Cons

"Photo" menu option lacks native support of many common services - Flickr, Picasa and Photobucket are not available despite support on other Sony models

2 agree

Player may get stuck in power-up or power-down modes - "Welcome" and "See You" greetings sometimes remain on the display, requiring a hard reset via power disconnect

2 agree

Users lacking a high-quality router/internet connection may encounter sub-par functionality - slow load times, choppy rendering and low picture quality are common to this circumstance

2 agree

Stock background browsing image is extremely bright - not recommended for users with plasma TVs or other models prone to burn-in issues
