Sony Blu-ray stopped reading after 14 months

Richard Massa, Amazon
10 November 2010
  • Summary: Beware of Sony Blu Ray! There is a good chance it will die soon after the warranty expires! Most company's will extend the warranty if its within a month or 2, NOT SONY! Support is the worst in the industry! Very strange this happens more then the feedback states here on Amazon???

Biggest waste of time

Reagan Podelec, Amazon

  • Summary: Well before, I bash the thing to death let me say, when it did play movies, it was short of breathtaking. My Toshiba AX2 is breathtaking! Anyways, the player performs fairly easily on most Blu-Ray titles. Here come the spin on everything. Recently did a firmware update at the service center because I noticed it was having difficulty playing some movies, and could't retreive any special features.

Comapre withPanasonic first

  • Summary: I have both Blu Ray players in my rig . The Sony is much inferior due to lack of gamma control , picture and sound quality is already not as good as Panasonic. the Panasonic has a built in scaler that is incredible. If you can compare chapter nine of Kingdom of Heaven on both players. The Panasonic can display tremendous color in dark scenes that just appear drab on Sony. I was disapponited because this is suppode to a "Reference " player.

Der BDP-S1 - Ein Player, der gut überlegt sein will!

Jens R. Jobmann "Montezuma", Amazon
29 September 2007
  • Summary: Viele loben hier das tadellose Bild,den guten Sound und die sehr gute Verarbeitung, man sollte aber auch mal die leider "sehr vielen" negativen Aspekte ansprechen. 1. Zukünftige Firmware-Updates (sehr wichtig bei Blu-ray..bessere Kompatibilität für neue Filme, neue Funktionen wie HD-Tonformate, etc.) können nicht selbst durchgeführt werden, wie bei allen anderen Playern anderer Hersteller. Nein, der Player muss dafür extra bei Sony eingeschickt werden. 2.

Don't make it a Sony !

DVD Nerd, Amazon
13 July 2007
  • Summary: Die Erwartungen waren hoch und wurden nicht im geringsten erfüllt. Die Bildqualität ist bei Standard PAL DVD's nahezu miserabel. Es gibt kaum Einstellmöglichkeiten zur Verbesserung. Die Farben sind teilweise verschwommen, Artefakte und Bildrauschen inklusive. Das kann jeder Player um 50 Euro besser. Noch schlimmer ist, dass das Blu ray Bild gerade einer hochwertig gemasterten PAL DVD entspricht, die auf einem guten DVD Player (z.B Denon 2930) läuft.
