 60 degrees, the EJECT Switch does not function. The Power Switch is set to AUTO. Certain combinations of modes or effects are not possible to use. This sometimes occurs when the contrast between the background and the object is great. It is not a defect of the camcorder. Sunlight is directly entering the lens. This is not a defect of the camcorder. The light used to illuminate the LCD monitor causes it to be hot. Close the LCD monitor to turn it off or set the Power Switch to OFF, and let the unit cool down. The LCD monitor and the viewfinder are made with highprecision technology. However, black spots or bright spots of light (red, green or blue) may appear constantly on the LCD monitor or in the viewfinder. These spots are not recorded on the tape. This is not due to any defect of the unit. (Effective dots: more than 99.99 %.) This may occur when the surface or the edge of the LCD monitor is pressed. Wipe them gently with a soft cloth. Gently wipe in a semicircular motion, as wiping strongly spreads the stain and it wont come out easily. This is normal while recording in the EP mode. Some noise may be present while recording in the SP mode ( pg. 12). Turn the camcorders power off, then disconnect the power source. After a few minutes, try turning the power on again. If the error number still appears in the viewfinder, consult your nearest JVC dealer. The diopter needs to be adjusted ( pg. 15). The scene being shot is adversely affecting the operation of Auto Focus ( pg. 34). If you remove the power source from the camcorder while the power is on, all settings and selections are erased. Make sure to turn the camcorders power off before disconnecting the power source. If you have not performed Date/Time Setting ( pg. 11), the date and time are not displayed/recorded correctly. Be sure that Date/Time setting is carried out. The Lens Cover Warning indicator may blink when the camcorder is used in dark areas, regardless of the position of the lens cover.

During recording, the indications do not appear. The tape will not eject.
Some functions are not available.
Vertical white lines appear when shooting a very bright object. Bright, crystal-shaped spots appear in the LCD monitor and the viewfinder. The rear of the LCD monitor is hot.
Colored bright spots appear all over the LCD monitor or the viewfinder.
The indicators and the picture color on the LCD monitor are not clear. The LCD monitor, the viewfinder and the lens have become dirty (ex. fingerprints). The picture is blurred in the Quick Review or Retake mode. An error number (i.e. E03) appears.
The image is out of focus.
The date and time displays disappear.
The wrong date and time are displayed/recorded. Even though the lens cover is open, the Lens Cover Warning indicator blinks.
