Summary: If you're looking for something that wont break the bank with the highest quality product, here it is. Sony's BDP-S1 Blu Ray player will stand the test of time. This product has the attributes of muscle and quality. The picture quality is superb compared to any of the newer models.
Summary: I purchased this unit that was used as a store demo so it was basically new. The firmware at that time was 2.0. I used it and it seemed slow to load. I updated the firmware to 5.6 and boy did that make a BIG improvement on loading times.
Summary: I purchased this unit 3 yrs ago for $250.00. Orig: $1,000.00. I had heard about and read about all the issues that plagued this player. I have enjoyed pristine blu ray video and audio, and outstanding upconversion with this unit.
Summary: My question is that blue-ray could reproduce movies of all regions, i mean, movies in the Unites States are region 1 but it changes depends of the country, but i want to know if it plays all regions movies!!! Thanks
Summary: Pictures do not do it justice.You will have to see Sony's BDP-S1 in the flesh to appreciate the fit and finish.Unfortunately when the market catches on, Blu Ray players will weigh about the same as an average laptop and feel flimsy.Just compare Toshiba's current Hd dvd players to their earlier...
Summary: I own this unit for about 8 months, it great. With a high def TV great combo to see the Blu-ray movies especially 300, Blackhawk Down and Kindom of Heaven. Sony has updated the firmware twice already so it has kept up with the technology. Updating isbrezze.
Summary: About two months ago, I bought my Sony Bravia XBR2 46 Inch 1080P TV Set. Last Saturday, after some research (between HD and Blu-Ray), I decided to make jump I got my Blu-Ray Player. Now the big question was selecting between this model and the BDP-S300.
Summary: I have purchased numerous DVD players throughout the years and the Sony Blu Ray player is by far the best out there. It gives me the most clear HD picture far surpassing the old SD DVD players.
Summary: First I got the Sony Bravia Tv then I got the Sony Blue Ray (second generation) disc player. It's so good that I may stop watching regular TV and watch Blue Ray disks only. My goodness, the picture is ..... wonderful! I want to watch it all the time its so good.
