What the many customer reviews have influenced me, denominated of, intolerable operating noise and problems with hard drive detection etc. languages. Then I read in the last issue of AVF a test with 6 Blu-ray players - Sony (BDP S580) should be the slightest!?!?! Since I have dared and ordered from Amazon. Now the result: My BDP S480 is very quiet, not really listening, everything goes to the Internet and my 1TB ext. Hard disk is recognized easily. Now I am angry almost, that I have not already part rather bought.
