Sony BDP-N460

CNET
2 September 2010
  • Summary: The Sony BDP-N460's attractive mix of Blu-ray performance, relatively low price, and streaming media options--including Netflix--make it a solid midrange pick, despite some missing features.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality on Blu-ray movies; streams Netflix, Amazon Video On-Demand, YouTube, Slacker, and NPR; relatively inexpensive given its suite of streaming features; Profile 2.0 compatible; onboard decoding for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Sony BDP-N460 Review

Digitaltrends
10 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Sony basically pioneered Blu-Ray disc technology so it stands to reason that they would be a trusted maker of quality Blu-Ray disc players. However, consumer level Blu-Ray players from Sony and others have historically been slow, clunky and often manufactured on the cheap to make the new technology more affordable for understandably reluctant buyers.
  • Pros: Excellent Picture Quality, Intuitive, easy-to-use on-screen menus, Extensive access to on-line media (Video and Audio), Superior YouTube interface, Excellent value
  • Cons: Typical slow load time, Limited Netflix interface, HDMI cable not included

Sony BDP-N460 Networked Blu-ray Player

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity
22 April 2010
  • Summary: Overall, the Sony BDP-N460 is a very solid entry- to mid-level blu-ray player. It is quick and responsive, has very respectable video performance, and comes with some nice bonus features like Netflix, Amazon VOD, and loads of free Internet video content. As a multimedia device, however, it falls short of my expectations.

Sony BDP-N460 Blu-ray Player

Sound & Vision Magazine
15 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Sony sells seven stand-alone Blu-ray players, ranging from its entry level BDP-S360 ($150, HT, July 2009) up to its Elevated Standard BDP-CX7000ES MegaChanger ($1,900, HT, March 2010). But one of the biggest complaints against Sony’s BD players has been the lack of networking features. Well, Sony has addressed that complaint with the BDP-N460.

10 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Sony was the pioneer of the Blu-ray technology but now they have been surpassed by Samsung, LG and Panasonic. The company makes another attempt with BDP-N460 to top the Blu-ray player market. It’s streaming services including NPR, Slacker, YouTube, Amazon VOD and Netflix and challenges LG BD390 at low price. There are a few shortcomings though, the BDP-N460 does not have inbuilt storage, Wi-Fi, network media streaming and multi-channel analog outputs.

Sony BDP-N460 Network Blu-ray Disc Player Review

BigPictureBigSound
5 December 2009
  • Conclusion: The BDP-N460 gets a lot of things right but it's not the slam dunk I was hoping for from Sony. Speedy boot-up and shutdown times are a huge plus and I was largely impressed with the unit's internet streaming capabilities. However, the unit's lack of onboard memory and its recessed, inconvenient USB port feels like poke in the eye. Not helping things are the chintzy front panel buttons and a mediocre, non-backlit remote.
  • Pros: Fast boot and shutdown times; blazing fast disc load times, Robust internet streaming capabilities - including Netflix & Amazon, Improved Netflix Watch Instantly queue browsing
  • Cons: No onboard memory for BD-LIVE, Recessed USB port out back is destined to annoy, Video menu comingles disc playback with Internet video channels, Lacks multi-channel analog outputs
