Works, but slow, probably better out there

Andrew Hipius, Amazon
21 September 2013
  • Summary: This player worked great when it was new and one of the latest on the market. But over the years it has become very slow to load, especially newer disks. It's also not that easy to update the players software, and it acts a little more like a small computer than your stereotypical DVD player. Years later now (I know, why did I wait so long to write a review) there are faster more refined Blu-ray players out there on the market.

Unstable and glitchy

Dell, Amazon
5 January 2010
  • Summary: Bought this unit for two reasons because it was on sale and it was Sony. While the Picture is flawless and the sound is great, it doesn't always work as it should. I have had problems with this unit not reading some Blu-ray movies. I thought since it was a brand new movie maybe the movie was defective so I returened it to the store and got another new one. When I put it in it did the exact same thing.

  • Summary: Sony's BDP-S1 Bluray player's built quality is like other flagship products (in the ES series) they built: SCD-1, DVP-S7000, DVP-S7700, DVP-S9000 etc. (Sony tends to build their first generation machines with every tools they have, but...) After V3.7 firmware update, I would like to report the following (seen on my LG 32LC2D LCD TV set at 720p): 1. booting procedure is a little faster: about 50 seconds (not the first time booting). 2. disk loading takes about 20 seconds.

Sony BDP-S1

  • Summary: I have a Sony Bravia HDTVand had a regular DVD player. Everything I played on it was crystal clear anyway. I upgraded to BluRay when the old DVD player died. To be honest, it's o.k. I paid $346 for it, so I can't really complain. But it's just o.k.

Mejor una PS3

barre1968, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Este reproductor se precia de ser el primero de Sony en Europa, y mi cuñado el cinéfilo uno de los primeros primos que cayeron, a mi modesto juicio comprándose un reproductor Blu-ray, en lugar de una PS3 y así poder matar dos pájaros de un tiro, y si finalmente el formato no triunfa, como creo que ocurrirá, al menos tienes una magnífica videoconsola.
  • Pros: Calidad de imagen y sonido .
  • Cons: Tamaño y precio .
